Had a great stay in Hotel Jai. It belongs to a Hilltop group, so no worries about service. The receptionist and the service staffs are very friendly. Breakfast is great here. Nice Ambient rooms. Good Proximity to the town and other sightseeings.

The hotel is good for family stay. Their triple bed room is neat and spacious. The bathroom is little cramped. Hotel staff at night was a bit irresponsible. But in the morning we found all good freindly staff. The breakfast was good. It had ample car parking. The surroundings are kept neat and clean.
