We spent a very relaxing 2 days at the Ideal River Resort. The room was very comfortable, the resort facilities mostly top class and the restaurant fabulous. The resort is located about 8Km out of Tanjore, which enables it to avoid the noise and bustle of town, but means that you need a car if you want to do anything...

This place we really liked. The staff were great, the food very enjoyable and the grounds were beautiful (the kitchen garden tour is really quite interesting). The only drawback when we were there was that the river, well, wasn't. It's been very dry in Tamil Nadu and the water had mostly vanished, leaving just a few pools behind. The room...

We liked everything: spacious room, with you both sides on greenery, great swimming pool again surrounded by greenery, exquisite restaurant - one of the best we had in India and great service. At the reception, Brindah and Pria were remarkable: they managed to arrange transfer to Kodaikanal, helpful with visiting the city and the temples and everything else needed or...

We were switched to this hotel by our tour company, when our intended hotel received terrible reviews. With only a few days notice we were lucky to find this hotel. It's out of town location was probably the reason that accommodation was available at short notice. It is quite a drive from the city and accessed by narrow road along...

Lovely friendly hotel some miles outside of Thanjavur. No problem finding taxis from town to the resort. Happened to be there near the end of the tourist season. So hardly any other tourists! Spacious room with lovely patio. Attentive staff, beautiful vegetable garden that produces vegetables for dinners. Quiet. No water in the river but nice views just the same....

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the site is attractive but there is a serious downside: the hotel is out of town, in fact very isolated and fairly expensive yet it does not offer a free shuttle service into town or to the railway station, although that was implied in the Le Routard guidebook; in fact to make matters...
