About a kilometer to the rock beach, straight on the Lal Bahadur Shastri Road. Room s are clean. You can have good sleep as there is no traffic noise. For food, you have to walk... More

All staffs were very friendly and ready to assist. the charges are quite cheap compared to other places 900 Rs for a single and 1200 Rs for double.. rooms are ok if you spend most of the time going round...I would have marked very good had the rooms been more cleaner and clean sheets.
