“A Decent Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Hotel Selvies is located very close to the Bus Stand and Railway Station in the small town of Tiruvarur. A decent hotel in the city. Rooms are good and spacious in the Annexe Building. They have expanded the hotel in phases and so the lift and the floors are in different levels. They have separate restaurants for veg and non veg Food. The quality of the food is good.

Room Tip: Prefer the deluxe rooms in the Annexe Building, though a bit pricy.

A brief visit to Thiruvarur, I stayed at this Hotel for a day. Perhaps the best option in a small place like Thiruvarur. New Block rooms AC Deluxe and Suite types are good and spacious. Found the veg food to be good and tasty though the choice is somewhat limited. Food cost though is slightly on the expensive side.

We stayed for 3 nights in Dec.2013. The room is spacious and comfortable. Quite close to the Bus Stand. Thyagarajar temple is about 15- 20 minutes walk from the hotel. The people are good and ready to help. I have hired a car and visited SAPTHA VIDANGA STHALANGAL ( 7 TEMPLES ) in 2 days. Nice place to stay.

We checked-in by mid-night. We had no time to search for other hotels.

Actually the rooms look decent. But the linens and mattress smells too old and it feels like wet.

There is a local bar & restaurant functions along with the lodge. So there is little shabbiness on account of that, on the lift other passage areas.

Mosquitoes are really a big problem. Take precautions.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the main building, if you travel with your family

We stayed for 4 nights and the stay was pleasant. The room (Deluxe 3 bed) was neat and clean. On the second day, we had to shift to another room since there were some ants in the first room. The new room was better than the first one, it was spacious. This was in the new wing (on top of the restaurant). The room service, house keeping and the restaurant service was good. The restaurant has a separate veg and non-veg section. Not sure if there is a separate kitchen !!. The veg food was good and the south indian items costed less. The service was good. The people manning the reception need some training in in customer interactions. The location is near the bus stand. There is a taxi stand nearby. Would recommend this for a small town.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms in the new wing (on top of the restaurant).

I stayed in this hotel as this is the best option available at Thiruvarur. On bright side clean room & resonably priced food available in Resturant. On the flip side, quality of bedding, bathroom cleanliness etc was pathetic.

Another big issue is no one understand, reception included english and that is a big handicap. Fortunately, I had to spend only one night there, so no big issue. I woudn't recommend this hotel to anyone but there is not other option if you are visiting this place. So when I go again there, I will still be staying at Selvies :(

In this city I will not expect more than what this hotel provides. Stayed in 4 bed AC room. Big room. Ac worked during powercut period with very good power backup. Even some big hotels wont run AC using backup. But this hotel is great in that front. Staff aare good and well attentive when we needed. The bathtub is not comfortable and not maintained well. They have a veg and a non veg restaurant in the first floor. We tried lunch dinner and breakfast - all are good and reasonably priced. No windows in the room. No exhauster in bathroom...so there is a feel of bad smell. So once in a while keep the main door open to get refreshed.
Tip: get the room in the extension (new building). It has 3 bed and 4 bed ac rooms.
