I and my friend stayed here with our family overnight. Location is good. Rooms were clean. Service is excellent. All the individual rooms were named after Hindu god / goddess and the statue is placed inside each room which adds beauty to room. But just behind the statue I noticed spider web and not so cleaned. AC is available in all rooms. RO+UV water filter is provided, clean towels, water heater (kettle) is also provided. Enough plug points for charging your phones. Room is spacious. I did not notice any insects or cockroaches.

They have even single bed, double bed and suite types. In verandah, many cane swings are placed. (bamboo swing) for you to relax, but the cushions were so dirty, you may not feel like sitting on it. This is one suggestion for the management. Also bedsheet provided is not enough and not so clean. Soap, Shampoos are not provided. (you may need to carry). TV is not available in rooms. For food you need to go out.

Regarding the important point power backup, during power failures AC will not function, but the lights and fans will function as each rooms are powered by individual inverter and battery.

No seperate parking and you need to park just opposite to this property. This place is little inside 3.5 kms from main temple. It is worth the stay and we liked it.

Room Tip: You may choose suite which is on first floor for excellent view of the hill which is opposite to you...

Sunshine was truly a magical experience. The design of the hotel itself and the interior decorating are both top notch.

The staff are absolutely amazing, lovely, warm people that make you feel at home and seem to take a refreshing joy in making your stay enjoyable. A special thank you to Govind and Raju.

The atmosphere of the guesthouse is calm, soothing, a great place to just relax, meditate, take in the moments, and let time slow down. Many come to Tiru for a spiritual experience at Sri Ramana Ashram and elsewhere. Staying at a hotel or in the city would seem to detract from that, but staying at Sunshine seems to not only compliment it, but also accentuate it, while still providing comforts that border on luxury and a sense of having found a local home sweet home.

Room Tip: We had a room on the bottom floor and enjoyed it. There is a better view on the higher floors, but y...

My husband and I were at the start of a 4 month trip around India when we stayed at Sunshine Guest House in April 2014... meeting everyone here (owners, staff and guests) and experiencing real kindness and generosity changed our whole trip around India. The rooms were beautiful and clean, big and bright and we spent every evening watching Arunachala from swinging chairs on the verandah. I have told so many people about this place - thank you so much!

This is an immaculate, well maintained guesthouse in a beautiful, peaceful location. We found it very hard to leave and stayed for two weeks. The veiw of Arunchala is stunning and the guesthouse has a very sacred and tranquil atmosphere.

A few unexpected and happy bonuses;
Every room has a reverse osmosis water filter
Use of a well kitted out shared kitchen is available
Bicycles, scooters and motorbikes are available to borrow without charge
A decent library

Our review would not be complete without a mention of the two wonderful men that run this place. Nothing was ever any trouble for them. They're lovely, friendly and so helpful. We appreciated their delightful conversation, and their relaxed and welcoming hospitality. We would definitely stay again.

One thing that readers may want to know is that the guesthouse is an easy 25 minute walk to the Ramana Ashram. This was fine for us as we borrowed a scooter, and the quiet location away from the main road was great.
