Low than average. Worst !!!

2.4/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

I visited Karaikal in the month of May 2017 on a business trip. Kumaran guest house assistants booked an AC room in Kumaran Guest House hotel. The destination was good. It was a nice city. The hotel location was average. It was interior in the city. It was surrounded by market area full of jewels shops. It was very uncomfortable. From bus stand its 2 km far to the hotel. The appearance was terrible. It was not a hotel according to me its a hut. There was an old small board of the hotel. The front desk was average. When I checked in they told there was no room booked by my name then they only took me and gave a room. They had only a table in the reception. Rooms were not maintained properly. It was not cleaned. There was an ordinary bed like a hospital bed. There was no western toilet. The room service was awful. They were not responding to me properly. Only one person was there no manpower in that hotel. They were charging extra money for any services. This was very annoying. Food facility was not there. I had food outside the lodge in Ananda bhavan hotel. No word of fun or other amenities. NOTHING !!! I traveled by public transportation (bus) and then arranged other transport to get to the hotel location. But the car cannot be parked in that hotel because it is in the market area. The overall service was disgusting and I will never suggest this hotel to anyone.

Best and comfortable visit

6.8/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

I visited Karaikal in the month of April 2017 on a business trip with my colleague. I directly booked a single bedroom in Kumaran Guest House when I reached there. The destination was a good place. Ill always visit this place monthly once. I was here because of some business purpose. The hotel location was excellent. It was convenient to reach the hotel. It was neat and calm. I traveled to this place by public transportation (train). From the railway station it was 7 km far to reach the location. The best way to reach the hotel location is to travel through an auto. The appearance was very appealing. It was neatly maintained. The front office was very helpful. They welcomed me in a proper way. The booking was done fast. They were very friendly to me. Rooms were comfortable. It was decent and neat. I stayed there for 2 days. Everything was presented and it was perfect. The room service was prompt and on-time. They were very friendly. I didn't take any food in that hotel. I had my meals outside the hotel. There was a hotel next to the bus stop by name Vasanth bhavan it serves tasty and quality food. There were few fun activities in that hotel but I didn't take part. But it was excellent. The overall service was good and I am satisfied.

Good budget hotel

5.1/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

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.

3.3/5
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.
