“Happiest stay at Chidambaram”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We(self and wife) went to CDM on 11th of May 2014 and stayed for 2 days.I was always searching for a good hotel to stay though I had stayed in several hotels at CDM.
In all aspects this the best available hotel at CDM as of today.
Food is good.
Tiffin chutney and sambar ,they may try to do something better to add more taste though it is good.
In future I will always stay here and recommend to others.
My only request is that they must maintain the same cleanliness.( room and the restaurant in the future also.)

I stayed with my wife and kids in Hotel Vandayar as a base camp to visit Pichavaram which is 15 km from Chidambaram. I found the hotel to be reasonable, clean and has good food. The breakfast was complementary. Overall good value for money and safe. The staff were courteous and nice. The only negative was that the water was not that great, but in many places of Tamil Nadu, you get softened water only in five star hotels, so it was quite ok by those standards. I will stay there again if I visit Chidambaram

Vandayar Hotel is located ideally. It is close to the temple which is very important. Good and friendly front desk is half the work done. Rooms are quite decent for the price we are paying. Room service is really good and the food is nice. In short it is real Paisa Wasoooooool

This was a pleasant stay in a busy place. The rooms were comfortable but basic, however the restaurant was really very good. Some coat hangers for western guests would be great! Staff were helpful and their driver who took us to Pondicherry was excellent. As a general rule, bathrooms in India are not as well cared for as westerners expect, but these were fine in the rooms. The public toilets In the reception area however, need some close attention.

Chidambaram, known for the famous Nataraja Temple, has an excellent hotel, Vandayar Hotel. It is a compact hotel but is suitable for looking around the town. It has a good restaurant and neat rooms. Close to the temple, it is a very good hotel.

At the outset had no idea of chidambaram, but when i had to travel, discssed wih one of my frnd who travels quite often to chidambaram. He informed me that hotels in chidambaram are worst inTamilnadu but still he refered a hotel. But still I was worried coz I had to stay for 5 days. So surfed Tripadvisor, and found this hotel to be better so I went ahead with booking.

When I reached it was unexpected to see the hotel, it was good and decent with alk the lighting etc.... it had a good parking space, and parking was no difficult. The entrance lobby looked good and was different. Check In was faster

Once I entered the room I was little shocked, to see a tiny room. But once after I had arranged all stuff, felt such a compact room was good for a business travel. The room had all the basic stuff. The room was clean and so the toilet was. The bed was good and the sleep quality was good.
The staff were very polite and he room service was also good
The breakfast was homely in taste and with a widespread of south indian dishes.

Recommed for a repeat stay.
