The rooms are clean, the staffs were friendly to me and the service was OK. The private cottage was around Rs. 3000/ day. I don't remember the exact figures. The place is around 1 km... More

What really surprised me about the place is that inspite of this being maintained by the government it was so clean and tastefully decorated. My previous experience in a govt place had made me wary but after reading the reviews and due to lack of places to stay, I chose to stay for a night here and I was very... More

There is provision for parking your cars. The hotel has small park, where the kids can play or check out the many models of the animals (which reside in the... More

Never expected it to be nice and clean especially in a rural district in India. The lodge is away from the high way in a quiet location. The cottages are better than the rooms on the main building. The hotel have a nice garden to sit or stroll in the evening. The food catered here is mostly Indian.

We spent one night here , a total of 15 hrs in one of the rooms in the main building. Location is good , bordering the forest and no noise coming from the main highway. Rooms were spacious and the bed was OK. It had a nice balcony as a plus point. Staff was fine considering its a govt lodge.The... More
