Stayed here for a night in early February. Love these quaint, charming old houses with years of history and heritage behind them. The rooms are so brightly colored that they cheer you up instantly. The ground floor main drawing room still has the first paint! And of course the Athangudi and imported tiles are a sight by themselves! 75 plus Mr Chandramouli is a genial and entertaining host--he was charming to our daughter! The mansion's location in Kanadukathan, which is a heritage village, helps as you can go see a few other houses, equally charming and mind-boggling! Athangudi, the handmade tile center, is nearby. Karaikudi is also a good place to visit, but we didn't like it--too much of a commercial centre. The mansion is oriented towards and used to foreigners, so if you are Indian, you may have to push through. The food is superbly cooked but the portions are small for the price, and the servers don't really ask again; if you hesitate to ask for second helpings, you lose. There's wifi in the drawing room but no TV--it's a bit inexplicable! Bathrooms are superb and spacious, but the plumbing is new and forced upon an ancient building, so may give trouble! Mosquitoes are aplenty! But all in all, we got good value, beautiful photos and a memorable stay!
