“Value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

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Like in all hotels the lobby and restaurant are nice but rooms are a bit outdated.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.

Room Tip: For more than 2 adults with kids take a cottage. If only a couple, a room in the main hotel is bette...

Very convenient and comfortable environment in the hotel. Friendly Staff. They accommodated us even though we reached before the check-in time. Good food available in the restaurant. Excellent experience

I have stayed here in 2013 and last week -- this is the only hotel which is comfortable and clean.
The only minus point is that it is not near the church - you need a vehicle to go to the church 0irneme

We went to vailankanni for the pilgrimage. Despite an official check-in time of 2:00 pm, having a room available and the fact that we were checking out same evening, they allowed us to check-in at 7:30 am. This made our stay so much better.
The breakfast was very good especially the variety considering what you are paying for the room.
The room was spacious and clean with a nice balcony. We ordered for food for lunch and dinner and the food was quite good,
The staff is extremely helpful. Twice they called a known auto rickshaw driver for us - once to the church and once to the Nagapattinam railway station. Passing by the other options, I got the feeling this is the best stay possible in Velankanni.

The hotel is reasonably comfortable. The bar is really poor by all standards. The cottage given to us was just ok. The restaurant offers limited options. Is also quite far from the church. For a diplomatic pilgrimage is good!

Good property, but has to be maintained properly. i have stayed for one night on 11th may 2014. i used to stay here for the last 5-6 years. backyard was good some years back but now the situation is too bad. The toiletries and towels are not good for use and at least has to be washed properly. Food is very good and staff, also very good. one of the best hotels in velankanni.
