The place was easy to find---just tell the driver it is near the lighthouse. Staff were welcoming. The bed was comfortable, wifi was a bit spotty but overall, probably ok. Breakfast upstairs on the terrace was lovely and the omelette and black coffee were especially appreciated. The beach is about five minutes away---easy walking. A couple of good restaurants nearby.... More

a nice place to be, good location near the beach, a bit far from restaurants but you can get food from local stores; very helpful staff, nice and available; too bad the rooms don't have a view but some of them will soon!

We stayed here for 1 night, the room was clean & spacious, the wifi worked well downstairs, the location was very good close to the beach, but the best part was the helpful friendly staff. We had a train to catch at 7am & they don't usually start serving breakfast until 7.30am, but they prepared toast, chai, bananas, pineapple &... More

We rocked up late last night without a booking and the owner showed us the rooms. All were simple and clean although smelt musty, and bedsheets were, probably from lack of use. We were the only ones staying there, probably due to it being low season. The room we stayed in had a clean bathroom with a very good shower!... More

It is a very nice place where the landlord will do all what he can for you. He can organise a very nice trip on the backwaters. He cooks very well Kerala specialties. Just an advice, take a room in the small house or a room in the big house who is on the street side.

We came over to Allepy for the first time with our family of 13. This was collectively a great experience for the price. The staff were very friendly, helpful and cooked great meals. There were a few times where we had issues with the air conditioners but the staff were quick to rectify the problem. Thank you Mr. Shameer for... More

A few events made me not recommend this place for female travelers. The staff and cleaners were very helpful and friendly- bindu and rashid, but management was unprofessional at times.. He entered my room without knocking at 12:30am at night to check if I wanted to eat something. This was very rude and inappropriate.I felt unsafe staying there. I also... More
