Hotel was not neat and clean. But staff were very co-operative. As we reached night time there was no hot water supply. Rooms were filled with mosquito's. Velankanni Church is in just walkable distance.

It was my parents for whom I booked this Hotel at Velankanni. The reviews and comments that I received from my relatives who stayed there a couple of months back didn't make me have a rethink when I was about to book a room for my parents. The rooms were enough spacious and neat. The ambiance of an AC room of this Hotel was above average. (I had opted for a triple AC Room) The room service too was much more in a professional manner than those a decade back when I was a kid and stayed here. Close by to Church and beach and easily accessible is the bus station from here.

Room Tip: Make the booking via telephone and make the payment when you reach there. Remember to take the Booki...

Pros: Proximity to the church, and behind the new Morning Star church, parking space, power back-up and one average restaurant.
Cons: it was not a pleasant stay in the hotel picnic. Even AC rooms are not maintained properly. don't expect hot water anytime. the control switch for heater will be with the reception and every time you will get the answer that the geyser is out of order and you have to wait for a bucket of hot water. They have different tariff for different seasons which may be common for most of the hotels near any pilgrim places.
The hotel staff are not friendly. if asked to clean the room, they may directly deny saying it was cleaned only this morning. AC wont be working without a help of electrician. Overall, not worth for the money and the rooms maintained by the shrine are far far better than hotel picnic.
