This was the first time I've been able to stay in this place for a few years as it has always been full - so if you want a room, especially sea facing, then I recommend booking ahead, and certainly during the busy December/January months. I had stayed at a few others before chancing on this and it is by... More

Amazing place with an awesome beach and mahabalipuram temple views from the rooftop restaurant. And the food is lip smacking.Not too expensive like the nearby places.. This place is a real deal for all sea food lovers.

Fantastic location on the beach with great balconies so you can watch the fishermen working with their nets or the cows strolling by. The cafe above is good for a cheap bite and a beer, good restaurants along the beach too. The main shopping street is very close by, as is the shore temple. The Five Rathas and the Butterball...

Simple rooms, with hot water,but the ones with sea views are great with wonderful views of the sea. We had a private balcony where we could sit and watch the cows, fishermen and goings on on the beach. Highly recommended. Will be returning for sure

Chennai is something to live, but mahabs is home. Sri Harul is a nice slice. The area is good and off tge main path. But a short walk to the main shopping area. If warm blooded, the ac room, or no sea view rooms as they are much cooler at night

Sri Harul guesthouse is quite lovley. Unlike most Indian guesthouse it has a bit of art on the walls for some extra character! The balcony rooms are gorgeous and my partner and I spent most of our time there just relaxing and enjoying the ocean's roar. Sri Harul is one of those guest houses where we didn't mind spending more... More

I spent a pleasant time here. Rooms are ok for the price. if possible get one with balcony, facing the sea - beautiful! same with the rooftop restaurant. but I have to be honest - the best view doesn't include the best food. often not so tasty, the meals seemed to be a varity of whats left in the kitchen...

Our first night was spend in a room that wasn’t facing the sea, I do not advise staying in these rooms, they are dark and grotty and not really worth the money. On the second night we moved to a room facing the sea with balcony, this was infinitely better and would recommend these rooms. The staff weren’t very friendly... More

Loved my stay here. Spacious basic clean rooms with balcony overlooking the action on the beach. Good value would definitely stay here again. Restaurant on roof but like all restaurants around overpriced best food is 10 min walk in town where locals go.
