The hotel maybe small but it has a lot of amenities. The rooms were neat and clean with unlimited wifi which was a big bonus. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food offered although limited was tasty. The swimming pool was kept clean at all times. Overall we got good value for money.

The manager/reception desk was utterly unhelpful and rude. Our booking was a prepaid booking through their website, where we accurately described 2 adults and one child - and paid for the amount that the website asked for. But when we reached there, they asked for Rs 750 extra per day for the child. Because it was a prepaid booking, they... More
