While Silverweed may offer international standard cleanliness, I am afraid the extras were also priced at International standards.
We were charged almost 1500 rupees [nearly 20 pounds] to wash 6 garments and a few socks and underwear.
Dinner similarly was expensive at 800 rupees for two, dinner at the nearby restaurant [dal roti] was just over 200 for two [and excellent food at that price]. Dinner at the more upmarket Oceanus [also a few minutes walk] was under 600 for two.
We were charged 1200 for a taxi from the airport, again we later realised that this was 400 Rs more than the standard rate.
Our room was not cleaned for the 4 days we were there, this may be common in homestays but it is not ideal in a dusty place like India.
If you are paying just to sleep here, it is very good value, the family are welcoming and hospitable and the outdoor area is full of beautiful orchids.
