Review of Sea View Lodge, KanyaKumari (Tamil Nadu)

Kanyakumari town hardly needs any introduction because every Indian knows that it is southern most tip of India. KanyaKumari is situated in Tamil Nadu state of India and it is very popular tourist destination in India. Millions of people every year visit Kanyakumari to see southern most tip of India. I also visited Kanyakumari to experience excitement of standing of Southern most tip of India.

I stayed in Sea View Lodge in Kanyakumari which is situated near Kanyakumari beach and it faces famous Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar Statue. This is the main attraction of this lodge that you get chance to see famous attractions of Kanyakumari from lodge. Moreover, People can enjoy sun rise from lodge itself. However expect these attractions; this is an average lodge with some comforts missing. I stayed in this lodge for two nights and three days.

I selected this lodge because of its presence on beach; however, I have no idea that other services can be missing in this lodge. The AC of my room was not working and it smelled when I tried to start it. They changed my room and I faced same situation again. Hot water supply was limited and quality of food was average. The only attraction of this hotel is its location and nearness to famous places in Kanyakumari. People can watch Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Thiruvalluvar Statue and Kanyakumari sun rise from their lodge room itself (if you take room facing sea).

However, I felt slightly let down by services offered by them. If people are looking for good view and they want to feel Kanyakumari but they can compromise on services then this lodge is for them. Room rent for rooms in Sea View Lodge is between Rs 3000 to Rs 4000. My rating for this hotel is 6 out of 10 (only because of its good location). For service, I will give only 4 points out of 10.
