Good service and nice staff

5.0/7
Posted 2 Jun, 2014

Overall, my experience in this homestay was good. Wayanad as a destination is good. Location of the hotel was below average because it was not near to the prime location. External and internal appearance of the hotel was good. Booking was done through online. It was easy to get the room. Booking and front office service was very good. Service and the behaviour of the staff were very good. Room was very good. Complimentary breakfast was provided by them. Food and drink was very good. Activity part was good. I visited there with my friend in April.

Budget Stay

5.1/7
Posted 28 Jun, 2017

I visited Wayanad in the month of November 2016 and I went along with my family. The destination was scenic and the weather was too good. The location of the hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel was not impressive it was a budget hotel. The front office staff were well behaved and they did check in and check out on time. The room was nice and kept clean and neat. The amenities were not there. The food was not tasty and it was cold. Hygienic food was not provided to us. The service was not up to the mark. We didn't find any other activities and amenities in this hotel. I would like to suggest this hotel provide hygienic food inside the hotel.

For a holiday trip, I went to Wayanad with my family. The place was small, and it was like a private place. So we felt comfortable in this place. The surrounding of the Hotel was convenient to reach. The outer look of the Hotel was excellent. Very clean and shiny Hotel. The reception of the Hotel was excellent. They talk with us very politely. The room of the Hotel was clean and spacious. The bathroom was comfortable to us. They cleaned time to time. The room service was very active. The food service was fantastic.

Best homestay with tasty food, cosy room

4.9/7
Posted 2 Dec, 2014

One of the best home stays that we have been to so far! Melvin is a great host. I called him just before leaving to Wayanad as ours was a sudden plan. He was more than obliging and arranged a nice cosy room for us in his home. He kept checking on us even when we were travelling and guided us to his home. He advised us very patiently on what we could do around there. We did the trek to Chembra and it was awesome! And Melvin's mom is a great cook! The puttu and kadala curry were the best! Not to forget the tasty appams that we gobbled up. Melvin became a buddy in those two days. He took us around in his estate jeep to his upcoming resort which is tucked away in his estate. Looking forward to visit his resort after it's completion. Thank you Melvin! We loved Wayanad. More so because of you! :)

A home away from your home

7.0/7
Posted 16 Jun, 2013

Melvins Homestay is the best option you can choose and you will love it. This is the place you must stay in Meppadi (wayanad), a home away from your home. This place is kept very clean and I give 5 out of 5 for the cleanliness. I was very impressed with the owner of Melvins Homestay Mr. Melvin. He was so generous and kind. He helped us on how to plan things and what to see and what not to see. During our stay we had a very nice and authentic Kerala food served and prepared by the Melvin and his mummy, he stays in the ground floor of the home and will help you anytime. Our great experience with Wayand was fulfilled by staying at Meppadi which is the base for all the tourist attractions in Wayand.

7.0/7
Posted 7 Dec, 2012

Truly a lovely experience away from Home !! . It was our first experience at Wayanad and I must comment that we had a Great experience We visited the Melvins Homestay during the 2nd Week of October for a 4 day stay and we were given a warm welcome. I was with my wife and a daughter of 2 years old and we were given the liberty to use their kitchen to prepare food for my daughter which I would not have otherwise got if I had opted for a stay in the hotel. I was thoroughly satisfied with the hospitality that was extended to us by Melvin and his family . Also, he was very helpful in suggesting an itinerary that best suited our needs. Overall, we would describe our stay there as "very satisfying" and if there is a next time I would not hesitate to opt for Melvins home stay which in my opinion is most suitable for a stay along with the family Thanks once again Melvin for the lovely experience that was extended to us Thanks and regards ,.

Nice large rooms, comfortable beds

5.9/7
Posted 8 Aug, 2013

Nice large rooms, comfortable beds, living room with TV, Wi-fi on request, help in planning itinerary, transport arrangements--all to make your stay comfortable. Lovely plantation, tea hills bang opposite the homestay, stream flowing in the plantation, where you can have a refreshing swim, a spot for bonfire in the middle of the plantation--very enchanting. Please negotiate and fix the price with your transport providers before you avail of their services. Dont forget to taste the pineapple feni, mango wine and the delicious Kerala food in the homestay.
