“Worst experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

I have stayed here for one day with my family. Over all its a worst experience. I had booked for
a 4 bedded room (attached bathroom European closets). On arrival they said that there is no such room in the lodge :(.

After a long discussion with the guy in the reception I got two rooms(2 bedded)

What you like:

1. Its close to Temple.

What you dont like:

1. Hotel and surroundings stinks all the time.
2. Fan without regulator.Works only in full speed(room 111)
3. Floors in the rooms are broken in many places(room 112)
4. There is no space in bathroom.(less than 4 feet).
5. Bath room tiles are broken and always stinks
6. Waste water from next rooms bathroom came to our bathroom(This is the one I hate most)
7. No blanket provided and rooms were not cleaned.
8. Fan always making noise(Could not sleep properly)
9. Pigs and street dogs are always in front of the hotel
10.Over priced. Not value for money
11.I dont recommend this hotel for anyone even if they are providing free stay .

Room Tip: Anyone who wants to ruin their Palani trip can go and stay here.Book room no 111 and 112 if you dont...

the purpose of our visit to palani was well...to visit the palani temple. with that in perspective, we were looking for a hotel as close to the temple stairs as possible. in that respect, hotel Ganpat is an excellent choice to have. The closest one would ofcos be hotel subham (bang opposite the stairs), but shubham doesn't have rooms available mostly.

Coming to Hotel Ganpat, the staff is professional and courteous. They booked me a room over the phone without asking for an advance payment by DD ( which is/was the norm). However, enroute to palani, I got a call from them saying that the a/c room that i booked is no longer available and that they can offer me a non-a/c room only.

One can look at it in 2 ways. I chose the more positive one.

Anywise, the room was decent, nothing fancy, just ok. clean white sheets are more than enough to make me happy. restrooms were tiny and just about neat. TV had all the channels but very poor reception, hope that was a seasonal thing.

Hotel Ganpat is about half a km from the palani bus station and about 200 metres from the base of the temple steps.

i repeat, a no frills, no pain hotel

We didn't have food there, but they belong to the balaji bhavan group of establishments. a little down the road there is a balaji bhavan where you'll get typical south indian fare. quite neat for palani standards..
