Very nice and comfortable stay, the hotel staff was very cooperative, as I requested the cleanliness was given top priority, I'd recommend everyone this hotel. You would not get a better hotel for the price they offer, had a great time there, total value for money.

We travelled around in South Kerala and stayed at Shirleys for one night. It was a pleasant stay with a clean room, bathroom and even a small balcony. Of course you cannot expect a very luxurious room for this kind of money, but I would definitely stay here again.

Hi, This hotel is a real value for money. It's near the Kovalam beach with very neat and clean rooms. Also the the owners are very cooperative and help, can also arrange a tour package for you. They may add a little variety to their breakfast. Overall a very good experience.........

Stayed in this place for 1 night. Check-In process was smooth. Problem started once we moved to the room. There was no hot water in the room, bedsheet and towels had tears and seemed to have been used for years. There was no TV in the room though the booking site mentioned TV was available. Bed-side lamps only had the... More

The biggest plus for this small hotel is the cleanliness.Despite it being very spartan (you get what you pay for) the rooms are huge and very clean. No TV. You also get a balcony which is nice to chill out on however doesn't have any beach views. The beach is a short 3 minute walk and the location is fantastic... More

We were comfortable and relaxed at Shirley's beach hotel. It is very simple, with cold showers only, but the service was personal and polite. The space was very clean and there was a fan to cool us down if we wanted it. We had a simple but welcome breakfast delivered to our balcony, from where we could look out over... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The rooms were large enough. The service was also very prompt. The boys who attend the guests for room service were too helpful. I can remember that on one night we arrived late from the sightseeing tour and all nearby restaurants were closed. The boys came as near ones and they offered... More
