Satisfied hotel & all facility was good.

4.8/7
Posted 16 Oct, 2017

In the month of December 2016 I visited Rameshwaram with my family for holiday trip to that hotel. My native place is Chennai. Rameshwaram was very nice place & it was good in sightseeing. Hotel location was very near to temples & was very easy to access t the hotel. The ambience was not much good & it was not good in management. The reception was good and cooperative & was very calm in receiving us. Service was good in serving us & prompt in serving us at the hotel. Rooms were not good in accommodation & not good in amenities & not spacious. The food we had chapati & it was very nice & complimentary food was good. No activity was available & no WiFi facility was there. No travel desk for us was there. I booked our stay in the hotel directly by visiting there. It was good hotel & satisfied to stay & relax.

Very good rooms and average service

5.5/7
Posted 24 Feb, 2017

I had been to Rameshwaram during the month of January 2017. It was my holiday trip with family for temple visit. The destination was excellent, I visited just temple hence I could not visit much places. The hotel location was very good as it was close to temple; the best way to reach this place is by share auto. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as excellent as the outer appearance was good looking but interior was not neat. The front office was good as they good while check in and checkout facility. The room allotted to me was excellent as they were neat and clean and well spacious with double cot. The service was average as they were not on time they made us wait. I did not eat food at this hotel as they did not have restaurant facility.

Horrible experience at midnight

1.6/7
Posted 4 Jan, 2017

I booked a room in this hotel at Rs100/- premium at Rs. 800/- for non AC triple bed room with sea view 1 month in advance for two days 27-29 December. 16 and also sent them Rs. 1000/- towards advance Thereafter I had been in contact with the owner through What's App quite regularly even enroute to Rameswaram from Madurai on the date of arrival Even then the owner kept me waiting for the room for an hour in the lobby where there was only two chairs and the time was around 11 pm. When insisted to hand over the room as my small child was falling asleep, they ultimately gave us a room as booked, but to utter surprise we found the room was completely devastated in the evening thunderstorm and heavy shower. There was water everywhere on the floor and the mattress was very much wet. The room was really in a very bad shape and poorly maintained or even never maintained at all The toilet was so dirty and was having only a zero power dim light. Room does not have any wash basin. The headboard of the bed was having torn padding. The mattresses were with holes from someone's cigarette. The bed sheets were stains with either Rust or blood stains. The lift was so poorly maintained that it had heavy cobwebs everywhere inside the cart. That too got stuck when was running on generator. We had been trapped inside with our little baby for more than 10 minutes in a suffocating condition even after refusing to go by lift and had to travel upon their insistence They were unable to provide a few dry pillows and a few clean bed sheet and mattresses Finally they decided to shift us to their upcoming property on the other side of the temple and we had to walk down there through dirty broken lanes with overflowing sewer lines in complete darkness. Upon arrival to their new property called New Island Star, there was sleeping staff who did not wish to provide us room and refused to start genset. The owner did not pick up his phone at that odd hour when we were in a extremely critical situation with our child had fallen asleep out of exhaustion as it was then around 1: 30 at night We decided to go back to the older property as there was atleast light and fan, and at that time, electricity resumed and we stayed there in the New Island Star, but after checking-in light went off again and I had to guide the hotel staff in starting the genset.

I visited the hotel in October. It was a family trip. The overall experience was very good. Place was very good. The hotel location was excellent. The hotel room facility was not good. Interiors were not clean. Front office was very good. The overall services were very good. Room was good. We taste the food there. There was no WiFi facility and other activities. They should keep the room clean and tidy. And ventilation was not good. I booked the hotel directly.

Overall average

3.6/5
Posted 19 Nov, 2013

I had book this hotel during our my visit to Rameshwaram in October-2013. Auto rickshaw guy took us to this hotel after we found other 2-3 hotels nearby full. I would say, the hotel looks very good while you enter but this impression didn't last longer. It was about 5:30 A. M one of the hotel attendant took us to show the room available, we had already visited 3-4 hotel all were full so I though to book the room. I would give average rating to this hotel Check-in was quick. The double bed rooms for Rs. 500 was in just surviving status. We managed to get room on 3rd floor as that was only room available. TV in the room had no power, looking at the condition of the TV I didn't thought even once to switch it on. Curtains on windows were just a cloth tied to cover the windows without doors. Lift was there and I see it in working only 2-3 times other time there was no power in the lift. Food is served in the hotel which they buy from a restaurant which is near the Ramanathaswamy temple but I would strictly recommend to go out and have found in some good restaurant Most of the hotels around temple were in same status so I would recommend this hotel if you are fine to stay in the hotel after Reading my review and you don't want to spend much and not looking to stay overnight Only thing I liked about this hotel was its location, it's just 100-1500 meters from Ramanathaswamy temple entrance. Rameshwaram is a very small place so mostly hotels are near to the temple.

Good housekeeping; tasty food

4.6/5
Posted 19 Aug, 2014

It was an excellent trip, it is a calm area and parking space was available. During our stay hotel staff were very courteous and their service was good and good housekeeping services. They provided campfire and they provided vehicle arrangement for sightseeing, but we went with our own vehicle and they guided us . . The room was good, it was so spacious and the furniture was too good has an AC, TV, fan, fridge and geyser facility in the room. They provided kitchen because this is a home stay hotel, we can order food or we can prepare for ourselves, but we ordered food, they had prepared veg and non-veg food varieties. The food quality and taste was good. They provided 12 to 12 hours check-in and check-out facility and there was no problem with payment. In coffee plantation it is an individual house type with two bedrooms, kitchen and dining room. It is good to stay and recommendable for other visitors.
