Basic fascilities but friendly staff and a picturesque setting make this the perfect place to stay and enjoy the beach. Short walk to the beachfront and the shops as well Meals there are one of the best around and don't break the bank Overall one to come back to over and over again

The position is amazing, had Room 10 in the old part which overlooked the rocks, went to sleep like a baby each night to the sounds of crashing waves. In fact, couldn't wait to get back to my room each night to sit on the balcony and watch the sea. The staff are terribly sweet and did their utmost to... More

Poor old hotel is a bit shabby but the location is fabulous! The locks on the doors were good, old but good. I felt reasonably safe here given the rape situation in India. Always a concern for white women travelling alone. I loved the Arabian Sea crashing on the rocks below my room. There's not a whole lot to do... More

I have first to confess that we haven't stayed at the Rockholm but in rooms right next to it but have been coming for breakfast, lunch or dinner on its terrifically located terrace for ten years now on and off. No-one could fail to be impressed by its location. In bustling Kovalam, the Rockholm is a peaceful sanctuary tucked away... More

The hotel location is great overlooking the rocks and beach, the room was clean and food in the restaurant excellent. The hotel arranged transfers for us and everything worked perfectly. My thanks to Roger and... More

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
