Rooms are big but wardrobes have fungus. Hot water never worked in the bathrooms. Kettle for tea/coffee making not provided although confirmed on phone before our arrival. Most staff only spoke Tamil. Internet was very slow.

We had a get together of 18 of our batch mates after many years and had booked 9 rooms on twin sharing basis. The hotel is just inside a quiet lane and has a serene atmosphere with a lot of greenery. Pool is small but very clean. Rooms are spacious and clean with fresh linen - toilets are big with...

I made a reservation in booking.com to this place. After I stayed there I can say that this place can't be called a resort or an hotel, the most it can be called is a gusthouse The rooms where full of moscitos there was no soap in washroom and the first room I got didn't have hot water. The only...

This is a great hotel, quite basic but is extremely friendly, staff are amazing and help you all the time. Smashing swimming pool, very clean. Food was amazing, there was raita, curry, salad, poppadoms, and even fresh fruit and ice cream for dessert.

Nice hotel with good facility. Large room with good bathroom, though the water was not always hot. The pool looked good though i didnt try it. The staff were friendly and the food was quite tasty. The attractions were quite near to the hotel so it was all easy walking distance. No problem recommending this hotel

A lovely place, close to the centre of Mahabalipurum but quiet and leafy - a real oasis. Easy walking distance to the beach, the Shore Temple and Mahabalipurum hill. Staff helpful, a good sized pool and decent restaurant as well. Would definitely recommend it.

This place's USP is the location. All the sightseeing places are walking distance apart from 5 - Rathas. The rooms are big and have pool view. We stayed when the area was going through very rough storm(Dec'16) and in spite of many difficulties, the staffs did their best for the guests to accommodate all. We could not use the pool...
