We stayed there for a night during January and it was a great place to stay. The view from the room was good and the food quality was also good. It's a good hotel within the budget and near to sea....

Some of our rooms are good and couple of them were not. So, please verify during check in. Hotel staffs are nice and friendly. Food is good and not... More

For college and office picnics, its perfect but not so great for taking family. For families, Nest will be a better option. Beach is very close but there are some rocks to be crossed to get to that sandy beach. Food was ok, For vegetarians, it is difficult as choice is very limited. Overall a hotel strictly for Budget travellers

Clean room with ok bath. Too tiny room I would say. But it had a small balcony with sea view. Nice small restaurant with limited menu. Bit on the hotter dide. Beer. Crabs. Open beach with no people. What more do you ask for a weekend? Happy

At its cost, the front floor sea facing rooms are great, airy balconies, working AC, clean washrooms & bath. Food is made to order and good. Breakfast is just manageable. Room cleanliness is a concern, one may carry own sheets as the linen is too old. But, service is great. Budget experience good for outings with friends
