I was shocked when I entered the houseboat. It was old and dirty. Bedroom and bathroom was too small and suffocating. Although we enjoyed the nature while boat was moving till sunset, but time after sunset was horrible. They parked the boat somewhere, it was all dark and full of mosquitoes. TV was not working. We booked it through Yatra.com... More

This was our first experience of spending a day in a houseboat. Ours was a single room boat with a big bathroom, a dining area and a balcony on top of it. My wife was very content that the boat had glass boundaries at the dining area and was therefore safe for our 2yr kid. Balcony was comparatively unsafe for... More

Excellent food provided on boat. The staff - a driver, and two cooks which were there with us throughout were very polite. Rooms were clean. Nicely maintained. There was TV with a normal cable connection which was not that clear. The remote provided with the dvd player did not have cells, so it did not work! The dining area was... More

It was a decent houseboat ... staff was helpful and food was good. Rooms were tiny as would be in any houseboat ... cleanliness could be better. Houseboat had TVs but without satellite connections … they did provide some pre-loaded movies in USB (You really need them as night come early and you cannot do much reading as light is... More

I want to start writing with the fact that this was so bad, we wanted to runaway from the houseboat, by whatever means possible. I had booked a houseboat through makemytrip.com for meridien houseboat. The boat was supposed to pick us up at 12:00 clock but never showed up till 1:00 PM. The boat was very dirty, old, cheap, and... More

We booked river queen houseboats through a travel company planning our trip. We stayed in the houseboat for one night. It was nothing short of a nightmare. We were three adults squeezed into one tiny room. The extra bed was actually a mattress on the floor. The floor of the houseboat was very dirty and there were also cockroaches. The... More

The river queen house boats is really an experience in its own that cannot be imitated anywhere. It was a part of our 7 day tour in the greeneries ( arranged by Antilog vacations which gave a very good service).We stayed at many places but this was different. Traditionally the houseboats have been called Kettuvallam in Kerala which literally means... More

I found this good house boat. Boat was good in condition. Also sight seeing was great, I booked deluxe house boat, but on this AC was on for 9.00PM to 6.00AM only. I was worried about food as they are not offering choice for food only they offer south indian food. But food was good. This would be better if... More

As with other reviews here, we were also dubious about merely sending an e-mail and paying a deposit up front with no real booking acknowledgement. We really needn't have worried, we had booked a tour with these guys, so they arranged for us to go to Munnar with a driver, stay in a fantastic hotel and then be brought to... More
