We came over to Allepy for the first time with our family of 13. This was collectively a great experience for the price. The staff were very friendly, helpful and cooked great meals. There were a few times where we had issues with the air conditioners but the staff were quick to rectify the problem. Thank you Mr. Shameer for...

A few events made me not recommend this place for female travelers. The staff and cleaners were very helpful and friendly- bindu and rashid, but management was unprofessional at times.. He entered my room without knocking at 12:30am at night to check if I wanted to eat something. This was very rude and inappropriate.I felt unsafe staying there. I also...

This is not a bad place to stay, but it depends what you are looking for and your past experiences at hotels. When we arrived the guy who met us and showed us to our room had obviously had a few drinks (not really great first impression, especially as later on he said he was the driver for the place!)....

The most impressive part of South Canal Holidays is its location, next to one of the quaint canals of Alleppey. Also, the owners are considerate about the taxi-drivers and have a place for them to stay (and have food at reasonable price), which is something that we did not experience in few other places like Fort Kochi or Kumily. However,...

We just spent three weeks in India and have waited to do any reviews until we'd done the whole trip, so we were used to Indian standards etc and could review all the places we stayed fairly. We stayed for one night in Alleppey and found South canal holidays via trip advisor. We got a really good pick up from...

Staying at South Canal was an amazing experience. In all my travel experience I have never before seen a guest house which offers that much of kindness and fun. You can get bikes for free, you have free Wifi, you can print out tickets etc. The food is amazing. The rooms are beautiful and value for little money. But the...

We came across this beautiful hotel by chance when we were staying in the area, and found very friendly, who were relaxed yet professional. The rooms and bathrooms were very well decorated, with an amazing power shower and hot water. We also enjoyed learning how to play the Indian game Carrom and enjoyed the home cooked food. Rashid, Shameer and...
