We stayed at Kimansion for 3 days. It is a beautiful old house and the rooms are large and cool. The outer gate is kept locked but this was not a problem as there was always someone on hand to open up for us. We opted for the indian breakfast every day which was a great start to the day and consisted of various types of veg curry followed by a great big plate of fresh fruit and lots of tea and coffee. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, although the hot water was a bit hit and miss- as you learn to expect in India. Its in a good location near the beach walk and close to resurants and shops. There was a wedding on at the church hall opposite when we arrived which was quite lively but it was all quiet by about 10pm. There is also an ATM just around the corner. I had a minor medical problem and had to see a doctor during our stay. The manager arranged for me to see a specialist in the town and sorted out transport for us. He could not have been more helpful. The lounge was a nice place to while away a couple of hours with a good book or watch the world go by. Although this place is clearly not a 5 star hotel I would disagree that it felt like a hostel. It is a great, good value guest house where we were made to feel very welcome.
