The Munroe heritage inn wrote a review Nov 2018
Kollam, India8 contributions
This was the third of four homestays and so far easily the best room and best host. Large clean comfortable room and bathroom in a stand alone chalet with own verandah. Excellent and plentiful meals provided. No bars or cafes anywhere near but close to small local shops. The location is ideal for low key canoe cruises on the narrow backwaters big boats cannot reach. Canoe trips just across the road and bigger boat trips from nearby. Suresh is a very attentive host - nothing us too much trouble and he is very warm and welcoming. An excellent host Easy to get to by train from Kollam Cochi or Allepey

Great food. Clean comfortable rooms and beds. Stay here you won't be disappointed. Serene and picturesque right on the lake. We were a large group and the food and hospitality was second to none. Tea was yummy too.

Direkt am Ufer des Ashtamudi Lake liegt ein wunderschöner Traum von einem Kerala Homestay. Hängematten zwischen Kokospalmen laden zum Träumen ein. Abends kommen die Fischer zu den chinesischen Fischernetzen. Entspannung und Ruhe pur. Dazu gehört eine Ayurveda Behandlung, die vom Ayurveda Doktor im eigenen Gebäude auf dem Gelände durchgeführt werden. Die Gästezimmer sind großzügig, praktisch eingerichtet, Klimaanlage vorhanden. Großer Speiseraum mit Blick auf den See, Sitzecke. Bibliothek. Sehr gutes WLAN. Stella und Peter kümmern sich um das Wohl der Gäste, auch Ausflüge können organisiert werden. Die Küche ist köstlich, jeden Tag werden lokale Kerala typische Speisen, auf Wunsch auch internationale Gerichte gereicht.

We recently stayed at the Ashtamudi Home stay in KOLLAM, What a great place. Every one was so helpful and the food they prepared each day was superb and always had ice cold beer to hand. Also organised a great trip around Kollam in a Tuk Tuk with Sudhi ( Another review).
