We made reservations for two nights at Lovedale a few months prior to our travel to India. A few days before our arrival, we were informed by Anshad that his home stay got overbooked for one of the nights we reserved, and we were offered a houseboat instead. Since it was a short notice, and we had no other options,...

From the minute I arrived, Anshad and his charming wife Amina couldn't have been more helpful. They even rustled up lunch for me - the best tomato curry I have ever tasted. Anshad turned out to be a bit of a hero when I told him I was on a personal mission to discover the bungalow my father had been...

Mr Anshad and his wife are very good people. Mr Anshad is very helpful in getting us a two wheeler on rent. You say things and he will be able to arrange. This place is on the lake and very beautiful location for people who like to be in such location. Lot of birds you can see all day so...

No wonder we keep going back to Lovedale. Just returned from yet another extremely enjoyable stay at Lovedale. We go back time and again for the wonderful setting on the lake, for the excellent hospitality offered by Anshad and family, for the delicious meals prepared by Amina and for the peace and tranquility the place offers. We will be back!

We spent two and a half weeks with Anshad and Amina, and they couldn't do enough for us. The meals were excellent, served in an idyllic location overlooking the lake, so we could watch fishing boats passing and see the amazing birds (eagles, cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, bee-eaters...) The chance to be immersed in real local life is not to be...

This was my second visit to Lovedale and Anshad and Amina yet again cooked me delicious gluten free food at every meal. I ate the same food as all the other guests, with a gluten free variation if anything had gluten in it. They never forgot - and they never made a mistake. Lovedale is in the most perfect location....

Stayed here for 1 night with my family and i still feel that i should have added few more days. Location : This place will surely suit to those who are looking for a peaceful and away from the main Alleppey town. Last 1 km stretch to Lovedale is a narrow village road, off the highway, which runs parallel to...

We spent two nights at this friendly homestay. The food was home cooked and wonderful and although it's situated in a very peaceful location you can catch local ferry across the lake and return via another ferry and auto-rickshaw.
