What a find this homestay is! We have just completed 3 weeks in India and stayed in homestays everywhere we went. Venice Castle was the best value for money homestay that we stayed in.
As mentioned by others, this homestay is in the centre of Alleppey but amazingly quiet from the bustling streets. Cannot speak highly enough about the staff, particularly Matthew and Aldos. Aldos was extremely helpful in assisting us organise a houseboat as well as planning other things for us to do. In other homestays we had assistance for such planning but they charged us extra for it - No extra charge here.
Rooms are clean, spacious and air con works well. Hot water sometimes cut in and out in shower but that was typical in all places we stayed. Only slight annoyance is the 5am chanting from the town mosque each morning. It is VERY loud! So loud that I doubt there's a single place in Alleppey that wouldn't hear it.
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Went to some great restaurants in Alleppey. Must try Thaff - REALLY yummy food and super cheap!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Venice castle is the home stay of your dreams It is ideally located in the very heart of the town. Yet, Venice castle is cut off from the din and bustle of the town by wooded surroundings that lends an ambiance of the country side. The home stay is set in large of lush green plants, landscaped premises and a well mowed lawn with garden lights.Peace and alms prevails over the place which is broken only with the chiming of soft bells from the nearby temple, the chirruping of birds or the playful whistling of the squirrels in the tree. ... more less
