One of the major hurdles we had to face every time we visited Velankani was a good, clean, slightly upmarket place to stay . . We got that at Clinton Park inn. Its not a very fancy place. But it feels like a good hotel that has good staff, clean room & things that work. They have a decent restaurant that serves good breakfast & ala chart lunch. I was happy with the service, cleanliness, quality of food and the taste All in all it was a hassle free experience for us, slightly expensive compared to other hotels in Velankanni, but definitely work the extra you pay.
Given that Velankanni is a religious pilgrimage for Christians' the expectations from a hotel in this area is low to begin with. Having said that, Clinton is one of the better hotels in this rather small village. The rooms are clean, the restaurant serves very good food, this year (2015) they have upgraded their menu to include a completely new Chettinad menu for lunch and dinner. Complimentary South Indian breakfast, and the usual toast, butter, jam, hard boiled eggs in shells are the 'Continental' choices Since there are very frequent power cuts in this area, the hotel's generator back up helps run the air conditioners, and makes the weather bearable. They have a water treatment plant, and there is soft water in all the taps. There is adequate parking, though the actual parking bays are kind of tricky to get to, the valet will help Things that needs improvement:- The rooms, especially the bedding is beginning to show their age. Bedding, definitely the sheets, bed covers definitely need to be completely changed. The bathrooms also need to be refurbished, the fittings are getting a little too ragged and dysfunctional. TV programming could improve, given the remoteness of this place, and the relative lack of entertainment for kids, some more variation in TV channels would help. Restaurant urgently needs better staff, the ones that are in there right now are sincere and try very hard, but any amount of trying cannot fix basic issues. Hygiene is an issue, cutlery and plates are work, chipped and not stored hygienically. The head steward is missing, and the other waiters run around like headless chickens when the lunch crowd comes in. The waiters simply don't have the work experience to run an establishment of this class. The food, especially during May this year is excellent, the refurbished Chettinad menu is really great, but the overall experience does not let you enjoy the food. Free WiFi is available in the lobby, and the lobby is not air conditioned. If this is extended into the rooms - that will be awesome. Right now, there is no WiFi, free or otherwise in the rooms
It is close to the railway station. It is a good hotel and even the staff were nice. They responded well to my requests. The exteriors and interiors of the hotel were good. The room was neat and clean with all amenities. There was view of the temple from the room. It was a religious trip with my friend. I had food in the hotel and it was good. The breakfast was good as well. No issues were faced during check-in and check-out. They have a swimming pool but we did not have time. We travelled by our own vehicle. The hotel is very expensive.
Clinton Inn was the right selection for so many positive reasons, not least the excellent help & hospitality of all staff. Many thanks for a lovely stay, no ask was ever too much. Awesome food and rooms were great. Special thanks for the wonderful service and accommodation. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and the staff have been excellent.
I made a trip to Velankanni in the second week of October, 2013 in my car - only me and my driver. It was a wonderful drive from Tirunelveli where I had gone on some person work from Chennai. This is not my first trip to Velankanni, though the route I took was for the first time. I had asked one of my friends in Kumbakonam to fix a good hotel for my stay in Velankanni. He fixed the place for me. It was a great stay though very brief for one night and a day . . The place (Hotel Clinton) is located not very far from the Shrine. It is on the road and the Hotel guys also stood out on the road to guide me as the entrance is not very impressive. But it is very clean and the rest of the place is quite good. They had allotted a good room overlooking the road. The room was spotlessly clean, good size, well fixed, comfortable bed, clean linen and toiletries, hot and cold running water, flat TV, etc. I enjoyed my stay after a long drive by road. Food was very good. Their in-room service was quick and good. They served Break-fast in the restaurant. The tariff included BF. It was decent, sumptuous and service was good. Looking at it I decided have my lunch also in the same hotel. Food was tasty. Probably I didn't expect it in a pilgrimage place. By any standard it was tasty, clean and good, though I may not call it very cheap. It was reasonable . The main drawback was the non-availability of any stay facility for my driver. In all hotels where I stay I have seen a tolerably alright free accommodation for the driver. It is very essential as he drives long distances frequently one after the other trips. For the travel safety it is essential. I informed the Reception staff to put it across to their management as a complaint from a customer.
