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.

From the moment you enter the guesthouse, they great you with the warmest and kindest smile. You instantly feel like you are being welcomed by true friends. Shameer made sure we had... More

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

This is not a bad place to stay, but it depends what you are looking for and your past experiences at hotels. When we arrived the guy who met us and showed us to our room had obviously had a few drinks (not really great first impression, especially as later on he said he was the driver for the place!)....

The most impressive part of South Canal Holidays is its location, next to one of the quaint canals of Alleppey. Also, the owners are considerate about the taxi-drivers and have a place for them to stay (and have food at reasonable price), which is something that we did not experience in few other places like Fort Kochi or Kumily. However,... More
