“Very Nice & Comfortable hotel @ Kumbakonam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Traveled as a family of 3, we had pleasant stay in Sara Regency.
The room was large in size and the rooms & bathrooms were neat and clean
The room service was good, fast and decent
There is sufficient parking space
There were no mosquitoes in the rooms
Enough plug points to charge phones, tab & laptop

When If we are not using AC and switch on fan, it makes noise due to the hanging pipe hits fall-ceiling, but managed with AC in rainy too 

OVERALL RATING - VERY GOOD. Excellent value for Money. I will surely stay there again and recommend to friends who are visiting.

Very well priced hotel. Friendly staff and excellent service best describes this hotel.
I stayed for 3 nights and the staff go out of their way to accommodate your requests. A 4.30am breakfast was one of them by which i was mightily impressed. Rooms are clean and spacious however bathrooms could be better. Food was hygienic, Chinese food is very good at the restaurant.
A good place to stay while in Kumbakonam.

Selected this hotel after going through this forum - Tripadvisor.

Booked over the phone just a day earlier - it was a last minute decision to stop over in the city. Faced no hassles during check in. Responsive and courteous front desk staff. Other staff in the hotel were also courteous, but their response could have been faster. Overall experience was excellent. We stayed just for a day.

Nice, hotel, large, spacious rooms - at least the rooms that we stayed in - the 'Deluxe' rooms and the 'Executive' rooms. We needed 3 deluxe rooms - and as only two were available, they made one of the executive rooms available to us at the same rate, Good gesture on their part. Nice decor. The decor gave us a really nice and comfortable feeling. Even the bathroom was done up nicely, and clean. The bathroom fittings were probably the local imitations of the high end brands, and need slightly better maintenance. Nothing really to complain about - just that they had some salt deposits from the water - possibly because of the hard water in the region.

Enough plug points in the room to use mobile chargers, laptops, etc.! The hotel has wifi, but apparently not working from the previous day because of some problem.

Complementary breakfast - quite good. Compared to my experience in other similar hotels in the region, the breakfast was really good. But the spread could have been slightly better - more options could have been provided.

They have provision for parking and for the driver to stay - though I did not check the quality of the arrangements for the driver, the fact that they had proper provision itself made me feel comfortable, as this had been an issue in several cities in India.

Not sure if the location of the hotel is great - we had no problems as we had a car, but I believe this hotel is not located at the center of the city - more on the outskirts. Suited us fine, as we were only passing through, but if one had plans to go around the city, not sure if it would have been comfortable without a full time vehicle at disposal.

The only problem that we faced was during check-out. Their credit card machines did not work because of telephone line problems, and they wanted cash settlement. While they did offer to guide us to the nearest ATM - not a walking distance. Luckily we had enough cash - something that we normally do not carry around. This is a problem that the hotel has to address in some way.
Overall - very good experience

Friendly staff and excellent service best describes this hotel. I stayed for 5 nights and I must admit the staff go out of their way to ensure your comfort. Rooms are clean and price is reasonable. Food was good too. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for those looking for accommodation in Kumbakonum.

The hotel is a bit far from the bus stand or the railway station. But the hotel has excellent transport arrangements available at a very reasonable cost. If you don't have any temple tours planned, the concierge can help organise a tour package to see all the temples. If you have a chauffeured car, the driver has got a reasonable place to get some shut eye and to freshen up. The restaurant had excellent food and service. It's mostly Indian cuisine but there is some continental food available as well. All the staffs are pleasant and very helpful. The supervisor called Arun went out of the help us secure a booking in a B&B at Karur for our onward journey.

Overall had an enjoyable stay & recommend opting for Sara Regency in Kumbakonam.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the lifts are less noisy
