The last time i visited this hotel was way back in 2005. At the time the hotel was terrible in terms of the quality of the rooms. This time round we chose this hotel due to the location and the views from this hotel which are spectacular. the Rooms have been Refurbished and are in good condition so are the... More

The women in the reception was at auto-pilot did not feel welcoming at all. I do not always expect service but in this case as this is supposed to be a "fancy" one I expect some service. However the room was quite old and I had no good feeling staying here. Overpriced for sure. No wifi. The location is good... More

Booked two rooms and were allotted adjoining rooms , No. 213 and 214. The location of the hotel is fantastic and very rare. Hotel stands on the rock... More

Arrived in Murueshwar by bus,from Mangalore on Independence day.It was very busy,which added to the atmosphere. What a fabulous surprise to see the magnificent Shiva and all the other scuptures,also,the Murdeshwar temple on the other side.( I didn't realize they were so vast). We chose the RNS Residency for the views,more than anything else,there isn't alot of choice if you... More

My package includes breakfast but restaurant staff denied as they said time is past 10 'O clock !!! We went to a nearby restaurant - Kamath Hotel - and had a very nice... More

I along with my eight friends had been to RNS Residency. We stayed there on 1st Feb and 2nd Feb. Very good location and found very safe place for ladies. We all liked the complimentary breakfast. Overall worth staying.

We went to Murudeshwar with another family and spent 2 nights at RNS. we picked the room overlooking the sea (with a nice balcony) giving us great views of the sea and the beach. Rooms were clean and functional. Food was excellent and service was quite nice. This is one of the best hotels in Murudeshwar- infact the only good... More

Recently during the weekend stayed at this hotel and its not the worth the value for money, though this belongs to the Naveen group , but the maintainence is pathetic, hotel is gold, neglected on the maintainence. The package includes complementary breakfast but it is not worth it. Any road side hotel will provide better breakfast than this hotel. Overall... More

located right behind the Murudeshwar temple and next to the beach, the hotel provides easy access to both the attractions. The highlight however remains the view of the sea from the room which is breathtaking. A little over priced for the rooms but the service is top notch. I would recommend them to improve the quality of sheets in the... More

this hotel is walk able to both beach and temple,its location makes it a great place to stay and this is probably the best you can find in the near by areas. there are few home stays available near kamat which are pretty upscale. while the property is average ,this may be the best find in the nearby areas
