The hotel was good by Indian standards, especially the staff and dining room, open 24/7, a big plus. But their internet access policy was abysmal. We brought four wireless devices, two phones a laptop and an iPad.
We were forced to choose which one, and only one device to use, and that for a 24 hour period. Only that device would be allowed access! We were given this excuse about ''security'', which in today's world, and based on the policies of three other hotels in India we stayed in, was certainly not true.
Based on that alone, and the cleanliness of the common areas, a lower rating than they should easily get.
