The property is situated on the outskirts of Kollam Town down the Quilon-Shenkottah Road.
The hotel has a 3-star rating. The Bar is not fully stocked. Choice of beers and drinks are limited. The buffet however is different. We drove in for lunch and was not disappointed. There was no beef or mutton on the menu but the food was tasty. Soup, Rotis, Gopi manchuria, chilly chicken, chicken curry, chicken deep-fried, fried rice, dal, rasam, rice, tuna fish-curry, pickles, thoran, avial etc was all available for 299 rupees plus tax.
The service was neat. The toilets clean. There was practically no crowd to enjoy the menu. I suppose it was because of the weather. It was raining heavily.
Xavier's buffet spread is a good way to spend an afternoon with your family..once you work up an appetite!
