Very good hotel with good services

Posted 4 Jan, 2017

The location of the hotel was convenient and easy in travelling. The appearance of the hotel was good. The services given by the staff at this hotel were good and friendly in behaviour. The room allotted to me was very good with required amenities in good condition. The food at this hotel was not so good in taste and quality. There was no interruption during checking in and checking out process. The hotel was worth for the money.

Awesome Experience

Posted 1 Feb, 2016

It has been one of the awesome experience which will stay in our memory for long time. I travelled with my entire family during December 2015; so had the entire three bed room houseboat booked having premium services. We opted for premium boat so didn't had any issue whatsoever like mosquitoes etc ( so many thing was written earlier about mosquito problem in other forum by travellers). The house boat was clean ( better than many four star hotel room), bed was clean ; toilet was clean. Check in was done in a flash ( as all payments made in advance and we almost sailed immediately; boat stopped for lunch, shopping for 10 min ( we picked up few kg of expensive crab, prawn etc but it's worth it. Followed by lunch ( 1 HR and then stopped fully by 5:30 pm for night out near a village. It was nice watching star and village walk in the evening followed by morning walk. Morning they start at 7 and we checked out by 8:30am. In house boat food was nice, taste and adequate ( even if you don't buy from outside). You can watch movies via usb / LCD TV but you won't have time for sure to watch full movie. This is highly recommended than booking a hotel, and must visit location of travelling in Kerala.

Luxurious cruise at Alleppy

Posted 6 Jan, 2016

It was really a heavenly experience to stay at houseboat. All the staff were very cordial with us and the dish they prepared for our lunch or dinner were too delicious. In a word our whole experience was too pleasant to be remembered for ever.

Nice experience with good houseboats

Posted 5 Jan, 2016

This is a good houseboat with 2 bedrooms. It was clean and relatively new. The dining area is clean and spacious enough for 6 people. The staff are friendly and can speak Malayalam/Tamil. The cruise time was from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm with a lunch break of 1 hr. Next day morning another 1 hour cruise back during the breakfast. Was good. Mostly vegetarian with Fish Fry for lunch and Chicken curry for dinner. For breakfast, we were served Idli with chutney. The veg curries were a little spicy. Bathrooms were clean. Don't expect hot water for shower. The journey was safe. There was a TV with USB. Take some movies with you if you would like to watch any movies.

Awesome experience, food was good

Posted 2 Nov, 2015

LakeLands Houseboat, experience is awesome luxurious. House boat was beautifully decked up, with almost all the facilities a home would have. Food was good according to our choice. While sailing through network of lagoons, lakes & canals, feels so refreshing and relaxing. Excellent trip, one must visit. We genuinely loved it and recommend strongly.

Excellent facilities and room services

Posted 27 Sep, 2015

All the facilities offered by this place were awesome including location, accommodation, room services, food and leisure activities like sailing a boat in backwater, fishing, stay in backwater for night and so on. This place offered me a unique experience of staying in house boat. Also I enjoyed food and candle light dinner over there.

Good house boats with well-equipped rooms

Posted 8 Aug, 2015

It is a House Boat service provider and very good House Boats were there. We preformed them that we need pure veg food without onion and garlic, so that was arranged too Room was equipped with toilet and water supply (do not drink or clean you mouth with that water, it may be from that canal which look very dirty). Room had air conditioner too, but they activated it only in night 9 PM to morning 6 AM as it works on battery power and it was sufficient too. You can discuss with them while booking and can increase the time of AC usage as per your needs. Bed was good but, bed sheets were very small and came out while sleeping casing uneasiness. On special request, they decorated the bed room with flowers. Decoration was with fresh flowers with very less flowers, nice and elegant. But my expectation was of a little more. ;). Nice boat deck with sofa set, cushions and all. TV with CD player, if you can bring CD there then you can watch some movies or listen to songs They took us on a ride from 12 PM to 5:30 PM and then they parked that boat next to a local market where that boat stayed till morning Crew inside boat was very good. Only disappointing thing is the crew expect you to pay some money at the end of your stay as gift and may force you or demand good amount of money like as if it is their right. May be the hotel is not paying enough to them or may be they are a bit greedy, I am not sure. At that time crew used some bad words too in conversation while asking for money that ruined the whole experience in the end Whole experience was very good except the last incident of crew demanding some good amount of money as TIP.

You will have a good ride experience

Posted 27 Jul, 2015

You will have nice ride experience. You will love it for the first time. Lot of mosquitoes will be there. Food is not at all good. I won't suggest for a family, if they want to stay on the boat. It is good to stay in hotel near the banks of the river. You will a nice experience with family. It is good to plan with Munnar and Thekkady trip.

Excellent location with amazing room amenities

Posted 25 Sep, 2014

Conveniently located with good hospitality. They provided Kerala food varieties, the quality and taste of the food was very delicious and filling. There were no activities. This place is a very good place for tourist, especially boating, it was amazing. I visited this place with family for relaxation in August 2014 and my native place is Chennai. Excellent location with greenery and it is located at about 2 km distance from the Alleppey railway station and near to the city. Appearance, exterior and interior was very good. No issues at the time of check-in and check-out. I took a super deluxe boat, so the room's interior and accessories are very impressive and beautiful, it was spacious, neat and well maintained, has LED TV, room heater, AC and geyser facility in the room and including washing powder. Front office as well as service of staff members was up to the mark, they were very polite, caring and attentive.

Not very good, can avoid; staff not professional

Posted 8 Feb, 2015

First, about houseboats - It's not worth AT All if you can skip night stay. Best is 2-3 hour rental in small boats (Shikara) to move into small canals. It's more relevant for honeymoon couples who want to stay on water for longer duration otherwise it's more kind of over hyped stuff About Lakeland cruises - staff is simple but not professional at all. They are local residents of the villages mostly (which is not the problem) but if you are paying something like 10k+ in India for 1 night stay you would definitely expect luxurious and pampered stay for sure. And that is not the case at all. My personal experience was the feedback the staff took at the end of our stay and we gave AVERAGE rating for food, just after Reading this review their cook and driver commented on us that we ate SO MUCH food and still we are giving them average. I accept it's a partial mistake from our side because given the options of average, good and excellent, we should have given them good. But we took the English meaning of it and gave them average which was the actual case. The bad point was their options were not showing BAD value, so in essence, they don't think someone can rate them bad Apart from this, the cruise was not that luxurious and clean. We booked full houseboat but didn't realize during booking that they are booking one room essentially an the houseboat is having 2 rooms, second of which you are not ALLOWED to use at all. We just wanted to use it for our dinner when there were tons of mosquitoes outside. They stop the houseboat at around 5 pm till 8 am at one shore and the houseboat is static in this period Overall, I would suggest don't book it for the full day. It's definitely over hyped but if you do research and book some more luxurious ones.

Nice amenities and good staff

Posted 29 Sep, 2014

Houseboat was good also staff are very good and well behaved. We cannot compare the services and amenities available in house boat with hotels as here all thing are limited. The backwaters are a calm place and coconut palms on both side and widespread calm water. Food was average and snacks is good. We enjoyed houseboat very much.
