I have stayed 2 times here in this hotel. I can say this is an average budget hotel. Washrooms are bit old but room is fine. Most importantly hotel is just besides the temple which gives feel good factor. Rest staff is good and cooperative. .

No hot water...toilets are not maintained well. Bed sheet were torn and not clean. Very close to temple and agni theertham. Below average experience. Pls make it as your last option. Opt for ttdc tamilnadu hotel instead.

It is located near to Temple. No restaurant and average rooms. Only few A/c rooms which is not clean and neat. Car parking is okay now. Just few meters away from West tower gate. No lift. Ground floor always noise.
