We stayed there for five days. It was a sea facing room, the waves beats the shore and you can hear it from the room.the scenic view was beautiful. There is a feel of isolation which is enthralling. Room was clean as well the bathroom. The hotel people are just great, they are friendly always helping you and making your... More

We found this place, quite by accident, on a day when the power was out in the entire area for most of the day. We had checked into another hotel, which we believed would take credit card payment for the room. When it turned out they couldn't, we had to relocate. Since we had ordered food from the Rockholm, we... More

Old world charm still remains. From the first time in 1982 till date, time has stood still in this homely heaven. The place, most of the people, and the food... Incomparable. Be it a weekend getaway or a long weekend or an extended vacation. One has got to experience it to believe it. The only thing that keeps changing by... More

Rockholm is not a luxury hotel, but the location and the ambience cannot be praised enough. I have been coming to Kovalam for 20 years and this is by far the place I would chose to stay again. It small enough to have a very personal charm while big enough to ensure you have the privacy you want. Ot's great... More

First of all this hotel is in Kovalam, not in Trivandrum. The hotel deserves the excellent rating considering its location only. It is just over the cliff of Arabian Sea and taking breakfast in the lawn gives you a hundred eighty degree view of the ocean. We were staying in the penthouse. The view from there is simply awesome and... More

First of all Freddie at the reception is a really nice guy. He was very helpful and chatty. He even got us a taxi to Kumarakom. This hotel is not like western hotels. The ac is old but works. They don't have television but why would you need a TV while on vacation in Kovalam. They do have a fridge.... More

Staff all very helpful. Rooms were pretty good. Hot shower. A few seats and a tele and fridge. Great balcony overlooking an absolutely stunning view of the sea and the rocks. They offer washing clothes facilities and money changing. Restaurant was good. Stayed with 20 others and no complaints!

We stayed at the Rockholm in January 2009 (not 2012) for two weeks. When we arrived the room we were initially given was at the back of the hotel and was a bit disappointing, small with no view, however it was clean & the bathroom was in good condition. The sea was quite rough however, and people who had rooms... More

I stayed here for two nights (24th and 25th Feb, 2012) along with my wife and kid. I booked an AC room in the new building for INR 3500 plus taxes and I really regretted it. The entire place needed renovation and upliftment. The look and feel was that of the cheap sea-side hotel in Digha. Even the air-conditioner in... More

Rockholm is a seaside bungalow converted into a hotel, with a classic old home feel to it. Sitting on a rock, the hotel offer spectacular views of the Arabian sea. With both air-conditioned and non air-conditioned rooms, the hotel has some of the biggest rooms in Kovalam. The highlights of the hotel (which also happens to the oldest in Kovalam)... More
