“Pathetic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We had taken room in 221 and the room is not at all maintained and its Pathetic. Toilets/Bathrooms were really bad. After taking bath I found that the room is filled with water as the door step was broken. I reported to the cleaning person he just said people who stayed earlier broke the door step and thats why water is leaking. In the reception they took it very light.
We checked out and moved to another hotel in the after noon itself. Its not worth to stay for 1400Rs.

The hotel is very close to the temple. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were clean . Hot water is available from 5 am. I wish they had 24 hrs. hot water. I wanted to take a shower at 4.30am and since there was no hot water that early I had to take a cold water shower.

Hotel Ganpat is a budget hotel, nothing more, nothing less. If mediocrity concerns you, this may not be apt for your stay.

Priced at Rs. 800 / Non-AC double room, there is hardly anything you can complain about. The hotels also houses a decent restaurant at its ground floor by name Sri Baalaji Bhavan which closes at 10:30PM. When we reached, they had already closed, but was willing enough to make us some fresh juices.

Beware of the guys who ask for entry tickets while coming on car. You don't need to get tickets worth Rs. 50 for entering into hotel. If you plan to walk / take the winch to Palani hill, this is a clear saving. If you are planning to use the Rope Car, you could take the tickets as anyhow you would need it. The validity of this ticket is 24hrs.

We stayed in Hotel Ganpat for 2 days in July 2013. We took a 5-bed family room. The room was okay. I guess it was still being refurbished. The sheets were neat but a little old. Hot water was available for 24 hours.

Restraurant had minimal food options - just meals during lunch time and 4-5 items for Breakfast and Dinner. It is close to the temple and hence is a good budget stay.

We had the room for two days but no cleaning or removing garbage was done unless we asked for.

One other positive is you can call and book unlike other places where they expect you to send a DD beforehand.

The receptionist called back to check if we were coming on the day of travel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have visited second time(14-15-july-2013) for 2days with 5 adults and 2 kids family room. Room was spacious for 7 persons particularly room No.11 for just INR1600(all inclusive). Wifi was very slow and only on lounge. Room Service is excellent. Temple is 5 mts walk and for winch/cable car is 10mts. Winch cost INR10/50 and return 10/25. there is also elephant steps where u can walk through this. Old age person pls take auto for winch pay only INR30. Restaurant food is good serve upto 10pm. Little bit far from railway station/bus stand. Railway station to hotel INR60, Bus stand INR40. Trains avlbl from dindigul to palani as first option instead of bus. There are 3 trains from dindigul to palani (vis-versa). Pls check train timing before booking. we travelled at 16.30hrs train new coach. relaxed from dindigul to palani and by return 17.00hrs from palani to madurai reach at 20.00hrs. There is no advance reservation all coaches are unreserved. Travelling in a HORSE-CART is a different experience..try it out if u hv kids. same as autofare. If u choose first or second floor u hv to walk through steps and NO LIFT AVAILABLE but they likely to implement soon as most customers prefer..Overall the best hotel in palani..

Room Tip: ROOM NO.11 - 5 bed - family room.

We stayed here 2 weeks before. Got to know about this hotel through trip advisor and booked over phone. Person was co-operative and helped us booking a family room. When we reached early around 3 am, we could check in without any trouble. Room was quite clean and had hot water available 24 hours. Nice landscape and reception area. Very close to temple (5 minutes walkable). Had hastle free trip to Palani. Thanks to trip advisor
