The hotel is located opposite the Mahamagam pond which is famous for the annual Maasi Maham festival held in Kumbakonam town.

The hotel is quite old with not so impressive and crowded reception area. Reception staff were so-so, service standard can be improved. The room was quite large and reasonably comfortable for a couple of days stay to explore the nearby temples. The rooms will look better if they replace the flowery quilts or blankets on the bed.

Breakfast not inclusive in package but they have a restaurant on the ground floor serving quite good vegetarian food.

Hotel needs overall upgrading and refurbishment especially the rooms to make it more attractive to foreign tourists.

Date of stay: June 2018

The hotel is economical and good enough in that budget. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is polite and food is average. It is in a good spot in the city to travel to various spots. There aren't many good options in the town otherwise, hence it makes the cut. A no frills (e.g there is a kettle but no tea/coffee sachets) but comfortable stay.

Lovely, clean hotel & probably the cleanest in Kumbakonam. Good, spacious, basement car parking. Bang opposite Mahamagam tank so location excellent. Reception staff very polite & courteous. Self & my uncle's son stayed here. As you check-in the reception staff give you a booklet of temples to visit & also about the navagraha temples to visit and this is extremely useful. The air-conditioning in the rooms was absolutely superb. Bed's were pretty comfortable & give us a good quality of sleep. Toilet was pretty spacious & very very clean. Hot water available at all times. We ordered room service only coffee, and the coffee was really good. Only thing is, the sugar which is given along with the coffee should be in zip lock bags and not served loose, so that the remaining sugar remains hygienic & does not go waste. There is a pure vegetarian restaurant on the ground floor which serves a variety of north indian and south indian cuisine. The quality of food served is very good & it is pretty low cost. It is very easy to get a local taxi to surrounding temples from this place.I just loved my stay here at Raya's Grand & will definitely stay here again only. Hopefully should be back to stay here in a couple of months. Thank you Raya's Grand, Kumbakonam.

Room tip: Choose rooms away from the mahamagam tank, that is on the other side.
