Vandayar Hotel
Ranked #1 of 9 Chidambaram B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 12, 2014

our room was small but comfortable, service from all staff was excellent - room service was fast and reception staff were very helpful. the hotel is very near to the bus station but still quiet in thye evening, we had a very good night's sleep.

The main town shopping and eating area is very close, temple around a 10 minute walk. breakfast in the morning was buffet style, varied and enjoyable.

The hotel is located opposite the bus stand(but the noise doesnt reach the rooms) and it is a ten min walk to the Chidambaram temple. There is ample car parking space. I guess while many reviews talk about great food here, it may just be the non vegetarian fare. Hotel Saradha Ram, which is a minute away from this hotel definitely offers better Veg Food. So, if you are a vegetarian, you may not really find the food to be great or the lingering odour in the restaurant comfortable. So, if you are looking for a hotel for your temple visit, this environment isnt really complementing.

The standard room is small but neat. The split ac was creating a loud racquet and the vents and air filters were completely choked with dust, we actually got them to clean it up, as there was no fan in the room or other source of ventilation. The service staff go about the chores in their own ways and things like standard operating procudures are far fetched !

The buffet breakfast was ok, except for some truly aweful coffee. There is no live station, so even the dosa is made earlier and served at the buffet table.

Amidst the mostly seedly lodges in Chidambaram, this is a better bet. But long way to go before it can claim to be the best.

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.
