This place is one of the few mid range hotels that has a pool, big plus! It has a great design and a perfect place to relax just off the sea front. Rooms are pleasant and clean. You can do yoga on site and even get a massage!

Behaviour of the staff, owner and the location of the hotel is very poor. All the reviews mentioned here are wrong. No room service...rude behaviour....Even mineral water was not being provided. Hopeless....

Good boarding House in basic Indian style, but rooms have a large clean working fridge, fans and A/C (also working). The rooms are clean and of a reasonable size with comfortable beds. The area inside the hotel is pleasant and the guests tend to be repeat visitors so there is a pleasant atmosphere. The furnishings do tend more to shabby...

I'm a bit surprised about the previous reviews - we really enjoyed our stay at Wilson Tourist Home. We paid R1500 a night, stayed for 6 days and got a very large room which was nicely decorated in turquoise with dark wood furniture. Our bathroom was also large and clean with plenty of hot water. We had a balcony with...

Affordable hotel in the beach location Kovalam. Payed Rs. 700 per night. The room is large, but not too well maintaned. Especially the bathroom, the fittings were rusty, and water supply was not consistent. The contact was friendly, but there was not a lot of staff around. Location is OK, the beach is very near, but there are no views....
