“A very nice retreat from noisy India”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

We stayed two nights after a long drive from Pondicherry. It's a real pearl about 10 km from Tayore.
The food was o.k and every evening during dinner we had life music and also one night two beautiful dancers. It's not cheap, in fact the price is too high by Indian standard, however we felt that after unsatisfied Hotels on our trip, thus was a good choice.

We really wanted to stay here but there were no rooms available. Too bad because the setting was very pretty and the grounds looked well kept. We had lunch sitting by the river side. The food was good, and the view fabulous. All in all, a great place. Try the Mahabalipuram branch too - stayed there once and loved it.

A beautiful garden setting with a stunning pool. Staff very keen to please. Set in a quiet rural semi isolated location with no nearby villages etc. to walk to. Restaurant and food excellent.

Room Tip: An upstairs room would be slightly better with more of the view, otherwise all the rooms seem to fac...

We spent 1 night here. The best thing about the hotel was it's location - peace and quiet (not easily found in this part of the country). The rooms were OK, not great, although from the photos on the website, they look beautiful. We had dinner included in our package, which was OK, not great. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Our of the hotel options available, this is the best way to go.

During our trip round Tamil Nadu we stayed for 2 nights at the end of Nov 2011. Met be friendly staff. Comfortbale room facing river with large bathroom, comfy bed and tea making facilities. Plenty of tonic water her so lots of gin and tonics and other cocktails. The staff were friendlky and helpful and the assistant manager Vaseekaran could not do enough to make our stay as nice as possible. The grounds and hotels are well kept and comfortable. The food is good and the food and drink is reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Ask for river facing room

We would need to start this review by praising the staff of this hotel. Everybody is extremely nice and sincerely cares. When My husband got a little sick during our stay, the staff was full of attention towards him (prepared a "secret tea", accommodated all the food and drinks to help him get better and constantly asked about him).

The room was quite comfortable with a very nice bathroom. We stayed in the new building and while the garden around it was not finished, the new rooms are really worth it.

The food was very good.

In a few words, it is a quite simple place but it feels very comfortable and we are very happy to recommend it to people visiting Thanjavur.

Quiet place, nice setting nearby the river, lovely garden, huge swimming pool.
Rooms are quite spacious, clean and basically decorated (nothing like charming though)
Food was OK; the main problem was that a group (20-30 pers) had just arrived in the hotel and we were imposed a very noisy "concert" during dinner.
Gift shop is a rip-off : divide prices by 2 or 3 !!!
