The hotel is nice. Located right opposite to the Raja Gopuram of Annamalaiyar Temple, it is in the prime location of Tiruvannamalai.
Easy to check in, get ready and leave for your darshan/ girivalam and return there. There is car parking available right in the Hotel compound and it is a good thing because you cannot find parking space for your car in such a prime location.
The rooms are neat and clean and very roomy and spacious. The AC is very effective too. The bathroom-restroom is also vast and spacious, was given to us in a neat and clean state. The towel and bedding were also good. Soap was provided. There is a wooden wardrobe, in case your stay is over one day and you need to hang a few clothes.
The service was fairly good. They helped with our bags and the check-in was quick (took only 5 minutes). The booking was very easy too, they had taken my booking on the phone. However, they did not send any sms or e-mail confirmation of the same - which made me call again after two days and re-confirm my booking.
The hotel downstairs is also decent and starts giving coffee from 5:30 am.
The only drawback of the prime location is the very crowded and narrow lane that we must use to leave the hotel. My car got a little scratch at the side from a maneuvering mishap.
Overall - a recommended hotel for families who want to go to Tiruvannamalai and have darshan at the temple.
