Magnificent hotel with clean rooms

Posted 13 Oct, 2015

I stayed at this magnificent hotel when I visited the city last March on a business purpose. Location of the hotel is very good. I was fully satisfied at the services and hospitality there. Rooms are always clean and fresh, besides, the attached toilet was really of high standard. I got a royal taste in the food provided there.

Cordial staff; good amenities; value for money

Posted 1 Nov, 2014

I stayed in Hotel Visalam, a CGH group of heritage hotel in Karaikudi on a business trip. It was a fine experience to stay there and feel a business man in the mansion. The amenities of library, traditional games, pool are quite good and feel like the past century. The staff were quite cordial and provide good housekeeping. There are few shops in the locality, can buy snacks or medicines in Karaikudi town as this is in Kanadukathan village a few km away nice place to stay and chill out the village life for a day or tow. Worth the price. Take a cart ride to village arranged by housekeeping. Visit Chettinad temples other mansions, temple, tile making, weaving, etc. Lot of things can be explored. The railway station is also a heritage place. Nice trip.
