Review is based on overall inventory of hotels in Chidambaram. Since it's quite low ,hence service in most of the hotels is not as good as in ,say Madurai or Rameswaram . This hotel is situated quite near to the railway station and about 1.5 km from the famous Thillai Natarajar temple . Rooms are okay . They didn't provide remote of the air-conditioner despite request . Who does that ? Well , sure enough , they need to learn the basics of customer service . They have a restaurant but closed now for renovation. So ,one needs to go out and walk a km or so for meals .
Booked this hotel online going by the photos and above average rating by fellow travelers. We booked 2 twin sharing rooms for 2 nights and here is our experience: Pros: Breakfast is great. They take time to serve but the breakfast is worth the wait. Hot water was available round the clock in both the rooms we booked. Cons: Shockingly filthy bath rooms. Photos attached. I judge a hotel by the bathroom and this one was not even upto Sulabh Sauchalay standards. Please take a look at the photo upload. The reputed travel site which I used to book the hotel defaulted the payment to "pay at hotel" which meant that I had to pay the tariff at the hotel using the same credit card that was verified online during booking. But surprisingly the hotel does not have a card machine or is…
Stayed for 2 nights. In # 204 for one night and in #202 for the second. Room is ok; neat; clean sheets; toilet is functional with hot water- but AC did not function. Next morning, the Manager changed our room and AC was super cool! Balconies facing railway station are cosy! Morning was beautiful wth cool breeze ! This place is good for peaceful & laid back stay , without expecting too much! Also good for emergencies, when other hotels are full. Breakfast is complementary- for two; had to pay nominal fare for third person. Morning coffee is good! One of the oldest hotels. Next to Rly station. A kilometre from Temple!
Staff are good and cooperative ,but with only one boy the service is delayed.food average.coffee not good.very near to railway station.transport is a problem.they arranged for cab for sight seeing.mani the driver cum owner is just professional.we do not get any information about the temples much.other wise he is ok.we feel the price is on the high side for cab as well as room rent.
The hotel is good but less maintenance. The hotel location, appearance, building all are very good. but there is no maintenance in bath room fittings, water heater not working and AC not working. They are arranged to take bath in another room. If the three maintenace works will be done this hotel may be a perfect hotel. The staffs are kind and cooperating. Good location. Near by to Railway station and also walkable distance to Bus stand.
