We stayed for two nights in the second floor large room with small outside space. Room was worn but good sense of space and clean. Views to the sea through the trees and the cafe which is a bonus in Varkala. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Only problem was that at night there was a loud noise coming from the roof area above us. This started about 2am both nights and went on for hours. Even with ear plugs we could still hear it. We did tell the staff and there was speculations as to its source but we never found out what it was. In hindsight we should have asked to change rooms. Shame as the room was large, airy, fairly priced and in a nice position.
