the first red flag was the staff nearly ripping the bags out of our hands to race to the room. I almost mistook this for an eagerness to help until each put out their hands and wouldn't exit the room until tipped the amount they desired. Unhappy with this, we went out for the day. Upon returning and getting a... More

Kanyakumari is no more than an one-day tour destination, but we stayed there 2 nights (to have enough time to enjoy Padmanabhapuram Palace, 30 km from here). We were on the 5th floor, AC double room, so had a nice view of the ocean and the two rocks. The service was very poor. The restaurant was not attached to the... More

Kanyakumari is no more than a day outing and one doesn't require all the comforts in the world when one returns to their rooms. Basic room with average amenities. Person wakes you up for sunrise so that's nice. Nothing too special about the place.

The man at the reception was very un-cooperative, rude.Did not allow my son to use any other washroom when i was away with the keys and my son returned with my father to attend nature's call.How can an old man at a holy place behave in such inhuman manner? The worst hotel in... More

without any doubt this was the worst place we slept in Tamil Nadu. The staff was always ready to ask for a tip and never ready to help (they also knocked at our door asking for money at five in the morning). The room was not clean and the toilet was full of bugs. Quite nice the balcony

Secure and clean rooms. The housekeeping staff were extremely useful and only too happy to help us with an express overnight laundry service even though it was poor weather. Had to go to "sister hotel" to get breakfast but it was only a short walk. Would recommend this to the budget traveler.

Foreigners will have a hard time staying here with the staffs very limited english and lack of patience. While asking a question about a bus the front desk guy misunderstood and answered something completely different than the question I asked. I tried to clarify my question and asked again. And again. By this point he would say nothing but "no,... More

Don't expect much. It is a decent place. The staff are not very helpful but your basic needs are taken care of. The bathrooms are just alright. The veiw from the balcony of the A/c rooms are splendid, especially early in the morning. This hotel is ideally located between the railway station and the jetty.
