Magnificent Antique property with lots of old furniture retained. Even the reception area is old style. The rooms are renovated and has a well maintained pool. Good food and good service. Little bit expensive.

What a wonderful hotel and kind staff. It is worth you time and money to visit this place. There is not much to do around, but staying in the hotel is itself is a treat. The hotel is a restored 150 year old home with 25 rooms. Excellent food and Chettinad experience. The staff took special care of everyone.

This is a slightly odd review because I did not stay in the hotel but dropped in when passing on the recommendation of a hotel manager in Thanjavur. We were given such a friendly welcome by the duty manager, Ms Dhurga, who took the time to show us the house and explain the history of the Chettiars that I feel...

A beautiful villa; private, quiet, and spacious. The staff was outstanding - we especially enjoyed Prakash who took us on a lovely walk through the village, and was attentive and helpful throughout our stay. The food was great, pool beautiful - it was a lovely break from the busy cities!

Good place to spend your time with family in the village side of Tamilnadu. Located in a beautiful place with absolutely no sound. You will be taken for a tour through the palace and a guide will explain you about the palace. We spent a day there and the food was truly Chettinad but the service needs some improvement. Overall...

We had the most splendid experience dining at the Chidambaravilas. Special mention has to go to Heeralal who shared menus and helped us select and order dinner from 1 in the noon. He made sure we had a royal welcome when we reached the hotel. 5 star for his hospitality ! Next is Saravanan who did our show around !...
