Reviewed 31 December 2011

The Hotel not located close to the Main Temple and it is quite difficult to locate the hotel in the first place. The Room was spacious with a clean bathroom and nice shower but the toilet seat cover broke, the moment we tried to use it. Reception staff spoke hindi and english, which was helpful. However, they tried to charge us 1100 rupees for the dhanush kodi trip which was available just outside the hotel for 900 only. Room service is nothing great as the room service guys dont understand english or hindi. no one was answering the phone for room service and they had to send someone physically to collect the order. When the guy came, he did not even carry a pen to write down the order. Complimentary breakfast Buffet was the saving grace as it was good with ample options. Overall, an average hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a Sea View Delux Room for the best View

one of the worst hotel ever stayed in my india trip.No smile from any staff upon check in.No hot water. Never even inform upon check in about hot water. Checked in rm 202 found toilet unable to flush. Called reception and they claimed that its like that.Dissappointing and disgusting. Asked wake up call and never received one. Breakfast was late. Found hair on sugar cubes, even after telling no one did anything about it. Worst worst worst service. Its a pity to the management and the owner to employ this kind of staff. Will never ever recommend to anyone

Room Tip: Please please find another hotel.

Last weekend, we have stayed at Hotel Vinayaga at Rameswaram. It was a pleasant stay starting with:
1. Courteous and helpful staff at the Reception.
2. Well maintained and decently furnished rooms.
3. Clean and hygiene toilet, towels and bedsheets
4. Hot and Cold Water availability
5. Good food, Cleanliness and Hygiene are rare commodities at Rameswaram. Surprisingly, the vegeterian restaurant hotel is very good and hygiene, and offers some nice food (Chappathi and Lemon rice are very good).
6. Walking distance to the Railway station
7. 15 minutes walk to the temple but better to avoid walking since the streets and roads are
not maintained well.

Things to take care/Improve:
8. South Indian meals is not available in the restaurant (but that is understandable)
9. Some basic etiquette training is required for the people in the restaurant/kitchen (who
show up at reception desk)

Overall it was a very pleasant stay at Hotel Vinayaga especially after comparing with our trip in 2008.

Looking for simple and hygenic hotel in Rameshwaram,hotel Vinayaga would be a right choice.Rooms are spacious and moderately furnished.A little discomfort as food qulity was not so good &with limited choice.All the staff was considerate,responsive and quick in service except persons at reception who were appeared to be arrogant.Overall it was a nice stay.
