I spent a wonderful 3 nights with Motty and Lali in February. They are the most welcoming people you could hope to meet. Lali's home cooked food was delicious and Motty spared no effort in helping me organise my time in the backwaters and my journey onwards. The rooms, and the house, are absolutely beautiful, full of interesting furniture and...

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!...

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...

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....

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...

A wonderful Homestay. Three rooms one of which is in the main house and two separate purpose built rooms in the garden. We stayed in the ground floor room in the garden and it was just delightful.

Very comfortable home stay! Old/antique furniture, air conditioned, clean and great location. What makes it really special is Motty and his wife. They are warm and engaging and full of useful information about the area. Let them suggest....and arrange houseboat trips and car with a driver for day trips. This is where I'm staying next trip....and the trip after!

I travel to Alleppey once a year for work, and plan the timing of the trip around availability at Motty's. I have been to Alleppey on and off for some years, and stayed at most of its better hotels. Motty's is the only place I now stay at. The architecture and interiors give you a real sense of Kerelan high...
