I had been to Kumbakonam this weekend with family for visiting the temples there. We stayed in the Raya's Hotel which was very near the Mahamaham pond. The location of the hotel is quite strategic. No one will miss the place as it is in the heart of the temple town.

Though the rooms are not big, one cannot complain too much, especially if you are going to use it only for sleeping in the night. The maintenance is good and clean. Room service is available and good.

There is a restaurant in the hotel, but I did not use it. Only one I entered the restaurant and had some unpleasant smell, so had to get out. But there is no dearth of food availability in Kumbakonam. You have loads of restaurants all over the town. The price is also reasonable compared to other hotels, but in general a bit on the higher side for a not-so-big-town.

The hotel is situated in the middle of city and in surrounding temples are there so that is good and also the hotel services are very good. Nearby there is Mahamam Tank and all types of food is available. The hotel rooms and reception, food accumulations all are good. The service is very good in this city.

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.

The hotel was located within the city. The staff at the hotel were good and friendly. I did not face any problem while check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was average. Room was good but toilet was not maintained well. We had food from outside the hotel because we were outside most of the time. There were no games or any other activities. The hotel stay was average but definitely value for the money. I would suggest the hotel to improve in cleanliness.

My stay was fantastic and my overall experience was just awesome. The location of the hotel was very much convenient and the appearance of the hotel was normal but not so attractive. The staff members at the hotel were courteous and skilled in services and the surroundings were very pleasant. The room was spacious with all the amenities and the food provided was very delicious with lots of varieties both in vegetarian and non-vegetarian. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process and I recommend this hotel to other travellers. The hotel is sure worth for the money.

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 well-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.

It is easy to find the hotel as it is in the heart of the city. Hotel look was good, room was spacious, well-maintained with no view and amenities were working properly. Staff were professional, friendly, service was quick. Both veg and non-veg food was available. There was no delay in check-in/ check-out. Sufficient parking area is there. Wi-Fi should be improved.

There were no activities and there was no help desk facility. Located conveniently and staffs were good, polite and helpful. They provided food, the quality and taste of the food was good. There was a huge parking space was available and there was no issues at the time of check in and check out. Room was good, spacious and neat with AC, TV, and geyser facility in the room. I went here for official purpose and my native place is Tiruppur.

There were no view for the room and the staffs are helpful. They provided sightseeing and it is a recommendable hotel for all the travellers. The hotel was located near to the hotel and it was in a group trip.
