It was an overall pleasant experience to stay in White Orchid Guest House. Room facilities Bed, TV, water heater etc. were excellent at the price they charged. Room service was good. Location of the hotel is great. But I would like to draw the attention towards the cook as it was disappointing to speak with him. The quality of food... More

This spotlessly clean rowhouse turned hotel came in my itinerary after I saw its rating on Tripadvisor and is an extremely good place for a short stopover. The only drawback is that it is a place managed by a single chef and food variety is a question. To help matters there is a small but good outlet named Lovely Hotel... More

Not a place to really have lunch or dinner. I would have loved the place more if they had WiFi. Otherwise the place is really good for the price... More

If you want to stay in a peaceful atmosphere at an average budget( Rs 1500 range), this might be a good place. But, everytime you need to go anywhere meaningful( markets, offices, touist places, etc) you shall have to hire a taxi shelling out Rs 100. The guesthouse is clean, well maintained. The rooms are large ( 225 sqft+ for... More
