A magnificent dining experience.

If they don't have it on show, just ask - we wanted ice cream and were given the most delicious butterscotch flavoured ice cream ever!

There was something for everyone, whatever your taste in food. Nothing was too much trouble and even something as little as having your toast brought to you has made being home a bit hard now we have to do it all ourselves! The staff were WONDERFUL.

Whatever we ate was delicious. First time that a hotel could serve stuffed paratha as good as at Home...if not better. The mutton was perfectly cooked and yum

Great selection of food, beautifully presented and served with a smile. Great evening buffet and good breakfasts. If you make a comment about a dish you really like. The chef will get you the recipe.

Nothing great about this place, a very usual hotel for a person coming from a metro city, specially the staff has really put us off with their unfriendly attitude.

I liked pretty well everything. We had a buffet meal so we could choose what we wanted, but I found nothing to dislike.
