Excellent Place. Walking distance from Mall Road. Food very good. Non spicy and tasty. Big spacious room. Staff very cooperative. Saturday Night party was too good. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only improvement required is providing free pick up and Drop facility to guests to Volvo stand.

It could have been a lot cleaner and a little more effort in furnishings etc would not have gone amiss. There was a water leak in one of the bathroom... More
