      Comfortable and good location, but...”

      Location. Location. Location.

      If you've been looking online for accommodation in Chidambaram, reading reviews, you know your options are not extensive, so everything here should be read in that context. The Grand Park is a decent option if you're coming the Chidambaram to visit the fabulous Nataraj temple, as the temple is a very short walk away. The positive, beyond location, is that the staff is very helpful and eager. The negative all fall into under the aforementioned cover of the property apparently still being under construction. The room I was in, while actually very attractive in intent and decor, lacked many finishing details, making it look a bit shabby and unkempt—even though from a housekeeping perspective is was clean. There was no screen nor window in the bathroom window, just some slats, allowing in mosquitos. If the door to the bathroom was shut tightly it mitigated this somewhat. The toilet refused to flush at least half the time, instead running slightly constantly (plus it's an in-wall unit so you can't just open it up jiggle the flapper and solve the problem). There is no restaurant at the moment, but the staff said they could get me food, though I didn't avail myself of this. There is complementary breakfast, which looks like they bring in, calling you when it's ready, and serving it sort of cafeteria style. It's excellent standard South Indian breakfast fare. If coming back to Chidambaram I'll consider staying here again, but I hope the construction is completed, the design details obviously there are polished up, and the possibility that's present in the property is realized.

      Stay closer to the Temple ”

      This property is very close to the temple. Rooms have good space but needs more maintenance. Food served in the restaurant is just average. Better restaurants are available outside the hotel. It has adequate car parking facility. The staff are just ok. The only advantage is that it is closer to the Chidambaram Natarajar temple.

      No direct sunlight or window for fresh air. Close to Nataraja temple. Check in time 10 pm and check out before 12 pm is convenient but staff will argue for 12 noon check in and agreed after showing booking voucher. There are many better Hotels in Chidambaram with 24 Hrs check in time for same price.

      Good hotel near Nataraja Temple”

      I can give the plus and minus. Minus: - Entrance view gives a demolished building look, but renovation is going on, so no need to worry. - AC was not up to the mark. Plus - Very close by to Nataraja temple - Lot of good restaurants, shops are closer to this place - Rest room was neat and clean - A decent hotel - Good and safe parking facilities - Very responsible security and parking staff

      the standard of repair and comfort was poor”

      nothing was great, Only the reception staff were friendly & helpful

      we were unhappy. We will not stay at this hotel, if we visit Chidambaram again. Many matters need to be replaced and or repaired. The shower taps kept falling down. Despite our repeated complaints nothing was done. The hot water mixer was not working properly. The water drainage was not flowing properly in the bathroom. The floor level had been badly tiled. The WiFi worked intermittently in the reception area only.

      Would not recommend for family”

      Though the hotel is in great place just beside the temple entrace, it needs general overall cleanings and upliftment. I guess most hotels in chidambaram are low in cleanness. The room was not cleaned and hallway towards room was dirty too. I would not recommend this to others and look for newer hotels which may not be this bigger.

      Hotel is very old and don’t get cheated by the pics posted.. we get hot water all day and has a covered car parking.. that is the only positive I saw in this deal. Very poorly maintained and saw bed bugs in the room which we were allocated. Takes hardly 6 mins to reach temple by walk.. Not worth the money that I have spent.. (Rs 1800/-) Would give 2* for cleanliness 1* for ambience 3* for service 4* for locality

      This hotel is easily accessible to the temple and the main areas. The hotel is under renovation and the rooms they provided was not that good and room service was provided by just one person for all the rooms. Over all the hotel stay was not a great experience. But we enjoyed the temples & Pitchavaram back waters. Food: Opposite to this hotel there is a good vegetarian restaurant Hotel Sri Krishna Vilas which provides very decent break fast, lunch & dinner..Other Good restaurant is Palagaram which is around 1.5 Km from this hotel.

      Food, Easy access

      Not a good hotel if you are opting for long stay, if you are going for Business / studies (@ Annamali university), The hotel has many issues, not clean, not hygienic, communication gap between department, water taps are leaky - maintenance team does even bother to rectify it, need to adjust with it - assuming that as artificial fountain. A old man @ night for room service not even to bother my requests, if I ask for towel he was bringing from next room used towel, if requested to clean the room after reaching hotel he says just now I also started duty you need to wait. The hotel guys even the turn of Wifi Internet frequently when asked they mentioned as some problem in internet, and Wifi is available only in lobby for rooms no signal. Everything is bad other than the Veg restaurant in ground floor, in which morning south India break fast was awesome. I made 2 bookings one for 5 days and one for 8 days, so lucky I was to give a break to this hotel and cancelled my 8 day bookings in Agoda, I shifted to good hotel (recently new hotel) next to bus stand. I recommend some local health inspector to check the hygienic of this hotel regularly, first day I got body allergy

The curtains are torn and do not cover the entire window. The towels and lenin provided were soiled and tattered. The staff provided better towels and lenin after I complained. There is no refrigerator or sofa as shown in the website. There is only a trickle coming from the shower, the tiles are broken. The door mat was the dirtiest I have ever seen.

      Poor maintenance ”

      I booked 4 air conditioned rooms for my family and extended family for a temple visit. All rooms were pathetic and lack basic amenities; in one room the toilet flush was broken and we were asked to use a bucket to collect water and pour into the commode to flush, in one too the plumbing was leaking so much you cannot take a shower, in one room the air conditioner was not working and they had only one remote to adjust temperature. In one of the rooms we had a squirrel running in the ceiling which my family thought it was a rodent in the room. I booked online falling for the pics of the hotel, probably they had taken them when it was new. The property lacks maintenance and not clean or hygienic. The only thing I can say is the location and the staff who I feel really sorry for as they have to take the blame. I will never stay here again.
