The rooms were nice and triple A/C room was Rs.1600 which was very compatible rate. Hotel was very close to velankanni church and railway station. Since our train was at 4pm we were given extra time of 2 hours in the room for no charges. The room staffs were very nicely doing their service. The restaurant was ok. This hotel... More

I think the bathrooms have been newly done. The staffs were very courteous and obliging but lacked English knowledge which... More

We took 5 Non-AC rooms which were booked in advance and we didn’t have much issue lodging. Though the rooms are not very new but for one or two day stay... More
