Regency Tuticorin By GRT Hotels
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Tuticorin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2011

Booking: Online booking through the internet
I booked a single room, however I ended up in a room with two single beds :)
The food is tasty & relatively inexpensive, same with the hotel.
The breakfast is Indian Buffet style, simple & tasty.
Generally the room was found clean.
There is not much around the hotel to see & one would need a transport to move about.
Taxi's are relatively expensive if you compare with the Metro's in India, as they charge an up & down fare, even if you travelling only in one direction.
If you are on a business trip, I would say go for it, it's value for money.

We stayed here for a day on our way from Chennai to Colombo by Ferry via Tuticorin port. Probably one of the 'biggest' hotels in Tuticorin. The room was good, staff at all grades were friendly, obliging and accommodative. Had good Indian food for lunch and dinner, relatively cheap. We made a trip to Tiruchendur (45 min by car) temple but decided against visiting Kanyakumari, the southern most point in India (3 hrs), perhaps the only two things to do when in Tuticorin. The hotel was only 2 yrs old, but was already showing signs of poor maintenance (leaky taps, non cooling fridge, safe deposit box not working etc). Overall, good value for money. The hotel has no liquor licence. So, dont forget to bring your own!

Surely not a hotel I would ever go to again. The quality to price ratio is definitely not good.
I am from Europe and as I often come to India for business trips a good hotel is a must when staying here long periods.
The restaurant food quality is terrible. International breakfast isn't available.
I booked the best room available (suite for 5k rs per night). The rooms are old and not kept to quality standards which you would expect for that much money especially in such a small city in India.
Bad customer assistance.
If you are staying in that area I would recommend RR hotel in Chetticurici. Much less expensive and higher quality standards.

I have stayed in this hotel several times over the past two years ever since it opened as 'Mayflower' under the Quality Inn umbrella. It was subsequently acquired & rebranded by GRT. By Tuticorin standards, this hotel is very good. It is located close to the industrial area of the town with companies like Sterlite, SPIC, etc. not being too far away. Buffet breakfast is quite sumptuous & delicious. Staff are quite pleasant & friendly.

Since it is quite a distance away from the town (on the road to Tirunelveli & the airport), local transportation (autos) would be very difficult especially in the late evenings. A major drawback is that despite having been in existence for the last 2 years, the hotel doesnt have a bar / liquor permit. I also had the bad experience of getting a non-veg dish (I am a pure veggie) delivered in my room while I had ordered for a veg snack.

The only other hotel that is generally believed to be on par is DSF Grand Plaza where I have never stayed & hence am unable to rate. But DSF's location is right near the heart of the town & very close to the railway station. Plus DSF has a decent bar.

I would like to begin this letter on point, before going into full detail about my stay. You should be proud to know that i feel that you run "the" best hotel in the city of Tuticorin.It's funny how a preconceived notion can be so completely off base. There is not one, single complaint about this hotel.
Having decided not to rough it out, I chose to stay in GRT .
The hotel is exquisitely appointed, intimate and elegant. All of the staff members were lovely hosts—charming, warm, gracious, accommodating, and meticulously professional. Collectively, their team ensured the stay to be pleasant
The food was amazing and I can never forget the taste. The restaurants menu had some of the finest cuisines
To summarize,this is fabulous and you guys Rock!!
