Good place to stay


Recommend this hotel! Great place to stay in Karaikal. They will provide you 90a‚¹ worth breakfast coupon and you can have breakfast in a nearby restaurant which is really good. Also railway station is nearby and at walkable distance. I'm not sure about bus stand.

Just average

Posted 3 Nov, 2017

On a religious trip with my friends we visited Karaikal in the month of June 2017. We booked this hotel through online process. The destination was a nice place. The hotel appearance was normal only. The hotel was located away from the city. We reached the hotel by own vehicle. The parking facility was there. The service staff were responded on time. The room allotted was clean and the basic amenities were provided in the room. The front desk was helped to do check in and check out process. The lift facility was available in the hotel. They were provided complimentary breakfast for us it was good. There were no fun activities in the hotel.

Overall my experience was good in this hotel and I visited this place with my family. Location of the hotel was convenient and normal. Staff member was cordial and helpful. Interior and outside look of the hotel was okay-okay. Room was well furnished and spacious. Nice view was visible from the room? S window. I took breakfast in the hotel it was fine taste and quality wise. Check in and check out process was on time. Activities were missing in the hotel. They did not arrange any sightseeing trip This hotel is recommendable and worth money paid. I live in Pondicherry and mother tongue is Tamil.

A practical hotel for a short stay

Posted 11 Oct, 2015

I visited the property as part our stay near Thirunallar post our darshans at the famous temple of Lord Shani. The property is in Karakul which is a traditional trading centre in the historic days and has found a mention in great Tamil Literature. I was happy that I could visit such a historic place and breath it's air. Famous Karakul Ammaiyar had hailed from this place . . The property is at least 5/7 kilometers from the Holy Temple and is in a side lane of the main market street in Karaikal. It is a compact property and has been kept clean and neat and worthy of a stay. Since it is a compact property the rooms were adequate though not great. A minimalist approach has been adapted to furnish the rooms. A great deal can be done to make the hotel rooms more attractive and enjoyable. The employees were courteous and helpful even in the late hours we checked in.

Poor service standard & unprofessional staff

Posted 29 Oct, 2015

I had visited Karaikal along with my family and booked two rooms here, this was included with breakfast. On arriving the hotel, they did not welcomed me at all as, the staff looks unprofessional without having any grooming. The rooms were average, not clean enough, as we were there for a night, we did not mind to spend the night Next day morning, I personally called to hold breakfast till 9: 30am. However to my surprise there was no breakfast available, I called up hotel manager who assured for delivery from near by road side restaurant. The breakfast served in poor condition to our look and feel. Very pathetic experience, where my kids did not have anything, left hotel empty stomach.
