We were planning to do a day trip for some business work and got late and our friend suggested that we could say at the ROCK HOTEL. So just for that night and we only had dinner and breakfast. Manager who was on duty took care of us very well. Rooms had very Basic facilities, which is ok for the... More

I was upset initially that my Travel Agent booked this hotel and I only saw the reviews of the hotel later on TA. However, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I wouldn't call it a full fledged Hotel but would call it Boutique Hotel. Most of the travelers have commented on price. I wont comment on price because... More

Perfectly fine place to stay. The food was surprisingly good and the staff were friendly. The room was quite tired and the issue here is that it is far up a hill, over a ditch I wouldn't want to drive a car over. So I'd say it's fine if you've got a driver and aren't wanting to be "in the... More

The location is far from city. It can also be very challenging if you don't have a driver with a car & road upto the hotel is dangerous. If two cars arrive at a same time from opposite direction, you hold your breath specially if you are from Canada because we don't see such things at home. It was terrifying.... More

Unfortunately I let the travel agent who organized our itinerary choose this hotel, and I didn't have time to check it on TA. I checked the hotel website afterwards, and it's nothing like that. The lobby, lounge and dining area are fine, very colonial and comfortable. But our room was awful. 2 of us in a family room where you... More

small and compact hotel with car parking facilities. Good view from rooms but new building constructions obstructing the panoramic view. Limited choice of food but compensated by excellent hospitality by the manager in charge. In short average experience of stay here.

This hotel was a let down!! Rooms and menu in serious need of a revamp and modernizing. Kettle and cups... No tea and coffee... and on enquiry we were told... Only in deluxe rooms... Not on! On the flip side the staff were really friendly.

A nice place for the amount paid... simple yet amazing. Great service & very friendly staff specially the Manager Mr. Uchith & Ms. Gayeshani was very helpful. I highly recommend this place as a BB. Can explore street food in the city for a reasonable price.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it definitely was worth the price. The rooms were spacious and the Manager was extremely helpful and went out of his to way to help us out. We had the choice of eggs / fruits for breakfast. They even were able to pack sandwiches for us when we had to leave early in... More
