Nice stay. No disturbances and quite ambience. Affordable AC rooms. Very near to beach. Surrounded by more restaurants and shop. Just 300 meters away from Beach. Beach side dining also available. Very easy to find. Very near to attractions

If you come to visit Mallampuram, this guest house is very clean and affordable. The location is also the best in this small town and the duty manager is very helpful. Next door is a restaurant owned by a French man offering western food options, however, if you looking for something traditional try Moonmakers. The food is okay, service here... More

Very quiet place. Half a kilometre is a beach. Friendly staff. Power cuts will be there and they don't have proper backup for it. If you are travelling Solo or with the friends, this is the place. All other fancy place doesn't matter.

This guest house meets more than the essenatial requirements for a traveller. Located within walking distance to the Shore Temple, Arjuna's penance, Mahisura Mardini caves and the light house and in very close proximity to restuarants and shops. Mr. Mani and Mr. Shekar are very cordial and helpful and it helped saving time and energy to discover the town as... More

My first visit to Mahabalipuram was a memorable one thanks a great deal to the lovely staff at Vinodhara Guest House. Special shout out to Mani, who took very good care of us. We choose the Double Room which was spacious. The toilets were very clean. All this for ₹1200 a night, I think its a steal. I strongly recommend... More

Best place to stay in Mahabalipuram. Hot water bath, comfy bed and air conditioned room for such reasonable price. I had the best experience with the staff and cafe vinodhara is the best place to sit for hours. don't forget to try their pancakes.

The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The ac room is great. clean sheets, no bug, and the food and Real coffee they serve in their cafe is excellent. Definitely lots of bang for your buck. Stayed here for five days and I couldn't have had a better time.

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
