This was our first time stay at this Lodge. I went there after seeing such good reviews . But the trauma started when we checked in there. We went on 22 June 2012, a time when temperature was around 44.0 c. Room provided to us had a so called AC which was merely working on a blower not on compressor. I have visited with my parents who are elderly and needed rest after a long journey. When the non functional AC was reported to the reception we had its owner Amol Dhir visiting our room. As per him AC was working fine and inspite of our request he refused to change our room even though rooms were non occupied. I was taken a back by his arrogance. He even threatened us by telling he is a known individual in that area. I had no option at that time as I had my parents with him but to spend that night in that cheap lodge. We were forced to deal with that pathetic condition in such a terrible hot weather. Even Room which we booked was the Top paid room which had cockroaches roaming freely. Even food which we ordered was horrible and tasteless and a complete waste of money. When I told Mr. Amol Dhir that this experience will be shared by me then his response was " Your review won't matter much to me ".. Well hope this experience helps you in taking a better decision.
