I spent a pleasant time here. Rooms are ok for the price. if possible get one with balcony, facing the sea - beautiful! same with the rooftop restaurant. but I have to be honest - the best view doesn't include the best food. often not so tasty, the meals seemed to be a varity of whats left in the kitchen...

Our first night was spend in a room that wasn’t facing the sea, I do not advise staying in these rooms, they are dark and grotty and not really worth the money. On the second night we moved to a room facing the sea with balcony, this was infinitely better and would recommend these rooms. The staff weren’t very friendly... More

Loved my stay here. Spacious basic clean rooms with balcony overlooking the action on the beach. Good value would definitely stay here again. Restaurant on roof but like all restaurants around overpriced best food is 10 min walk in town where locals go.

We stayed in the guest house between dec 26-29 and it was a fabulous experience. The rooms are basic yet clean and we'll maintained and the icing on the cake is the view. The sea is just 50 meters away and you can view the waves and listen to the roar all through the night. I would strongly recommend Sri... More

I stayed here on two separate occasions for several nights. The location is excellent. The rooms are clean. Most importantly the people are very friendly and kind. I has a front beach room. Luxury that is affordable. I recommend staying here.

This place is amazing and is located in the fishermen's colony, right on the beach. Called the owner Lingesh to make the booking for the following day, who was very friendly and courteous. The balcony opens on to the beach. There are many fishing boats on the beach and you can witness all the fishing activities in the morning, which... More

Sri harul guesthouse looks over the beach and is set in a quiet street along the sea front very close to the main shopping street. The rooms are basic but have good showers and a comfortable bed, towels are provided but there's no bedding so take your own if fussed. The owner is very friendly and there are surf boards... More

This guesthouse is ideally located right on the water and just a few minutes walk from restaurants and cafés. The rooms are quite basic, but still good value given how cheap they are. The rooftop restaurant/café has a good selection of food and drinks. This place would benefit from WiFi though.

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
