We were in Tanjore for a few days and were lucky to stay here. The hotel staff were great, especially the ladies at reception. They were very helpful! The hotel itself was interesting - it seemed to have alot of deco touchs, like the wrought iron around the staircase but was also very '60s -'70s. I think it may have been an older hotel that had been gutted and re-built. Certainly the little picket fences around the potplants in the hallways were a unique touch!
The pool was fantastic and a welcome respite from walking around Tanjore which, when we were there, was a hot and quite dusty town. The restaurant was ok, but there are alot of others near there if you want to venture out. The room itself was fine -comfortable and spacious. Probably around a four star for India. My only peeve would have been that there seemed to be at least two or three rooms full of *businessmen* who spent alot of time drinking, smoking and looking out their room windows when I went for a swim, but as throughout India, discretion is probably your safest best when in your bikinis. In the same vein, I wouldn't venture down into the bar if you're a woman by herself or with another friend -even with a guy, you may feel uncomfortable as the bar was a bit like an underground cave.
