Thomas is a very attentive and friendly host who honestly cares about your wellbeing. Location is very central, bus station and station, but still very calm in a green backyard heaven. We enjoyed breakfast at the common table talking to other travelers. He was very helpful and made calls to plan trips on the public ferries even there was no... More

A great place to stay for travelers traveling to Allepey and backwaters. Situated in the center of the town but still is quiet and calm. The rooms are clean and quiet spacious. There is also a very nice balcony overlooking the premise. The Grandmaa's breakfast was really great. Thomas is always available with his appealing smile and if you are... More

Very comfortable rooms (nice A/C), clean and well managed. The place is away from Alleppey's hassle but just a couple of minutes from the centre. Thomas, our host, was super helpful. I give it a 8+ over 10. Very recommended.

This place is in a great location for those going for trips on the backwaters. The jetties are a walkable distance from Venice Castle. Rooms are decent with excellent AC and very comfortable beds. Superb breakfast provided. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating and help us arrange an excellent houseboat trip at a competitive price.

Not far from the bus stops on a quiet back street. Thomas' infectious warm smile will make you feel happy and at home. Close to some great eating choices. Really enjoyed my stay here and didn't mind the brief morning call to prayer.

Venice Castle is located in the very busy town Alleppey, although tucked in a little quieter path behind the busy mainroad. The House itself Is very nice, clean and well maintained. You will have a very clean room, with western standard bathroom and AC, which is needed! There is also a very nice balcony overlooking the premises, which is very... More

On 21st Jan 2015 we took one A/C Double Bedroom in Venice Castle. It is a good homestay. The room had neat clean bed sheets, towels and soap. Mineral water bottle was given. Bathroom was very clean and neat with hot water. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. A very smiling, Loving person Mr.Thomas takes care of the homestay.

We stayed there in 1st week of October. The place is well maintained and the owner Mathew is an awesome person. He was really helpful in helping us arrange a cab from allapuza to munnar and the stay was also really pleasant.

If you're looking for a midpoint between the beach and the backwaters, Venice Castle sits conveniently in the middle. It is neither walk-able though, so the host can arrange a tuk tuk for you, which takes you to either locations within 70 rupees if I remember correctly (10 min ride each way). The room was clean, bed was comfortable, wifi... More
