A floating heaven

6.6/7

Amazing experience. The amount of peace we felt during our visit was amazing. The place has a magic about itself. But rivers capes weaves it's own magic along the backwaters. Sunsets are amazing. Seafood to die for. A canal ride down the village by the Backwaters. It is an extremely soothing experience. Must visit place. Must stay in house boat.

Blissfull stay on Houseboat

5.5/7

First I would like to thank River Escapes for making our trip memorable They organized everything and maintains time lines. It was really a good experience and we had during our stay on house boat Likes:. 1) Food . 2) Cleanliness . 3) Good hospitality . 4) Following the schedule on time Area of improvement:. 1) The room in house boat could have been much more spacious which can give some space for sitting . 2) The door locks or the window locks were damaged/not properly fitted which gives us a concern on security

Overall, a very good experience

5.6/7

The location of the hotel was excellent. The appearance of the hotel was maintained. The room provided to me was good, neat and clean. But window curtains were very quite transparent; hence, sunlight was coming inside the room. I requested the management, but they change it. Even the bed sheets were not up to the mark. The staff services were good. I had not faced any problem during check-in and check out procedure. The overall service at the hotel was very good. The food provided by the hotel was very good. Some activities were provided by the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel to others.

Good stay with comfortable room and quality food

5.3/7

I had a very nice experience at this houseboat and there was no problem faced during my stay with family. The hotel is convenient to locate and surrounding was filled with greenery. The appearance of the hotel is normal but interiors were good. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and good in services. I had booked this houseboat in a package so, and there was no delay in check-in or check-out. The room allotted to us was maintained cleanly with all the required amenities in good condition. The food provided in the hotel was good in quality and taste. There were no activities or games as such available at this hotel. Overall, the houseboat is good to stay and money spent was worth it.

Cooperative staff and amazing experience

6.1/7

The boat stay was an amazing experience as it was a first time for me. The family enjoyed as well. My son was super excited to be on the boat and was amazed to see the surrounding beauty. The staff on the boat was very cooperative. We would surely like to visit again and recommend it to our family and friends.

Comfortable boat but services are to be improved

5.4/7

The house boat was maintained very neatly and the bedroom was very good, especially the bed was very good and comfortable. The toilets was also maintaining neat. Being a premium range boat I hope the services must also meet premium range - The services need to be improved, the welcome drink was not served until we asked them, food was not sufficient and an ordinary meal was provided (we prepare more items in our house regularly than what they provided), and taste was also not good. Tea was served in the evening for only one time and they rejected to serve one more time. The check-out time was 9. 00 am in the morning but they brought us to the harbour by 8. 20 am. The boat was not equipped with mosquito net. Suggestion for travellers is - Board the boat as early as possible, because for entire day, the boat may ride hardly 3hrs and try to take a boat with deck and talk with the boat people well in advance regarding what I've mentioned. I guarantee you that your trip will be memorable.

Bad experience but good in service

4.3/7

My overall experience in the hotel was not good. The food in the hotel was not good but the service was good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out and there were no activities in the hotel as well. The room was good except TV and all other amenities were working in good condition, but there were many mosquitoes. They did not arrange any sightseeing trip. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. The location of hotel was easy to travel, as our driver was aware about the root. I visited the hotel for honeymoon purpose in the month of June. The staff service in the hotel was good and helpful.
