We stayed in Siva Guest House for 2 nights in the AC room. The accommodation is very cheap and yet very clean. It had all the basic amenities. It is also very close to all the sightseeing places and the beach. The manager, Mr. Madhavan, is also a very nice and helpful person.

We had a spotlessly clean room with very comfy beds. The location was excellent and the price was very good value. We looked into about 7 other guesthouses in the area but Siva was by far the cleanest, with a good size room and bathroom. Because temperatures had soared into the 40s, we took an AC room. There were a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and thought it was fine. The guesthouse is in a good location if you want to see the sights and eat in tourist restaurants for breakfast (which we did). The room was clean enough, had heaps of lights and a bookshelf for storage which was pretty helpful. The price included towels, soap and toilet paper... More

Rooms in the front of the hotel get some noise from the street but we could change second floor room which were more quiet. Hotel is situated in the street parallel to beach so it is nearby all restaurant... More

Room (3.5/5): We had a non-A/C room for 800rs on the first floor. The room was big and bright and good value for the money. Problem was that one of the windows had no curtain and thus it was too bright to sleep after 7am. Service (4/5): Since this is a guest house and not a hotel there is not... More

For reasonable cost travel without additional risks, this is your choice. The place is centrally located, clean, neat and well kept. It is not the fanciest of them all, but it is a safe place for a good sleep. The owner and staff are amazingly friendly and take well care of their guests. There are rooms with fan and rooms... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a clean, fresh and pleasant surrounding. The personnel was very nice and helpful. It is situated in a street with good restaurants and cafes. The beach and ancient temples are nearby. We warmly recommend the Siva Guest house. Francoise Dubois

Nice clean sheets & towels. In the middle of town but a fairly quiet street at night. We had 2 rooms on the... More

well, at least my room was. some bed bugs too, i had an itchy evening. the staff however was nice and the coffee shop across the street is pleasant enough. just not a terribly interesting town all told, much better places to spend one's time and money. arjuna's penance is pretty cool though.
