We stayed here for a few nights, it's fairly basic but the the staff are very friendly and helpful. No mosquito nets or top bed sheet but they have screens on the Windows. Rooms are big with good airflow and it's a five minute walk to beach/cliff area.

I enjoyed my stay at Sherin Cottage but I am only giving this place 4/5 because a few things were a bit of a miss. The rooms are very basic, they are quite clean but a little worn around the edges. Even though it is hot in Varkala make sure you bring your own sheet because I am not entirely... More

This place is great. Clean and tidy and hospitality overflowing. Five min walk from the beach and entertainment on the cliff . Breakfast is included but you can use the kitchen to cook your own meals. With the local fish market just down the road you can get the best fish, prawns and vegetables at very cheap prices. Great place... More

This place is 5 minutes walk to the sea front and as long as you don't crave the sea air in the morning this gives you all you need on a travelling budget. It was great value for money for a basic clean room with cold shower, good wifi and a simple breakfast. It's run by a friendly Nepalese guy... More

Nice location 10 min from the beach Room ok Don't go there for breackfast. Two eggs and two peaces of toast. No butter. Better pay less and go breackfast on the beach. The boss is nice. Staff ok. Very puchy to get a comment on trip advisor !! They asked 4 times. Good value anyway

Where to begin with this place. We arrived here early and the manager knew we would be. He put us in a very dirty room to wait. Our next room was cleaner but still not great. The manager who looked about 18, from Nepal was NOT at all welcoming. He seemed to not be bothered by anything, including the mess... More

I stayed at Sherin Cottage for a few days in October. Standard price 500 Rs for a private room. 5 mins walk from the beach on the cliff.
