The personel was very friendly and helpful, true indian hospitality. the dinner was good, but over priced in India, however not really expensive. I...

We went to see the mansion and found that it was maintained well. We did not stay there but were at their other property called chettinad court. The tiles, the chandeliers, the carved doors were all in the local style. We had seen many local masions similar to this place. The long courtyard had paintings of a local saint story...

Very much a mixed bag, but for a hotel that describes itself as luxury, it just isn't up to scratch. Room was clean and nicely furnished, with retro electrics to go with it. Bed was comfy and bathroom spacious, and a/c pretty good (though somewhat dated and noisy). The shower was a trickle (had to resort to bucket and jug)....

The mansion house is amazing a bit like a museum. When you enter it is like stepping into a time capsule it's full of antiquities. Our room was not in the main building and was very quirky with Baco light fitments. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was equally as big as the bedroom but not at all...

It's a beautiful old house that oozes history ....the rooms also have that feel of bygone times...fortunately the rooms have not been modernised ...like the house, they have that feeling of faded glory. The staff were helpful and informative ..the family still live in the house. A large comfortable lounge/reception area to sit in with plenty of books. Food was...

Property is worth Visiting ONCE ,to explore the antique materials used to build this property. Different kinds of Gajalakshmi arts in every room entrance shall be watched.Museum is informative. Swimming Pool is really BAD. SPA service is not available. People of this resort are really good.

The decor is luxurious and the Haveli has a 15 minute video about itself and the area. The staff and food were great. The wifi was ok. No television. A rare opportunity to stay in a real Haveli with much more character than the average hotel.
