Good Eco hotel. ”
This property is one of the good Eco hotel .perhaps this is my fifth visit. Very good atmosphere Excellent staff. Good food. Very cooperating staff too. Good chef. Clean modern kitchen. Now in house massage centre is an improvement. Still room and bath room can be more clean and neat. Plug points are in short supply . Tv fridge set top box all in one point mant time either of them is not working. Unless you repeatedly ask they won't give hand towel. Food is pricey.
Would definitely stay again.”
Pleasant helpful staff. Rural, quiet and peaceful setting with spotted deer, green parrots and old cars and artefacts including a palanquin from colonial times. Old, beautifully renovated buildings with modern comforts. Very good South Indian cuisine. Only let down was the washroom facilities in the dining area.
Kumbakonam - India”
A very good experience ! The staff was really nice and the food amazing ! We like the originality of the place.
Old Junkyard property with ZERO Service”
Pros: - online prices reasonable - some really quirky antiques on display Cons: - service non-existent. Really :( - dusty rooms, toilets not fully clean - ancient, non-functional fixtures - switches difficult to reach, poorly planned layout of rooms - tons of old furniture, pictures, toys, souvenirs, documents, etc. displayed randomly, without taste and thought - location not convenient for easy access to nearby attractions - idiotic list of activities
Great hotel. Eco hotel and good location. Different to most hotels..”
Enjoyed the village setup. My wife loved the place. Peaceful. May not be liking for some people. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the animals. Cons: Not enough power points for the facilities provided. Example 3 power points used for TV, set top box and insect repellent. Charging phone will require one to be disconnected. Found 2 or 3 dead cockroaches every morning in the room. Poor WiFi service in the room. Would have preferred bit more modern bathroom
If you are looking for hotels with an ancient feeling then this is the place to reside. The structure is very traditional and it gives you a feeling of the past. The premises were beautiful with many sculptures and raindeers. The staffs were all extremely pleasant. The room was very clean. The electricity went off and came back a couple of times, but i guess that could be considered as going back into past time. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting Kumbakonam.
Be cautious! Hidden charges”
I selected one King size bed room when booking but they will allocate different room ,even asking also no change .. When I am booking they charged in dollars where extra charges are included 😡, Especially room no 401 is not good ,AC working is very bad,full of lizards no need of alarm in morning full time lizard sounds .., cockroach also there In reception they told automatic 10 A.m checkout ,extra charged for 1 hour without prior information In restaurant food is not up to mark,but prices are more expensive Overall bad experience.....,.....
Not value for money”
Place is decent, I've not really found some thing very eco friendly sort of. Good place to see the olden village set-up which is lost in urbanization. There is difference in the way they treat guest depending on various factors. I've not found even the staff that customer friendly.
A heritage experience”
It's not so much a hotel stay then it is an experience. We can highly recommend this resort. It's beautiful, suffused with culture and tradition. The location is amidst lush green and quiet, with an interesting museum, lots of animals and an excellent breakfast.
Staff who cheats”
We wanted to visit the 9 temples got a wrong advise as 2 days however we completed by evening. We were charged more km as they did not take signature for opening and closing km. However clarified and got our money We broke a small clay covering which would not have costed more than 1500 they charged us 3000 It’s a fantastic place except for the staff who was dealing with us these kind of staffs will pull down the hotel if management does not look into
We went with family and this was a perfect place. Kids even got to learn a things and have fun. They have deer, swans, ducks etc as well as a nice museum. Takes you back to olden times. Ambience is fantastic and well maintained. Very courteous and helpful staff. You need a car to travel around.
Great for a quiet break from township bussle”
Great area to wonder around. Owner takes great pride in his extrodinary collection of artefacts. Well appointed rooms. Great food at good price. Staff are good and offer great welcome but housekeeping letthe show down for us. We had to nag everyday for housekeeping
Dirty hotel with overpriced rooms. Heritage hotel? Nope, it's FAKE and RIP OFF hertiage hotel! ”
Arrived at the hotel. No welcome greeting from the hotel. Not even standard "namaste" mentioned nor said. Staff were disinterested and gave us awful rooms. In one room, one bed was covered lots of blood splattered, and the bed sheet was completely old and torn literally! I guess that this "heritage" hotel tried to pass it off as old materials to live up to its "heritage" reputation. No one in their sane mind to sleep in dirty and unhygenic bed with torn bed sheet. Furthermore, I checked bathroom and guess what? More blood splatters all over place and on shower screen. Buckets were full of rust. Come on, Indeco, dont be cheapskate with materials and stuff especially when you charge premium price for rooms! The food from Hotel restaurant is disgusting as it contained few bugs. I complained to waiter and manager about it and I wanted a fresh food without bugs as replacement. They refused as they said that it is part of "heritage" experience! Failed to see why it's highly rated. AVOID!!
When we entered this place, we had WOW feeling. The place was very close to nature and lot of animals were roaming in place. There were notices everywhere in hotel area about not disturbing lizards / small insects since they believe the place belongs to them. Only few things to highlight: 1. The place is little far from city but its worth it since its very close to nature 2. There is no proper accommodation for drivers (if you have drivers)
Best environment, lovely staff but ordinary rooms.”
Lovely environment with a village feel, including deer, cows, ducks, etc. Staff were lovely too. However, the cottage like accommodation leaves a lot t be desired, as they include gaps around doorways that allow mosquitoes in which makes for a disturbed sleep, and the odd dead cockroach around the place.
below average experience. Stayed for one night with .Room was alright but food and service pathetic”
We had stayed here about 3 years ago hence booked again with friends . The experience this time was not good . Room service and restaurant struggled and failed to provide basics like morning tea/coffee. Both arrived cold to our room and after repeated calls were replaced with something that tasted like neither. Breakfast at the restaurant was equally disappointing. Have never eaten such tasteless and even undercooked South Indian food in the heart of south India. The new management seems to have run down the place. Hard to recommend this place to others now.
Good place to stay if you are seeing the temples and UNESCO heritage sites all around the hotel. Good food, great ambience, friendly staff. Very interesting for people who love antiques, heritage and history. 3 stars given not given negatively, but because the is a score for improvement.
Stay at Swamimalai Indeco”
The place is well maintained and had a nice homely feeling. The artefacts at the location is a good collection. Cons; At breakfast time the staffing seemed a little less. The write up in places around the property seem to be fading.
Good place but some degradation from prior visits”
Good location Preservation of historical look and feel and animals being taken care of in the property are big pros Its a good place for the rural location and visitors to the temples in the area. Cons: Front desk staff is no longer as friendly and customer service focused as they used to be. Make sure your air conditioner is working before settling into the room - ours was not and they kept saying it will eventually work and then tried an hour of debugging before we had to force them to switch us late at night. With young kids this was a major inconvenience
Must Visit place in Kumbakonam”
This is a must visit place for all travelers to Kumbakonam. They preserved our Heritage and you are sure to feel nostalgic, if you have seen any of them items there before. You can feel the presence of Kanchi Paramacharya and his blessings at this place. We were there only for one night. But it took couple of hours to experience this place, inspite of being on a tight schedule to leave early morning. Recommend this place to anyone who want to experience Hindu heritage.
