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.

The bed sheets were torn and there were a lot of cob webs. The hotel is under renovation and lot of maintenance work was in progress. The worst part was the food. The hotel... More

The place was a bit run down, my A/C stopped working and couldn't be fixed till the next day, but the room was comfortable enough with the fan. The fan in my friend's room had a broken speed control so it was stuck on high speed. The furniture was aging and the light switches etc were sticky to touch. However... More
