We had zeroed in on Allepy for our anniversary and wanted a short and sweet, no frills holiday for 3 days. TA again came to our rescue in selecting this place. The reviews were good so booked a month in advance. Was exited about the bamboo rooms but didnt take a chance with the heat so booked the ground floor... More

The room itself is very basic, AC in ground floor was comfortable. Bathrooms were not great, dusty, water was very slow in tap. The boat house experience was awesome. Decent boathouse, courteous staff, good food.

Firstly, this place looked amazing. It is the one hotel room I remember the most vividly from my travels- unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. The staff are wonderful, and very accommodating. we asked about boat trips and were very reasonably priced compared to others along the backwaters. It seems it is very difficult to keep a bamboo room clean... More

This is a brilliant homestay. We stayed one night then headed off on their boat trip over night. While everyone at the pier was trying to rip us off, this family offered fair and honest prices and we had a fantastic time. While the boat itself isn't the most stunning on the water, we discovered its not about what the... More

We arrived at the homestay late in the evening. But the reception was prompt & we were straight away shown our room. Tourists do frequent this place, as the auto-drivers are well aware of this location. We got all possible help & information from the owners. Would recommend this for people who want to stay for 1 - 2 days.... More

A historic building centrally located in downtown Alleppey. It's easy to hop on a Tuk Tuk and be at the beach for a nice sunset walk or shopping. However, in our experience, management is a bit cryptic. Although It was not busy during our stay, somehow we felt rushed to make snap decisions with inconsistent information. We asked to have...

We booked 2 nights with aircon beginning of March. We did put up a mosquito net, so had no problems sleeping. Bed was comfertable. The owners were helpful, and very pleasant. The email communication was excellent. The balcony upstairs was a nice place to sit and read. There was Mosquitos in the evenings, but this is to be expected in... More

We stayed one night and it was our worst night in India. The house is in a crowded ally by the canal, a severely mosquito infested area. The Bamboo room was hot, and did not have any way to let air circulate in, without opening the screen-less windows to also let the bugs in. The bugs could all get in... More
