We stayed here for a week in a double room. Having been travelling or a while staying in budget places this was a very pleasant surprise for the price. White walls, hot water and air conditioning. The place was really clean, we even had a duvet on the bed! The manager was very helpful. He also told us about a local hotel with a pool we could use for very cheap as the sea was so rough. Location was also perfect, close enough to the sea and shops/restaurants but also slightly secluded.

We had breakfast here a few times as well. On one occasion we asked for poached eggs (something which had not been offered to us in India) which they agreed to, after some time they sheepishly informed us that it would have to be fried or scrambled. My friend asked if she could teach them how to make poached eggs and she was allowed to assist them in the kitchen where she told me the poor woman had gone through an entire box of eggs in order to make our breakfast request.

Good and clean property

Managed by excellent staff

People working are extremely cheerful and always delighted to help.

Good deluxe rooms with no frills and neat bathroom.

Definitely recommended for extended stay at a lower price ,yet very comfortable.

However no sea view and beach is just 05 mins of walk from property.

I loved the place and stayed almost 3 times in jan and feb.

Will definitely visit again in season.

Vedanta, varkala offers best service than any other hotel at varkala. Especially the cleanness of the rooms and hotel facilities impressed me. It is also very close to the cliff. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast could'nt have been better thanks to the hotel manager who managed to provide us south indian breakfast for all three days we stayed and the menu was more than ample. The whole stay was delightful. I would recommended the hotel to anyone, first time visitors and returning tourist. I can't wait to return!
