Good Amiable evnironment. Closely situated to the central city and the beaches. Food is very good . The hospitality from the hotel Receptionist (Mr.Ramesh) was very pleasant. The overall stay was excellent and we had great fun in the hotel for 4 days. :)

I booked a room in this hotel through travelguru and when I reached the hotel with my booking coupon, they simply refused. They were rude and said the booking wasn't confirmed. When I called Travelguru, they had a long conversation with the hotel guys and still dint manage getting a room. So we were just stranded there in the night... More

The room service is pathetic, he was about to push me and come and peep inside the room who is there. My wife got really scared the way room services guys behaviour. The manager in the reception soesnt even know how to greet his customers. Food was kinda good. We could hear noise throughout the night, bachelors were shouting throughout.

Very Cheap and well maintained hotel. And providing Breakfast is to the top. For the amount I pay for I get everything which is good. Good service by the staffs but you have to be careful while giving orders and get it back from them.Neat stay!

We stayed in a suite. The room had a musty smell and dark. The bed cover had a hole and some stains. They did not have a clean one to replace, so we slept without the cover! The TV had a makeshift electrical connection. The staff were courteous but not very helpful. Wifi is available only in the lobby. The... More

Poor customer service. Change the receptionist . The rooms are neat and clean. But had a horrible time. We stayed there for one day without any problem. We requested one night extra to the receptionist and asked for just 500 rs reduction. From that time he bahaved like a house owner.

Rooms are clean, not spacious though, hotel staff is helpful, parking is in basement, if it exceeds it's... More

Handed over the confirmation voucher from makemytrip to the guy at the reception who frowned at it and straightaway told me on face that there are no... More
