I've visited this place twice in the same year and my experience has been mixed. Pros: Price was affordable in the white town 180 degrees Sea view as opposed to 360 degrees (Note: You will get sea view ONLY in the deluxe room) Very walkable to the beach and located in the heart of white town Cons: Poorly maintained.

This place is good and is very near to beach. Its not exactly sea facing, but you can have sea view if your in second floor (Main entrance side room). Please note the adjutant building is Ajantha Sea View Hotel which is the exact sea facing one. So dont get confused with the names. This is a decent stay for... More

Booking thorough phone was good experience. we reached evening in evening at hotel, room was cleaned properly and required necessary things were at their places. Room was specious. Hotel is on the rock beach itself; just crossed the road, you will get access to beach. one star removed, due to food. Hotel doesn't have any own restaurant,

Nice view of the sea. Very close to the beach & market. Near to Ashram & Manukula vinayager temple. Clean rooms with AC, hot water, beverages etc. Small compact rooms for a family of 4. Parking facility is the only concern. Need to park your vehicle in the road.

the accommodation was not at all good. service was poor. the location of the hotel is really nice in front of the rock beach. there is mis-management between the clear trip and the hotel. i didn't get the rooms according to the saying of cleartrip. even the managers were not responding properly.

Good view from balcony, AC and TV was functioning fine. Neat and clean room and bathroom. The cupboard is weirdly narrow though 😄. Overall good place to stay for budget conscious. Got to see sunrise as beach is bare 20m away. Doesn't have parking though, but parked along the lane next to the hotel, nothing happened to my car, so... More

Ajantha is a great place to stay, if you want a room of your own - nice and clean, great wi-fi, staff is ok in Indian standard and the location is perfect; only ten meters to the Beach Boulevard and the whole city is very well reachable. Nice restaurants and cafes nearby. Good choice and price was 1250rps/night for solo... More
