We stayed here as 3 19yr old female backpackers for 1 night in March '13. We paid 550Rs (£6.80) for the night for a double room with an extra bed, non AC. Breakfast not included. No wifi.
Room - we had room 4 on the first floor. It was of a good size, clean and the beds were firm. Mosquito net was droopy but clean and did the job. Good locks on the door. Strong fan kept us cool. Large bathroom but no loo paper or bin. Shower was lukewarm but of a good strength.
Food - No restaurant, but lots nearby.
Service - Vivin is such a great guy. He helpfully got us a spare bed, sourced us mosquito nets and gave us good advice on where to go/eat. Really friendly and professional. The owner - Lynn - lives in London? She got our booking wrong but Vivin sorted it out in no time. Only thing is you have to bring or go and get your own scans of passports and visas - bit of a pain.
Location - Lighthouse beach is a 5 min walk through tiny backstreets. Torch needed at night.
A great place. Highly recommended if you can't afford beachfront prices.
Tip. Eat at Ayurvedic Garden next door, cheap veggie food in a lovely setting.
