Although rated as four star property, there are several lacuna that needs to be looked into for better customer reach. The rooms are comfortable but the airconditioning keeps switchng off. In the night the room became unbearable as the a/c was switched off for a considerable period. In the bathroom shower stall the water flow is low so on has... More

The bed is slightly harder than what we like so it isn't as comfortable but we kind of get used to it after our 6 nights stay. The only complain would have been... More
