We have today stopped off at the inn for some lunch. Everyone was friendly and the food was prepared fresh. The service was excellent and the beer cold!!! The coffee house offers a wide range including Indian,Chinese and continental food. It is situated close to the palace too.

The best part of the Hotel are the people who take care of you - you cannot expect Waiters in Tuxedos and Bellboys with huge moustaches here with their wooden greetings! But what you find is warm, earthly and humble South Indian... More

We inquired about the mansions and after a good courteous dialog, owner offered to give a tour of his... More

Anyway, we were very happy about the small hotel, the rooms were very clean, the owner or General manager was extremely nice and the food was really good. It was just nice... More
