Best Location with good service & quality food

5.8/7
Posted 28 Apr, 2015

My stay at this hotel was good and the hotel was located conveniently and best. The appearance of the hotel was good. Check-in and checkout process was done on time. The service provided was very good. The room allotted was spacious but cleanliness was not maintained. The wash room was clean and there were amenities but not that good in working condition. We had nature view from the room. I took veg item from the hotel and the quality was good. We don't know about the activities are available in this hotel. Overall, the destination was very good. I had been for religious purpose with my family.

Well maintained rooms; helpful staff

4.8/7
Posted 20 Sep, 2014

Hotel was good and my experience was good there. It was easily accessible. Booking was done through online. Staff service was good and their behaviour was helpful and friendly. From outside, it does not look good and from inside it was okay. Veg food was provided by them. I was happy with it. Food was good. No activity was there. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers. Room was spacious. It was also maintained. I visited there with my friends for relaxation. Hotel's location and appearance was average. Booking and front office service was below average. Staff service was good. Room facilities were also good. Food and drink were very good. Activities were average. As a tourist destination, Kumbakonam is excellent.

Old lodge close to temples

4.8/7
Posted 9 Aug, 2016

Chose this lodge based on its vicinity to temples and Mahamaham tank. It is a old lodge but has a plenty of parking place at the back. Entrance to the lodge is quite narrow. It has a Non veg restaurant in front & a Veg restaurant at the back and is inconspicious. Rooms are average & better to take AC rooms so that it can obscure traffic noise. Toilet is reasonably good with a Geyser fixed. Staff are friendly and service is good. Veg food is average.

Value for money; staff not well-trained

4.4/7
Posted 8 Jan, 2015

The hotel per say is good and is aimed at budget travellers. This is not the first time we have stayed here. Rooms are neat and clean. Location is ideal to move around. Tariff is competitive and value for money. Front office staff is helpful and they readily arranged for our moving around to various pilgrim places . . All this is wasted by extremely poor quality of service. We were made to wait for close to half an hour each time for supply of amenities and water. You need to remind them at least 3 to 4 times. On top of it the chappies bring what is not wanted. Quality of food and beverage is awful and highly priced. We were eating out every day including breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, etc. We have been seeing this situation during our three visits to the hotel. They do not seem to care since business is plenty aided by close to 100% occupancy rates There is visibly severe shortage of staff. One reason could be lack of availability of trained man power. Another reason could be they do not pay well.

A very good hotel in star grade

7.0/7
Posted 29 Oct, 2013

Very very good hotel with clean and neat rooms. Very good room service. Affordable cost. Opposite to maha maham tank. Pure veg food. A very good hotel in star grade. Kumbakonam is a religious place and even said as temple city, its has many old and new temples but the town is still under development process, this is a luxurious hotel in the heart of the city.

Nice stay at worthy penny

5.4/7
Posted 21 Oct, 2013

Kumbakonam is a religious place and even said as temple city, its has many old and new temples but the town is still under development process, there is not much luxurious lodges in that area with good amount of amenities. Its comparatively best according to my view. It has a good stuff of amenities with 24 hours room service and good room service and good travel desk indeed.

Great place, great location, great service.

6.4/7
Posted 9 Oct, 2011

Great place, great location, great service. We stayed in the new Raya\'s Annex-1, which appeared better than the old one. Friendly staff, ample parking. No restaurant in this building, but you need to cross a busy street and have food in their main/old building. Room service available though.

Had a lot of apprehensions about quality of hotels...

5.4/7
Posted 29 Jun, 2011

Had a lot of apprehensions about quality of hotels in small towns - just picked up this hotel name from TripAdvisor. My earlier experiences of picking hotels at very small towns from some internet site have not been very satisfactory. But we were pleasantly surprised - the service was good, the hotel was decent. The front desk was quite helpful in arranging transport, with everything getting into the hotel bill - unlike the experience reported by another person in this review. The only dissatisfaction I had was on the quality of the restaurant - could have been better with more menu choices, better timings and cleaned more frequently. But Kumbakonam being a small town, possibly the quality of restaurants is driven by demand and the demographic spread of visitors. I have to repeat - the front desk service was very good, rooms were quite clean, bathrooms decently sized, and nothing to complain about except that internet access can be expensive! The location is good - not far from bus and rail stations. The hotel is not centrally air-conditioned - they have the traditional window air-conditioners. They seem to be well maintained, as the noise levels were low - that was one more of my apprehensions. The bathroom had a large geyser ( 35 l ?)- and the control is left to you. so you have the option of 24 hour hot water - which is usually not needed at all in this town. The room we were in had no view - we were not particular and did not ask if there were rooms with a view. I do not see a scope for a room with a view, considering the location of the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance from the famous mahamaham pond, but does not seem to be within walking distance from the famous temple - but I could be wrong there, as I did not actually try at all!
