We left this place after one night. We booked the cheapest of rooms. The fan was terrible, may as well of just had it off. Room was basic as you'd expect. Set in a nice area, able to wander alongside the backwaters. Worst part was that I woke up in the morning smothered in bed bug bites as the sheet... More

We arrived in Aleppey at 7.30 in the morning and looked at 2 or 3 places to stay before asking to be taken to "Lake and Paddy" where our son and his girlfriend had stayed the previous year. It is a few kilometres outside of Aleppey town. It was quiet when we visited in April and stayed for 3 nights... More

Manager of Lake and Paddy who is also a cook is the funniest Indian we've met on this trip. Loads of personality! Guesthouse is in a cute and remote village, not in the center of the town so a rikshaw ride is from Rs 60 to 120, depends where you're going. Ferries are nice and cheap, Rs5 but quite rare.... More

The Hotel: As most people have said its out of town and on the canals but even with having to deal with a ferry ride into town at like 6rs it's an amazing spot and well worth it. The hotel is well done with well priced rooms (500 if you can talk it down). Everything you need is there, wifi,... More

A small resort of budget type. Location is great. It's located on the bank of canal/waterway and the back side of the hotel has large stretches of paddy fields. You will feel great to spend 2-3 nights away from the crowds. Location is great, but the rooms are not that great. Older rooms are not that clean. Foul smell coming... More

The location, right next to the backwaters and rice paddies, and price is really good and their house boat service very worth the money. The first day we stayed everything worked well but after we came back from the houseboat trip and checked in for another night the staff didn't really seem to care about making the stay as nice...

Lake and Paddy is one of (if not the only) budget options on the backwater themselves. The price is pretty good, particularly for Kerela and all rooms have fans, windows, mosquito nets and ensuites. There are newly built wooden rooms at the back that aren’t so secure and all rooms apart from the two inside have their own ground-floor balconies.... More

Reviewed this last December and won't repeat it all. They have cheaper rooms however for Rs.800 you can have 1 of 2 bungalows which are nice. They have built a new wood construction. I would be slightly concerned by bugs due to gaps. Be aware it is in lake/paddy and bugs are rife come evening. I was fine with bug... More

This guest house provided a relaxing stay in the backwaters of Alleppey. It is about fifteen minutes from the main town. The rates were affordable and the rooms clean and basic. The whole property is kept well. The owners were very helpful in assisting us with anything we needed.
