True, Regal Homestay is a clean and comfortable place to stay during your stay in Alleppey, but that isn't to say other homestays wouldn't be just as nice for nearly half the price. I found the location to be a bit too far from the town centre. Just to get a bite to eat (already a feat in itself since Alleppey isn't exactly known for it's restaurants) requires a 15 min walk or a riksa drive (Rs40 to town centre/busstation, Rs100 to train station). Restaurant at Sisir Palace was near disgusting - avoid.
The location isn't justified even by being "peaceful" since Regal Mansion isn't even that quiet. The road in front of the house has heavy traffic throughout the day. Toilet paper, towel and soap are provided, but the bathroom looked like it had seen better days. There was something weird going on with the bed, either the bottom was uneven or the mattress worn out. On one side it was so high I almost fell off and on the other side there was a dip. Breakfast was included in the price which was convenient. Also owners were very friendly.
Alleppey is another nondescript Indian town. You definately want to see the Backwaters. If there's enough of you, seriously consider renting a houseboat! If you decide for a daytrip, don't pay over Rs800 for a 8h trip. That's money best spent in this town!

We are very much glad to know that our home is very COMFORTABLE& EXCELLENT IN CLEANLINESS &SERVICES.You got all the required facilities like towels,soap,toilet roll,hotwater,freewi-fi etc from Regal mansion.So we can say that ours is a Perfect homestay.Our homestay locates at the proper tourist place,(Boating point) and only 1&half km away from bus stand.We have front area with a beautiful loan and a spacious varanda.So noise from the road will not affect the rooms inside the home.We don't think our room tariff is high,as we provide air-conditioned deluxe room ,without power failure.free wi-fi,hotwater etc.You will get rooms in other homestays with low rate,but may not get the homely services
