Best hotel we have stayed in since arriving in india 3 months ago! The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much to ask! We arrived in the off season so the restuarant was closed. However they opened it up especially for us. The food was the best food we had eaten in india. The chef was amazing and asked us what we wanted to eat and would make it for us even if it wasnt on the menu. It is very very cheap! A curry is about 45 rps!! We had a incredible and huge thali for only 50 rps!
Our room was beautiful and very clean. It had a lovely balcony which was nice to sit out on in the mornings in the sun. We planned to stay 3 nights but extended it to 5 as it was so lovely.
Its location is about 5 to 10 min walk from the main strip of bars and restuarants but saves you about 1000 rps by staying here. Location was perfect for us as its quiet and nice walk up every day. Close to the beach and 10 min walk from the main black beach.
I would highly recommend this olace especially for budget travellers! We have stayed in awful places for 600 rps but this room was one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in so far for only 350 rps!
