“Decent stay”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

An decent hotel with really big air conditioned spacious rooms . It has an attached restaurant , where we had breakfast. The breakfast choice was pretty decent. Service is very fast.
Staff were very helpful and willing . It's conveniently located and getting around was easy.
Good value for money.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and found the same a very plesant experience. The rooms are fairly big, bed pretty large, decent linen. The bathroom neat and functional, toileteries very poor, in fact, they need not keep the same. The air conditioning was superb. Room service is pretty bad, however the staff try to be helpful. TV adequate. The vegetarian restaurant is good and pretty neat. The tariff a bit on the high side for a hotel like this, however, I would not grumble too much, as the rooms,bedding and toilet are neat and clean.

I have stayed at the older version of Subhalakshmi Palace some years ago. It was just around the corner of a dark road (of course, one of the main thoroughfares of Karaikkudi). Even now, it is at the same place, and the road also exhibits the same darkness, but the hotel has undergone a remarkable renovation. Lovely facelift and renovation, definitely looks a lot neat. Kudos to the management on this front. The rooms are neat and big, as are the washrooms, but they have this old-fashioned small TV, which is out of sync with room architecture, which is modern and trendy. The hotel now is easily the best of the class, but the rates are not comparable with other budget facilities in the town. The tariff is practically some 20-25% higher than other hotels in the area, and 10% or so more than what it offers, but again they provide all this unwanted stuff like toothbrush, paste, hair oil, shampoo, soap, etc. (well, if they are serious about providing these things, they should provide for 2 pax for a double room, but only one set was provided, so this proves that it is nothing but a gimmick to justify the exorbitant tariff) and the plan is also CP. Has some parking space of 4-5 cars. The vegetarian restaurant and permit room facilities are available, which are by far the best in town. For non-vegetarian cuisine, there is a restaurant bang opposite Subhalaxmi Palace. They do not have travel services on offer, but one can contact the reception people who may then give you the contact numbers the travel services available in the town.

I didn't book any hotel in karaikudi for my stay with family and I just looked at Tripadvisor to choose this hotel. The reception staffs are not at all worth and capable enough to get the required information. The rents are very high for that city and the amenities provided, though i decided to stay in this place as not much option was available to me. The room services are very much average, the staffs are not at all trained for the hospitality. I had booked for A/C double deluxe room and the rooms are spacious, neat and clean. This is the only advantage in this hotel. You will always have complaint about switching on AC, TV etc.,. The restaurant is very much average and i didn't expect this taste and quality in place like karaikudi. Again, Wi-Fi was part of the package and they said it was not implemented though and again another disappointment. I would say good rooms with below average service and restaurant/food. I would recommend for any better hotel based on tripadvisor reviews.

The room rent is high according to the room facility. The Service is Average..! I was highly disappointed with the reception staff. NOT SATISFIED.....The Staff must be trained well about hosting the guests. Hope they ll update the stuff in the nearby future.

Sad,Sad, Sad , there is no improvement in service, a/c's leak and there is as such no room service ... house keeping is good,as they clean the room properly and its neat.

They really need to pull up their socks and do something to make the room service more efficient and get a cable connection where North side travelers and Foreigners can watch Hindi and English channels as well.....

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter and cooler

The rooms are good , only problem is that the buffet is very limited (South Indian) only. The room rent is high according to the room facility. Service is good otherwise, TV keeps disappearing in between due to network and there is no wi-fi as written in the brochure.

Overall experience ? I would say average - satisfactory , but they can improve a lot still
