Nice hotel with good facility. Large room with good bathroom, though the water was not always hot. The pool looked good though i didnt try it. The staff were friendly and the food was quite tasty. The attractions were quite near to the hotel so it was all easy walking distance. No problem recommending this hotel

A lovely place, close to the centre of Mahabalipurum but quiet and leafy - a real oasis. Easy walking distance to the beach, the Shore Temple and Mahabalipurum hill. Staff helpful, a good sized pool and decent restaurant as well. Would definitely recommend it.

This place's USP is the location. All the sightseeing places are walking distance apart from 5 - Rathas. The rooms are big and have pool view. We stayed when the area was going through very rough storm(Dec'16) and in spite of many difficulties, the staffs did their best for the guests to accommodate all. We could not use the pool...

It is an awesome place and location. So close to the major visiting places and the bus stop. Its on the main road but yet so quiet and calm once you get to the hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Food is good for the price. ATM's are just outside the hotel and the staff are friendly and good.

Booked the hotel at a day's notice on a sudden plan to visit the place with relatives.

We only had two meals here, so don't know anything about rooms, room service, etc. Food was surprisingly good. And the prices surprisingly reasonable. Cheaper than the shady seashore place we'd eaten the night before. For lunch we had fish curry and fish fry. For dinner we had fish tikka and a whole fried Snapper with fried rice. Everything was...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days. Location is prime. All sightseeing places are in same vicinity. Some of them are walking distance. This hotel is one of the few star category hotels in mahabalipuram. Rooms are decent. We need to change our room. But the reception staff was courteous to upgrade us. Hotel has a nice swimming pool....
