I have been travelling to this hidden paradise for a few years now. Back when rooms cost 400 per night to now when they cost ₹4500 per night.

I have stayed at Hill View many times over the past 5 years. Staff are friendly and helpful. Sanu the manager will help you with all your needs, very customer friendly, even helped me to sort out my phone. The cleanliness is second to none. The boys who clean have the best cleaning skills even for a five star hotel.... More

We stayed in two AC deluxe rooms, next to each other which was perfect for us, à family with two teenagers. Clean and spacious rooms, comfortable beds and nice terrasses from which you see the sea and and the Green garden.... More

This is the third time we visit Varkala but the first time at Hill View. We stayed for ten days and we really enjoyed it (the teenaged daughters loved it)! We were able to sleep four family members in the room with one extra bed and no fuss. Professionell and friendly staff and always helpful. We stayed over new year... More

We stayed here for three nights @ £35 (3500R) a night including breakfast/tax for an AC room in February. The staff were cheerful and helpful, and arranged for same-day laundry @ 15R a piece and a rickshaw to the train station @ 100R. The location was perfect with numerous restaurants, small shops and yoga places within a few minutes' walk.... More

We intended to stay two nights, but at the end of five nights we were almost in tears because we did not want to leave. The hotel has a good location, rooms are quite comfortable, they recycle water, and their gardens are magnificent. The people who work there are friendly and very helpful. The view is breathtaking. Yoga classes, ayruvedic... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January, 2014, after moving from a another inferior hotel. In every way we were totally satisfied with Hill View. In particular the extremely helpful staff made our stay! The room was spotless, being serviced daily. This was a bonus, considering the reasonable rates. The location was great as well; just a couple of... More

We stayed 2 nights here after moving from another disappointing place in Varkala. It was the right move as it was one of the best places we stayed during our trip! The rooms are very clean and serviced each day (2 clean towels per person) and the staff very helpful. It was also quiet which made for a good night's... More
