“Very comfortable”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My superior a/c deluxe room was very comfortable and well-furnished, with a tidy bathroom. Everything looked very new. None of the rooms have a sea view, although my room at least had windows. The location is good: just off the main stretch of cheap hotels and shops, but still just a short 5 minute stroll down to the beach area. There is no restaurant but room service is available and there are two good hotels with restaurants on the opposite side of the road. I was very pleased that the man on reception allowed me early check-in when I arrived at around 7am.

Negative points:
(1) There was never any hot water in the shower (the main reason for my 3 star rating), which also had a very weak flow of water.
(2) Some of the bed sheets were very dirty – perhaps I untucked things that I shouldn’t have (there were lots of layers of sheets – it was the most complicated bed I’ve ever encountered!) but still, even sheets towards the mattress should not have been stained.
(3) I banged my head several times on the towel rail located above the toilet – watch out!
(4) I smelt smoke on my floor and there was also an ash tray in my room – they should make some rooms / a floor non-smoking.
(5) The toilet never seemed to stop refilling, forcing me to switch off the water flow at the wall.

The rooms are clean and comfortable espicially the 3 bedded A/C rooms. lack of restruant is made up by room service who gets food from the near hotel of the same group. ordering food through gopinivas grand is cheaper then going to nearby goup hotel . for example..fish curry costs Rs 170 if ordered from gopinivas grand but will cost you Rs 240 if taken from the neaby group hotel ( sangam group). we get a clear view of sunrise, the moment the sun gets above the sea level but the panoramic view before the sun rises is blocked by other buildings...the only irksome feature us that the staff will be after you to get the room vacated during the peak seasons....

Room Tip: choose A/c rooms...

We stayed at this hotel for a day from 11th Oct till 12th Oct 2013. The hotel is clean and well maintained. I had booked the standard non air-conditioned room. However, the room was very congested and not properly ventilated. Adding to it, the weather was very hot and humid. It would have been better if I had opted for the standard air-conditioned room.

Apart from being clean and well maintained, the most prominent advantage is its proximity to the beach. The beach is at a 600m walking distance from the Vivekananda Rock Memorial ticket counter.

The major disadvantage at this hotel is that the cable TV that the hotel provides has only 3-4 Hindi channels while the rest are Tamil channels. Secondly, the hotel doesn't have an in-house restaurant.

Room Tip: Go for an air-conditioned room depending on the weather and the time of the year when you plan to vi...

Although the hotel was easy to locate, parking was open air. Hotel didn't have restaurant but room service for food was quick. However, house keeping was totally absent. The room did not have a single window and the AC outlet pipe was left open in the bathroom; so whenever we use bathroom, had to navigate to avoid cold water dripping out of the AC!!

rooms were well maintained and clean. Overall good service from front office to food. Slightly expensive compared to the restaurants outside. Again you get the privilege to have at your own comfort inside room. Thanks Clear trip for arranging this.

Gopi nivas was the quickest to respond to my email and I made a booking.
They where promptly answering my phone calls also.
But with kanyakumari I wanted a sea facing room which they didn't had so had to opt for sea view hotel.

I liked the rooms, the arrangements, cleanliness,staff behaviour and even the large beds.
