Reviewed 5 January 2017

The positives of this hotel are as follows;
Superb location central to all the sites within a few minutes walk but in it's own compound so very peaceful
Super service at all times
Large room
Excellent pool, very clean and a lovely way to coll down after the sight seeing
Breakfast was very good with a nice choice
Water took a long time to come through but a it was so hot it didn't really matter
Overall a very satisfactory stay and would stay there again

Room Tip: Eat around bus station for authentic and great value. Avoid the beach front rubbish

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.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms best

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 because it was full of leaves due to storm. Stay on upper floor as there might be mosquitoes in lower floors.
Food is good and made to order. They can serve as per your request.
