Location is awesome. But a slight expensive one. Great place to stay. Rooms are of good quality. Food is ok. Will definitely visit again. Nice place for a short vacation. Highlight is the location n size of the room which makes the hotel stand out as a unique one.

The location of the hotel is excellent inside the green and peace of nature, much away from the hustle and bustle of the daily monotony and the service provided by the hotel was also good. Room rent is also affordable

Don't look for any extravagent things here but courteous staff and very clean room/hotel. Simple place surrounded by dense forest and tucked away quietly away from the market place. Food is simple too, not very elaborate though.

Took two bungalow rooms for two days. Rooms were not ready till 2.00 pm. Even then found unclean toilets and really bad towels & bedsheets awaited us. We weren't sure how hygienic the blankets were. Had to change rooms and then got rooms where doors didn't close. Food is at best average. Absolutely no reason to pay the kind of... More
