Colonel Roy was an awesome host. Anil, Molly and Roy made our stay so peaceful and introduced us to a side of Trivandrum we weren't aware of. The food was amazing and Roy's garden full of orchids was so beautiful. Thanks Roy! We'll be back.

We stopped with Roy for five days, his beautifull home is in the middle of town perfectley placed for all the sights. Ask him to sort your taxi and and any thing else you need and he will be only to pleased to offer help and advice. The rooms are large and airy with a fridge, Roy will also sell... More

This review is long overdue as I stayed with my boyfriend in November but it has stuck with me just how amazing the experience was. Not only is Roy a delight to talk to but also the house is lovely, as is the garden. A great location in a busy area yet tucked away that it's really tranquil. Would definitely... More

Varikatt house is indeed charming at the first sight but really needs a good refurbishment, fresh paint and thorough housecleaning. The back rooms are really dark and gloomy. Very noise as well, since it is located in a crossroad, with barking dogs, henhouse, churchs and tuk tuk horns 7/24. Doesn't worth the rating...

A very overpriced homestay with dark and unclean rooms. The owner was caring and hospitable but it didnt make up for the lack of comfort and cosiness. Location was good though in a nice neighbourhood.

Homestays don't get any better than Col. Roy Kuncheria's Varikatt Heritage. Roy and his excellent staff make you feel at home straight away and are of great assistance to any of their guests. Roy is a real officer and a gentleman, and he had a lot of great stories to tell over the excellent dinners that we enjoyed during our... More

What a delightful home and gracious host. Clean, Secure and welcoming! Location could not be better-does not get more central than this. A most gracious host. Generous room size matched by facilities. Beds are great, attached WC are of generous size and good sanitary fittings. Basic toiletries are provided. Breakfast is delicious and a choice between continental or South Indian.... More

Staying at Varikatt Herirage was a real treat. It is very much a home away from home. The rooms are very large, the bed bigger than a king, though a little hard. The bathroom is also very spacious. They are a little plain, though very clean. Roy is quick to provide you with any information you need, and even is... More

Roy, the owner, could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Situated right in the heart of Trivandrum within easy walking distance of all the main sites. We unfortunately stayed only one night and wish it had been longer. Good value for money and the staff were helpful and attentive. The rooms had everything we needed and we would definitely... More

This is a good place to stay in the middle of Tiruvananthapuram and has reasonable air conditioned rooms but needs a lot of money spending on it to bring it up to a good standard. It is a heritage house but is living on the faded glory of the past. We had no hot water the first night but that... More
