We stay in house boat for 1 night. From boat lake view is amazing, service is OK. Check in time is 12 noon they giving boat ride until 5. 30 pm only after that they anchoring boat one side of lake. We are a north indian we request some north food, but they have no option only south indian food with coconut and spicy curry. We like south indian food but not that much spicy they provide during our stay. Overall lake view and overnight staying in house boat wonderful experience. I love Kerala.
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.
Pathetic experience we must say. Staff isn't polite, whatever you ask them they say with a big 'NO' especially the guy Prasanna. He in fact gives us suggestions on how to behave with them. We are totally unhappy with the service and will not recommend anyone to go and book Shivaganga Houseboat. They are a big cheat and will update you all their houseboat rules only after you have done the payment. After all its their and we don't have enough command to speak against them. AC went down at 1am in the night due to power failure. Please please don't book this houseboat, only good thing in this houseboat for which 1 star is given is because of food that is cooked as per our preferences and that too with a lot of high drama.
I had there been in November, It was a holiday trip. The location was beautiful. The hospitality was very good and ambience of House boat was good. The appearance was good. Management were quite co-operative, with respect to front office it was good. Online booking was done by my colleague. Service part was excellent and it was customer caring. Regarding rooms they were good. It didn't have WiFi facility. The food was very good and tasty.
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.
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.
