The dinner was good and so was the breakfast. The room was fairly spacious and good enough for 2 of... More

They dont provide a kettle and instant coffee for the rooms. I was told that they will give it on request.What kind of... More

There is no wifi in the rooms. Wifi is only available in the lounge and restaurants. A number of comfortable seats are placed around... More

15 people we booked seven rooms. We stayed for two days. service is not good. Mattress provided are not comfortable. Not much worth for money. Even nobody is taking care to transfer our luggage to room.

We got a very nice and spacious room with a good bed and a pretty view on the tea fields. The bathroom is not entirely up to standards we are used to, but this holds true for almost... More
