They stored our luggage for free and made all travel arrangements to us to have their vehicle, driver and visit a wonderful guesthouse in the mountains near Munnar. No extra charge.

Shameer and his team hosts his guests very nicely. After 2 nights in South Canal GH, we started our stay in India with Ajish, one of the 3 drivers :an excellent way to start discovering south India. We back in Alleppey, we stayed 11 nights and felt as at home : Rooms are clean and confortable, thanks to Bindu. Breakfeast are excellent and mix indian / western style : thanks to Shammeer who is also an excellent cook ! For this reason, we took diner at the GH several evenings.If you speak french, ask Shameer advices from Alain, the french co-owner, they will organize trips the way you want.If you need a taxi-cab, drivers are often available, but if you need to go 10 or 20 kms from Alleppey, Shameer will manage the trip with a tuk-tuk driver. Beach is 300 m from the GH, so we often got there in the morning. Many things to do by yourself all around, such as visiting the lighthouse, very close to the GH or go to an ayurvedic massage/visit. We'll come back, for sure !!

Stayed for two nights late November, 2016. My room was in the older building and was comfortable. I would suggest requesting a room in the newer building as it seemed a bit more updated and was away from the main road. Great location as it was close to the beach and the lighthouse. Staff were excellent and very helpful booking a back water day trip, offering suggestions about what to see and do, arranging transportation, and letting me pay by credit card because of the currency situation in November. I ate both evening meals at the hotel and they were outstanding, easily as good or better than a restaurant! Breakfasts were also huge and high quality.

The place was easy to find---just tell the driver it is near the lighthouse. Staff were welcoming. The bed was comfortable, wifi was a bit spotty but overall, probably ok. Breakfast upstairs on the terrace was lovely and the omelette and black coffee were especially appreciated. The beach is about five minutes away---easy walking. A couple of good restaurants nearby. Easy to get tuk-tuk rides when you are leaving. Very helpful and professional staff. I definitely would stay there again.
