Motty and Lali and Jack made our stay so wonderful.Truly generous, kind and respected people that was reflected in their beautiful home and guest rooms and courtyard. Teakwood and true hospitality. Lali's tremendously delicious food was matched only by the helpfulness and accomodating ways shown us at every turn. Definitely and HIGHLY recommended and we WILL see them again soon! Thank you so much Motty, Lali and Jack (how are the baby teeth?)

Room Tip: all rooms are great.

We had a wonderful time with Motty & Lali during our 3 day stay in Alappuzha. We encountered the warmest, kindest hospitality, and we have some unforgettable memories from our stay (the dog naming party was brilliant fun, Jack!) Mottys obviously a respected resident of Allepey and his involvement & knowledge of the town was really useful. The rooms without question are extremely considered in design & function. pretty, spacious & very clean. Beautiful Lali is a wonderful cook & we were spoilt rotten with both of their kindness and warmth during our stay with them. An unforgettable place to stay.

Motty and Lali are the perfect hosts and their homestay rooms are fantastic. We only stayed for 2 nights but felt 'home from home' thanks to brilliant hospitality and freely given knowledge of Alleppey, Kerela and beyond. Good advice on where to eat and a fantastic canoe trip organised for us through the backwaters that are unseen to the large houseboat tours. Real Kerela with charming hosts.

Alleppey is a charming and unpretentious town. The backwaters is amazing. Motty's homestay fits right in this picture. The charms of the homestay, like alleppey and its backwaters, cannot be separated from the people who run it - Motty and his wife Lali. They were very warm and hospitable to me. The room I had was lovely and very comfortable. I especially liked mealtimes at the dining table set up with Christmas decor, where I eat with motty and Lali, tasting lali's wonderful cooking and having a conversation with them over a beer or Indian rum!

He's SUCH a poppet, and Lali (Mrs Motty) is a delight. Nothing is too much trouble - Lali will teach you to cook (she makes it look SO much easier than it is) and the rooms are lovely. They make you feel part of the family and will give you very good insider advice about the do-s and don't-s. If you can, do.
