We stayed here for one night in an AC room. This place is good value for money for those who don't want to splurge on resort stay or want to spend multiple nights at Allepey.The positives about this place are -
1. Clean rooms
2. Polite and helpful host - Eldos. He was really cooperative and allowed us to check in early in the morning at 8AM (the time our train reached Allepey). He also arranged an extra complimentary breakfast for us when asked :)
3. Tasty Kerala cuisine breakfast
4. The view of the in-house plantation from the balcony is soothing
The few letdowns about this place were -
1. There were frequent power cuts when we visited and when available, their was very low voltage most of the time due to which ACs couldn't work. When asked, Eldos confirmed its a seasonal power cut happening during monsoons.
2. Geyser in the bathroom wasn't working
The place is walking distance from the Punnamada Finishing Point and Punnamada Boat Jetty, making it convenient to catch the houseboat. However, it is a few kilometers away from the beaches and main town. Overall, a comfortable stay, would recommend it to people !!! :)
