Location, location, location. That's what this hotel offers.

We stayed in the Standard room for one night. During checkin, the receptionist insisted I write down the date of departure on the form. I told him one day but, he insisted I write it down myself. Weird! So I write it down, then he says "Now write down the time", which is when I threw a small fit. Otherwise, they were polite and efficient.

The sea views from the terrace are unbeatable. You can view the sunrise and sunset from here.

Our room had a view to the street which was also magical. The street below has activity at all times, and is interesting to watch.

The bathroom was very cramped. The shower did not have adequate pressure. Thank God I was here only for a night. Was glad to leave this hotel.

After a terrible experience at one of the hotels in Kovalam, Hotel Seaview at Kanyakumari was a fantastic respite. A smooth check-in, helpful staff, picturesque view from the room, clean beds and toilet with running hot water was all that we could have asked for.
On reaching Kanyakumari, we went directly to the sea-front to watch the sunset. As we checked-in after sunset, we were pleasantly surprised to see the beautifullly lit Vivekanda Rock Memorial right from our room. The staff quickly came in to set up our extra bed - making the largish room look even cozier. We ordered dinner to be served in the room. The service was quick, though the food was just about ok.

The sunrise point and the jetty (for catching ferries to VRM) were just a walk away from the hotel. After spending 4 hours from dawn to 9:30, completing all these morning activities, we had lions growling inside us. The best part of this experience was still waiting for us... we were greeted at the restaurant by a huge buffet spread with plenty of variety and very tasty food.

Hotel is located very close to the temple and the boarding point for the ferry to vivekananda memorial. The view from sea facing rooms are excellent - both vivekananda memorial and thiruvalluvar statue close and isbile nicely, plus great place for sunrise viewing.
Food in the restaurant is decent - their South Indian thali in fact one of the best we ate during our south India tour.
Cons: noise from corridor filters inside the room, place not clean enough overall including the restaurant, and the biggest issue for me was that the wc was situated very poorly in the bathroom, beyond the shower, having to walk across the wet bathroom every time.

It's located on east car street and overlooks the Vivekananda rock memorial and Thiruvalluvar statue. It's also a stone's throw from the Kumari Amman temple. The sunset point is 5 mins drive from the hotel and one can see sunrise from the sea facing rooms (or from the terrace for those who don't get sea facing rooms). The hotel provides tea on the terrace during sunrise which makes is doubly enjoyable. There are a lot of eating out options on the street in case one doesn't want to eat in the hotel.
The rooms are spacious and the sea facing ones allow one to see the sunrise from the rooms themselves. One can also open the windows to let the sea breeze waft in. For some peculiar reason, they don't have tea/coffee makers in the room. Instead, they only have a limited number of electric kettles which you can request for and will need to be lucky to get one (we had booked 4 rooms and eventually got one in all by the second day).
The restaurant has a good menu and provides a fair amount of choices. The breakfast spread is decent and one can have it for a couple of days. The table linen unfortunately isn't always very clean. They could certainly do better on that one.
The staff is generally helpful but hospitality is definitely an area of improvement in my opinion. Over the years having stayed in many hotels now, I have begun to take a pleasing personality from hotel staff for granted. That isn't the case here. A smile is hard to come by. That doesn't mean the staff is rude. Not at all. They could do well to be a little more courteous and friendly.
