Diwali night, and saw this hotel and restaurant. Seeing as our hotel said it was okay, we thought we'd try it. Got in, ordered and got our drinks, then a group of around 8 or 10 people arrived, a good 15 minutes after we had ordered, so imagine our surprise when their starters came. No problem, we had a look... More

Rock Holm Excellent location Just on the way to beach Nearby market Room overlooking sea Average food Walkable distance from beach It also has a Private beach cut off from the main beach. Very Basic rooms still neat n clean Has a common room to sit near reception It's a budget hotel with great views.

The position is amazing, had Room 10 in the old part which overlooked the rocks, went to sleep like a baby each night to the sounds of crashing waves. In fact, couldn't wait to get back to my room each night to sit on the balcony and watch the sea. The staff are terribly sweet and did their utmost to... More

Poor old hotel is a bit shabby but the location is fabulous! The locks on the doors were good, old but good. I felt reasonably safe here given the rape situation in India. Always a concern for white women travelling alone. I loved the Arabian Sea crashing on the rocks below my room. There's not a whole lot to do... More

I have first to confess that we haven't stayed at the Rockholm but in rooms right next to it but have been coming for breakfast, lunch or dinner on its terrifically located terrace for ten years now on and off. No-one could fail to be impressed by its location. In bustling Kovalam, the Rockholm is a peaceful sanctuary tucked away... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Rockholm and as before, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We stayed for 6 days and didn't want to leave. The hotel location is great overlooking the rocks and beach, the room was clean and food in the restaurant excellent. The hotel arranged transfers for us and everything worked perfectly.
