Stayed here for 2 nights in December. Was pleasantly surprised with the room conditions. They have a big open area and an accessible terrace. Room service was good and the hotel staff was very courteous The location is nice with the boat lake about 1 km walk. Overall nice stay.

I stayed in this Hotel. Until I went there I was not having any idea about how amazing location it got. Very peaceful & very dedicated management including staff. Ready to serve delicious food with warm hospitality. One should experience the gesture.
