"Restaurant is clean and attractive. "

Posted 7 Dec, 2013

Velankanni church visit was long pending item and decided to make it in August 2013 as everyone felt comfortable. Me, my wife, our four year old 6 months old sons along with both of our parents decided to drive from Kottayam on the Xylo. Booking the room was critical being the start of season. Holiday IQ really helped in choosing the right place meeting our requirement, yes "VPN Residency". "VPN Residency" is well located in the main road to Velankanni Matha Shrine and very easy to reach. External appearance is no doubt good, looks relatively fresh building. Ample parking space as we entered and our Xylo found a comfortable place to rest. Check-in formalities were fairly simple and easy. No confusions on the advance booking, we got two numbers of three bed rooms. Its actually two bed rooms but has sufficient space to accommodate a third bed. Rooms smelled fresh and furnishings were clean in white. Clean toilets. Staff was courteous enough. Restaurant is clean and attractive. Buffet breakfast is complimentary and its very good. Al-a-carte Food was not so great considering the price. Overall I am happy about the time we spent with "VPN Residency". Velankanni is not Goa and hotel options are less if you are on a budget but not ready to compromise on hygiene. Go for it. Being a religious place, expect guests checking in and checking out round the clock resulting in some noise. Highly conscious sleepers should consider bringing ear plugs.

"Excellent stay & good facilities "

Posted 16 Nov, 2015

Had a good experience at VPN Residency, Velankanni. The room was good and liked the entire infrastructure with an added complimentary breakfast with good food. Will surely give a try here again during my next visit too. It's a bit away from the shrine, approximately a km away you would need to walk and I would say this is the best time to be there as there were no much crowd. For the hotel I will give 8/10.

"A second home away from home"

Posted 21 Oct, 2013

My stay was a religious visit to vailankani, I needed a comfortable location very near to the church, thus there was no other better place than this. Overall the hospitality was good, and we had not found any inconvenience in our stay. Since I have been visiting this place for the past 3 yrs, most of the staff are familiar to us, so it is like a second home during my stay. As for the food I have not ate outside but only at the vpn due to hygiene concerns, my advice to pilgrims or tourists is that check out the number on the hotel's website and book your room and don't eat outside, a small check is that the food expenses could be reduced a bit, that is the area which makes a slight hesitation. We have not experienced the indoor pool, because we did not have ample time for it, maybe I will check it out in my next visit.
