We were here at one of the busiest times for this lovely little place. The dragon boat racing was happening and everyone was very excited. I loved the vibe here. We were three ladies and were made to feel super safe here in our lovely, clean, decorated, little room overlooking the rice paddy. The one night the lights were not... More

The staff was friendly, and the value for money was ok. Yet at the middle of the night we had heavy rain that caused electricity blackout in the room, and water stopped running. So in the morning we couldn't use the toilets etc. We searched the staff for help but couldn't find them (8 a.m.). We left the money on... More

I arrived in Alleppey off the ferry, older solo female and was met by this "cheeky chappie" with a room spare... "I need no guide" I told him... It turned out I did as I would have never found this great budget cottage in the villages miles from any roads. My backpack was placed on Nandu's scooter & off we... More

It was only our third night in India and we arrived here. Nandu had double booked our room to someone else and showed us a room that was quite obviously his room! It was dirty and the shower room didnt have a lock on it even though it was shared by him too! He tried to make out that this... More

Frankly, the location was perfect. At the rear of the homestay are rice paddys, and at the front is one of the canals. If you like birds, it's a birdiers heaven. The water bus to Allepey runs straight past the front door! Food was good, and the little chalet my wife and I stayed in was basic, but just fine.... More

This place is fine if you are ok with creep crawlies as its right on the lakeside and quite open so they are everywhere! Nandu was a helpful host and organised a great canoe trip for us. Nice back garden area and nice peaceful. This place would be a lot better with a mosquito net in each room and ideally... More

The guesthouse is the best place to feel the backwaters as you can stay directly at the water. This is perfect if you like thinks quiet and need a place to chill out of town. Don't expect shops or restaurants there. The water taxi is the best connection to alleppey if you need to go there. The staff is very... More

Lake and Paddy's is sandwiched between the paddy fields on one side and a major canal with regular ferries into the centre for 5-10 rupees. The views are fantastic, especially for the two more expensive rooms looking West (I paid 900 rupees). It was generally a good stay and Ajmal was a friendly helpful guy. I'm not sure if you... More

We had the smaller, shared bathroom room and it was fine, especially for the price. The room was fairly clean, though our bed had termites, which left daily piles of leftovers on the floor beneath the bed. The pillows were pretty lame as was the starchy sheets. The shared bathroom was adequate, but there is no hot water and the... More
