"Good and satisfied hotel to stay"

Posted 2 Mar

I visited to this hotel in the month of December 2016. Tariff was reasonable. The destiny of the Velankanni was excellent and most I liked was sea church and swimming pool in the destination. The location of the hotel was good and neat, was near to transport facility. Appearance of the hotel look was excellent and it was decorated. Reception and staff welcome was very good. The housekeeping service was very good. I booked through online. Double bed room and hall kitchen was excellent in the hotel. Complimentary breakfast was excellent in the hotel. Activities were held at the hotel like swimming pool was good. There was Wi-Fi facility available in the hotel but not used. Expected things were available in the hotel. I will suggest this hotel to future travellers.

"A resort which does not honour it's commitment"

Posted 15 Nov, 2016

I had booked 2 AC rooms in the Sea Gate Resort at Velankanni from 12th November 2016 to 14th November 2016 and had received a mail confirmation from their Director Mr. Paul on 5th November 2016 to the effect that Two Double bed Luxury AC Rooms are Confirmed for us in Seagate Resorts on 12th november 2016 from 4 pm. In my first mail of 4th November 2016 while requesting for confirmation of reservation, I had asked the resort to provide me details for NEFT remittance towards the booking charges but the resort confirmed the booking through mail on 5th November without providing bank details for NEFT remittance. On 12th November, when we reached the resort after a tiring journey from Chennai, we were informed that there are no rooms available. When we spoke to their Director Mr, Paul he only expressed his inability to provide any rooms despite his mail confirmation. Incidentally, we were not the only family to face this situation but there was another family who also had a similar conformation but were refused room. This resort is supposed to be a award winner of HolidayIQ in 2015 but from their behaviour and our experience whether it is really one is a question. Hint: Please do not rely on their mail confirmation from the Seagate Resort lest you are made to run from pillar to post for accommodation.

"Appearance of the resort was very good"

Posted 30 Sep, 2016

My stay was in Sea Gate Resorts. The location of the resort was very good. There was nice church view from the resort. The appearance of the resort was very good internally and externally. The check-in and check-out was done on time. The staff members in the resort were helpful and friendly. The room allotted to us was maintained very well with all amenities working properly. The food served in the resort was very good in quality and taste. There were activities organised in the resort.

"Decent Resort close to the church"

Posted 14 Dec, 2015

The resort has an old block which are Ground duplex villa type, provides spacious rooms, the new block is more of a traditional hotel type but with good ambience and neat and tidy rooms. Some rooms in the old & new block give a good view of the shrine. The staff were not so great in servicing you but when you visit a busy religious place these are expected. Overall I would recommend a stay at this resort.

"New resort but still needs some improvement "

Posted 3 Jun, 2015

A new resort aside Sea Gate Hotel. The room AC had water leakage, please book online to get cheaper rates and you can bargain. Though a new resort, need more maintenance. The crew in hotel needs more training. The room is good since it is a new hotel. TV channels are only 10 and need more channels.

"Good location and big rooms"

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The hotel location was good and it was easy to find this hotel because I often stay in this hotel. The surrounding of the hotel was neat and the appearance of the hotel was good. The staff service was good and neat and the interior was well maintained. The rooms were big and neat with all the facilities and the room had a church view. They provided food it was okay and they provided both veg and non-veg. There were no delay at check-in and check-out and it was satisfied staying there. It was a family trip and there were swimming pool available. It was value for money and recommendable to other travellers. They arrange for sightseeing and there was no problem in this hotel.

"Beautiful luxury rooms, excellent location"

Posted 30 Dec, 2013

We come to Velankanni for many years but in last 3 years there is drastic change in Velankanni. There are lots of new hotels come up but either they are located outside Velankanni or if it is inside Velankanni it is very expensive. Seagate Resorts which are known for its cottages have come up with beautiful luxury rooms. We have stayed in room no 323. Excellent location and beautiful view of church from the rooms itself. Bathrooms very nice with shower curtains and jaguar fittings. Excellent rooms with good wardrobe, big dressing mirror and table, beautiful sofa set, fridge and everything is available. They have charged us only 2600/ room which is unbelievable. If this hotel is in Cochin definitely it will be 7500 at least. Great parking facility for at least 100 cars or 25 buses. Excellent swimming pool (very clean). Restaurant was also good. This resort is simply the best and incomparable.

"Nearest to the church that gives a fabulous stay"

Posted 1 Dec, 2014

Our plan was to get the most suitable and relevant religious experience with much comfort. I was with my family (My Wife and 2Kids,Father,Mother and my brother). There were several hotels available in this region. But we were looking for a hotel which was most near to the church and also doesn’t compromise on quality and service. Hence after some extensive research and studies through different travel and tourism portals finally my eye caught this one from tripadvisor. When I reached the destination I finally realized that my expectations were properly accomplished. They are offering best in class service and quality to the price we pay. Hence I would recommend this hotel to anyone who will be coming to this place looking for a fabulous stay.
