After we flew from the dirty RK Towers, we were lucky to find this place. The hotel is relatively new. The rooms are comdortable and clean. There is wifi internet and room service from the restaurant. Service personel is friendly and professionel. Recommend.

Hotel is good. We were visiting Nataraj temple and wanted to go to Pitchvaram forest. We were two adults and two children. Rooms were clean, well maintained with good service. We wanted to take extra bed, but they did not have extra bed. Also rooms are smaller. So with two children it was little tough for us to adjust. Otherwise we were satisfied with service and stay. Also do not expect hot water in the night. Opposite to bus stand and near to nataraj temple, so good location.

Room Tip: I got the room above reception side of the hotel and they were ok.

We were visiting Pichavaram and opted to stay in Chidambaram (about 10kms far) for better hotel facilities. Hotel seemed to be renewed recently and its really good. Double room is strictly for 2 not enough space to put extra bed. Complimentary buffet breakfast is just too good. Overall its a very pleasant stay in temple town

i never expected such a hotel in chidambaram ,its really too much for that town .
but the price they charge is was really shocking .money we spend is twice worth for its quality and comfort .
Never miss the food they serve in their restaurant .. you can taste the real flavour of south indian food . i stayed in room number 204, its a suite . it was more than enough for a comfortable stay.we definetely need someone to wake up us when we sleep in that bed .clean and very comfortable bed.

We were visiting chidambaram on a day trip from chennai along with pitchavaram during the long weekend a month back. So temple and boating in the mangrove forest was in the agenda. After few hours drive from chennai and an hour+ of boat ride, we were really hungry.

In the prior visits our experience chidambaram, we have always struggled with food.

We stumbled on the hotel for lunch pretty late like 2:00 pm. The restaurant and other facilities for refreshing very good and clean, after food, we relaxed a bit in the lobby as well till it was time for the temple to be open for darshan.

I have not experienced the rooms there though, but food wise it was pretty good for the town of the size of chidambaram.

Our experience is mixed. Reasonably good hotel but need lot of service improvements for the money they are charging. I stayed with my family in the suite. This hotel does not have the separate non-smoking rooms. Initially we were offered a room which terribly smoking smell. Then they offered us better room. There was no running hot water. When we asked them, they brought in a bucket.. There was no toilet paper and floor mats in the rest rooms which was delivered after long time.

Food served in restaurant is ok but spicy. Our experience in trying the buffet for dinner is not the good experience. Cut fruits were not preserved properly. Curd rice was terrible. Looks like they carried forward the left over from the lunch buffet. Other dishes were ok.

Room Tip: Please note some of the rooms are facing the bus stand which are very noisy. Try to avoid such rooms...

I was here for 3 Nights and enjoyed my stay thoroughly. The Hotel restaurant serves good food. The staffs are extremely helpful. I wanted to do my laundry unfortunately they dont have any inhouse laundry. But the staffs were helpful enuf to sent my clothes to the nearest laundry and delivered it once done.
Checkin and checkout was very swift.
The slight downside would be that this hotel is ard the corner to the main bus stop and noise the increase in noise but then its worth the money.
