The hotel is very close to the Shrine Basilica, so that we were able to visit the shrine so many times during our visit. The rooms are very clean and tidy and very comfy. The manager, room service boys, house keeping people all are very friendly people and they accepted all our request with a smile. Next to the hotel there is a restaurant also. The hotel is very close the shrine depot, canteen and tonsure center and walkable to beach as well. Overall very good experience with GNANA VEDHA BEACH RESIDENCY.
