A wonderful introduction to India. My wife and I had e-mailed Jenny prior to our visit and we had discussed our preferences for a trip around Southern India. The result was an amazing custom built experience due almost entirely to Jenny's efforts. She is also a fabulous cook and hostess and her Homestay where we spent our first night was... More

Though this is listed as a hotel, the hotel isn't the main event. The hosts, Jenny and Jose, also arrange travel - and they are great at it! I am not one for group organised tours, but Jenny asks what you're looking for, restrictions, basic ideas, and then puts her knowledge of India and her vast network of connections to... More

Jenny organised our 5 day trip to Kerala, including a night at Le Royale. The hotel is a welcoming and beautiful homestay, and Jose and Jenny were wonderful hosts. The food is amazing! Our trip to Periyar and the Backwaters was equally comfortable. Jenny arranged lovely homestays (and houseboat!) throughout, and created an individualised itinerary that gave us a fantastic... More

I used Jenny as a tour operator for our round trip through Kerala and Madurai. We had a very knowledgable pleasant driver, everything went absolutely smoothly. I would recommend her to everybody. We were amazed by this trip and I cannot recommend working with Jenny enough as she was answering all my emails promptly and every request was met, everything... More

My husband and I used Fourens Travel, Jenny's Travel Agency side of the business, to arrange a car and driver for an 8 day trip to Karnatika and Kerela. Having used other companies in the past, I can say hand on heart that this was best car and driver service that we have used in India and highly recommend this... More

Le Royale had been recommended to us by friends and although we had been assured of a wonderful stay, we were still blown away by the beauty of the house, outstanding home cooking and quality of service. Jenny and Jose could not have been more generous and welcoming and looked after our every need. The room was spacious and the... More

Having stayed at Le Royale 3 times and enjoyed wondeful touring holidays organised by lovely Jenny and Jose, I had no hesitation returning there after my hubby passed away. It will be my first trip alone but I know I will be superbly looked after both in Le Royale and out with the lovely Sajeev.

We stayed at Le Royale early March for 2 nights. The lovely Jenny and her husband Jose are just delightful hosts. The tariff includes breakfast and dinner and what meals they were. You better be prepared to have big appetites and appreciate great food because that's what you're going to get. The house is wonderful and the upstairs room large... More

We had two nights at this lovely friendly guest house. Rooms were large and as grande as the photos. Food was fresh, homecooked and well prepared, specialising Keralan cuisine. We were able to stay with our three young children in one room. All the staff were very friendly and happy to help and advise on our stay if we were... More

We had a two night stay at Le Royale. The accommodation is lovely - the house is just as grand as it looks in the photos and the rooms were very comfortable (although note no wifi). The food was also excellent, although there was far too much of it! Le Royale is a short auto-rickshaw ride from the ferry terminal... More
