We booked two rooms. I had a very bad experience at The Gateway Hotel at Varkala so I was very skeptical about this property, but once we reached there, the feeling was good. The hotel is on hill. Very good view. Rooms, lobby and restaurant are at different level so be prepared to climb up and down if you are going to stay here. We were offered two rooms one up and other was below it. Room on lower level was nice and spacious. They were newly done. We opted for two single bed which were comfortable. There were two split air condition in room. Bathroom was also very nice and large. Restaurant is quite far from the room so you have to walk all the way down or order meal in your room. In restaurant Buffett dinner was not very appealing so we ordered for South Indian thali. Food was not so good, little spicy, it needs to be improved further. Since we were leaving early morning so hotel manager was kind to pack some breakfast for us. Again the quality of breakfast specially idly, sambar and chutney needs to be improved and it must be similar to the typically South Indian taste that your get in that state. Morning coffee was not as per the standard. Overall it was a good stay.
