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.

Decent hotel. Decent hotel.

by peerr2017 on February 1, 2017

Rooms were clean and in acceptable condition. No frills or thrills here. Basic room and functional. Toilet cistern kept overflowing. They sent a staff to fix which he did only for it to give the same problem later. Food was good and i enjoyed the pool.

Ok Ok Hotel Ok Ok Hotel

by anumax4838 on January 30, 2017

When ever we go to velankanny we are staying in MGM. It is a very nice hotel. But this time i felt bad because of the following reasons. The room cleanness is not very good Insufficient room supply (tea bag, coffee etc) restaurant food quality become very low (Ala cate menu items) comparing to previous years and the price is very high and not worth for it. Break fast is very good.

A good place to stay A good place to stay

by George F on December 29, 2016

This hotel is very convenient for the transport facilities to the shrine as well as to other parts. We got dropped off by our transport bus right in front of the hotel gates, hence moving into the hotel with the luggage was easy. We had booked a villa which was just near to the entrance gate of the hotel. The rooms in the were ok for a short stay. The breakfast was good and satisfying. The price of food during the lunch and dinner were exorbitant comparing to the taste and quantity. The hotel staff are humble and kind during our 1 day stay. There was only one issue, the laundry service, later on at check out i was compensated with a discount vouchers by the hotel staff.

Clean Hotel with nice staffs Clean Hotel with nice staffs

by Mabel D on December 29, 2016

This hotel very nice and has a cozy atmosphere. The staffs are very nice & helpful. My mobile charger is 3 flat pins but there sockets were for round pins so when I asked for an adopter though didn't have one, they bought it and gave me the next day for use. The rooms are spacious and clean & tidy. There is one bedroom & living space. One problem was the flash of bathroom took too long to fill up. Otherwise there bathroom was clean & spacious as well. They have hair dryer in bathrooms. Has a electric kettle. We stayed there for 3 nights including Christmas day. So they provided complementary Christmas cake. Which was a very nice touch. The ground area is good for families with kids. There is playground. The swimming pool is well maintained. The restaurant is very nice & clean with modest choice of food. The food is also good. In Velankanni this would be a great place to stay.

Decent hotel near the Shrine Decent hotel near the Shrine

by dc_cet on November 7, 2016

This is the regular hotel i stay for my annual visits to Vailankanni. Around 2 kms from the shrine and saves you from the hustle and bustle of the hotels in the road near the Shrine. Autos available in plenty to take you to the shrine (Rs.100 one way) Pros: Good large and quite well maintained property, well mannered staff, tasty food in restaurant. Good quality toiletries Cons: Cleanliness could be improved in the bathrooms especially by providing better exhaust. The spring mattresses are broken at places and so you might end up sleeping uneven. Breakfast is average. Could have been better

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