Of the three rooms we booked, we found one to be well maintained even though all were adjacent to each other.
The hotel is located at the best place..next to temple and opposite to sea with all sea facing rooms... On arrival, we found that the cleanliness of the common areas cannot be faulted since they are cleaned daily. We also noticed that there is a vast difference in quality between rooms.
I couldn't have asked more the amount of money I was paying and was totally satisfied with my stay. And you can get autos/taxi from the temple itself.. Too spacious room with reasonable rate with quality of food with all services at room. Love to stay once again as & when move to Somnath for blessing of Lord Shiva. After reading the reviews on this site, we were not expecting much.
They refused to allow me late(slightly) check out or to keep my luggage at the reception.
The rooms are decently maintained with an LCD Tv(which didn't work in my case) and air conditioning. Check-in, check-out was quick as well and the staff wasn't accommodating but not down right rude either.
This is undoubtedly the best located hotel in Somnath as it shares a boundary with the temple and all of its rooms face the sea.
All toilets had spanking clean white commodes and wash basins but the fixtures were corroded, dirty and unappealing.
We cannot expect "star" hotel courtesies and cleanliness for the nominal 1500 rupees we pay for an air conditioned room run by a trust.
Overall we found this to be an average place to stay for a one day pilgrimage.LIVE TV Online Darshan - All Jyotirlingas (Mahashivratri 10th March 2013) Maha Shivaratri 2013 - Live Streaming Websites - Jyotirlinga Darshan - Kashi Vishwanath Shivratri - Live Details Mar 10-3-2013 Somnath at Somnath Patan, near Veraval in Gujarat is a pilgrimage center held in great reverence throughout India.Somnath is considered to be the first of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva.We were issued two towels to a room which looked like they came straight from the laundry.The bed sheets were clean while the blankets were dusty and they have not been cleaned in a while.The dining hall had a limited fare and the food was good and agrees with the stomach.
