Away from the highway and nestled in one of the nondescript bylanes of Tiruvannamalai, Rainbow Guest house is true to its name with all the bright hues on its façade. Surrounded by more colourful low rise buildings, green fields and facing the hills, the guest house has an excellent location and is a short walk away from all the ashrams and temple. While most of the rooms face the hills, the common areas offer lovely views of the surroundings and are an ideal place to read a book or sip some filter coffee. The place offers rooms with single beds, twin beds, deluxe rooms and a large apartment. All the rooms have attached baths. The rates start from INR 600 per day and come with all the basic amenities. They also offer Wifi in common areas and parking facility.
What I loved:
Location: Location is definitely one of the highlights of this guest house. The serene surroundings is apt for a relaxed stay.
Rooms: The rooms and baths are clean and well maintained.
Common areas: The corridors have hammock chairs and the views are absolutely lovely. They also have an open terrace on top.
Hosts: The hosts who stay on the ground floor are extremely friendly and always ready to help the guests.
What I did not like:
Kitchen: The guest house lacks a kitchen and hence does not provide breakfast, short eats or beverages. However, there are restaurants nearby.
