Occupied Family Room. Room is neat and spacious to accommodate 4 persons with one King Size bed and two single beds. No lift facility is available for this building – 2 floors (this was informed while booking). Reasonably priced.

Air-condition:
The split A/c is not sufficient for the room and the noise from the A/c unit in our room disturbed us throughout the night.

Parking:
Parking is real challenge. A security guard is posted to regulate the vehicle movement but someone’s vehicle damaged our parked car and we did not get a responsible reply from the management/staff.

Payment:
The reception staff requested me to pay an advance while I checked in and informed that the balance could be settled through credit card at the time of check-out. While checking out, they insisted on cash payment. They informed that the card-swipe device was not working. After my several requests, they accepted my credit card (using the “so called not working” device).

Whenever we go to Chidambaram, we have stayed in this hotel. We have seen it age, it has not aged well. But what remains unchanged it is food, the biryani is out of the world. About the hotel, rooms can be old, may have some broken fixtures here and there, hygiene is not great, plastic cups for coffee which look more brown than white are some such things but we ignore for its close to temple, and biryani.

I had a meetup with my college friends recently and we stayed here for few days. From warm hospitality to well-maintained rooms, this hotel offers a delightful stay. The staff’s friendliness and attention to cleanliness stood out. Modern amenities, including free internet access, add to the comfort. Conveniently located near the bus stand, Vandayar Hotel is a top choice for travelers.

Booked Executive room over phone. Offered only superior room on arrival, as Executive rooms were blocked for MD for a domestic function. Soiled Bed spread and pillow covers. Room appeared like not cleaned after check out by earlier guest. Damped towels were provided. Replaced on request and informed dampness due to previous night rain. Bathroom need renovation. No exhaust fan in bathroom. No house-keeping person was available on check out, even after informed well in advance. Breakfast is good. Overall experience - Deteriorating service quality and need much improvement. Not at all worth for money.

This may be the best hotel in Chidambaram but that’s not saying much. As other reviewers have written, it’s a bit old and worn; the rooms get lots of street noise; many of the rooms have bugs; and the bathroom has now divider or curtain for the shower. Rooms are pretty unattractive too. The breakfast is ok; nothing to write home about. Dinner options are fine. It is what it is. At least it’s only a 5-7 minute walk to the east gate of the temple.

The whole stay was a terrible experience. The hotel was smelly and dirty. The bed was not made and the room was clean. The bedsheets had blood stains and we had to get the staff to change with the manager present. The cutlery and utensils had stains.

We spent one night there during our visit to the temples and official work at Annamalai university. As soon as you enter the lobby, the place stinks - not able to say what it smells of exactly but similar to old clothes in a closed cupboard with no aeration. The room sheets were stained and no hot water. Will never stay again

Hotel was not maintained properly, rooms are in bad condition. NO Wifi in rooms. Too costly for what they serve we pay. Cleanliness is a big question mark??? Room size is very small. One good thing is the location. Breakfast was average.
