I stayed there for a week in February 2014 with my family.
It was nice stay , nice staffs and they are really helpful people.
They didn't serve us food because their chef was not available those days .
Very nice rooftop to meet people. Not very good for family if they want luxury, like AC room etc.
But definitely good for solo or couple.

Stayed here for one night. Good value for your money. There's free wifi, a big rooftop and a very friendly staff. Too bad there where no mosquito nets and a lot of mosquitos in the room. Since there where a couple of air holes in the wall there was no point in trying to squash them, new ones just flew in to the room.

I recommend to stay here for its value. The rooms are big and clean and pretty cheap. Cold shower only. Wifi is decent, but only works in the lobby which doesn't have much sitting space. It's tucked away from the noise and touts of the main strip which are nice. The rooftop is awesome and you can meet lots of people up top. Negotiate hard for room prices. Took the day backwaters tour through the hotel and it was really nice.

I only stayed here one night as I was staying at another hostel in Allepey but i met some people whilst travelling that were staying here. They invited me to an evening of food, drink and great music on the Roof Top! It was an excellent night. The owners are really down to earth and friendly, they offered food and drink and showed me around Allepey. If you are going to Kerala i strongly suggest you stay here.
The rates are really good and the staff can't do enough for you.
Aside from the amazing views and beautiful backwaters it was great to go somewhere where you could meet people.
Its a really relaxed and slightly 'Hippy' atmosphere, there are hammocks and incredible wall art dotted around from several guests. 5 Star!

It's more a backpacker's place, but we (couple 54 years) felt welcome here. The room we had was simple, basic and reasonable clean. We had a smelly sewer in the bathroom, but it was not dirty. The staff is friendly and there is a roof-top, quiet messy, but full of atmosphere. The location is great: quiet area, no traffic, near the bus-stand and on walking distance to the boat jetty and the town centre. Good bike parking at night.

Room Tip: Some rooms have small double-beds, so if you need space, ask for a room with larger beds. (in fact 2...

We had a great stay at lemon dew they couldn't have done anymore for us. We also organised out backwater trip through them on a 2 tier boat for cheaper than what was quoted at the jetty. But the best bit about this hotel is Ashkar he couldn't have helped us more and spent all night talking to us about India, give him a pay rise!!

Lemon Dew was recommended to us by a friend of the operator who did not lead us astray!!!
The rooms are simple, clean and fairly priced. The communal rooftop area is a peaceful spot to chill in the middle of the day and a friendly meeting area in the evening. The music on the rooftop was also great!

Room Tip: first floor is cheaper, but noisier
