Hotel was excellent

6.5/7
Posted 23 Dec, 2016

It was holiday trip with family in September and it was amazing. Rides were good, and stay was okay. Boating was nice at the destination. It was a house boat and location of it was very good but It can be improved and after so much complaining they gave location map or anything so that was the problem. So, I would say location of boat should be improved more. Best meant to reach hotel was by road. It had traditional appearance so it was nice. Front office was awesome, they were friendly and cooperative, and had smooth flow style of work. Service was awesome. Rooms were very nice, toilets, and everything was clean and nice. Food was very good it was very tasty, fish curry, and all the traditional food was excellent and complimentary breakfast was provided.

Provided limited food variety in the menu

4.6/7
Posted 3 Nov, 2014

Reception people were very good, polite, helpful and very cooperative. Very good location with good hospitality and it is located far away from the railway station and bus stand. They provided food with buffet, the quality and taste of the food was very good, but provided limited food with veg and non-veg. Hotel appearance, exterior and interior were very good. The room tariff was around Rs. 16000 per day and room was spacious, neat and well maintained with clean pillows, bedspreads and blankets and they provided basic amenities and there were beautiful views from the room. There were no activities and they did not provide a vehicle for sightseeing. They should provide food with satisfaction.

Stay away from this company

1.0/7
Posted 2 Sep, 2017

If I had an option, I would give zero stars. We have been to this shivaganga companies boathouse in the month of July with our family. Their services, their people attitude, their promises, there food, their facilities are too bad that you regret within few hours that you have made a wrong choice. Before booking they promise a lot saying they are there to serve you. Once you book and make a payment, their intention would be only to trouble you and make more money based on your needs and asks. You can see the worst hygiene in their service. I have been to Kerala multiple times and especially to the boathouse three times with different groups. But the last experience with my family is the most Pathetic one. We even had elders in the family and the staff members are not even respecting the elders and their Requests. I even registered a complaint in one of the forums If you want to have a happy holiday and the best houseboat ride. You better don't choose this company for your service.

Kumarkom is the fantastic place for holiday also Shiv Ganga house boat is a unique experienced for me. Shiv Ganga houseboat is a secure for new couple and is a romantic place for enjoying honeymoon. In house boat we got good quality food as well as well treat from care takers. Room service was excellent and well arrangement for dinner. In house boat environment was excellent. We enjoyed hole day and night on house boat.

Interior of the hotel was attractive

3.8/7
Posted 31 Dec, 2016

I visited the hotel in the month of November and it was a holiday trip with family members. Overall experience of the hotel was good. Destination of the hotel was very good especially Munnar and Tekkdi. Hotel was located far from the main city. Inside and outside appearance of the hotel was attractive especially the interiors. I had done booking through a travel agency. Staff members were not co-operative. Complimentary breakfast was provided but only South Indian foods were provided. Other activities like swimming pool, gym, WiFi facility and pick up drop facility were not available in the hotel. I would like to recommend the hotel management to improve the hotel services.

Very good stay arrangement and experience

6.1/7
Posted 4 Jun, 2016

Activities should be rated as 5 not 4 as mentioned above. Very nice experience. Have also referred my friends for the same. Also the activities were sufficient enough as we opted only for a 1 night stay. We were also allowed to take pics at driver seat as well, when the boat was still. Thanks a lot for everything. Good job guys. Keep it up!

We have visited this hotel in October and it was a holiday trip. The holiday was nice. Location of the hotel was excellent and it was pretty far from the city. Destination was very nice. The interior and exterior was nice. Front office was polite and it was booked by my friend and there was no delay in check in and check out. Food was excellent and variety in food was there. Room was good. WiFi was not there. Non vegetarian food awesome. Complimentary breakfast was provided. Activity was provided by them like movie and campfire. I would recommend it to my friends.

Very nice stay in the hotel

5.5/7
Posted 4 Jan, 2017

The overall experience at this hotel was very nice and my stay was comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located to travel and the surroundings both in interior and exterior were good. The staff was very helpful and quick to respond. The room allotted to me was spacious and well-maintained with all the essential amenities in proper working condition. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process. The hotel is worth for the money and I surely recommend this hotel to other travellers.
