We stayed here for one night with our kids and booked a cottage as we were 3 adults and 2 kids.
Despite being a walk-in customer we were treated well and the receptionist worked out what would be a more economical option. We were pleasantly surprised overall. They have a small play area for kids and the room service and restaurant team were friendly.
Like in all hotels the lobby and restaurant are nice but rooms are a bit outdated. The geysers are ancient and hot water is limited. The taps etc need to be replaced also. Plenty of lizards in the rooms but the house keeping seems used to this and promptly took care of the problem. However, for those scared of lizards (like my kids) it was a nightmare at first.
On a previous visit we stayed at Clinton Inn which was a complete disaster in terms of attitude, maintenance and service, not forgetting to mention how expensive they are.
In that respect, Vailankanni residency is much better and within a very short drive to the church.
We would stay here again.
