We spent a one night stopover in Alleppey at the Ashtamudi Homestay in February 2011. The staff there were most helpful and accommodating that we encountered in the whole of India. They went out of their way to help us made our brief stay in Alleppey a real highlight of our travels.

My wife & I stopped here around the middle of March for 3 nights. I can only re-iterate what the other positive reviews have said. ... all good. We ate out in 3 places while in Alleppey, Kream Korner, Mushroom & Ashtamudi, where the food was the best by far.

One can really feel at home here. The place has it's soul! Rooms are clean and cool. Nets around the bed ensure you won't be fightig with Kerala's mosqitos all night long. However biggest credit goes to attitude of the owners: they are helping in all kind of trip arrangements and keeping their promises (example: cab driver didn't arrive on... More

I booked five nights at Ashtamudi Homestay largely based on its rating as #1 accommodation in Alleppey, and I wasn't disappointment one bit. On the contrary, I was absolutely touched by how much the owners, Uma and Subhash, cared for myself and the other guests. I felt like I was a special vsitor in their home rather than just another...

The highlight of Ashtamudi Homestay is the care and attention from Uma and Subhash to ensure that you are comfortable and happy. The room I had was clean and functional, with a very good mosquito net that really did keep the insects out. The upstairs sitting / eating area was comfy and breezy. The breakfast was wonderful Indian food. But... More
