Hotel Vel's Court Palani was easy to book. They took my booking over phone without any advance payment. That was a feel good factor and a good begining. Like my other reviews, value for money and cleanliness are what I focus more on. This is what I have to say about the place:
Location: Excellent. Very close to the temple. Walkable distance from the steps, cable car and the wynch.
Appearance: Very good from outside. Nice at the reception for a hotel in Palani. Overall good.
Room: I took a family room. It smelled very bad. I could not locate the source. It could be the AC or the bathroom or something else. They were not able to do anything about it and tried some disgusting room freshener. Bathroom was not very clean. I had to talk to rception to get the AC switched on, multiple times. They dont give u the AC remote! Bedspread was clean but the blanket was not.
Room Rent: 3050/- a night is too high for such a room.
Restaurant: Bad. Food was not tasty. Utensils were not cleaned properly. I still get nightmares thinking about a spoon they gave me with my cup of tea. Yuck! Tea was also very bad. Black coffee was the only thing that tasted good there. And they charge you high for everyting there.
Parking: Available in front.
Check-in/Check-out: Smooth. No surprises. 24 hrs chkout.
