“Dirty rooms”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It appears that the hotel is capitalising on its closeness to CMC and probably they don't have a shortage of guests. The rooms are very dirty and smelly. The hotel claims to be three star, but it wouldn't meet even single star rating for cleanliness. Hot water availability is probably only for couple of hours in the morning. All the bathroom fittings are worn out. We were appalled to see the waiter wiping the cutlery with the edge of a table cloth!!

Looked okay on entering the hotel ... but the air was not pleasant and smelt hospital like. The room on the third floor was small and tight. The bed linen was not clean and had a couple of holes in it, the window air conditioner was very noisy and the floor sticky.The towel in the toilet was horrible and the toilet kit too. If you are planning to go out early in morning, be prepared to take a cold water bath. The hotel doesn't have a bar and no room service till 7.30 AM (not even coffee). Please be careful while using the elevator, the doors shut pretty fast and if you are with kids, for safety reasons allow them to board the elevator first.

HI
i had to visit an Doctor in CMC and this hotel is very close the Out patient department block.
I am sure vellore wont have many visitors had it not been for CMC,so the hotel is banking on the same.
The room was ok.The tele was of 1980 type but was in good working condition.
I was given a room on 3 floor.The price of the room for double occupancy was 2200.00 with breakfast including tax which i felt was high could have been 1500.00
I did not fuss as i had to be in the OPD by 7am.The breakfast will start only by 7.30 which i feel is very sad but it goes on till 10.30am.
The food was ok.The breakfast spread was also decent.
I would like to stay here provided they reduce their fare.....

If you hate yourself, stay at this hotel. The only advantage this hotel has that it is walking distance from CMC hospital because of which the hotel overcharges and takes advantage of this fact. after checking in i was in the hotel for precisely 4 hours. We checked out late in the night because we couldn't tolerate the filthy bed sheets and disgusting toilets, considering i had a patient with me. The television was not working, nor was the air conditioning. Considering so many patients stay here the hotel should make some effort to keep it clean for their sake. the staff is also weird and will stand shamelessly on your head, in your room for a tip.Overall unhygenic, dingy and dusty. On the other hand is GRT's hotel Sameera which is cheaper yet 50,000 times better. The distance from Sameera to the hospital is 40 bucks in an auto which i found bearable.

The whole hotel was stinking so badly.. our rooms were very dirty.. and the bed sheets smelled of urine .. We were not even able to enter the bathroom .. .. wee told them to clean it ... nd even after cleaning , the combined smell of the room freshener and the stink was extremely nauseating .. Stay away from this hotel !

The hotel is close to CMC hospital which makes it ideal for people coming to OPD from far off.
The prices are somewhat higher, but it does compensate the additional cost you incur travelling to hospital from other hotels.

The rooms were well maintained and the staff was courteous.
The breakfast is complimentary and wholesome south indian food.

Room Tip: Call and book in advance else you will find no rooms

I stayed here while doing a medical elective placement at the CMC hospital in Vellore. As a single female travelling for the first time in India I found this place safe, conveniently located and not too expensive. The room I had was a good size, clean and secure although a couple of other students mentioned some problems with staff occasionally and the odd bar of chocolate going missing! However, on the whole this is a perfectly nice place to stay.
