The food and services are little expensive. If you are ready for a walk, you can enjoy traditional food and delicacies at local hotels which are damn cheap. While... More

We had spent our honeymoon night here. The food is amongst the best in the vicinity with especially the breakfast spread. Rooms are also done well with ample space. Not sure if there is sufficient activity to keep one occupied beyond 3 days here.
