Hi, My Review is for the MGM Velankanni Residency in Velankanni. I have always stayed at this hotel on all my visits to Velankanni and this time too i stayed here. Only difference was that i booked this time through Travelguru. First of all a few words on the Booking Process through Travelguru: Neat Website, all good options with Prices is listed. Quickly made my clicks since i wanted to stay at MGM and the hotel was highly listed in the Travelguru Pick. Also got a discount on Using ICICI Payment. Recieved confirmation from TravelGuru.(TGU0001258609) Took printout and set off on the journey. I travelled 29 Hours on The Nizamuddin Chennai Rajdhani and reached Chennai, transferred to Egmore station for my overnight train to Nagapattinam from where Velankanni is only 14 Kms away. Couple of Hours before i am to board the Train in Egmore i see mail from Travelguru (at 20:56 hrs) saying that due to some reason the Booking at MGM is cancelled and that i must shift to some other hotel Called VKN (General Hotel in Travel guru Classification) whereas MGM was three star. i immediately tried to contact Travel Guru on the Mobile Number provided at 21:14 Hrs. The Mobile Number was disconnected and the landline was after a few rings answered by Malleesh to whom i said please put me up in a equivalent hotel. He promised to call back immediately. No call came for an hour and then i again tried the number. But now no one was picking the landline also (022 61539500). I went to the Travelguru Website and called the main number, talked to executive who then transferred to Hotel desk who informed me that they are sorry for what has happened and nothing can be done and that i should accept VKN and they will refund the difference of 2000 Rs. I never expected such a treatment from Travelguru, and there was no help forthcoming from the executive who only said that i can accept the alternate and till 8 am nothing can be done. I asked for a senior manager's number and i was told that they dont have the authority for sharing the, how is that ... Anyways this went going back and forth till 12 am and then i said that ok i will take the hotel after visiting the same in the morning. Nest day i reached Nagapattinam, just by sheer chance i thought of calling MGM and asking for space. Miracle happened and they said that yes they are holding two rooms for us. How is that....i quickly confirmed that i am coming and reached there and took the rooms. Extremely Bad treatment by Travelguru. Now for the actual review: - The Hotel is convienently located from Nagapattinam station. It is at the entrance of Velankanni and you therefore dont have to navigate the filth and pollution of Inner Velankanni. The Hotel Facilities are expanded compared to my last visit in 2007. Better Resturant and rooms. Both our Rooms were comfortable (203/205) however Room No 203 was almost double the size of 205, but same tariff. Not sure why. Rooms equipped with Mini Bars/ Hot Water (only through solar, we had to ask for Hot water Buckets) and Comfortable Beds/AC. Dining options have improved, however choice is still limited. Chef Believes in SPcing up everything. Staff was very helpful, especially the reception. they gave us a 20% discount on F & B. Wireless availability is only in reception and not in rooms Velankanni Church is very close by, Autos Charge Rs 70 but we walked (15-17 Minutes) There used to be a Childrens Play Area (now Closed) and a Grotto on Campus (now inaccessible due to water logging) All in all a good Visit. No to Travelguru However Regards Ouseph Francis

The resort was good. It is located at a very convenient location and the surrounding is great. The MGM theme park being just next door has an added attraction. However the room tariff is so cheap. Deepa Verma

The Hotel is under renovation. We can not expect anything better than this at present. The work will get over before Christmas. The Manager and his entire team are capable and polite. I feel after the renovation from the existing 22 rooms to 55 (If I am correct)with the servicing mentality they have, we can expect a good hotel at Velankanni. I really look forward to stay in the same place next year.

Best hotel in the region Best hotel in the region

by sun89rad on March 21, 2017

After reading reviews and availing a good deal from Makemytrip, I visited the hotel few days ago. Clean rooms, good service and tasty food made me extend the stay for one more day. Best place to relax after visiting the shrine and beach. However the breakfast buffet spread and a la carte options are limited. Nevertheless a pleasant stay over all. I will be visiting again with family.

Still the Best in the locality! Still the Best in the locality!

by Yadhiraj on March 18, 2017

Before I wrote this review I went through my previous review about MGM Vlkn about 3yrs back and I was pleasantly surprised that all the negatives I had mentioned have been fixed. So it is my duty to mention those first, like the unpleasant smell in the toilets are no more, the toiletries provided were branded and of high quality, the complimentary breakfast was really good and the restaurant staff was very very hospitable. Kudos to the management of MGM for taking my previous pointers seriously. So this time I have nothing but only good things to add. Which are: 1) The most hygienic and quality hotel in the locality 2) The only hotel with a good pool 3) A very friendly and helpful staff Lastly the price issue, definitely higher than rest but almost at par with Clinton Park. But the rooms and overall standard of the hotel is way above Clinton. A very very pleasant stay. Definitely looking forward to staying there next year.

An Adequate Overnight after a Visit to the Basilica An Adequate Overnight after a Visit to the Basilica

by Retirada on March 17, 2017

After a day visiting the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady of Good Health, we stayed overnight here. Check-in was fast, efficient & friendly as we are greeted with a cold towel & a sweet cold drink. My room #304 is very big, with a separate living room. Balcony, bath w/ shower, mini-fridge with free cold water, good AC, coffee/tea service, nice framed photos of old Indian churches. Why am I only giving this an "average"rating? Because the room, especially the upholstered furniture, needed a good cleaning. Dinner & breakfast were adequate, nothing special. A good place to relax after a hot day visiting churches.

As we used to stay in MGM hotels we booked this hotel during our Pilgrimage trip.The hotel is good very spacious.Three bedded rooms available. We were the odd man out there.All of them who stayed there came to worship Velankanni Matha Church.We were on a pilgrimage to Hindu temples.Hazel free check in.Round the clock security is there to look after the vehicles.Complementary breakfast is good.The fish smell in the restaurant bothered us a little bit.

A decent place in Velankanny A decent place in Velankanny

by Sibikthomas2001 on March 1, 2017

A decent place in Velankanny. .. not much. . In a place like this and especially on a pilgrimage don't expect much. . Food is not good. . Unprofessional staff in the restaurant. .most of the time they are chatting together in a corner ..that too so loud. . Why should these hotels employ so many people in a small restaurant like this. . In US and Europe. .I have seen one girl or a boy managing much bigger restaurants. . There should be a Standard Operating Practice or SOP for each staff. .

Demo Trip Take the rooms opp lift parallel to the reception. Things kept in table and fridge are too costly compared to MRP.
