It is an awesome place and location. So close to the major visiting places and the bus stop. Its on the main road but yet so quiet and calm once you get to the hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Food is good for the price. ATM's are just outside the hotel and the staff are friendly and good.

We only had two meals here, so don't know anything about rooms, room service, etc. Food was surprisingly good. And the prices surprisingly reasonable. Cheaper than the shady seashore place we'd eaten the night before. For lunch we had fish curry and fish fry. For dinner we had fish tikka and a whole fried Snapper with fried rice. Everything was...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days. Location is prime. All sightseeing places are in same vicinity. Some of them are walking distance. This hotel is one of the few star category hotels in mahabalipuram. Rooms are decent. We need to change our room. But the reception staff was courteous to upgrade us. Hotel has a nice swimming pool.... More

Was a decent place, no surprises that I received. Right in the middle of town. Friendly staff . The restaurant service can be improved and the aircon in the main room was struggling. Can improve the room furnishings in a big way

Room was clean, comfortable, view over the swimming pool which was kept very clean, excellent buffet breakfast included in the price of the room. Ideal for relaxing after hard travelling. Centrally located in the town so that all the attractions are within easy walking distance.

Room was neat n smells good. Windows lack locksMosquitoes were a problem. But that's everywhere in Mahabalipuram, not a local issue. Reasonable... More
