The hotel itself is historical. The architecture is worth watching. The restaurant is a quaint little place where you can sit, relax and enjoy your food. Worth a visit.

On a cold winter evening, the family decided to go over to this old hotel/restaurant for dinner and it didn't dissappoint. Food was really great!

Enjoyed an evening meal here whilst staying at the hotel. The dining room is full of colonial charm and the staff were very attentive and friendly. I can particularly recommend the vegetarian thali which was delicious and not too pricey.
