We came here as a group of 15 for a High School reunion. Only because of the food quality I have given it a 4 star (rather than 3 star). The breakfast, lunch and high tea were of the highest quality. Rooms were ok. They do not provide tea/coffee makers and toilet rolls.

After our pathetic stay in Annamalai International Hotel in Puducherry (please read my review in tripadvisor) we get fresh air in this hotel. We were 3 (2 adult +1 child) and booked a Suite. It was very spacious with 2 double bed, 2 AC, 1 sofa set, 1 table, 1 cupboard, 1 TV. There was a 6 ft mirror in bathroom. Overall very good. It had a homely vibe. We felt very comfortable cannot explain why. That was the vibe. They did not have hindi channels in TV. As we requested immediately they made arrangements & took subscription. We were very happy. This is called customer friendly. Again when we asked them to arrange cab for Chennai airport they suggested to book OLA as it will be cheaper & will be available within 2 min. They told "if we call cab they charge Rs200 extra". We are totally impressed by their behaviour. Two things I did not like: 1) The swimming pool is just at the entrance. It feels very awkward. Whoever enters the hotel can see people bathing. 2) The toiletries provided were very basic (clinic plus, lifebuoy...) 3) For suite room they didnt provide electric kettle, tea, coffee pouch etc. These are to be improved. In spite of this I would recommend this hotel as it is very good, considering the price they offer

Visited Mahabalipuram on the 25th February. This was a last minute check in. The hotel is Basic. Very reasonably priced. The staff is helpful and courteous. The owner of this property is present there all times. He offered to help in translating the language TAMIL Mr. Ganesh at the reception was also cheerful person. The service in the rooms was immediate

Hello Friends, This Hotel released my booking without informing me and my travel date is after 10 Days. I Spoke to Mr Akash Gupta for the booking and on mail everything was confirmed, but now hotel is denying to provide the room as they have offered to someone else. Lack of Hospitality information i find here because no one can release your hotel booking without informing you if confirmation is received from Hotel. Mr Akash Gupta Said that payment was not received due to that policies we released the room, i highly appreciate Akash for the same that he welcomes guests to Mahabalipuram and his property like this even speaking for the payment that it will be received 10 days prior arrival. Thanks for Cooperation My Travel Journey

Response from MohitG1082, Guest Relations Manager at Nirvana Boutique Hotel
Responded 10 Jan 2020
Dear Mr Nitish , Greetings from Nirvana Boutique Hotel, Mahabalipuram. We would like to draw your attention to our mail which clearly stated that booking will only be confirmed once advance is deposited to the company bank account. The same can be sent for your reference. Despite which you had chose to leave the same to the last moment and when the same was not available you now tell us if room is not provided you will tarnish our image on social media. It's really sad to note that a reputed company like yours uses such tactics to harass the hotelier.

It was a one night stay at Nirvana. Pleasant and calm. The pool is very neat and tidy.No baby pool but the depth is around 5 feet. The place has a nice view of a small lake behind the hotel and the staff is very friendly. They gave us the contact numbers for scooter hire which was good.

It was a homely stay. Service is excellent. We got here something extra without asking. Food service in room, morning tea, etc., made our stay really special. Hotel setting is also very scenic. Really worth my time and money.

Superb location is the first thing I would say about this hotel. We checked-in to the hotel late in the evening, however the check-in procedure was simple. The property looked decent and clean with restaurant and small swimming pool by its side on the ground floor. It has 2 floors however there is no lift facility available. The location of the hotel is slightly isolated so it would be convenient only if you have your vehicle. However, the location is superb, just along the back-waters. As it was dark while we checked-in, we couldn't see around, but during the morning, the location seemed very nice and serene. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The owner handed-over a leaflet with sight-seeing locations and restaurants to visit, which was helpful. They have a free Wifi, but we never used it. The food at restaurant was good. The breakfast had idli, vada, dosa, bread-butter-jam etc and was decent. We had a problem with hot water, as we did not have hot water in our bathroom, however the staff were very good and got us 2 buckets of hot water. Overall, nice hotel with good service.

Visited Mahabalipuram last week and booked this Hotel. Location is kind of isolated near to seashell museum. (mahablipuram itself is a small town - so you cannot complain much). They don't have proper parking facility - you have to park your car outside the gate. Looks like this hotel is not fully functional - still some construction work is going on, hence noisy. We had some trouble in getting running hot water. Staffs are helpful. Wifi was good.They have some common area and the view was good. Haven't tried any food from there so not sure about their menu\rates. They have a swimming pool and was well maintained. Overall just an average hotel in a small town - mahabalipuram Cheers!!

Can’t praise the staff and manager too much, had quite a problem with a pick pocketing horror, but these guys made such an effort to make our holiday special! Food is good, service great, a little out the way but with great advice from the team you can reach all sites of interest without breaking the bank, hotel is upgrading itself. Would I come back? Yes most definitely!
