Arrived at the hotel early evening and were quickly checked in. The hotel’s main area is a converted house at the top of a hill with rooms and the restaurant in separate buildings down the slope. Lots of peacocks are around. Our room was a little way from reception but was well placed with a beautiful view over the town...

The hotel is up a long drive at the top of a hill. We were quickly checked in and given our room key. The rooms are in small blocks around the grounds. Our block had 4 rooms and ours was on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the city. The grounds are attractive and have many peacocks roaming freely....

Stayed again, since my kids insisted to stay there. Its 2 hour drive from Keelakarai (my home town). City View rooms are spacey for a small family. Great view. Last time tried food, very expensive and too small portion. This time skipped food. Breakfast spread, very average for a 5 star hotel. Management should look into it. Stay there, eat...

This hotel complements the aura of a temple town. Built on a mountain surrounded with forest supporting rich biodiversity. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. We liked the personal garden behind our room where peacocks came every day(one of the best part of stay). Restaurant is also very good with nice food. More importantly they are ready to make any...

Old hotel on 64 acres of land and rooms in the midst of thick foliage with a muster of peacocks which is complete treat to your eyes. The rooms are very spacious . Service is unlike other Taj properties which is slow and has a NO for an answer.
