“Extreme tip of India”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

It was a pleasant stay at the extreme tip of south India. Hotel is located ideally on the beach. Good view sunrise from the Terese. Staff is very good, food quality is good, excellent location and relaxation.

Room Tip: Select highest floor sea facing window/balcony room, You can enjoy nice sunrise from the room.

During our trip to Kanyakumar, we stayed at Hotel Samudra. This is a nice hotel with warm hospitality. Advantage is that from the top floot of the hotel, one can view the sunset and Sunrise at Kanyakumari.

This gives a good glimpse of Vivekananda Rock

We visited on 15th Oct 2011 booked though makemytrip.com.When we enter the room, honestly speaking horrible nightmare started. first we found a room with nasty toilet, uncleaned/dust full bedding where you never want to sleep can be compared with footpath livings.We paid Rs. 1200 per room per night, which was, as per them, the best room in the hotel, but any one could hardly pay more than Rs 350 for that room. We requested them to change the room but they first denied & then started playing a game. First they asked to provide additional Rs. 500 for changing the room to non ac deluxe but when we were ready to give ,then they denied and told that was the best room. At your first glance through the room, you may just feel vomiting. And please do not get confused with their marvelous picture ad given in the website of popular booking agents as they does exist virtually in the websites only not in real.
If u have no option pls stay in railway station but never go to this nasty place.

We had done a booking at this hotel from one of the travel agencies - travel2southindia . After travelling Madurai , Rameswaram we reached Kanyakumari and we checked into this hotel. It is closest hotel to the last point on Kanyakumari and that is where all the good things about this hotel ends. And then everything is just as bad as it can gets.
Starting from elevators that needs manual closing for both of its door and which keep reahersing "Please close both the doors" all throughout your noisy stay in the hotel.
We had booked 2 rooms and in one of the room such a foul smell was emanating as if it was "public busstand toliet". Even after cleaning the toilet twice we were not able to sleep in one of the rooms and we 4 people had to adjust in a single room.
With all the aesthetics of the 15 years hotel matching the worst lodge you would have ever seen, I was wondering how does it brands itself as Hotel and I was surprised how can people even rate it better then terrible as it has redefined terrible for me. We did not even bother to check other things in this hotel like food and room service with already having such a terrible experience with the other things. And yes dont forget to take your own bedsheets and towels, as you wont be able to use there dirty linens and towels. If I would have known I am going to a lodge or would have read other people's review I would have not bothered going there. Hence I am writing this first hand review of this hotel to warn other people heading this hotel.

Room Tip: Dont bother to look for good room in this hotel. Better book another hotel or skip this place out of...

I had an e-mail booking confirmation after confirming the tarrif on phone as well as e-mail and on arrival at the hotel they denied any such booking confirmation and had to look out for alternative accomodation which was time consuming and tiresome after a long journey to Kanyakumari.On requesting them to check their mail confirmation sent to me with the manager the reception staff denied any such e-mail confirmation sent to me and were rude aswell.I can provide the e-mail confirmation as reference on request.
