Stayed here last week with a group of 8 friends. Very clean and comfortable hotel, very friendly service, great breakfasts and evening meals. I have stayed in other hotels in the area, this is by far the best, and we will be back!

Restaurant-High level, very efficient service, staff well trained, ac running, spotless environment. VERY good food, paneer darbari was reason to pay a visit and no regrets for it. Best food in Tiru we had, the price is corresponding. General feeling-distant and polite but not warm. Wifi only for guests of hotel, so bad luck in restaurant.

Great staff. Hotel and amenities as I expected. Good view of the Arunchala Hill from the hotel. 3km from the Ramana Ashram. Free breakfast. Only thing that could be better is the shower; the water was not hot enough for me.
