“OK for Kanyakumari, but pretty average”
Reviewed 10 February 2008

This hotel was chosen for us by our travel agent. The room was basic, but adequate (although the smell of mothballs was terrible!). There weren't enough towels in the room and it took several calls to get someone to bring some more up. A lot of the staff seem quite young and inexperienced (affiliated to a hotel training school?) and the service was mediocre. Breakfast and dinner were again OK but nothing out of the ordinary - we had far better food at lunchtime in another hotel closer to the centre of town. On that point, the hotel is on the edge of Kanyakumari, but it is about 15/20 minutes walk from the beach.

The lowlight of the hotel was the swimming pool - broken chairs, no towels, no staff around. One of the better points was the roof, which could be accessed to see the famous Kanyakumari sunrise, although as you'll see from the photo it wasn't great (clearly not the hotel's fault!).

Overall it was OK, but if I was going back to Kanyakumari I would definitely look around to see if there was somewhere better and/or a bit more central.

  • Liked — It was all pretty average - no real highlights
  • Disliked — The swimming pool

The hotel has filtrhy rooms and the toilet and bathrooms are unusably dirty. The staf is very rude and inefficient; they refused to hand over a fax that was sent to me by a friend to await my arrival. How can the reglatory authority allow such a hotel to function?

We think in a place like Kanyakumari you cannot get better hotels than SINGAAR INTERNATIONAL. The hotel is very average but the small town that Kanyakumari is, the others are worse. Our rooms were pretty 3 star, having spent other nights in 5 star hotels around Kerala they did seem a little dingy. We got a good view of the Vivekananda statue and the sea from our balcony. Also the room was facing the swimming pool. To see the world famous sunrise we did not have to step out of our hotel as the best views were available from our balcony.
Special mention should be made of the dinner. There was so much variety to chose from even though there was no buffet like most hotels in Kerala. The waiter got us a lot of food and we couldn't finish it. He was very courteous and polite. I have no complaints about the hotel just the rooms could get a little better. I guess SINGAAR INTERNATIONAL is the best bet in a place like Kanyakumari.
