This hotel has all the good signs of growing to excellence in the industry. As a tour organizer I thoroughly enjoyed the reception they gave to the guest. Service is great and the room space is perfect. As it is relatively a new property the amenities are clean they have great restaurant too. A very good business hotel in Mangalore.... More

The famed Ideal Cafe and Ideal Ice Cream Parlour are just a stone's throw away from the hotel. The Entrance is decent. The... More

Our room was quiet damp and the peculiar odour you associate with a damp room hit us as soon as we entered it. The room ac needed to be adjusted (as no remote was provided)... More
