I visited this hotel in the month of January 2017 for a holiday trip with family members. The destination was good since the beach was good. The location of the hotel was very good as it was located in the centre of the city and the view was good. The appearance of the hotel was very good since it was maintained well. The front office and booking was very good since they were very friendly. It was a booking through tourist. The services given by them were excellent as the staff were attentive and on time. The room provided at this hotel was very good since it was clean, comfortable bed with good facilities. Food at this hotel was excellent since they provided the complimentary breakfast. My suggestion is to provide with the north Indian foods. The overall experience was very good.
All my scepticism which existed before booking this hotel was gone once I stepped in this lovely hotel. The hotel is centrally located in the town with all sightseeing places within walking distance. It is very close to the shore and we can easily walk to the boat station for Vivekanand memorial, Kanyakumari beach, Triveni Sangam and the temple and railways station The hotel has a big nicely decorated front lobby with ample sitting space. The staff was courteous, friendly and cooperative. They have good material and pamphlets for the tourist regarding information about tourist places in and around Kanyakumari. There was not any language problem of Hindi or English which we faced a lot in Kerala Our room was spacious and clean with a sea view of the Vivekananda Memorial and Thiruvalluvar statue. I recommend the travellers to take the sea view rooms though a bit costly. At night the lighting at Vivekananda Memorial and Thiruvalluvar statue seen from the window is worth seeing. We enjoyed the breathtaking view of sunrise from our room only. This was the best stay of my whole trip of Kerala The hotel has a good multi-cuisine restaurant. The breakfast served was delicious. There are lot of authentic north Indian food and thali available in the vicinity of the hotel worth trying for I will post the Boat trip to the Memorial and other places in Kanyakumari later.
Must say that we had a very nice experience here. Goa to Bangalore is 700 km via Belgaum. We had a halt in Bangalore. Next day at 7 am we started towards Kanyakumari. We reached Kanyakumari at 5 pm evening. This hotel is very close to the beach. So we preferred to stay here nice reception and very co-operative staff there always ready to welcome you. Safe parking in ground floor. Great sunrise view from the upper floor of this hotel. Very reasonable rates and good accommodation. But food quality is below average. Very spicy food. But overall this is a very nice hotel. I have travelled from Goa to Kanyakumari by my honda city. NH 7 Highway. It was an awesome and unforgettable journey indeed.
Everything related to the hotel was better than average, however we had seen some dip in services which they say it's complimentary. Note : Complimentary service does not mean travellers are not taking it seriously. Complimentary services come with the AC deluxe sea view room package in sea view They are : Breakfast, free WiFi, 2 bottle of mineral water, complimentary pick up from Kanyakumari Railway Station Breakfast : We got breakfast (buffet), food was okay Complimentary pick up from Kanyakumari Railway Station : There was no communication from the hotel as to when I am scheduled to come to hotel, instead I contacted them for pickup from Station. I still have doubt whether they had themselves sent anybody for pickup unless I was asking for it 2 bottle of mineral water : Hotel people say it's 2 bottle per day of you stay in the hotel so 3 days I should get 6 bottles of water. Now the funny part the housekeeping guys say it's only 1 bottle per day of your stay so I should get 3 bottles of water. I do not know if two different administration running the hotel. I was shocked to see they took one bottle of complimentary water from me as bottle leakage issue and arguing with me. It was so cheap for such a hotel to fight for 3 extra bottles of water. Ultimately I managed to get 4 bottles out of 6. ( 2 less than quota and 1 more than housekeeping quota)I paid for the service however I did not get full service Free WiFi : As per only 5 hours WiFi free each day with per day new passwords, so confusing. I only was able to use total 5 hours in 3 days (15 hours should have been used). Frequent service cancellation as password getting expired. Still unable to find what 5 hours actually means, is it from getting the password from reception the clocks start then stops after 5 hours whether you use WiFi or not or total usage time (duration) 5 hours any time during a day. Total inconvenience Also I had to change to another hotel as they had no room for 4th day. While booking I clearly told them that, I can extend my stay for another couple of days Initially, I booked the hotel for 2 days, however they told there was no room available for 4th day however we can stay for 3rd day in the same room. My question here is : if somebody was staying in a room he can change his mind and extend for few more days, Isn't it hotels duty to check and confirm how many day a visitor going to extend his stay (if he/she has already given a hint). In any case any party was going to pay the same amount for the room right, whether someone new has booked or someone has to extend his stay. Again we had to pack our luggage a shift to another hotel However it's good that, travellers are more than happy if they like the place of travel then fighting for facilities in a hotel for the money paid for stay. That's why hotels are getting away with less facilities with over pricing as travellers do not want to spoil their vacation by picking up fights with the management Thanks and good luck to Sea View Hotel as they have to improve a lot on their services specially complimentary ones. I have shelled out 9450/- rs in my 3 days of stay in the hotel (AC deluxe sea facing room) and had to spoil my mood just for 60/ rs of water and erratic WiFi service.
Overall experience in the hotel was good. The hotel was located in a convenient place and has sea view from the hotel near to the Vivekananda statue and temple. Taste of food was average as it was Tamilnadu food menu. Staff service in the hotel was good and is better when we pay money to them. The appearance of the hotel was luxurious. There are no activities in the hotel. The rooms are spacious and well maintained with amenities like AC, TV and a geyser in working condition. The rooms have sunrise and sunset view. Pricing was a bit high for the hotel. Kanyakumari as a tourist destination was good. The travel desk facility was available. I travelled in my own vehicle and parking facility was available. I stayed in the hotel with my family on relaxation. My home-town is Kurnool and the mother tongue is Telugu. No suggestion from my end to the hotel management. It is recommendable to other travellers.
