    Great place to stay at”

    This is a wonderful place to stay at. The resort is just by the beach and close to the several restaurants, shops, massage centres, other beaches, etc. The staff members were very friendly, helpful and hospitable, including the manager himself. Our return train tickets did not get confirmed and we had to book a bus, which was 5 hours later, meaning we had to extend our stay and the staff gladly allowed us to do so, without charging us any money for the extra hours or making us move from the two rooms that we booked, to one room. We will definitely stay at Woodhouse Beach resort again.

    Not value for money”

    I booked the cottage because I was getting a very good discount. However, at INR 4000 the cottage is quite basic and needs to be better kept. I was hoping for a fancier room at INR 4000. While the room was clean, the AC and lights were not working properly. However, the staff is really polite and friendly. I got the feeling that things were slow because of off season.

    Great location. Nice value for money. Needs to improve on cleanliness in the room. Not ideal massage service place. So pick wisely.

    Great spot by the sea ”

    This hotel is in a great location at the end of the stretch of restaurant, hotels and shops on the Varkala cliffs. It's easy to go out for a nice dinner but is really quiet as it's just tucked away. We stayed in the standard room which is a good size and arguably has a better sea view from the balcony then the wooden cottages. If you want to go to a quiet spot there is a small, clean bay a minutes walk to the right. The manager is very friendly and willing to help. The hot water is dependent on the solar panels so as long as it's sunny you have hot water. On a cloudy day the staff brought us buckets of hot water.

    One day trip”

    We stayed at a standard room, not the cottage. It has a balcony and we can see the sea through the coconut trees. Sea is just few metres away. Room is small with very basic things like wardrobe, chair and table. A/C wasn’t working. The bathroom was clean enough. The complimentary breakfast has just bread, cornflakes, and one kerala dish - Appam and egg roast, fruit juice. Reasonable for the price I paid.

    It’s at the end of the busy strip and a little bit tucked away. The place was clean and lovely. The breakfast staff was friendly and the food was good. I liked the patios to sit on in the afternoon while reading and listening to the waves.

    You Could Do Better”

    Guest house is ok, but not particularly good value for money. Very close to the beach (rocks), however, so are countless other places in Varkala, and a lot of them work out much cheaper for similar, or even better, facilities. Noisy, uncontrollable a/c - not really needed at night, and just as well. Breakfast - toast and jam - who wants that sort of stuff on a visit to India?

    Quite a good choice for the money you spend. The private cottages are situated right on the edgeof the cliff and you can hear the sea roar beneath you. Rooms are tidy. The staffs are excellent.

    2 days stay in woodhouse resort.”

    I booked independent cottage but instead manager provided me other room due to unavailability. however new room was on first floor and well maintained. Room was clean and spacious for 3 person. View from cafeteria was best. This place is near to black beach a small isolated beach and at walking distance from helipad which is the highest point of cliff. Staff was nice. Eating options are very limited but Sanjeev G (kitcen owner) have some really good recipes in hand. Over all good experience with woodhouse.

    Arrived at 8.30pm ,wouldn't let us in”

    Location, Location,Location

    Arrived at around 8.30 pm and the night watchman refused to let us in as he was eating. After roughly 10 mins he reluctantly let us in and the manager was sent for. Our booking was for 9 nights staying in a bungalow. We were told our booking was for 2 nights and we were not expected till the next day. After a heated debate we finally had to accept our first night in the hotel transferring to a bungalow the following day, all this even though we had booked several months previously. No one seemed interested in the well being of any of the guests unless the guest asked for something, in fact I would say instead of an organised team running this resort it just seemed to have a caretaker or temporary staff .We were there 9 nights but only had 3 hot showers. Saying all this but in fact the location of the resort was absolutely fantastic and you did get the service if you asked for it.
