Good and comfortable stay

Posted 20 Feb, 2017

My stay in the Arunachala Hotel when I had been to Thiruvannamalai during the month of September 2016. It was my personal trip with family. The city Thiruvannamalai was very good because of its weather. The hotel location was good with necessary availables at the nearest. The appearance of the hotel was average. I would rate the front desk staff as good because of their responsive ontime. I booked my room direct at hotel. The services which were provided in the hotel were very good because of quick response and politeness. The rooms at the hotel were average . The food in the hotel was good as we can have so many options as according to the season.

Budget place for longer stay

Posted 18 Feb, 2016

For those who are wishing to go on a pilgrimage to Tiruvannamalai and stay there for a longer time, Arunalaya Residency is a good place. It is evident because you can find even foreigners staying in this hotel. It is a good value for money. There are no pools or other extravaganzas. There are some good balconies with swinging sofas. The look and feel is very good. They have ample space for parking 4 cars inside the premises. Rest have to be parked on the side of the road, which is not an issue because it is a dead end. Access to the hotel is through a narrow lane and one has to be careful driving there. Front office personnels are very friendly. There are no hotels or restaurants inside the premises but good ones are available at a walkable distance. Its proximity to Seshadri ashram, Ramashram and Yogi Ramsuratkumar ashram is a great advantage. It is also not far from the main temple. Getting a three bedroom for a price of INR 900 is not easy in these days. The rooms are clean and well maintained. There is enough privacy and space in most of the rooms. This is not a resort for spending some family time on activities and not a regular hotel or lodge, just in between for long stays.

Luxurious hotel with good facilities, no gym

Posted 9 Dec, 2015

It is very nearer to temple. Just 150-200 mtrs away. Staff Service is very good here. We can book online before going and works all the day. Rooms and its furniture are very luxurious and clean. It suits for high budget people very well. We can get the only veg dishes here. We can't get non-veg dishes. Lift facility is present and this hotel is equipped with an veg restaurant also.. Order food coming at some average time.. Not too late.. Not too early. Room rents are Some what costly.. But for their maintenance, its reasonable. From hotel only, we can get bike and car rentals for outgoing. From hotel, we can get the view of temple and mountain clearly. Special rooms have adjoining balconies to experience the glory of the Arunachaleshwar temple & the sacred mountain.

Nearer to temple and excellent rooms

Posted 26 May, 2015

Hotel is very close to Annamalai temple. It is the best place to stay in Thiruvannamalai. Nice view. Rooms were fine. Though little bit costly, we can satisfy for amenities offered. Food was very tasty especially south Indian food. Both a/c and non a/c rooms are available here. This hotel is very convenient for everyone who is visiting temple.
