We stayed for 2 days at Vidhi Residency in Jan 2009 during the Republic Day long weekend.
The rooms are very well maintained and are good value for money. Each room has a LCD TV, very comfortable neat bed, big bathrooms and hardwood flooring.
The staff is helpful and courteous. The room service takes a bit of time but we found the food to be excellent everytime we ordered. The inhouse travel desk helped us get a car for day long sight-seeing at a very reasonable rate. The compliumentary breakfast is good too.

We booked this hotel for 6 Members (3 Families) - based on the travel guru ratings.
The hotel is very clean & comfortable,everything was fine but the problem started when we vacate the rooms.
During vacating time- as a policy, room service had checked the rooms - he came out with the problem as stating that - Remote (TV) is missing ?? Asking us to check the room - We surprise to hear from him -as our check in time was night 9.00 pm we came long way from Bangalore by train,we had dinner & slept.
We not even SWITCH ON TV -during our stay, the room service boy arguing that he had provided remote. As we dont want to make issue - we ask himt to check records -He dont like to check records- Finally he check records & agreed his mistake.
Finally we would like to say is - THEY ARE NOT TREATING CUSTOMERS IN GOOD MANNER.
Other wise the hotel is perfectly alright.

Had stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with family in October 2011. The hotel is excellent and value for money. Centrally located within the main shopping district and near to the station and beach (10-15 mins by auto) The ambiance is really good and well furnished. The rooms have LCD tvs and AC. The associated restaurant provides good food and the complimentary breakfast provides a diverse choice though mostly South Indian food. The F&B Manager is very courteous and helpful. The hotel helped us in arranging cars for sightseeing, which charged nominally.
The only downside of the hotel is poor room service. We need to ask atleast two times to get drinking water in the room. Moreover, most of the service staff seems to be untrained and included a minor.
Further, during the time we visited there was frequent powercuts due to some political problems, a generator kept running through out (could not find out whether it was the hotel's or some neighbour building's) and the smoke and the sound was quite disturbing.

Hotel is been under renovation i.e Painting & Pest Control, that's why when i entered to my room it was been a horrifying scene to see it, on the bed & pillow their where lots of COACKROCHES, few minute i felt that they where been waiting to meet or what. But later on they gave me another room, which was been relatively good. Talking about positive thing is that: Centeraly located, easy to go to beaches, theater, shopping mall, hotels & railway station. Ambience of the hotel is much better compare to the previous hotel where i stayed. Restaurant facility is been their & they offer complimentary breakfast on stay. Rooms are short & sweet, but bathroom should be little better in size, one can stay with their family during vacation.

Everything was fine, except the reception person in the duty was so arrogant that without checking he stopped me and was questioning that "You have booked for only one person, why two people are staying". Actually I have booked for two people. After checking he realized his mistake but there was no word of sorry from him. Very bad people work in this hotel at night.
