Anyone used Brightwater Houseboats (not Brightwater Cruises)

Has anyone used Brightwater Houseboats?

http://www.thehouseboatkerala.com/index.html

Cannot find any reviews for them. They look height of luxury for not a high tariff. Are they too good to be true for the price?

We don't travel until January 2014 but we decided not to use Brightwater as we could not find any reviews recommending them. Their website gallery is very impressive but our instincts told us they seemed too good to be true.

,

Audley Travel nor Trans Indus use them and, as both are highly respected travel companies in the UK, we decided to use their recommendations. We are booked with Lakes and Lagoons via Trans Indus in a 1 bed premium houseboat for two nights so will review and post on TA. Thanks for your reply.

Yes, We have used but as you said Too Good is not the True. So Worst experience ever.

They are lying and waste of money you will not get your value of your money you spend.

For what it's worth I would highly recommend the company Lakes and Lagoons. We had a premium 1 bed boat which included an air con dining room. The boat was clean, food was good and service faultless. Only regret was we didn't stay longer.

Awesome experience at Brightwater houseboat but beware of the mosquitoes at night on the open deck,carry odomos cream,the boat provides you with mosquito coil.

. Food was ttruly traditional,fish was fabulous,river fish currymean,prawns ,crabs can be purchased in the evening.Rooms are clean,bathrooms are clean,western style,mineral water is provided by them.All meals including tea(with snacks),breath taking locations,friendly crew.

Overall a fabulous and awesome experience.Stayed here on 10th Jan 2015 for 1 day and 1night,premium 2 bedroom houseboat,tariff 13000 ₹,

Worth a try

Do not fall by seeing the eye catching photos. The Houseboat never looks exactly as you see in photos. Most of the Houseboats shown in gallery are not directly operating by them, you can see the same houseboats in other websites too..... they are outsourcing houseboat from other and of course they too own houseboat.

The common fault of people are, they trust by seeing the beautiful photos and make a big expatiation. That brings the disappointment.
