In the month of November 3 friends stayed at this guest house for 2nights. Friendly staff. Most help full when we had checked out and due to the East Coast strom because of which Chennai got flooded we were drenched by rain and went back to the guest house at 1 pm requesting to give a room for 30mins to...

A very budget hotel with basic amenities. Walking distance from the beach is a saving grace. Attached restaurant ensures food availability in the same premise- though some great restaurants like Moonrakers lie within walking distance. We stayed for a night. The staff is friendly- but one has to ask for what they want. Worth trying if you're on low budget... More

It's one of those places with budget appearances and about average or do able level of cleanliness. The room was a bit dusty but the AC worked just fine. Bed was decent and hot water for shower. Served the purpose for a short stay. Decent location, walkable to the beach and the best part is that the best place to... More

This is my second time stay in Vinodhara Guest House. I got a better room this time. The room like my earlier stay was clean, spacious. The Hotel is in Othavadi street in the Foshermen's colony close to the beach. Being a budget accommodation this is a no frills property.

The place is in a nice position and that is all, though there are so many in the same area that I would never consider to go there again. We had decided to relax for two days in this beautiful little village, but we had no peace: men at work redecorating the hotel have been working since early morning to... More

We booked a Double Room with A/C and were not hoping it to be great, but at least hoped for a clean room. Room's condition was pathetic, they don't even do dusting in the rooms and you can find cobwebs everywhere in the room. Service staff is pathetic and behave as if they are doing a favor in getting you... More

Although the room was spacious, it looked shabby. There was no towel in the room and the manager didn't get it arranged despite repeated requests. Worst part was there was construction work going on right outside the room with electric drills which meant absolutely no sleep even after being tired. Request to stop the noise were not entertained. Terrible experience,... More

This small guest house is good value for money, (we paid 1,800 rupees per (double) room per night). The rooms were quite clean and spacious. The bathroom was not particularly nice (showers directly on the floor as in most budget hotels in India) but was ok and with hot water. The position is great, right in the middle of the... More
