Reviewed 23 April 2013

Very average, rooms are basic, not great. some staff helpful and some not so helpful. close to railway station you keep hearing the trains honking away and disturbing your sleep.
housekeeping could be better, we had 2 rooms, 1 room could not be locked and the other did not have proper lighting. transit hotel fit for a nights stay. restaurant is just fine not great. a bit pricey for the facilities and do not expect big things.

Room Tip: check with the room boy for a room that does not face the railway station, trains keep honking and d...

This is an average hotel located little away from the bus stand and it was not an easy to locate the hotel if you are new to the place. We just walked-in to the hotel and the welcome at the reception was average. We had booked 2 rooms and the room facilities are decent though. Due to the ongoing power cut, there are certain limitations for hot water and unfortunately it was complete black out on that particular day. It has a restaurant and not much varieties and i would strongly recommend to look for restaurants near by. They have provided complementary break-fast with less options and the food taste and quality was well below average. They try to provide service but their staffs are not trained enough to meet the service expectations. I would recommend this hotel selection as a second option. Though they say Wi-Fi will be available but it was not correct. They have a separate room for accessing internet which is very much disappointing.

Room Tip: Lot of power cut and current back-up issues, request to check and confirm before check-in. Please re...

The Grand Park at Chidambaram.
Good value for money. Walk able distance to the temple. Small comfortable rooms, newly built.Clean washrooms, Good service, friendly staff. Complimentary breakfast from 8-10 AM. AC Deluxe was priced for Rs.1500 and little plus for kids and inclusive of taxes. Mineral water and daily tamil and English newspaper was supplied. We checked in at 12.30 night, staff were very co-operative.Check out time is 24 hrs from check in time. Good experience over all.Stayed for 2 nights.Double bed/TV/AC/Fan/Closet.They should place a garbage bin in every room and try to emphasize on cleanliness a little more.(we had to ask for bed sheet changes/towels and clean up service)(maybe because we were out most of the time).

Over all stay at the hotel is good

However, the management not honoured their written commitment of supplying mineral water.

They must have supplied mineral water to the four rooms we have booked and occupaid. But, I have to make a big issue to collect back my Rs 60 which they have charged us for supplying two one liter water bottles during breakfast for four people for two days.

Stayed here for one night in January 2013 with family. There are just two decent hotels in Chidambaram. This one and Sharadaram.

Pros:
- It is located away from the town centre. So it is much quieter than Sharadaram.
- Staff is courteous
- The place is cheap.
- Acceptable level cleanliness.

Cons:
- It is located away from the town centre. So it is a stiff walk if you want anything.
- Food here is bad. Food in Sharadaram is way better.
- It is bang next to the railway station. So the occasional train arrival and departure can be noisy.
- Rooms are small.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms before staying. Make sure geyser. TV remove etc. are working, windows can be shu...
