Nice, quiet, calm oasis around a garden courtyard. Basic rooms with AC run by a friendly family, good value at 1200 a night. The beds were quite hard, which was the main drawback. I'd agree with other reviews that the rooms could do with a facelift, but perhaps some are worse than others, as we found it quite charming and... More

We stayed here off season and negotiated an A/C room down to 1050. This still is wayyyy over the price these rooms are worth. The family are nice but the rooms really let this place down. Walls are dirty, electrics are dodgy and the water fixings are as good as rusted out making for a metallic smelling/feeling cold (luke warm... More

Booked Greenwoods based on Tripadvisor reviews but appalled by the room presented to us for 1500 rupees. Dirty headmarks on the wall and desperately in need of repainting. A reduction to 900 rupees didn't make it any more attractive so we left. Owners pleasant.

Honestly I don't know how people can rate this place 4 or 5 stars. The family is really very nice and the garden too, but the rooms are a disaster. Totally run down, refugee camp style with hanging curtains and wires. My pillow was filthy as hell with stains all over, I mean Indian trains are cleaner than that. Water... More

My family stayed at the Greenwood in July & August of this year and can honestly say that I have never stayed at a friendlier place. Sindu and her amazing mother and father made us feel like a part of the family and I really enjoyed my stay, so much so that I plan to return next year and could... More

We stay in Greenwoods this August just for one night because we change our plans at last moment. But the place and atmosphere was wonderful. The rooms and facilities are clean and fully equipped: air conditioned, hot water, fans, mosquito nets, etc. We also have a little roof to clean and dry our clothes. They have a beautiful garden and... More

We went for 3 nights at the Greenwoods in July; the room was simple but really nice; the breakfast (not in the price of the room) delicious and we really appreciated the calm in the garden and at the same time you are next to the beach, restaurants, and shops; it is not expensive for this quality. the family is...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in March/April 2013 for a relaxing week whilst on a 5 month trip in India. Sindu our sweet hostess made our stay very comfortable (with a reduced price on a lovely big room at the front of the garden, because of the time of year). We were originally drawn to Greenwoods because of their... More
