We stayed three nights at this restored Chettinad mansion in April 2009. The staff were wonderfully attentive without being intrusive. We opted for the Chettinad cooking demonstration with the chef, Siva - highly recommended! Ramu, one of the other staffers, also took us on a walking tour of the village - something that should not be missed. He was able to point out quite a few details of the village that would have gone unnoticed otherwise. The gigantic rooms were very well appointed and were air conditioned. There were no TV's in the rooms (which was fine by me) but (wired) high speed internet is available for no charge. The food was excellent and all freshly prepared. All in all, a fantastic hotel! Very highly recommended.
