"Terrible hotel"

2.2/7
Posted 8 Sep, 2016

Booked a room for me and my wife for 2 days at this hotel. At the time of check-in,had to wait at lobby for almost half-an-hour as they were cleaning the room. Staffs were not friendly. We were disappointed to see the room. Room was in pathetic condition. Cockroaches could be found in the room. One window had no glass and mosquitoes were entering the room. When asked for another room, response of the staff was not at all friendly. We could not find even a phone in room to contact reception. TV was also of pathetic condition. Picture was not clear and the number of channels was limited. Eventhough we paid for breakfast in advance, they charged for it separately. Friends, please avoid such a hotel in pathetic conditions as it will surely spoil your trip.

"Behaviour of the staff’s was good"

5.6/7
Posted 1 Mar, 2016

The garden was not available at the hotel. The hotel was located in the centre of the city. I had visited this hotel with my friends for relaxation purpose. Beach was nearby the hotel. The check in and checkout process was done on time. The behaviour of the staff’s was good at the hotel. The activity was not arranged by the hotel. The room given to me was good condition. All basic amenities were provided in the room. I would not suggest anything to this hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

"Very good room service but food was not that good"

5.5/7
Posted 24 Aug, 2015

The room was very good. Food and other facilities were not that good. They were a bit costly. The reception was very welcoming. Timing of the food supplied needs to be extended. The room service was not upto the mark. The location of the hotel seems to be a bit far away from the beach. Overall, it was a good stay.

The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition and but as it was raining the A/C was not working. I ate non vegetarian food in the hotel and the food was good in taste and quality and the price was reasonable. There were no activities in the hotel.

"Convenient room and well maintained"

5.4/7
Posted 1 Aug, 2015

Location of the hotel was little distance and out scats from the beach. Appearance of the hotel was well maintained and neat. It was easy while booking and there was no delay during check-in and check-out process conveniently. The service was done on time and staffs were responsive. The room allotted was comfortable and spacious with hot water facility. We booked for A.C room and the amenities were in working condition. The rest room was also neat and clean but the window at wash room was not fine. It is not good for women’s. We did not eat food from the hotel. I had been with my family for relaxation purpose last year November.

"Superb service of staff with well manner and good food"

6.4/7
Posted 3 Feb, 2015

I travelled to Pondicherry and stayed in this hotel Palaniswami. The hotel was conveniently located and it was close to bus stand. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. The staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly in the service, and they were quick in service. The room allotted to me was good and well maintained, and except TV and geyser all other required amenities were in working condition but there was no view. They used to clean the room regularly. I ate food in this hotel and they serve as per our expectation, there was a bar in the roof of the hotel and even over there, they serve the food. The food was in good quality, quantity and reasonable too. There were no pool and activities facilities in this hotel. The stay in this hotel was worth paid.

"It was a cheap and best hotel with good service "

5.3/7
Posted 19 Jan, 2015

I travelled to Pondicherry and stayed in the hotel Palani swami. The hotel was conveniently located within the city and it was close to beach and Railway Station. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and cooperative but the manpower was less due to some strike. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The interior and exterior of the hotel was excellent and it cheap and best. The room allotted to me was well maintained and it was very comfortable, and even they provided all required amenities in working condition. I had food in the hotel but I did not like the taste even though it was in reasonable price. There were some activities organised by the management. They provided bike for sightseeing and that was very useful to us. The destination was superb and even the stay in the hotel was worthy. I have already recommended to my friends.

"Too costly hotel for the kind of facility provided"

4.1/7
Posted 10 Sep, 2014

I checked in the hotel with my son through an auto driver who escorted us to the hotel. I came to Pondicherry for a site seeking visit with my son. The hotel looked good from outside and I was told by auto driver that the AC room rent will be around Rs. 1500 per day. When we checked in the receptionist (male person) said the room rent will be Rs. 1800/- per day, however we settled for Rs. 1600/- per day. I was expecting a good room all kind of facilities. I saw the bed cover and blanket of the room has been damaged and the pillow cover is dirty. I told the receptionist to change all these. However only pillow cover was changed after almost 2 hours of waiting and the blankets and bed cover was not changes until we left the hotel with a silly reasoning that alternative is not available in hotel. There was no provision of drinking water in the room. The room service was in shambles. The bathroom did not have provision of shower and hot water facility. There was no washing soap in the bath room and the roof of the bath room was in precarious condition. The generator of the hotel was not attached to the AC and TV of the room. During power cut, the life will be horrible. The room and the services of the hotel were not at all worth the price. I would advise travellers to see the room and be assured about the facilities to be provided by the hotel before booking. I would like to see rooms to be cleaned properly, the bathrooms to be better maintained with hot water facility, roof maintained properly, shower working with sufficient amount of water flow from it, availability of washing shop, power connection at least to TV during power cut, clean bed covers with better quality of blankets, good pillows and better room service. It all these facilities will be provided, the room will be worth Rs. 1500/- per day but with the one's I stayed the room will be worth around Rs. 600-800 /- per day.

"The hotel was good but not well-maintained "

5.0/7
Posted 23 Jan, 2015

My overall experience in this hotel was good and I did not face any problem. I visited for religious purpose with my family in the year 2012. The location of the hotel was convenient to locate and it was close to bus stand. The behaviour of the staff in the hotel was helpful and friendly. The room allotted to me was nice but it was not so well maintained, they provided all required amenities in working condition. I had food in the hotel restaurant and it was in good taste, quantity and reasonable too. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. They did not organised for activities in the hotel. The stay in the hotel was valued to money.

"Good stay with well-maintained room"

7.0/7
Posted 14 Jan, 2015

I had a good stay in this Hotel Palaniswamy, but when we travelled before New Year with friends, they told no room. But somehow we got and it was one night stay in this hotel. The hotel was very convenient to travel. Its surrounding was good and no issues with any of it. They provided our entire request on time without telling no. The staff really helped in our vacation. They did not delay in check-in and check-out. The room allotted to us was good, it was available as we expected. They maintained the room well with all amenities in working condition. The staff ensured to clean the room regularly. I ate non-veg food in the hotel restaurant with reasonable price in good quality. There were no any activities available or sightseeing trips organised by the management.
