“Best hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stayed there two nights and it was quite luxurious. The hotel is just one year old. Very clean. Very good bed. Nice bathroom. The restaurant is excellant too. It is not too far from the central busstation. About 10 minutes with a tuk tuk. The staff is very helpful. I have been travelling in India for 10 days now and it was by far the nicest hotel.

Stayed for a night. Hotel is tastefully decorated. However the toilet is not properly designed. When you have a shower the whole toilet becomes wet. Service not upto standard .food is ok. Good thing is they have accommodation for chauffeur s. With more experienced staff they can improve their services to match the investment on the hotel.

Styled here on 17th Feb for a business trip. Very neat and clean hotel. Worth for money. Visited Swamimalai, Tanjavur etc. and came back at night. Very close to many Temples.I recommend this place. Got good spacious parking and separate dormitory for the drivers. Food is good.

Traveled as a family of 4 in November 2012. Nice and clean rooms that are modern and well furnished. The service was excellent. The restaurant is calm and neat. Food was nice and tasty. The bathroom was clean and the fittings were top class. 10/10 from me.

The hotel is very modern which would surprise you in this laid back temple town. Everything was clean and the service staff were friendly. The in-house restaurant was quiet decent as well.

It was a family pilgrimage with 2 naughty 3 year olds who made the lobby their playground. The hotel provided us with their brand new Innova (it was only one week old) for the whole trip and it was a pleasant experience staying in here.

Surely THE BEST in town.

Very nice place to stay with family and I really really enjoyed my stay.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was provided with all the required facilities and very clean. It was unbelievable to see that this kind of star hotel with all the facilities is providing room for £20 including free wifi all day which was helpful to me. Good place to stay and visit temples in Kumbakonam and around.

We experienced a mixture of heritage and traditional hotels before staying here and it was a pleasant break for us to have a super clean and modern room. The room was very large in size and so was the bathroom. Yes, as an earlier reviewer wrote, it was dark but that was because the curtains over the very large windows were closed to keep it cool during the day. Actually there were good reading lights, something we did not have in much more expensive places.

The dinner was fine, not terrible or wonderful, but fine. Beer can be obtained, discretely, from your waiter. The breakfast was a buffet and we were able to get omelets. The only issue we noticed was that the staff was relatively new to service, they were very willing to assist us but there are things they need to get understand... for instance letting the lady off of the elevator first (before the bellhop) or when ice is requested to bring a bucket and not a dish with a cube in it.
It is certainly a place any westerner should feel comfortable staying in, even though it is not yet well known.
