One of the worst hotel i have seen it my life. I cannot give anything less than1 star or it would be rated at -10 stars. The hotel manager himself is not courteous enough and behave as if he is doing a favour by giving their room. If the manager himself is not courteous and then what do you expect...

The hotel was very close to the church with ample car parking which very much served our purpose and the bus stand is on the next compound it self the church is just one minute from the hotel. so we had a great time in velankanni

the hotel is very close to church and the facilities are good for the price they are charging and they are building a new restaurant hope that place comes up well the current restaurant is very small the food is ok. the rooms are maintained to an extent but the staff are very corporative to the customers.

We have booked 2 rooms through Yatra.com. One room for 2 person and the other room for 3 person. For the room for 3 person, we had paid more. But still, in the room for 3 person, they have only given us a double bed and no extra bed. In the end, we had to pay extra charge for the...

Considering the price, i.e. Rs. 1912 for an AC room for 2 including breakfast (around the middle of January 2017), in a pilgrimage town like Valankanni, I perhaps should not have expected more. In any case here are the positives: It was very close to the shrine. The toilet was clean. The linen was relatively clean. However, there were many...

If you want a cheap and decent place to stay while visiting Velankanni this is one of the best places around. Bear in mind though that you may get get super cleanliness or super comfort. The rooms are pretty basic and are typically suited if you are staying for a couple of days with family or with a large group....
