We stayed in the hotel which was booked in the last minute. We initially had our own doubts if this property was the right pick due its low price but later were extremely happy with the decision that was made. This hotel with the rooms being neat and clean also offers excellent services. The best part is the location of... More

Hotel Nilgiri's Comfort Inn: 2 Standard Room for 2 nights From June 11, 2014 to June 13, 2014 @ Rs. 3,895.

This is one of the worst and terrible experience. Inspite of booking through phone and confirming over phone we had not allotted hotel room. This hotel is not at all reliable. Please don't book this hotel.

Service we got was good. But the Ambience and the room interior was not good. Food was ok. If you can pay more, better to stay in other good hotels. You have to park in the public parking area. The hotel does not have its own parking but parking is available next to the hotel. No short cuts to reach... More
