We visited this place long time back but i remember very well my experience since this place is unique in its own way. terrific ambiance, nominal rates, average food, good connectivity to the market place but poor service. The management gives importance to only foreigners (most of the foreign visitors are Europeans) and dont care 2 hoots about Indians and... More

This was recommended by the Lonely Planet but things have gone seriously downhill since their reviewers last visited! Talking to a few locals about it, it seems there has been a definite change in the last six months...and if things don't take a drastic turn for the better, I would not bother staying here. The room itself was clean enough... More

I stayed here with my friends for two days. On the first day we booked two rooms, one in the main building itself (quite an old room) and another one which is comparatively new. The rooms were really cheap and for that money the service and the facilities are excellent. The next day we took a bigger cottage. It was... More

We made the mistake of trusting the lonely planet guide too many times, and decided to stay here. The rooms were a good size, big bathrooms. I had to ask for clean sheets, as the ones in the bed had not been cleaned. We had no running water so the guy that worked there told me he had to go... More

This guest house is in a lovely large historic home and has the potential to be a nice place to stay. It has nice grounds as well but it would really make a difference if someone picked up the litter that is all around. I stayed in a cottage, one of the better rooms, but the cottage is not sealed...

I had been here on 1 of september along with my family. The guys here were extremely co operative polite and well mannered. Very natural ambience. It was a delight to be in Kerala especially at this place in Allepey. Food service was excellent and quick. i would definately come back here.

The Gowri Residence, also, I believe, known as the Gowri Heritage Hotel, was a nice escape from the noise of the busy city in which it is centrally located. The residence occupies a large area of land which offers both guest room and bungalow accommodation, all of which are situated in a lovely, serene garden setting that allows you to... More
