I made a booking for three rooms two three bed rooms and one two bed rooms for 28th to 30th June 3 days with Hotel Raya's Kumbakonam on 11th June 2018 with a guy called Manoj. But to my utter dismay I called them again today to reconfirm the booking since the guests are coming from far-off places. This Manoj guy is saying three is no booking in the name in which I made the booking and there is only a booking for one room in some other name. This guy is totally reckless and is not serious about his job. Let the management take a formal complaint about this guy and take appropriate action. Being in public service, he cannot be so casual. So, I am cautioning all Raya's guests to be careful when they make their booking that too particularly when they do the booking with this guy. This is a very serious matter.

Very spacious rooms, great value for money even considering that small-town Kumbakonam is not pricey anyway. Facilities are basic but functional. Breakfast was brought in from nearby and took time ... just stepping out to eat would be considerably quicker.

Both these hotels have average quality rooms. The size increases with the price, not necessarily the quality. The heritage rooms in Rayas and the deluxe rooms in Annex are slightly better.
The water quality at both places is horrible. It stinks!
It houses a non-veg restaurant that doles out pathetic vegetarian dishes. Better to walk to next door Annnapoorna for std veg fare.
Waiters will knock atleast 10 times a day, with some stupid reason and all for making money through tips. Its very irritating.
Still calling the hotel average as am not sure of the comparative quality of hotels in this city.

Photos below are for deluxe double room.

The hotel is fairly new but the toilet fittings are not properly maintained. The restaurant employees are not able to manage when it's gets even slightly crowded. Food is average. Rooms are good. Parking and driver accommodation is good too.

At the heart of Kumbakonam, near Mahamaham Tank (East side), this hotel (with parking inside, a bar and equipped with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurants, this hotel is good to get in refresh, visit nearby sights and also do some shopping of local handicrafts in the East street nearby. Staff are courteous and guide tourists with places of visit. Safe hotel. Luxury=No. Just basics.
