Ambiance 8/10 Food 9/10 Service 9/10 Value for money 9/10 Overall 8.75/10 An amazing restaurant, having enchanting ambiance with a pool view and serving mouth-watering food 🥘 . The presentation of the food was excellent 👏🏽, the quantity was good. The restaurant was very hygienic. Calamari fritters: are wonderfully coated in deep fried flour based batter and unique in taste😋. The taste of these calamari 🦑fritters is true to the image of the dish, and you will be left licking 🤤your fingertips once you try this dish for the first time Chicken Drumstick: it was crispy and delicious appetizers🍗 made in perfect way to make delicious chicken coated in a chettinad masala and flavorful marinade, then fried 🐔to perfection. The size of the pieces were small and not worth for the price Prawns 65: which is deliciously fried🍤 with the spices It was crispy but hot 🔥accompanied with lemon 🍋and onion Waiter and manager really polite, attentive and courteous!👏🏽 Overall it’s amazing!

Well, 5 stars is probably a little generous, but when you have an amazing pool, around which the hotel is built and runs, a few short falls can be forgiven. The pool, is large, attractive and well maintained, which seems something of a rarity in Tamil Nadu. You can relax with a cold beer, provided by the ever helpful staff in the pool side restaurant, which also provides lovely light lunches. Most rooms have a balcony area overlooking the gardens and the rooms are generally spacious.The air conditioning was an industrial unit and incredibly noisy, so we went the open window and fan route, but watch out for the mosquitoes, they also seem resistant to mozzi mat machines! Room cleaning was a bit on and off, whilst the internet was very on and off, mainly off. Breakfast was excellent with fresh juices, boiled eggs, omelettes and a good supply of tea and coffee. Would I go back? Yes in a flash.

We have stayed at the Mahabs for two years running. Great staff, best location and care and attention to guests is first class. Rooms are large and clean, it would be a bonus to have a towel rail in the bathroom, but we loved what staff did with our daily clean towels - very creative shapes left on the bed. Choice of buffet or cooked breakfast - excellent.

This hotel is located near the market place so it is easily accessible and the staff is also good.Rooms are good and clean.But the restaurant doesn't offer much options for food, better to explore outside restaurants.Overall it is an average stay.
