Enjoyed our stay with the family in their nice homestay which is so conveniently situated in town. Good sized room with wifi and tv. Mary provides an ample breakfast and the family go out of their way to assist in making bookings for the boat and suggestions for meals. Would recommend Venice Castle as a base to stay while visiting... More

Location is good..very close to the jetty. The owner, Matthew and the manager, Thomas, were very accommodating and helpful. They gave us a very good deal on the house boat and the food was really good. Rooms were nice and clean and we enjoyed our stay..a definite recommend!!

We felt like home away from home here, mom's breakfast was excellent, every day there was different south Indian breakfast, very well made. Thomas was very kind, our stay was originally for 5 days, we cut short our stay to go to Thekady, Thomas was kind enough to accommodate us without any charges. The room is spacious and location is...

Beautiful rooms, good wifi, hot powerful shower, very friendly and helpful host and quiet location - what more could you want? perhaps a lovely friendly dog called Julie! Great place. Will use this again.

This homestay is located in a quiet lane, just the singing from a temple nearby and the birds can be heard. But it is still near the bus station (walkable distance). The family is very nice, friendly and open. The breakfast the mother cooks is amazing! The room is spacious and a shared balcony on the first floor invites to... More

Venice Castle is a lovely place. It's a short walk from the buses, boats and places to eat. The room was a good size and generally clean. There was a nice balcony to sit and relax too As mentioned in previous reviews, the mosque is a little loud at 5am, but it isn't for long. After the first couple of... More

We booked this homestay the day before due to our plans to take a houseboat changed - and what a great thing that was!! It was to our advantage to stay here and take a shikara boat trip rather than join the hoards of houseboats on the lake. Thomas is a great and generous host - even offering to lend... More

We stayed at Venice castle for one night. At first we were dropped off at the wrong hotel but Matthew came to get us free of charge. The service and kindness of everyone there go above and beyond expectations. They helped arrange a taxi for us first thing in the morning and even still woke up to make us breakfast... More
