Driftwood Hotel, which is just 3 KM to Airport is ideal place for a comfortable stay in Port Blair. I enjoyed there with my family for 4 days. Tasty food, courteous staff and very near to shopping Central Point. There is no wifi and the manager said wifi is available in reception hall but I never tried. The only BSNL... More

This hotel was booked as a part of our tour package from the tour agency itself. Very neat and clean rooms with friendly staff. Attended to calls quickly. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was pleasant experience. Being vegetarian didn't taste food here. Leave 3g internet back at home, here even 2g doesn't work consistently. So, even the... More

We booked this room online, When we landed we were given a ground floor. The construction was going on, there was lot of noise and the floor wet. We complained, They told us there was no room available. The service was also poor. We changed hotel next day. it was a bad experience. There is a huge scope to improve.

Very good hotel with good food. It was a pleasant stay. Service is prompt and staff were helpful. Food is above average. Not many varieties in buffet but they are good. Price is unbeatable in the available category of hotels.

The hotel is conveniently located at about 10 minutes drive from Port Blair. Anyway, while the rooms were clean but the service was poor. Lift wasn't working most of the time. Brakefast was inconsistent and the kitchen was severely lacking staff. 20+ guests were standing around kitchen gate in hope of getting hold of paratha only. When we went on... More

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
