Would definitely stay here again. Room was simple and clean. Really good location, easy to find and everything is on your doorstep. Everyone who worked here was super friendly. The attached cafe was the best part. Good food and better service!

The staff is friendly- but one has to ask for what they want. Worth trying if you're on low budget...

This is my second time stay in Vinodhara Guest House. I got a better room this time. The room like my earlier stay was clean, spacious. The Hotel is in Othavadi street in the Foshermen's colony close to the beach. Being a budget accommodation this is a no frills property.

The place is in a nice position and that is all, though there are so many in the same area that I would never consider to go there again.
