We had booked into Dreams but ended up here. Perhaps not quite as luxurious but a better location as it turned out (60 seconds walk to the beach steps). It was clean and the staff friendly (though occasionally not around). Wifi worked well as did AC. Would recommend. They tend to leave the doors open so you have to be... More

The rooms are nice and clean only downstairs one room the balcony is not to use, because the garbage is around the corner and it smells not good...the worst is that is next door they building new guesthouse and the chillout cafe disturbing your sleep for sure almost every night...if you wanna enjoy your holiday check in somewhere else....

Thank you Stanley for our wonderful stay. We came for one week over the New Year and stayed for two! We had a good-sized, very clean AC room with balcony and views to the sea. The hotel has a TV in the upstairs common room and guests have use of a fridge. The hotel is within easy walking distance of... More

Best budget place in India! We were meant to stay for one night - stayed for six! The rooms were so super clean, great value, hot water, wifi, balcony with swinging chair, use of the fridge and Stanley was a terrific host! Almost didn't want to recommend as would love to keep it a secret! Great work Stanley - see... More

We originally stayed at Arabian soul but checked out after one night. At Mother Palace we got far more for our money. We paid 1500 rupees for an air con room. Our room (102) had a private balcony with sea views, dressing area and clean ensuite with hot water. The air con was so effective we often just used the... More

I Stayed there Feb 2012 till April 2012. Clean, central and great internet. Stanley the Host makes it feel like home. I would not pay attention too much attention to people that sign up to TA once, and make one bad review.

Nice big airy rooms that seemed to be clean. We had a nice view over looking the sea, and Stanley the owner was very nice and friendly. No hot water though as they use a solar system, so it didn't heat up. Good stay though for the budget traveller. Varkala is really beautiful. Go to Cafe Del Mar for dinner!

Absolutely horrendous stay in this hotel, worst hotel we have stayed at during our month in India and we have seen some sights! No running water for 24hours was a disaster, meaning even the toilet didn't flush! When trying to get money taken off for this, the hotel manager argued with us and was absolutely no help at all.

So enjoyed our 2 week stay here - started out as 4 nights, but Varkala and Mother Palace was too good to leave. Stanley looked after us well. Bent over back wards to be helpful, including finding a new charger for our stolen one - good to get the mobile phone working again! The rooms are not fancy, but neither... More
