“Really good for the money...”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Spacious rooms with decent wifi, en-suite bathrooms and breakfast included. Good location, a short walk down to the beach and quiet at night. Deepack the manager/owner is a really nice and genuine guy who just wants to help you have a great stay. NOTE: this hotel also owns the Skylark Hotel over the road, it basically has exactly the same standard rooms with exactly the same features and facilities, so if your room is over there when you arrive to check-in then don't worry, it's not a scam. To be fair the rooms and garden are a little tired and shabby as one reviewer pointed out, but you can't expect the ritz for what you're paying here. For this money you cannot ask for any more than you get: excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms in sherin cottage and skylark are the same so don't worry if your booking is allocated to...

I came for two days and stayed ten. Deepak is a wonderful host, the rooms are clean, large and great value for money. The beds are really comfortable. Really good value for money, with breakfast included. Have absolutely loved every minute and will come back. I travelled on my own, and met loads of lovely fun people here. Great location, peaceful and more than I ever expected.

This is a great budget choice for Varkala. A few minutes walk from the beach, its in a good location and the rooms are huge and great for the price. The staff were awesome, really friendly and helped us sort a few things for our onward travel...including a 'proper' priced rickshaw to the train station! The breakfast is included and is great, and the balcony is a good spot to meet the other guests and have a drink.

We had an awesome stay at Sherin cottage! Deepak is such a friendly guy, willing to help out with absolutely everything and the breakfast they gave us was great! Rooms are well priced, spacious and comfortable and the hotel in general has a great atmosphere. It's a small and easy walk to the beach, so if you can't afford those grand hotels straddling the cliff edges this is a great option! :)

We stayed in this bed and breakfast for a month, we were very good thanks to the kindness and courtesy of the owners. Every morning they serve a fantastic breakfast, they are always available for anything at any time.
The position of Sherin Cottage is really good, in 5 minutes you get to the beaches and restaurants, not directly on the cliff is cooler and quieter. beautiful common areas such as lounges, veranda and garden.
The rooms are spacious and clean. do not need to worry about safety because Deepak is always present.
Thanks to Sherin Cottage we spent a fantastic holiday.
If we return to Varkala will definitely return here.
Highly Recommended.

Great friendly guys running the place, they were very helpful in showing is round and helping arrange tours and travel etc. A good breakfast of eggs and toast is included. Rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Bit away from the cliffs and beach but it's an easy walk.
