“Best Home stay in allepey - review by Rajeev”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Hi ,
I am Rajeev.M working as a Software Professional in chennai. I have been in allepey two times and both the time i have stayed in Regal Mansion home stay only. The ambience over here is such that it pulls you again and again to stay there.The Rooms have a professional 5 star touch and is very neat and clean Also a lot of Cine artists and foreigners keep coming as their guests to stay in regal Home stay because of the hospitality .The Owners are so friendly and you feel like you are staying at home and not a Hotel. The other great advantage is that it is near to Allepey bus station and also Boat Depot. My only suggestion to them would be to review their pricing for the rooms and a 24 hour stay period instead of a fixed check out time. Remaining everything is great here.
The Economical and Best way to travel around in Allepey city and nearby would be to hire an Autorickshaw which is much cheaper than Hiring Taxi. I personally would suggest Mr.Sujith whose email id is [--] and mobile number [--]. You can hire his Autorickshaw . He too is very friendly and knows each corner of allepey well . The rates he charge for roaming around in his Auto is pretty much less and he is a really friendly and trustworthy guy.

We spent three nights at this nice place in Alappuzha. Not easy to write a lot about it, it was just a good place to stay.

a few more notes
- The owners are very friendly, though it wasn't always easy to communicate with them in English.
- the house has a nice veranda to sit on
- unfortunately the road in front of the house becomes quite busy during the day, so be prepared that it isn't quiet on the veranda (during the nights it is)
- it is a clean place

Room Tip: take the corner room with two windows!

I stayed at the Regal Mansion in late November 2011, having found it quite by accident - from the outside it is the nicest looking homestay (guest house) on the street. Walking through the front door it was a wonderful surprise to find how beautiful and new it is inside as well. My room was bright and clean, and had cable tv and wi fi. The location is on a quiet cocoanut grove lane that is walking distance to the "Finishing Point" (houseboat dock), and there is an ayurvedic center across the way. Every morning Raji prepared a delicious omelette and toast for me for breakfast.

Unfortunately, the weather was unusual while I was there and rained for several days in a row - and then there was a local labor strike. I ended up staying for three nights. Raji and Santosh, the owners, couldnt have been more hospitable and charming-- they arranged my overnight houseboat tour and transportation there, Raji arranged a manicure appt in town for me (something to do on a rainy day) with a rickshaw ride, they gave information about restaurants in town, and even sent their brother-in-law to pick me up after my houseboat tour when the rickshaws were on strike. On the labor strike day when all the restaurants and shops were closed until 6pm, Raji took pity on me and prepared a lovely Southern Indian lunch. We had time to chat and share photos; it was a wonderful personal experience and so nice learning about her family and the Southern Indian culture.

If you are traveling through Southern India and want a real "homestay" experience, you will love the Regal Mansion. It is just that -- staying at the home of an Indian family, in a lovely guest room. I dont think being asked to take off your shoes before you enter (we do that in the USA also) is an inconvenience (as one reviewer remarked); it speaks about how clean the property is kept, and how informal your stay will be. If you enjoy homestay comfort, you will completely love the Regal Mansion.

Room Tip: There are only five rooms; they all seem to be equal - and quiet.
