Reviewed 6 October 2014

I have opted to stay in this due to its location (nearby nehru stadium). Initially, no one had a clue on this hotel even the nearby auto wallas, it is located away from main road. The booking and follow-up was decent but the rooms were badly maintained. The moment I entered, I felt it's a mistake by the smell of the room. I stayed there only for one night and the restaurants were closed with no intimation however they claimed it will be available. No water was served but when the receptionist spotted that I was purchasing water from outside, they claim serving water only on request.

GOOD:
They were flexible in the check-in and check-out time (by 2 hrs on request without any charge).
The rooms were spacious for a single occupant

BAD:
Room service, only 1 for the entire hotel and you to wait, wait and keep waiting
Cleanliness of the rooms

Ended up in Mesabel for a day stay as my regular hotel was booked. It was a little inconvenient to take an auto after much haggling outside the Coimbatore junction instead of just walking across but the hotel is located in a peaceful lane close to the stadium.

The hotel is an old property and has been kept in good condition, the rooms are adequate and clean. The TV is the old fashioned portable type and was quite inconveniently placed despite a mounted wall bracket. The washroom was large and comfortable and there was hot water on tap.

The free wifi was not working on the day and could have been a service provider issue. I was pleasantly surprised with the room service, the food looked and tasted like home food. Dosa in hotels would be the thin crisp ones with lot of oil, this was how it is usually made at home. Also plain dosa comes as two. The rates are also quite nominal. I did not get to try their lunch and dinner on this trip.

I would recommend this hotel if the location is overlooked. It is small, cosy and adequate. The pricing is moderate too and the food reminds you of home.

Stayed there for one night. The quality of the rooms are bad. They look old and need to be maintained well. The taps are leaking and there are cockroaches. The breakfast was good and the staff were good. The cost is far too high for this hotel.

Got booked into this hotel three times through my company service desk (I am a manager at one of the leading FMCG companies in India). Though the property is good, it is the staff that makes staying here a painful experience.
Firstly about the hotel:
THE GOOD:
- Spacious rooms
- Clean
- Comfortably furnished
THE BAD:
- Very few eating joints in the vicinity
- A restaurant that serves minimum items for breakfast and lunch and remains closed post lunch. Bottomline: No dinner here!
- Room service
- Just two people in the staff understand rudimentary English/ Hindi. None of the house-keeping folks understand English/ Hindi! Be prepared to learn Tamil if you are staying for long!
- No hot bathing water for a couple of days

THE UGLY:
- Cost cutting measures like not turning on the generator during power cuts. Excuses like "There is no diesel" for 4-5 instances
- Rude management that won't hear complains and acts as if this is the only hotel in town
- Unreliable laundry service - can take 2-3 days (Excuse: Laundry guy has taken a day off). I would suggest against laundry here if on a short 1-2 days trip
- Staff that leaves your clothes on the ground (yes!) after cleaning the room!

Overall, the stay was not at all worth the money spent. I would recommend you to check out other hotels that offer better service at a lower price in a better location.

PS: A premier hotel booking intermediary service is considering blacklisting this hotel in their service. Just an FYI for future travellers.

Room Tip: Road facing rooms are more spacious! (If you still decide to stay here!)

Stayed there for a night. Checked in at 11:00 PM and checked out at 5:30 AM.
Ok for a night's stay. Room and bathroom were clean inspite of beign old. Room is old fashioned with mosaic floor and Window AC.
