It was a holiday trip along with my family. I went to Alappuzha (Alleppey) in the month of November 2016. I booked a room at this boathouse directly. The location was just okay. It was normal and easily accessible. The appearance was normal and ordinary. The boat was just okay. The booking process was simple. The response was on time. They completed the booking process on time. The overall service was good and just average. Rooms were not that much great. The amenities were normal and it was clean. The expected amenities were not there. The room service was just okay. No complimentary breakfast. Vegetarian food items were tasty and delicious. No other amenities. It was a normal experience.
In case you plan to stay in a houseboat while visiting the backwaters in Kerala, be sure to not book with the ATDC houseboats. Severely compromised service, dirty rooms/toilets, and insufficient power supply are a few things you will experience when staying in their houseboats. Me and my husband took our maiden trip to Kerala and staying a houseboat was one of the highlights we were waiting to experience. Unfortunately, it was at the least exciting when we saw the state of these houseboats for tourists. Dirty and shabby, limited power supply, and short backwater ride (ending at 17. 00 in the evening) was not what we bargained for !! The only highlight of the houseboat stay was the service of the two staff on board who took care of the food and snacks. My advice to the houseboat company would to be to pay serious attention to the maintenance of cleanliness in their facilities. At the end of the day, people pay for vacations to relax. The least they could do is offer some respectable service!
