I had some of the best Indian food at this lovely resort--with some of the nicest staff. The setting is unbeatable...and the only reason that I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the room furnishings are out of date and need a makeover. That said, I would love to return.

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel while visiting the Temples near by. The room was good with a view, as we were on top floor but would be better if trees were trimmed The rooms are spacious and have ac but the fridge needed replacing as it seemed not to be working. We enjoyed the choice of food on...

We found it hard to choose a hotel near thanjavur as there were no obviously affordable but interesting hotels , but actually this place was excellent . The room was very basic and the hot water/showers only worked some of the time in our room ( ask about this when you check in - we were in a room at...

We had a really good time. The hotel has bungalows facing the river (which due to a severe drought didn't carry much water so we didn't have to fend off many mosquitoes!!). The bungalows are very spacious and provide everything a European needs to relax after a long day sightseeing. The pool is absolutely huge! We also enjoyed their food,...

The location of this hotel is quite a few kms off the main road along a dirt track beside the river. It is very isolated which is both its best selling point and its downside all at once! It's very rural and peaceful, but impossible to have meals anywhere else, or go out at night. Beers were available but wine...

Our travel agent booked this accomodation for one night on our trip to Thanjavur to see the great Chola temples. We did not know what to expect, except that it was a little outside the city. To get there we had to drive along the bank of the Cauvery river on a bumpy road for about 5 km. So the...

As per our schedule we had to depart from the Ideal Beach Resort at 0830 on 6th Dec . But due to unfortunate demise of Jaylalitha Amma , Chief Minister of Tamilnadu , there was anxiety prevailing throughout the state . Eventually we could leave the Resort at 0930 and reached Ideal Riverview Resort , Thanjavur via Trichy at 1330...

Our idea of a river view is obviously different to the management. Why? There's really not very much of the murky, overgrown river that can be senn from any of the rooms. Our room was quite nice, the service levels were quite mediocre but the food was quite good. The swimming pool was very good.
