We stayed for 3 nights at magnolia guesthouse.Must say it was a very relaxing stay here.We stayed with our kid of 8 months and the staff was super helpful.
The location of this place is also very great and you can just sit out on back patio and enjoy the sea views.The rooms are spacious, well maintained and clean.

They also have an restaurant which servers good food.All in all we loved our stay here. Special thanks to the team for taking care of our baby needs.Would love to come back again.

We just stayed for 3 nights at Magnolia Guest House, from the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Sha and George! The rooms are spacious, bright and cheery and spotless with lovely bathrooms. It also has a great little pool which is wonderful after a day out or at the beach. The restaurant served wonderful breakfasts, all freshly cooked to order and served by lovely staff! The guest house is about 5/10mins in a tuk tuk ( there’s always one around) to Varkala Cliff which is full of great shopping and restaurants and only a minutes walk to the beach. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to come back! Thank you so much!!!

15 mins down from Varkala Cliff, the Magnolia is relaxed and chilled - away from traveller central up the hill. Excellent spacious rooms, fab pool, good breakfasts and really friendly staff. Seconds from the beaches and restaurants. Thanks Ameersha and co. for super stay.

This property is marvellous for several reasons :
* very close to a nice beach. Contrary to the cliff, you don't have to walk a lot of stairs. Quiet and relaxing beach
* very nice pool, clean and sunny
* staff super friendly. I intended to cook for my kids. they provided me everything to do so and helped me.
* good restaurant : I cooked twice, but the restaurant was so good I ended up ordering food at restaurant. Fresh fish cooked with butter lemon garlic. Delicious ! Breakfast also very good.
* Accomodation was beautiful, lot of space, nice terrasse, perfectly clean, beautiful surroundings, garden with hamocs. 2 bedrooms were cleaned every day.
* Staff helpful with rickshaw or cab booking, at a good price.
* minimarket and nice shop with beautiful clothes and jewellry next to the hotel
* I have been in more than 30 hostels in India and magnolia is the best quality / value proposal I have found.

Room tip: to what I have seen all rooms are nice. cottage or very smal building nicely decorated.

Booked via Booking.com and we made several changes prior to arriving- the staff at the hotel were extremely accommodating and happy to assist wherever possible. They organised a car pick up from the airport- he was great, especially considering our luggage came out last! (Very considerate driver)

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and always on hand with answers to any questions. Food was always cooked fresh ( which sometimes took time) but well worth any wait - still dreaming about their fish fry!

The owner and manager were fantastic at every opportunity- friendly, professional and helpful!

The guesthouse is a little way (5-7mins by auto), from Varkala beach and the Helipad - but George is on hand to get reliable auto drivers - and he’s good a negotiating a great rate.

The rooms in the main building nearer the pool and with ocean views are the nicest.

Really enjoyed our stay and would go back, what’s more to say...
