Reviewed February 18, 2011

We stayed here in Jan. Only meant to stay for a few days but ended up travelling and coming back. Uma and Subhash are great hosts and very welcoming. From the minute we arrived they had smiles on their faces and made us feel at home. They will go out of their way to make your stay as nice as possible and will arrange any trips you want to do. We had a great time with them. The whole place has a great vibe and is good value for money.

The very best thing about Ashtamudi is the people who run it. They've managed to create a very laid back place where you really do feel at home. They are warm, friendly and very helpful. The food is excellent and the bed was very comfortable. If I had a criticism it would be that the room wasn't very big but that is because of the way the house was built and there's nothing they could do about that. But I would recommend Ashtamudi without hesitation.

I really recommend this place. The servis is very good, and the food is excellent, really....the home made, fresh dinner on the balcony with the bamboo rooms around makes u feel that u are in the nice exotic place.
I really had a great time, feel as at home, they really help u about anything u need, they organise backwaters trips, ajurvedic massage in the ajurvedic center....it was wonderfull, I will surly come back :). Tank u very much all off u for making me feel at home....I was tought how to cook Indian dishes, I am cocking it almost every day......in one way I am always in your kitchen with u :))). Tank u again.

the hosts could not have been friendlier and more accommodating. the arranged everything we needed all the while with smiles. even when we wanted to eat some place other than their guesthouse, the gladly recommended an amazing alternative.

the rooms were much more cozy and inviting than most at that price range. the guest house was such and oasis i almost felt guilty for not wanting to leave.

Stayed for three nights with four other friends.
We all loved our rooms, the atmosphere, and the amazing balcony space upstairs.
Not to mention the price! Ah, and cold beers on the menu! Rare in Kerala...

Superb warm service, with great local knowledge too! They even let me store my bag over night while we went on a backwater cruise, and borrow their shower before boarding my night train the next evening.

Highly recommended!

Really good value. We felt safe and secure. Lovely people. The walls are light so bring your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper!

I had chosen Ashtamudi based on TripAdvisor rating. Although we did not get the room we had booked, but we were pleasantly surprised on seeing the bamboo room. It was neat and cozy. Hosts are very nice people. Overall would recommend the stay. Just one thing though, they were a bit displeased when we chose not to take their boat because we wanted a better quality boat.
