Located centrally and very close to the Railway Station.The hotel arranges for Free Pick up & Drop facility.
You easily get car on rent too in the hotel premises and that too on very reasonable rate.
The hotel is undergoing rennovation for more than a year.They are yet to start their fitness centre which they claim to start every two months.
Food is good and the rooms are also get and the size of the rooms are also good although not very decent.

Probably the best hotel in Salem as there are not many. Good location and decent sized room. Service is ok and the food quality is good .Reasonably priced but getting room is quite difficult as the no of hotels are less.

This hotel is centrally located both near to Rly Stn and bus Stand. Superb Room with plesant smile from every corner, right from Room boys to Receptionists.
Breakfast is fantastic and tasteful. Quality of food is too good.
Amenties like cot/ttables and Sofa provided are good. We do get Fruits (free) at nights at request.
Service from the personnels/officials very good.
Totally we liked the hotel and the atmosphere. Would like to stay again in case a chance comes.

Remark: Travel desk is away and suggested that the same should be in the Lounge.

Our experience was mixed one. To start with the rooom cards could not be coded due to some snags...hence they let us in with master key
the room is good...TV etc are new...very clean
The staff at reception are mostly trainees...not accustomed to serve business customers.
The break fast was decent especially the south indian one
the conference hall quite big for a place like Salem
the location of the hotel is great

This is one of those old landmark hotels that everyone knows of in a small town like Salem. It has a grand entrance and lots of space in front, for parking. The rooms are very basic, but for years, there was no other choice to stay at Salem.

The service at this hotel is nothing special. It takes time for them to do anything other than the ordinary. All the staff, other than the ones at the reception, have difficulty understanding and conversing in English,

The breakfast buffet is above average. They have the regular south Indian fare, along with some basic continental fare (eggs to order, corn flakes, muffins). They have a very decent bar at the back, which looks like it could be in any city, if it weren't for the tacky lighting. Still, a very good option to drink out, as they have some of the alcoholic beverages that you would've heard of, unlike most of Tamil Nadu.

They have a conference hall which is quite cramped, and the tables and chairs are old and creaky.

Overall, a decent hotel. But I wouldn't stay here, especially with the GRT around.

Room Tip: In the new wing, that has apparently just opened up
