Stayed at the hotel for a night. The hotel is part of the Ballal group which also has a presence in Bangalore and other places. It's an old world hotel and I would equate it with being similar to Woodland. They have large spaces in the town center, restaurants and typically marriage/party hall. Palmgrove is very well located in the... More

Most of the fittings are quite old and makkes the room dated. The staff are very businesslike. What is attractive is the good buffet breakfast spread and the facility of... More

To start with the positives it is a walking distance from the consulate and close to all the city activity. There is an inhouse restaurant and some better restaurants just outside. Morning buffet was quite god. There it ends, unfortunately. The rooms were not as clean as you would expect for a family hotel. The towels and sheets looked as... More

As I asked to see the room,I got the assistance within seconds,and obviously was impressed. And room was pretty decent,spacious and clean. If you are looking for five star facilities go for any other... More

I reserved the rooms over the phone. Paid ₹2500 per day and ₹675 per extra bed. This hotel is really really old and dirty. The towels were bleached so badly that they had become crispier than the masala dosas that I ate there. Toilets were stained. Walls looked uneven like they had concealed a dead body in them.
