We stayed at the Lake Palace Hotel, Alleppey in Dec 06, the hotel is set in some of the most beautiful grounds I have seen in South Indian overlooking the backwaters.
The hotel is relatively new (2 years) and looks absolutely spotless, the cottages which overlook the lake are beautiful and really peacful.
The rooms themselves were very nice and clean and had good amenities (including a safe).
The pool is wonderful - it actually floats on a top of a lake and looks amazing, the hotel also had a very new Ayurvedic spa which looks amazing. I had several treatments here which were very affordable and also very good - I would definitely recommend this aspect of the hotel.
The service at the hotel was of a low standard - requesting things and not getting them, also the level of understanding English seemed low. The service was particularly bad in the restaurant.
The food in the hotel is a mixture of South & North Indian and western dishes, I found the food rather disappointing and have to say that we had some of the most tasteless meals I have experienced in South India at this hotel. Unfortunatley because of the location of the hotel (you need to get a boat to the hotel from the main town - the hotel runs a ferry service) it is a bit of a trek to go and eat somewhere else. However we did do the trek into town and it was well worth it.
On the whole an excellent hotel, poor service occassionally and disappointing food - however I would reccomend the hotel for its great location, rooms and ayuredvic spa.
