“Just took a good look”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I did not stay at this hotel but did get shown several rooms on the property. It seemed like a tired old building that had not been kept up. The rooms were not attractive and definitely not updated. There were service panels off in each hallway we went down, and in one room. Looked like maintenance was a big problem. I would not stay at this property.

Go there only if you don't find any other alternatives. Not worth the money charged. Rooms are very small, not very clean, but the location of the hotel is good. Its Ok if you just want to stay the night or so, but not worth going for a comfortable stay.

While coming back from Rameshwaram we stayed here. The purpose was to visit Yercaud hills as well. Though little expansive for what it offers, it had a nice restaurant with friendly staff. We did not see manypeople there though. However the food was great.
The roooms were big and clean. Nice bed and linen'.
Little pricy but OK if you want to releive from the hectic tourist day.

There is nothing to recommend with this hotel. The staff are surly and unhelpful, the decor is tired, out dated and grubby, the a.c is poor, the toiletries inadequate, there is no internet connection and this is supposed to be a business hotel. The website says there is a pool but the staff said no there isn't. At checkout they tried to charge us twice and the food is awful.
I asked for a plain omlette at breakfast and was given a full on Masala omlette with chilli and green coriander - no excuses from them I was the only person in the restaurant !! Black tea came with milk and sugar and if I could award this a nil rating I would.
