The place was very nice. Short stroll to the beach, the guy working there was nice and helpful. Nothing amazing but if you're looking for a good, clean reliable apartment near the beach then this is a very good option. Internet wasn't wonderful but other than that we had no complaints.

Had a good two nights stay at this family run lodging. Rooms are generously spacious and clean. Beds are really good quality ensuring sleep comfort. Staff is courteous but at times room-service is tad slow-may be because unlike big hotels where things are readymade they make everything fresh on order. Food is decent and value for money. Only grudge being... More

The place is nice, rooms are comfortable and clean. Lynn is a sweetheart, shame we did not have quality time to share, and Ian is a nice man though little carefree. The assistants were very caring and they are very good people. we were in a group and they were very attentive of our needs. Yet the breakfast service, that... More

I had the pleasure of spending a few days at the Greenshore Appartments on a recent visit to Kovalam. The room was clean, cool and homely. Every amenity was as described, with a kettle, fridge, hot water and wifi that really worked well. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Ian and Lynn Knox, two English expats who have... More

I stayed with my wife and daughter at the Greenshore apartment - we were there for three weeks, and they took very good care of us. Whenever we had a problem or a question they were very helpful and gave us lots of tips about what to see and where to go.

Our 2nd stay. Very well run and secure, great location, near to everything you need if you're good with hills. Good sized rooms & balconies with very effective a/c. Great to meet the very friendly owners Ian and Lynne this time, and to sample Lynne's lemon drizzle cake. They are on hand for tips and advice if you need it... More

Enjoyed my stay here. Room cleaned daily and was spotless. Felt safe (travelling alone). Comfy bed. Manager is very helpful. Will stay again. Good location but you do need to be able to climb a bit of a hill and a couple of flights of stairs.

The Greenshore apartments are the Ronseal of stays - it does what it says on the tin. Its an unpretentious, clean and friendly place to stay. The owners are Lynne and Ian who make an effort to make their guests feel welcome and judging by the amount of people who return, they seem to be succeeding. My partner and I... More
