Really nice guest house with beautiful rooftop. Laundry service. Ashkar took good care of us, he booked a canoe trip on the backwaters that was really good. Room was ok we paid 600 RS for a basic double room at the second floor with bathroom. Warning, friendly atmosphere means sometimes noisy evenings party :)!

We stayed here a few nights and the room was okay. Not completely clean though. We had a fan but it was still too hot, and there where electrical issues each evening/night. The boys are very helpful. For the price it was okay and close to the busstand. We also took on a canoe day trip booked from this place... More

We went to lemon dew after hopping off the public ferry from Kolam and asking the first foreigner we saw for a recommendation. She said Lemon Dew, which was where she was staying, explaining that it had a nice rooftop kitchen where we could chill and cook our own food. The kitchen was fine, however the only room they had...

Hey Friend, I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in lemon dew. You could have mentioned that room was not clean while you checked in itself.

This is truly my home away from home. I have stayed in this place several times over the past three years and I love it. The rooms are simple and clean. The rooftop provides a great hang out and possibility to meet new people. The host, Sanil and his staff always make me feel welcome!

Got recommended to Lemon Dew and it was the best recommendation not only for the guesthouse but the day trip in the backwaters. We wanted to do a house boat but alot of people don't really recommend them as you don't get the full experience of the backwaters. With Sanil we booked a backwaters cannoe in Alleppey. It was phenomenal,... More

Ashka (staff member) is one of the nicest people I came across in India. The rooms are fantastic value for money with comfortable beds and mosquito nets. Seems to attract a good and friendly crowd and... More

When I saw the place for the first time he left a good impression. But once entering the room i found a very not clean room. The bathroom was very smelly. The room full of mosquitoes and there are holes in the wall allow the entry of more mosquitoes. On the floor and the bed has little worms. Disgusting place... More

You get what you pay for in life and Lemon Dew is a prime example. It's a 'backpackers' place for people travelling and wishing to meet others doing the same. The communal roof area is awesome for chilling and chatting to others. We learnt so much that helped us in our travelling of India. Highly recommend this place, decent rooms... More
