For a vellankanni hotel, the toilets are impressively clean. However, it's not anything outstanding. Can not be considered a budget option. Rooms are rather expensive, but at least the aircon works. Did not test tv. I needed a room to sleep in and use the bathroom facilities. I could have found similar offering at better prices elsewhere. However, if I... More

We had been to hotel picnic with my 2 kids(3yr n 1yr old). We had taken AC double room. The room was neat and clean. The staff is friendly and the services are good. Food is pretty good. The place is at a walk able distance from church.

Rooms shabby, not well maintained, cleaned, bed linen dirty and not changed. Location shown on the map is wrong, it is located further away from the Church than what is shown on the map. It is called Picnic Country Club, whereas it is just Hotel Picnic and not worthy of calling it Country Club which is quite misleading. Country Club... More

Average Budget Hotel. Just OK as its very near to the church. Didn't try the Restarant. Try to get the room with church view.rooms in backside are new i think and they are good.on weekends always book the rooms and go other wise you will find difficult to get rooms.

There are many hotels in velankanni but we choose this hotel for the rate and hospitality. The rate was 1600 for a triple room which is very nominal. The rooms were very new and nice. Toilets were clean. There was no much crowd in the hotel. The staffs were very respectful and ready to serve us even in night time.... More

Very clean atmosphere and nice fragrance both in rooms and lobby. Bathroom was quite nice. All the staffs are good from reception till service. The only disadvantage was the wifi which was limited to lobby. Church view from back of the hotel was great. Room rates were very reasonable.They also offer a good discount. .

We had a very different stay this time. There was a lift to our surprise. There was a new deluxe block built. Rooms were nice and the toilets were clean. Service was good. Triple bed ac rooms were very nice in the new block. Morning star church view was very nice from the room.
