I stayed one night at Gowri on a stopover from Kollam on my way to Kochi. I had actually planned to spend two nights in Alleppey, but when I saw the condition of my room, I couldn't deal.
One of the young men met me at the boats, which was nice as my boat came in past dark. But the first room they gave me smelled of dirty socks and cigarettes. The floor and walls were visibly dirty, and the curtains were smeared in black. I asked for another room and, while it smelled slightly fresher and the curtains were cleaner, the level of cleanliness wasn't that stellar and none of the plug ins worked. Their wifi is very slow and not available in the rooms. They weren't serving meals because their cook was gone, but I wouldn't have felt comfortable eating there anyway.
The staff is friendly but the rooms need improvement. I'd go elsewhere next time.
