“Clean rooms; scary bathrooms”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

We moved to this hotel after an awful experience elsewhere in Vellore. Te staff was very eager to serve and was the very best part of this hotel. We were able to change rooms after our second night there, as we were given a room that lacked a window. The bathrooms were very, very old with corroded fixtures and tattered shower curtains. The rooms were clean but had an odd smell. Our a/c stopped working on our last night there. For a small town in India, I guess this hotel was better than some but is not near the standards for an international traveler.

Had to go to Vellore for attending a friend's marriage. After much searching in the net, read the reviews and selected Hotel Surabi International. Hotel is decent, located on Anna Salai, one of the main areas in Vellore. Took a double bed AC room for one day. Room was good enough for the price. In the morning, we woke up late and found that the complimentary breakfast time is over. But they gave us dosa and coffee on a chargeable basis. Would have appreciated if they had given it as compliment. Did not try their non-veg restaurant. Room service was prompt, but people were expecting to be tipped. Overall a decent place to stay.

Vellore is becoming more famous these days because of the golden temple, Vellore institute of techology and CMC, one of the world's best hospitals. I had a chance to visit vellore sometime back in 2008 for business purpose and my company had booked my stay @ Surabhi for a night, as we had a seminar in the same hotel.

Surabhi is a decent hotel with all facilities. The tariffs are normal and not too expensive. they have a 24 hour check in/out, which is again advantageous. They do provide complimentary breakfast during the stay and the food, though not the best is acceptable.

You have a number of facilities like 24 hours coffee shop, travel desk.. doctor on call.. etc.. etc.. One disadvantage was that they do not have wi-fi enabled. But they do have internet parlours for browsing. But providing wi-fi options will provide a better customer experience especially for businessmen.

Room service was good and they respond immediately. Food as said earlier was not too delicious. But was acceptable. Overall. it was worth for the tariff they charge.

The best part about this hotel is undoubtedly its glossy lobby. However the trumpcard is its roof-top restaurant which offers a good view of Vellore and the magnificent Golden temple. Food is decent. But i'd advice you to stay away from the fish. Other than that food is fine. The rooms are pretty crisp and neat too.
