“Stay here only if no other option”
Reviewed 13 August 2015

We visited Coonor in Sep 2014. Please consider before you chech-in.
Good Bits
1) Location is good
2) Rooms are Spacious
3) Some rooms have views
4) has a Huge lawn
Now the bad/worst bits
1) Rooms are damp, maintenance is poor
2) Food Quality is below average, We had a complimentary breakfast
3) Staff is mostly ignorant
Now why iam rating this poor- I had a small accident in this hotel, While in the Washroom the commode gave away, the reason i suspect is the walls were super damp and bolts got uprooted. Could have been a major accident but averted. Staff reactions were mixed, We had to change the rooms.. We left the same day as did not want to stay there anymore felt unsafe.. Now for readers, this might be one of a case but since it happened with me i am downgrading this place to - Not Recommended.

Room Tip: Has ample parking

A great experience to be in this small town. Coonoor is a beautiful town, great climate and wonderful people. Hotel Velan Coonoor is just a reflection of all these :-) very comfortable rooms and great hospitality....

This hotel is terrible.
As soon as you enter you will smell mold AND see critters. It triggered an allergy for my brother and we ended up leaving in about an hour of checking into the rooms. This was as recent as 2014. The staff is terrible and lazy! The location is great, but stay away from this place. I also have contacts that Velan group is trying to get rid of this property and they don't really care. I even contacted Velan but they dismissed my complaints!!!

Room Tip: Terrible hotel! Don't stay!!

Worst hotel, possibly on the planet. It used to be a very hotel when it was The Ritz. Once the Tirupur folks took it over it went from good to hell. Please please please do not even stay there. The staff are lazy and obnoxious, the rooms dirty, the linen filthy and the entire experience horrid.
