I had communicated via email with Raghav to book a room in this hotel. The communication by itself was very pleasant. Our stay there for two days was the best of all the hotels that we had stayed in, right from Tiruchi to Chennai. This hotel was clean, our room was quite spacious and clean as well and the best of all is that the bathroom was also clean. Clean bathrooms seem to be a luxury in Tamil Nadu so it was such a pleasant surprise to find that the bathroom was spacious and clean in Hotel Arunachala. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly and it was also a pleasure talking to the owner Raghav.
However, there is a restaurant at the basement of this hotel. Please do not go there. It's dirty and on the second morning we had gone there for breakfast after our prayers at the Temple and we were served spoilt sambar. We told the owner about it but of course, he did not admit it and said its not spoilt. These people will never admit (that is their character) and we didn't want to argue as it's just no point, so we paid for something that we did not even eat and left. The owner did not even have the decency to say sorry and on top of that could collect the money from us. We then started going to the restaurant nearby Abirami's which was not only clean, it also had very friendly and pleasant staff. The food there was also very good.
