The place is in a nice position and that is all, though there are so many in the same area that I would never consider to go there again. We had decided to relax for two days in this beautiful little village, but we had no peace: men at work redecorating the hotel have been working since early morning to... More

We booked a Double Room with A/C and were not hoping it to be great, but at least hoped for a clean room. Room's condition was pathetic, they don't even do dusting in the rooms and you can find cobwebs everywhere in the room. Service staff is pathetic and behave as if they are doing a favor in getting you... More

Although the room was spacious, it looked shabby. There was no towel in the room and the manager didn't get it arranged despite repeated requests. Worst part was there was construction work going on right outside the room with electric drills which meant absolutely no sleep even after being tired. Request to stop the noise were not entertained. Terrible experience,... More

This small guest house is good value for money, (we paid 1,800 rupees per (double) room per night). The rooms were quite clean and spacious. The bathroom was not particularly nice (showers directly on the floor as in most budget hotels in India) but was ok and with hot water. The position is great, right in the middle of the... More

There was a localized power failure in the early evening power went out in the hotel. There is no power back up, so candles are a necessity & now the problem starts we could not sleep until 2.00 Am because of the mosquito there is lots of mosquito and you cant escape from them.

Vinodhara is quite close to seashore near fishermen's colony. It is in a by-lane of Othavadai street. The rooms are clean and maintained well. If you are on a shoe string budget then this is one of the best hotels. Since it is a budget hotel don't expect something fancy. I stayed during rainy time (Nov. 2015) so I got... More
