My previous stay in hotel picnic was not too good and thus i was keen on ensuring a better hotel. This came out to be a fairly clean and convenient place to stay. They had a all the relevant facilities including tea\coffee in the room. Food and Breakfast buffet was fairly decent. However the price is high by any standards. The premium is only due to the fact that there are not many good hotels around. This is a safe and clean place to stay.

Disappointed a bit with this Hotel.
At first you think this is nice. However you notice the clock has had the battery run out. The curtain is hanging. There is a sign on the window at the top saying DO NOT OPEN. I would be terrified to take children in these rooms. A full size window opens wide and there could be a fatal accident if anyone did open it and fall out. There really should be a safety catch in place.
The food is all South Indian with very little continental. Even breakfast. No toaster. No yogurt. In fact I could have lost weight there. Hardly anyone ate there.
No toilet roll and when I left my own out it disappeared. I had to ask for it back!
The churches are awesome and the services beautiful but what a dump Velankanni is. I will never return as I was scared of catching a disease from the open sewer down the side of the road. In fact even though we were on the 4th floor you could smell sewage in the plug hole of the wash basin. Fortunately the room had a big TV and I watched movies continually in the room. No shops except plastic souvenirs.
I am sure this rates highly as far as Velankanni hotels for pilgrims are concerned but believe me you would not otherwise go to this dirty place that insults it's tourists with the filth there. My feet would not get clean for days. My friend did not believe me but standing waiting for the bus 10 o' clock at night I had a tick jump on my ankle. I pulled it off straight away and the blood spurted out like a stuck pig. Maybe off the goats or beggars sleeping on the floor.
We were also charged almost a full days board even though we left at 9 on the night. That was almost 4000 rupees. We negotiated down to around 3000. The staff with the exception of the cheerful chap when we arrived had limited English so all in all not up to much.

Room Tip: The view from the back of the hotel was very good.

The Hotel is located on the main avenue leading to the Basilica - at a walking distance. But the rates for Deluxe rooms is pretty steep, comparable to a metro city 3 star hotel. Differential rate is charged for church facing rooms (10% extra) which is felt unwarranted. The rooms are clean. Restaurant is available. Breakfast is included in the card rate, but the service a mite slow. The corridors are not well lit especially during the day hours. Car park is limited. Other than these there are no other facilities and so the rates are considered expensive. TV is provided. But the noise from the Air conditioners in the adjacent rooms makes quite a racket, which one can feel if one switches off the A.C in his / her room. Over all an average hotel and star prices.

Room Tip: Church facing rooms are expensive by Rs. 300/_ and is not worth it.

We booked one Double bed A/c for my family. The property was very neat and clean and it is new. Bed rooms are well maintained. The only thing they need to improve the lighting in the pass way (Passage) it was quite dark even in the day time. Even in day time it is not easy to find the room no. and key hole once you come back from day light. Staffs are very good. Breakfast, it was not buffet. Very few items were offered for breakfast.
Totally hotel is good and advisable for family and individual.

Room Tip: Church view double delux a/c room
