I was doing my first solo travel in 2011 and the trip to Kovalam and the hotel was very stressful. As soon as I arrived Shirley sensed my unease and worries and from then on she literally took me under her wing! She looked after me so well, kept checking up on me to make sure I was okay and...

Our room at Shirley's was very nice - clean with a balcony which gave us a great place to sit and relax in the mornings an evenings. Location also perfect. Shirley and her son went out of their way to make us feel at home; they helped us find a hotel for our next stop and booked it for us...

Shirely came to pick us up from the airport at 3.30am, which says all you need to know about the quality of service. As the price was much lower than others in the area, we were not expecting much - but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was huge, and spotlessly clean with a balcony. Only a few minutes walk...

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Shirley's Beach Hotel for 8 weeks from January until March. The hotel is a budget hotel but has a huge heart with the proprietor Shirley and her son Sambath looking after us better than a mother, pandering to our every need and want. I can only describe the place as...

Shirley's Beach hotel is great value. Shirley and son Sambath will go the extra mile --Sambath met our 3:45 am flight into Trivandrum--they are also great with advice, tours, etc. The hotel is very simple, but for a budget hotel the location is very convenient to the beach. It is great value in that it is safe, clean, quiet and...

To be honest I could write pages about my stay with Shirley at her run-down 'hotel' but I think straight to the point sentences would do the job just fine... At 3am one morning after suffering from jet-lag I noticed a torch being shone through our window which our bed was right up against. I panicked and thought that someone...

I spent five nights at Shirley's guest house. And I was more than happy I had chosen her place at home (internet booking, so you never really know what to expect). One person above wrote about how horrible it was. Well, I suppose he/she had never travelled around in India before! Of course a guest house there is not the...
