Devi Niketan is a really good option for any type of tourist. Different experience staying in a home converted to hotel. Rooms are spacious, clean and airy. Watch out for mosquitoes.
Staff are nice and our brief interaction with the admiral was also good. We did not have any food there including breakfast. the staff had said previous evening that it was possible to give us an early breakfast at 7am, while the admiral came back to us later and said it would not be. This was the only negative.
