This is a very old property. The place is not as it looks in the pictures. I must say they have been very smart at that. I had booked the place owing to the location - which is amazing & the place - which is a little below what you can see. First of all, the rooms that were provided...

Plenty of cafes and clothing stalls...

We...

Stayed here for 4 days during a family wedding. Pros - The hotel has a very good view of Varkala Beach and the sea. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with neat and clean bathrooms.
