Try any other houseboat but not this houseboat. Owner is very rude. Electricity is available only till 11.30pm. After that electricity is completely shutdown. Worst service. Food is just just pathetic. Better to go on a fast rather than eating the food in this houseboat. these guys think tourists are fools.

Took good ownership, and cared for the place as his own and was sure to take care of your requests. The food service is homely.. and limited to vegetarian or non-vegetarian (chicken).. Do... More
