Good budget hotel

5.1/7

As a destination Karaikal is a good place. I booked this hotel directly as my friend had referred this to me. The Hotel location is good as it was in the commercial area it was close by to railway station shopping was handy. The appearance of a hotel was very good. The front office staff was very good as they were very polite and helping. The service was very good as we checked in they came and asked for any service to be done when we left out they would come and clean the room which was good. It was an official trip. All rooms were AC but they could have got a bit bigger room. There was a mess nearby which had a good food. For a budget its a good hotel.

Destination and front office staff was good

4.6/7

We Visited Kumaran Guest House in Karaikal in the month of April 2017 on an official trip along with my colleagues. I booked the AC rooms through online. The Destination was good and favorable. The hotel Location was good & easily accessible. The location was nearby to the city. The appearance was average and acceptable. The entrance of the hotel was narrow passage hence we felt that uncomfortable to move inside. The inside amenities were nice. The Front office staff warmly welcomed us and behaved friendly with the customers. The Rooms were clean tidy and well kept. The Room service was good and acceptable. We wont take food in the hotel. We had our food in another hotel. There were no fun activities arranged by the hotel. There was no facility arranged by the hotelier. We reached the location by walk from railway station because the hotel location was nearer to the railway station. Overall service was good and acceptable.

I suggest that they need to develop the parking area because it was difficult to park our vehicles. Overall it was a good experience.

Posted 28 Mar, 2017

I went to this hotel in the month of January 2017 for business purpose and it was my single visit. I would rate the destination as very good, as Karaikal beach was good in the destination. The location was average, as it was not so convenient but it was near to the railway station. Service was not so good. The appearance was average since it was not maintained neat. Reception was good and it was corporate booking. The service was good, as the food service provided was good. Room was good, as it was neat but not spacious. Food was good, and they provide complimentary breakfast but limited verity. Expected things was pick up drop, WiFi facility, verity food and activities were not available in the hotel.

Improve the exterior look

3.4/5
Posted 7 Sep, 2017

On my holiday trip I visited Karaikal. I went there along with my family in the month of April 2017. I booked it directly. The location of the hotel was near on the main road and near to the temple. The appearance of the hotel was normal in look and it was not visible from the far place. The Front Office staff were friendly. The service of the hotel was satisfied and they have served the water. We have booked the deluxe room. The room was comfortable. The bed and the blankets were kept clean. The room amenities were in good condition. There was no food facility and we took the food from the nearby food outlets. There were few activities and special facilitie in this hotel. My suggestion to the hotelier: Improve the exterior look of the hotel as well as the Front Office area. There should be an Inn-restaurant for the better service.
