Stayed for two nights late November, 2016. My room was in the older building and was comfortable. I would suggest requesting a room in the newer building as it seemed a bit more updated and was away from the main road. Great location as it was close to the beach and the lighthouse. Staff were excellent and very helpful booking...

The place was easy to find---just tell the driver it is near the lighthouse. Staff were welcoming. The bed was comfortable, wifi was a bit spotty but overall, probably ok. Breakfast upstairs on the terrace was lovely and the omelette and black coffee were especially appreciated. The beach is about five minutes away---easy walking. A couple of good restaurants nearby....

We stayed here for 1 night, the room was clean & spacious, the wifi worked well downstairs, the location was very good close to the beach, but the best part was the helpful friendly staff. We had a train to catch at 7am & they don't usually start serving breakfast until 7.30am, but they prepared toast, chai, bananas, pineapple &...

We rocked up late last night without a booking and the owner showed us the rooms. All were simple and clean although smelt musty, and bedsheets were, probably from lack of use. We were the only ones staying there, probably due to it being low season. The room we stayed in had a clean bathroom with a very good shower!...

It is a very nice place where the landlord will do all what he can for you. He can organise a very nice trip on the backwaters. He cooks very well Kerala specialties. Just an advice, take a room in the small house or a room in the big house who is on the street side.
