I was doing my first solo travel in 2011 and the trip to Kovalam and the hotel was very stressful. As soon as I arrived Shirley sensed my unease and worries and from then on she literally took me under her wing! She looked after me so well, kept checking up on me to make sure I was okay and even spoke to my mum when she rang!
I couldn't have asked for a better person as a host! She was so wonderful and helpful - like a mother!
The room was very nice, good location and they provide services if you need them (i.e. they arranged a car to drive me to my next location for a decent price).
I'd recommend this place to anyone - purely on how welcome and safe Shirley made me feel when I arrived all shaken up and teary on her doorstep!
Kovalam was a very nice and relaxing place.
