I have stayed in this hotel 2-3 times earlier. It was never a 'vow' hotel but it was reasonably good. However, this visit was a disaster ! The hotel standards have plummeted to rock bottom. I had to change my room on the first day as the A/C did not work. In the new room the wash basin tap was... More

The location of the hotel is not good. It's in the middle of an industrial area. If you have some work nearby only then it's recommended as you have no other option. The city is almost 20 - 25 kms. The rooms and food is quite good but in the morning buffet there are hardly any options.

My stay in competent was fine I would say. The hotel exterior are great. However it get very deserted at night. being the only few guests even coming in at 10-11 in the night made you feel odd as everything was just silent. The breakfast is good. The place is near Dehradun where people are simple maybe that is why... More

It has good well appointed rooms, a reasonably good restaurant & a bar.All the rooms are centrally air conditioned . It has a business center as well as 3 Conference... More

The curtains in the room were closed when we arrived in the afternoon. On opening them we found out why .... there was... More

Stayed at Competent Palace during a business visit, rooms are quiet spacious, however not so clean, towels, linen are old and not in good condition, no much choice in breakfast. There is no much choice in the area so still OK for a stay of 1 or 2 nights. Staff is helpful and friendly, they want to make you comfortable... More
