Nicely maintained place with exceptional food provided. Located at the peak of the mountain and has good aerial view. The front desk gave me all the relevant information in regards to sight seeing.

Me, my husband and our daughter aged 6 + years stayed in room 327 from 9th to 11th August 2014. Check in took almost 45 minutes and we were very tired as it was after a long journey from Mysore.

I went alongwith my wife and daughter. A very nice place to stay. Hotel was clean and the view from the room is very good. They provided a heater which was really comforting. Buffet breakfast was nice. Overall a nice place to stay especially for couples.

Its a really sin to book a room in Sin(clairs) Retreat. Stinking lobby, room is not properly cleaned and food is too costly with decent taste. We visited last week of july 2014, had worst experience till this date.
