Hotel Riverside Resort & Spa
Ranked #10 of 25 Hotels in Kumbakonam
Reviewed November 23, 2011

We had our customer meet on Nov 10 at this place. They did a fairly good job. Everything was meticulously planned right from the meeting arrangements to the cocktail dinner. We had also booked around 5 rooms which were excellent and room service was spot on. Very good value for money. Has got a Spa, Gym and swimming pool. They also have cottages for families. Heard all the filmstars stay here during shootings at Kumbakonam. The Manager, Mr. Rajagopalan is a gentleman and knows how to deal courteously with customers. Overall, a very good experience and must recommend for travellers.

Room Tip: You can opt for the cottages if u want an early swim as the swimming pool is located between the 4 c...

General clean surrondings and rooms; The swimming pool could have been indoor though, the water heat can put you off.

Very good food : try the local favorite slike idlis, dosas, etc. Their sambhar is to die for. They take some time to serve your orders but it is fresh and worth the wait

Excellent service : Staff very courteous; The manager was very helpful with planning our travel itinery and their in-house vehicle driver was excellent in executing the plan

Super-clean rooms, super-green surroundings, gloriously quiet and private. Riverside seems renovated yesterday, such is the quality of maintenance.

Place enoughs to park your cars, SUVs and elephants, if you have intimations of royalty.

Superb airconditioning across the resort with individual adjustment in the rooms.

Service always with such a dear smile - which remains when your back turns.

Spanking clean, dry bathrooms, with all modcons.

A lovely swimming pool, water so clean, and a wonderfully stocked bar - only one in Kumbakonam, my dear -by the pool.

Everywhere in Riverside, the staff seem to be so enthusiastic about every suggestion of yours, seem determined to enhance the quality of your stay.

And the tariff is so reasonable for all the comforts Riverside provides. I come from metropolitan Chennai, with it's 5-star hotels, and I can say that Riverside can teach the city-slickers many, many lessons in hospitality.

Riverside - what a discovery, what a grand place to stay!

Kumbakonam happens to be close to the village from where our family hails. A nearby village is the place where there is a temple dedicated to our "Kuladeyvam" - family deity. For quite a few years now, our family members make annual pilgrimage to this temple. Recently, my brother decided to celebrate his 60th birth day function at this temple and our extended family consisting of some 16 members were there to participate.

During our earlier trips, we had stayed in smaller hotels, but this time, my brother had arranged at this resort. It was an eye opener and turned out to be a very pleasant experience.

The entire campus is well maintained and each cluster of rooms was independent. With so many people in our group, we had taken over one full cluster. This gave us lot of space and the kids in our group had a great time. The courtyard became the central meeting place to announce the next programme for the day!

The rooms were very clean and convenient. The service took some time since the restaurant was away from our cluster of rooms. The breakfast had a good spread of south indian and other varieties. We could have dinner only on one occasion and it was OK.

We did not have enough time to take advantage of all the other facilities. We decided that the next trip will have one day set aside for total relaxation and to enjoy the swimming pool, Gym and other facilities.

I am very much looking forward to the next trip down south!
