Rayas Grand, Kumbakonam
23-25, Head Post Office Road Near Holy Mahamaham Tank West Bank, Kumbakonam
I had been with my family to Kumbakonam to visit the temples and to visit Velankanni 2 months ago. We came to know about the Rayas Grand through a family friend and also looked at the website to know more about the hotel. We booked a room there. It was a pleasant stay, that me and my family would always remember. My son who is 8 years old, still relishes the 3 days of memory and wants to stay in that hotel whenever we visit Kumbakonam again. Even to reach the hotel, they called us to confirm the time of our arrival and guided us with directions to the hotel. The rooms were quite spacious and nice with comfortable beds & furniture and the ambience was really good. Few aspects all of us in the family liked in Rayas are a) clean and hygienic environment - The room, bath & toilet, the common areas - corridor, lifts, reception every place was clean and had a fresh and welcoming look. b) kind and courteous staff - every staff member that we met - the person at the reception or the room service guy, everyone was courteous and ready to help the guest. This definitely made us feel comfortable and at home. c) The restaurant was too good- quite clean and had a wide variety of foods to chose from. The food was quite tasty and at the same the price was very nominal. I would recommend Rayas to my friends and relatives.
We have stayed in all of their properties - Rayas, Rayas Annexe, Rayas Grand. All of them are good and especially the GRAND has a star quality standards. My entire family opts to stay only at Rayas Grand that too only in the SUITE as its more spacious and facing the TANK. Clean rooms, and in particular the SHOWER is too too too good. In-fact I asked the duty manager how they maintain that shower pressure part and he explained nicely. Very nice team and they have a 100% Veg restaurant, which is good as well. I certainly would recommend this group to anyone who wishes to come to Kumbakonam and wishes to stay. My best wishes to the owners and their team to maintain the property in the best way as always.
