Hotel Ambadi was not in our package list & because we reach d a day earlier somehow. Our caring tour manager Mr. George Antony managed us a cottage at Ambadi with nice price & we must confess pretty good rooms than we expected. Highly recommended , a very economical hotel at least when we visited on 30/12/2011

lovely location- old property, nice restaurant with lots of choices. Food was good- we had four different entrees and everyone enjoyed their choice. The tandoor chicken was not too spicy- very tasty but small portion. The lemon rice was delicious!

The supplies in the room are decent and clean. There is lot of wooden furniture used and the theme is quite antique and rustic. We loved the... More

I visited the restaurant in this hotel twice with my family last week. During the first dinner, we noticed that service was slow towards us and a few other patrons got super prompt service. We ignored this as an one off case. The food was ok, prawn starter was infact delicious but the chicken biriyani was quite average. Next day... More
