that is the truth-- unbeatable location, bang opposite the railway station. else nothing much to write home about. its the usual kind of hotel, compact rooms, though with plasters peeling off the walls at places and even in the toilet, good air conditioning system, a non-working intercom. And , yes, above all the hotel is very fussy about the check in - check out times. it is a different strokes for different folks policy. if you book on line through a few particular travel sites, its is a 24-hour check in, else it is a 12 to 12 regime. any early check in is charged. so guests pl check with the hotel before booking or checking in to avoid disappointments. the complimentary breakfast is sumptuous, staff polite, yet that touch of hospitality, a welcome feeling for the guests, somehow seems missing. and mind you for a small town the tariff is slightly on the higher side. its not fair to compare hotels but i have always felt and still do that sara regency in chennai road is THE hotel to be in in kumbakonam.
