Raya's Hotel Reviews
Chose this lodge based on its vicinity to temples amd 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 restuarant in front & a Veg restuarant 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.

The allotted room was good in the hotel. All amenities were available working condition in the room. The activities were not arranged by the hotel. The destination of the hotel was good.

I had visited this hotel with my friends. The money which I paid for the hotel was worth. The transportation facility was not provided by the hotel. The parking facility was there in the hotel. The Wi-Fi facility was provided by the hotel. The room and washroom was maintained neat and clean. The staff's in the hotel were behaved friendly. The best part of the hotel was the service.
Our favorite hotel. Rooms were good. Good ambience. Reception was reasonably good. The plus point is the location of the hotel, near great mahamaham tank. Located in city center. Food was also good. Service was also OK. No attached restaurant or bar facility. But you will get the room service. Overall experience with this hotel was good.
This hotel is near to the lake and it was located in the main city. The appearance of the hotel was good in form the interior and exterior. The staffs were helpful and friendly. The room was spacious, neat and clean. All the amenities were good in condition. I did not observe any of the activities in the hotel. We had a complimentary breakfast in this hotel. I did not observe any of the activities and it also recommend for other travellers.
I like this hotel very much. Good atmosphere. Services in the hotel and rooms are good. Receptionists in the hotel are good response. Nearby temples. Food in the hotel was superb. Everything things regarding this hotel was satisfied. My family members are waiting for the next visit.
The stay was pleasant, good hotel, economical and heart of the city. I liked the hotel with the budget you have paid. Definitely would like to go the the hotel the next time. Staff is good and polite.
During stay found the rooms are small. Service not that appreciative. Staff do not answer you properly. They do not make suggestions on selection of rooms. They only answer your questions in installable manner. During my last trip in June I opted to stay in a different property in kumbakonam. It has appreciable ambience and car parking ample space. Services were good and size of rooms bigger than RAYAS HOTEL and much economical also.
Hey its located near Mahamaham Temple, one of the must visit pilgrim centre for Hindus. Its location is just 20 feet away. I have tasted the Kumbakonam filter coffee, this is the best ever I have ever tasted. The Hotels was in a pleasant environment. The food is good and the dinning is also good. One of the best hotel in Kumbakonam

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.
We stayed for three days from 1st to 4th July,2011. It was very comfortable and the room service was very good. The room was very clean and it was cleaned daily. The news paper was issued daily early morning. The restaurent was very clean and the food items were good. The lift service was working without breakedown. Overall we enjoyed our stay in the hotel and we recommend to others also.
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.
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!
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.
