The location of the hotel is excellent, very near to the market, easy to reach and the pub & spa next to it. The rooms were clean with a balcony and all basic things were there. WiFi facility in the room was definitely a big hit!!

This Hotel seemed quite new. The rooms are pretty large, well furnished, with a bath tub and 24 hours hot water. There is only one functional restaurant with a limited menu and slow service. Room service is efficient. Friendly staff. Nothing great in the view from the balcony of the room.

it is a very good place to stay as it is near the lift, prices are economical , good amenities, multiple restaurants are around the corner and landmarks are also not too far.. So, it's a perfect hotel if you are travelling with family..

Spent two days at the hotel. Spacious room, good staff and food. Stay was comfortable. No parking for vehicles as vehicles drop you near the lift and we need to take lift to reach mall road where hotel is situated. Otherwise great stay.
