Ok for a few nights. Clean. Cool terrace with chairs. Comfortable bed. TV (not tried) A/C and fan. Safe drinking water provided. Threadbare towels and sheets. No hot water but warm bucket wash. Shower didn't work. On the beach but noisy. Nicer and cheaper places on the cliff top. Book direct for a better price.

It is a nice traditional budget hotel.It always reminds me the atmosphere of an ashrama, a sweet fragrance all over , with clean corridors and wooden chairs, clean toilets. I miss mom lekha's and wanna go again.

We've stayed here many times before and will be there again this trip, the second this year. It's not European luxury but has many plus points. Clean, good security, great location, Very good eating places within a 100 m. Right next to the beach. This end of the beach is very busy as it's auspicious place for pilgrims. If you...

Mom Lekha's is a small, clean hotel right on the Papanasam Beach. Please note that it is not on the cliff. The hotel does not have a kitchen but the staff there was very friendly and helpful. We had kids with us and they boiled milk for us and also took me medical store on their bike when i needed...

We stayed there for 2 nights but the hospitality was very poor. We asked them to give driving water which they dint serve. Rest view was very beautiful beside te sea beach. And also 10 mins from north cliff. But costly in off season.

Dear Miss. Divya, Thank you so much for taking time to write good about us. But there is a small correction regarding the rate structure quoted by you. It is true that we had given out rooms for lesser prices, way back in November 2014, during the time of refurbishment. But those discounts are no longer available wit us. The...

After so many so-so budget hotel experiences in India, this place was a welcome surprise. Staff was very helpful and agreeable, and prices were very reasonable for one of the closest to the beach hotels in Varkala. There's something about falling asleep to the sound of waves, and you can definitely hear them in the room. Sure, it's a little...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have been welcoming guests from all around the world for more than a decade. Still, you may not find us listed or mentioned in any travel magazine as a big place to stay in Kerala. We are proud and the guests are content, to call ourselves a small yet extremely comfortable guest house in Varkala. What it offers as a guest house is a few moments of comfort, peace and friendliness on any traveler's journey. Over the years, Lekha's has been promoting tourism, in terms of this 'hospitality', which is highly regarded in Kerala's unique culture. ... more   less
