i did an online booking for 4th Nov - 6 Nov 2013. They promise too many things on the net but all fake. Please do not trust them. I travelled with my husband and 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son and my mother. I asked them for an extra dunlop for my mother they gave me one with some sort of termites which were biting and after calling them they hung the phone and kept it off hook. There is no 24 house room service or housekeeping. They were all asleep and when i approached them they were too rude. It was a horrible experience. I advice to go to the hotels next to the church. they are much better.smaller hotels are better. Kerala restaurant , in house restaurant. horrible food and no cleanliness at all. Moreover there was a man on the terrace who was shaving his private part hair, when we went to click the snap which struck us later. he was sleeping.

I have checked in the hotel on 3rd of nov and left on 5th . In these two days they never cleaned the room even once . Also the hotel staff is very rude and not cooperative . I don't recommend this hotel for family stay .

the rooms are good but not great. for the price of 1350 it is 100% recommended hotel. good parking space in front of the hotel with security. service is very good. the boys are very polite and humble which is really difficult to see in velankanni. this hotel is very close to church and railway station suitable for customers coming in train. the newly built morning star church is very close to this hotel. so i think this hotel is a good option.

Room Tip: choose rooms facing morning star church

the hotel was very good, nice and neat. staffs were very polite but the level of english knowledge was bit low. tariff is very economical compared to other hotels. restaurant was good and very cheap. we had heater, TV and ac in the room with proper power back up. no big crowd in the hotel. very peaceful atmosphere. very good location next to morning star church.

Room Tip: prefer rooms facing morning star church
