We chose this place based on reviews but our room was dirty and we shared with 2 cockroaches. We had been led to believe it was B&B but we were charged for breakfast. We wanted to stay a few nights but checked out after 1 and found somewhere much better. Nice hosts though.

Such a tranquil and beautiful place! Friendly owners who offer a tour through the backwaters in a small canoe, which is probably even more fun than a touristic house boat. Clean accommodation, absolutely enjoyed my stay!

Let make it clear that I and my wife stayed in this property in 2009 and not in 2014. We called them up and they confirmed our booking. Once we reached alleppey, we were surprised to see a boy waiting for us in the bus stop to take us to the property. The rooms were basic however comfortable. It's run... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Matthew organised a village tour for us with Anthony which made for a a beautiful day exploring the 'real', narrow backwaters in a small canoe (something you won't experience staying on a house boat). The rooms are basic but spacious and set in a pretty garden. It's a little out of town, but worth... More

We, two couples with our one child each total 6 people planned to visit Aleppey and after looking at a lot of home stays, decided to enquire and book at Palmy Lake Resort. When we called them at +91 477 2235938, the reply we got was rooms could not be provided to us as we are Indians and that they... More

A little way out of town and a little run down. This resort is perfectly comfortable but not very inspiring. We only stayed the one night and did not eat here so cannot comment.Overall I would happily stay here again but for the money you could possibly find better.

Overall,this was one of the most enjoyable places we stayed at during our five week tour in Southern India. Our room was airy and clean, with space to sit outside and observe the wildlife - including fireflies! Repellent dealt with the mosquitoes. Our hostess was charming and helpful and cooked up excellent breakfasts. Wifi was available in the main house.... More

Mathew and Mercy invited us into their fine old Kerala home. Set next to the canal and with easy access to the back waters. Rooms are simple and clean. Mathew keeps all sort of birds in many aviaries. Breakfasts are beautifully cooked by Mercy. Really felt welcome here in this quiet retreat.

We found a very clean and neat cottage, where we stayed for three nights. Even after the monsoon season and near a lake we had no problem with mosquitos as we our hosts were taking care of this also. Everyone is really helpful and friendly, they can advise and arrange activities for you anytime. The place was slightly more expensive... More

A more expensive nights stay than many in our travels around south India, the 500-900r on the website was misleading, particularly when charged 1250r. Our particular room had a number of visitors- geckos, which I am not phased by, but there were hundreds of ants in the bathroom, and centipedes, following a huge thunderstorm. The roof also leaked, and there... More
