Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great experience
We booked for a family with kids, had some issues with the boat on the way, but regardless the crew did their best to keep going. A little advice to the crew to draw the mosquito nets before the boat is docked for the night to reduce the mosquitoes, kids tv channels would be great and would not cost a lot, but otherwise would recommend it for those looking for a reasonable deal. Thank you.

More than a nice biew
If you are looking for a full package of good food and nice view ,i suggest you this bout house. I had a pineapple stew that i fall inlove with it and chef made it again for the diner too.they were so kind. They also made a special prawn tandory by the fresh prawn we bought in the way. The diner,lunch and breakfast were so different with resturants and hotels and that made this trip so memorable for me. The trip was relaxing and the balcony in the top is another good advantage to some other boats. Early in the morning i got up with a voice of an indisn lady singing a song in far.i m not sure it was live or radio but i felt i m in heaven. Room is clean and bed comfotable and big for european. I m so happy with the crew. We gave them a good tip.

Very pleasant experience
Four of us stayed on the houseboat for one night. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We had the choice to stop off and buy some fresh fish for dinner along the way - which we did. Chicken curry was provided as part of the package but we wanted fish. The cook prepared the fish for dinner with some rice and vegetables. Very delicious. An Indian style breakfast was also provided. The rooms are very basic but were clean. We enjoyed the trip around the backwaters during the afternoon and the next morning. All communication regarding the booking was dealt with quickly. The owner met us on arrival and explained everything and he was there to greet us on or return. The price was very reasonable.

The grand cruise with great experience.
One of a lifetime experience. The house boat was very warm and inviting and must say very well maintained. Doney, three cheers for u and ur team. Had a great time on board and the service rendered by your team was upto the mark. The food offered is one time kerala cuisine (which was good)and one time north indian(dont keep a cap on number of rotis served). All in all, a wonderful experience and if you require anything in addition, you can convey the same before hand and it would be done. Thank you doney and the grand cruise for making our backwater trip memorable. P.s- thankyou on behalf of harshvardhan for the favour rendered doney.
