Let me begin with the negatives. The rooms (first of all those on the second floor) are very spartan and simple. Rooms threadbare, like everywhere in India, no toiletpapers or soap for this price. There is a rooftop restaurant that runs separate by another owner. It has a beautifull view and nice atmosphere, BUT the service is unbelievable slow, rude... More

Had second floor room with balcony with ocean view, it was basic, very clean, very good price, good food. I also hired... More

I have been to this place couple of times... Nice place to stay... especially the food was awesome. And also the service also good. Morning breakfast was excellent. The guest house owners i think linges and pasupathi are gentle and their attitude towards their customer is good. But this is not the place for luxurious stay.

I stayed only one night at Sri Harul but I understand that many guests prolong there for longer periods, sometimes even months and many of them are regular customers. As already mentioned in several previous reviews, the owners indeed ARE VERY NICE!!! Still I have to say that the guesthouse is not offering an outstanding room quality nor cleanness standard....

Fab location right on a 'working ' beach and a stroll to shops and places to eat. Just book a first floor, sea facing room, sit on the balcony and watch the fishermen come and go, cows wandering between the boats..... just wonderful. Rooms are basic, very functional and great value, the sea breeze was a bonus but their is... More

If you are not looking for luxury and you can make do with basics then this place is good. First of all, the view from my upstairs room facing the beach was fantastic and couldn't be beaten anywhere. Just don't twist your ankle when approaching the hotel entrance! and be sure to have matches and candle ready for constant power... More

Having listened to advice on TP we headed for Mahabalipuram for one night after visiting the Andaman Islands and what a delightful little fishing town. We stayed right on the beach at the Sri Harul Guesthouse and have to say that although when you first arrive it looks a little rough, the place was wonderful. Extremely competitively priced we had...

The rooms are big enough ande clean, also the bathroom, and the balcony looking on the sea is perfect to relax watching the fishermen preparing their boats, leaving or coming back... also if it means waking up very early in the morning.
