Overpriced. The website says Rs 10232 but was charged Rs 12000. Unfriendly staff, dirty sofas, Dirty dining table, red ants on the dining table, no hot water for bath! no dustbin in the room! Semi-functional toilet flush! The houseboat is not worth Rs 8000 also.
I doubt if the owner Eldhose Baby ever gets on to the boat and checks its actual condition. We were a family of 3 and it was a disappointing experience. Evening, the boat was anchored at a place where we could not even get down on land.Unfriendly staff, who didn't bother to even talk to us in the entire trip. I don't recommend Nova Holidays Houseboat for all the above reasons.
Trip Advisor charges amount extremely high than the actual rent of the boat. Boat staff was not well dressed and clean. It appeared they did not take bath. food was good and staff was cooperative. No effort from the staff or the owner of the boat to make the houseboat experience memorable. Cook did not know Hindi or English. No guidance about the location or places was provided, the job of the staff and owner was just limited to float the boat and provide the food. I shall suggest my friends to visit the place just for boating and scenic view and not for stay in houseboat.
It was very pleasant stay @ Nova holidays houseboat,Aleppy.Food and hospitality was extremely good. Eldose( Owner)was very cooperative as host.
It's really worth spending .
We had booked a house boat day cruise for 10 people. The booking process was very easy and the owner was very professional in explaining all the options upfront. On arriving on the day, the boat that was given to us went well beyond our expectations. It was a luxurious boat with 3 bedrooms, upper deck etc and it was maintained to a very high standard. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. They even stopped en-route at some shops for us to buy different varieties of seafood. The lunch was awesome with many dishes and all were very tasty. The whole cruise was very relaxing and enjoyable and we all had a great time. Would recommend Nova Houseboats to everyone.
Its very nice place to visit
Very wonderful & beautiful place
