Good hospitality and good food. Boat was very old and smelly. Rooms were very bad. Bathroom was bad. Air conditioner is available only in the night after 8 pm, day time it is very hot even during January month. Surely I would not recommend this house boat. Only plus point is staff, were very good and courteous.

Very Bad Experience! Please do not take this House Boat anyways. No hygiene, Bad facility. Water taps are loose, not functional, water is leaking all around the water taps. Food is also not upto the mark (especially vegetarian food). Music facility/LCD TV not exist in Lobby area/common area. Worst is mosquito attack from 6 PM to 8:30 PM, No Air-conditioner works during this time as per them!

There are 3 Meridien houseboats. We are in one of them. That boat was average. Very old kind of boat. But men on boat are very nice. They served awesome food. They gave us welcome drink then served us vegetarian food as we had choose, lunch having rice, dal, raita salad and vegetable. At night they served chapati with dal and vegetables. Taste of food was like home cooked food. But in my opinion boat required renovation. It was a new experience for us.

For the kind of money we paid, I feel the decoration and facilities need to improve.

Totally waste of our money. Please stop your service, do not waste people money with your service. Waste. We are totally upset in the day which we were in your houseboat. Kerela is famous for house boat travel but houseboat spoiled it. We wasted our money.

Really worst experience faced at house boat. No facilities, not hygienic, not safe at all. Also stay at night in a very dirty place full of smelly environment. Lot of mosquitoes and bed full of brown ants. Also water facility in washroom is so bad. Drinking water was also not purifier. Overall I am sure that I will never recommend house boat to any one in Kerala. Meridien House Boat fencing also tied with rope because of breakdown.

Worst houseboat we ever seen. We spent a night there with mosquitoes and Lizards. The beds are smelling, no fresh linens are there. DVD was out of order. Furniture and crockery was not good. No glasses at windows.

Only good part is friendly staff and awesome location. Poor hygiene and cleanliness. Lots of wall lizards and cockroaches for company. No activity for time pass. TV has only DVD playback option, carry your own movies.

Apart from the food everything was nice about the stay at Meridian Houseboat. The location, the cruise through the backwaters all are truly admirable but the most important thing was the hospitality of the crew.They were very helpful and caring regarding the customers comfort.

Overall the experience was good but the sanitary fittings in the wash room was not good. It must be replaced. Also some air freshener should be made available in the house boat as sometimes it smells not so good inside the boat either due to the fish or due to the water in the river, canal or mangrove. The service on the boat was very good and everyone on the boat were very warm, kind and helpful. Food was also very good.

It could have been an awesome experience but it was not unfortunately. We were not satisfied with the boat but we were not given any option. I do not know whether they know what huygiene means. The rooms had a typical smell. There were spider webs on window panes. The bathroom looked so used and dirty. The real trouble we faced was at night when we were attacked by mosquitoes. We could not sit peacefully for even a single minute. My family could not enjoy at all.

As stated earlier, the worst experience was on the house boat. The house boat was a torture and failed reasonable expectations on each and every count. Please note the following in this regard. 1.Almost entire carpet of house boat was wet and the house boat was stinking with foul odour. On inquiring I was told that it rained the previous night, the attendants were not present on the house boat and therefore they could cover the house boat. 2.The furniture at the house boat was inadequate. I was offered uncomfortable plastic chairs on the roof. The seats of dining chairs were broken and bottom of chair could be separated from the back of the chair. The chairs in front of house boat had nails coming out photos attached, that tore up the clothes of both of my wife and mother. 3.The house was dirty and filthy to the extent that there were cob webs all around. 4.The windows of the house boat were broken. The window glass of house boat were broken. The net on windows to prevent pests and mosquitoes were torn. The window latches and window stoppers were broken making it difficult for windows to be closed or opened properly. 5.The roof of the boat was leaking at few places. 6.The cupboards were dirty and not kept properly. 7.The bed covers were dirty and blankets were without blanket covers. 8.Few lights did not work in both the bed rooms. 9.The food was pathetic and not edible. The attendants did not offer me any deserts with any of the meals. So much so that the attendants could not even offer me sealed water bottles and had prefilled 20 liter cans which were not sealed. 10.There were ants in the tray in which I was served morning tea. 11.The kitchen was so dirty that I didnot even allow my family members to even go towards that side. 12.There was no AC in common area in front of the boat and after dark it was impossible to sit there due to mosquitoes. 13.The AC was made to work when the boat was parked and the electricity was taken from local village. This meant that a power cut at local village would deprive me of the AC even after 9 pm. 14.The TV and the DVD player did not work properly and I was offered a pirated movie for entertainment. I understand that other boats even had DTH that was missing on my boat. 15.The attendants were improperly dressed. I was told that there are generally 3 attendants but that day one attendant was off leading to bad and delayed service. Out of the two attendants, one attendant was responsible for cruising the boat.

This stay totally spoiled whole of my trip. I had booked for a premium category House Boat, however when I reached the houseboat, I found my house boat to be in good condition but fully covered by glass, in which they do not switch on the AC in daytime. So it was like travelling in a close room with no AC in the back waters. On the other hand other house boats which were covered in glass, had an open first floor balcony where people could sit in the day time in open air. Since there was no point in going to back waters in this boat we asked the owner to change the boat. He had another boat which was not such a good quality, but had an open first floor balcony, we agreed to switch given that we will get all the facilities that we had book for and paid for. Still the new boat we went in had no proper food and staff was also not very cooperative. They parked the boat next to garbage for lunch and again some dirty place in night. We had booked it for 2 nights, but we had to leave it only after 1st night since it was not at all place where we could have spent another night.

Hopeless, the food was terrible, they charged for AC, AC was acting as fan no cooling. The rooms were stinking. No hygiene maintained by the staff. Got food poisoning and was vomiting all night. The bathroom was full of cockroach. The worst thing that could have happened.

Room had cockroaches spiders lizards etc etc. Very poor hygiene. Upper deck very shabby. The AC put on only after 9 pm. Boat ride ends at 5:30 pm. Food was ok. Staff was friendly. Better options available.

The boatman was driving the boat too slowly, so in comparison to other boats, our boat covered less area. In menu, fruits were there but were not served to us, room should have no dust, still overall its satisfactory. Food should have contained more amount of non-veg because the nonveg item was served in a too small quantity.
