We loved the fact that we stumbled on this place. It was one of those days when you pick a place to start your search and never look any further. Cheap, spacious, with WiFi in the room, hot water, cable TV and friendly staff always willing to help. We would have stayed longer if we had known about it earlier.

I stayed at Vinodhara Guest House for 3 nights in the middle of March. Check-in was simple and I was shown to my room on the first floor. Towel, bedding and toilet roll were provided. My windows didn't have mosquito netting, but when I asked, they took some netting from one of the empty rooms. My room also had a... More

I visited twice to this hotel with my girl friend. First time we took non a/c as it was in November and the second time because of heat in March we took a/c. Rooms are very clean and very cheep. We paid 800rs/night for a very comfortable, spacious a/c room. Very friendly owners. They have a free wifi. They also... More

I really like this guesthouse, for the price it has everything you need and is in a good location. Hot water showers (always a bonus!) wifi and clean rooms. The staff are all lovely and welcoming. The coffee house attached to this guest house has good toasties and breakfast.

We stayed here in the cheapest available room - paying 660 including tax for a fan cooled room with two single beds - pushed together and a private bathroom. There was a small terrace just outside with two chairs. No TV in the room as indicated by the booking site, but internet access was (just a say) available while in... More

We were a group of four girls travelling from Bangalore and had booked the room through makemytrip.com. We had a pleasant stay for two nights. We had room nos 8 and 9 on the second floor. The rooms were basic but were pretty clean. The bathrooms were quite big, unlike other guesthouses in this price range. What we liked most... More

I took a room without AC. The room was just OK. I was welcomed by 1000 hungry mosquitoes, which were very happy to see such a perfect dinner like me walking in. “All out” or other help against mosquitoes was not provided. I tried to contact the reception, but after 11 pm no one was there. So if you decide... More

We booked the deluxe room, a little treat for ourself after long days travelling. So as we booked we expected : free wifi, balcony with view, A/C ... the wifi wasn't working, the balcony had a view on a wall. Ok, we can survive with that, but we paid for a room with A/C and after checking in, one of... More
