Not a very posh looking hotel, location is its main advantage. The Temple is very close, just a few minutes walking. The hotel is not centrally air conditioned, but has individual air conditioners in the room. No intercom - if you want something, you have to call the reception with your cell phone!

The breakfast is sumptuous. We went early morning to the temple, came back and had our breakfast. Thanks to the distance went to... More

Whenever I travel to small town, it is difficult to find rooms for physically challenged. Really nice to see a room specially designed for physically challenged people. Thank you so much.And the stay was much comfort and closer to the temple .

This hotel did not live up to some of the reviews I have read. The staff we courteous and helpful, but the properly was poorly maintained and dirty. As a place of pilgrimage for many Chidambaram is an important destination - however, like this hotel, it holds little charm, otherwise.

Hotel stay was very nice. Greatest advantage is that it very near to the temple. Hotel staff at the reception was very much helpful. 24 hrs hot water. Ample car parking. Since we dint eat at their restaurant I can't comment on their food.
