For all too many years I have returned to this Guest House, first as a private traveller (its older predecessor was in the early Lonely Planet Guides) and in the last 10 years with my wife and son. Charles, the Manager, is ably assisted by long standing and devoted staff. Nothing is too much trouble - from arranging the taxi pick up at the Airport at the god awful hours most of us arrive in India, to incredible beach birthday fireworks displays for my young son, to arranging local mobile telephone cards for cheap calls home etc. The location is quiet and beside 2 great beaches minutes away. Rooms are spotless and staff honest. A la Carte breakfast from the hotel opposite is brought to your room. It may not have air con, but the fans do just well. You will not be disappointed and its prices are excellent value for what you get. Just don't book all the rooms when I travel back again next year. Bring a pair of ear plugs as although you are high away from the sea, the waves do make noise!
