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
