The location given in the heading is not correct, the Horn Bill Nest is located in Corbyn's Cove which has been confused with Hawabill Nest. This is by far the best accommodation available on Neil Island. The island is very small and accommodation here is also not of the five star variety. But since we were out most of the... More

Well maintained hotel with cordial stall. Located near jetty so you can easily catch ferry to getaways. The food is not go good but not bad either, all in all food is so so. You can try this option reliably in my opinion.

We had a great stay at Hawabill! It's lovely and clean and in an excellent location - a few minutes walk from the jetty and also the market. We were warmly greeted by lovely Sanjay and the whole team were helpful and accommodating. Make sure you order your supper early (in the afternoon) because everything is bought fresh from the...

This is a govt maintained hotel. It is located near the jetty. A very good property. The rooms are very neat and clean. There are seven room in total. The furnitures, TV, and everything is new and up to date. But everything lacks maintenance. You may face small problems with the bathroom equipments. There is verandah with each room. All... More

Its located near the Jetty, main market ie Neil Kendra and far from the Beaches. The rooms are good , restaurant is average. Very good on budget. The staffs are very helpful . I would recommend this place rather than costly resorts.

It is a very beautiful place in Andaman. If you want to explore and enjoy the beauty of entire Neil Island then you have to stay minimum 2nights there. I stayed in this resort for only one night. Location wise it is very close to the Jetty. Rooms, Services and Food were very good. It is a Govt. resort, that... More

Firstly, the location of this Govt. run accommodation is at Neil Island and not on Corbyn's Cove Beach in Port Blair as mentioned in the address. The location of the resort is approximately 300 metres away from the Neil jetty, so if you do not have large or bulky luggage you can simply walk across to the resort without hiring... More
