We stayed here for three days during February. It was a pleasant stay. Staff and service was good. Internet was available only in the lobby; would have liked in the room. Housekeeping needs a little improvement. Otherwise, it is a pleasant place. Restaurant serves all kinds of dishes and the preparations are quite tasty. We enjoyed our stay here. I... More

Food could be improved to some extent when the wife of MD took interest. We found the only Manager was a short of Cheat... More

I can recommend Driftwood Hotel & Resort in Port Blair if you are going to the Andaman Islands. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They will arrange a programme if required of sightseeing. Try and get an upper room if you want a view, some ground floor rooms look out on a wall! The restaurant staff advise on the... More

The general location & ambience of the hotel is good. However, a couple of problem remain to be addressed: (I) The Restaurant needs much improvement- the food usually is too spicy for even Indian standards--the alternatives like a continental meal is unavailable. (ii)The checkout time at 8.00 am is unacceptable. The standard is 10-12noon. Moreover, if a hotel is booked... More

Good value for money, the hotel has a bar and restaurant and the food is quite reasonably priced. The rooms although basic, do have air conditioning, tv and a shower with hot water, a bit of a luxury out here. We paid £24 for two for 1 nights stay which included a very basic breakfast. Taxi to the airport is... More

The hotel is just about average. They do not change the sheets and towels. We asked them to change the sheets and they cleaned the room and put on the same sheets after just dusting them off. They food in the restaurant isn't up to the mark but then you don't really have much choice because port blair doesn't have... More

I had booked 2 rooms in this hotel after reading good reviews about it on your site. I was in for quite a lot of disappointment. The rooms were road facing. There were no windows and there was no crossventilation. The room service from 7.00 AM onwards was very good. Sheets and Towels were not changed even once in my... More

Service and hotel quality was good. Hotel was in renovation so hot water was not available in our room. But they arranged hot water separately at early morning 6 AM. If the location would have been near sea then it would have been a perfect place to stay.
