“poor standards,by all means,but for the restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

I happened to stay in this conveniently located hotel but right from moment one, every thing went wrong.The hotel is not at all neat and even shabby in many area.The only exception is the restaurant which is being maintained properly,serving good food.The rooms are unclean and the whole furniture require refurbishing.The pretty old split air conditioner was not working and the problem was not fixed even after repeated requests and demands and we had to suffer the extreme summer heat the whole night.

I spent two nights at this hotel and found it unsatisfactory. The room was dirty, the one towel was grimy, the open shower made it difficult to use the bathroom, there was no wifi and breakfast was all carbohydrate and fat (I don't eat carbs).

Room Tip: Avoid the side next to the road if you must stay here.

I went to vellore for my college friend marriage with a batch of friends. My friend who is going to get married already booked the rooms in Hotel River View. The first attraction of this hotel is very very near to the vellore bus stand. The Hotel is with in built restaurant and very clean and has romantic look. The room service is also good in this hotel. Hot & cold water facility available. Double bed room per day costs around 700 to 1300 rs. It is a very nice place to stay. The receptionalist is also very helpful in this hotel, guided what are the sight seeings near vellore. I enjoyed with my friends in that hotel for those 2 days.

This hotel needs renovation and they have already started them. The rooms and rest room are average. The buffet breakfast is good. In the car parking there were lot of mosquetoes. Stayed in the suite and one of the A/c in the dining room was not working. The sofa's had few stains. Ok to stay for one stay and not recommended for extended stay. There are better hotels inside the city and this is little away from the city.
