Though not the usual expansive Taj properties one is used to, still the hotel is nice, located near the public offices, and comfortable. The food is good, and staff is helpful, as you would expect in any Taj hotel. Surprisingly not many fish preparations in the menu, being in a coastal town.

Stayed at this city hotel for 4 nights on business trip. To be fair, I didn't choose this, as I was part of bigger group all staying together, but actually it was fine. Good points included quiet(ish) rooms, with reasonable bathroom, TV with multi-national channels (once you find them!) and a really good Chinese restaurant. Staff were also attentive. Decent... More

Taj Hotels are known for their hospitality. The ambience is awesome. From the reception to the room, the process was smooth. The room was spacious and good with a view to their swimming pool. I definitely recommend this hotel.

I have never had a bad service experience in India, but the staff at this hotel have exceeded in friendliness and helpfulness anything I have experienced. In addition, the hotel was very well appointed, clean with great breakfast and dinner and provided an altogether superior experience.
