Found this gem of a place through tripadvisor and have not been disappointed. Lovely staff, so helpful and always have a big smile on their face. The breakfast is lovely and special mention must be made of the Masala tea they make. We have had Masala tea in a number of places but none beat what the cook makes here.... More

We checked into the Greenshore, planning on staying for three nights, but had to check out after the first night when we found out that we couldn't use a credit card to pay for our stay. There was some sort of misunderstanding, which resulted in us finding other accommodations, but if you are looking for really nice rooms, in a... More

Hello Whilst I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us we do stress in e mails and online that we do not accept credit card payments, the cost of such would only have to be added to room prices. There are ATM machines and also local Money ex-changers who will be happy to provide cash on processing the credit... More

Rooms and bathrooms are very very clean, spacious and tidy. Not a single spot of dirt on them. Staff is friendly and polite. But location is not so good. One needs to walk 200 meters in order to reach actual beach. Couple of trips from beach to room will make you tired. It has no attached restaurent, one needs to... More

Hello Piyush Many thanks for your very positive review and I am glad to see you enjoyed your stay and the hotel was up to its usual high standards. I am a little perplexed at the construction you refer to, the only construction is a compound wall opposite the entrance to the hotel which in no way interferes with the... More

We spent 3 separate lots of a couple of nights here in January and wouldn't hesitate in making it a permanent base for a longer holiday in Kerala. The rooms were clean and comfortable (Indian beds are a lot firmer than British). The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We left a £1000 a week, luxury... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights. We stayed on the second floor. The place is neat, we really enjoyed the huge balcony we had to chill out in the evening. I'll probably come back. The location is perfect.

My wife and I stayed for four nights in February 2014, after making arrangements online with Ian. Ian and Lynne and all their staff were welcoming and friendly, and could not have done more to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and equipped with both fan and aircon. Bedding and towels were changed daily.... More

We were looking for friendly, clean accommodation near to the beaches and restaurants and were not disappointed in any respect. The Greenshore staff made our stay a very happy one. We were greeted at the airport by Sumi, a friendly driver arranged by the owners Ian and Lynne, and from the moment of our arrival we were made to feel... More
