We had an unfortunate incident towards the end of the stay, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate and support through the process. Furthermore, would specially like to mention the GM Mr. Kiran who was outstanding in extending his support, and ensured that he was kept informed with the minutest of developments through out the process. A Truly magnificent standard of hospitality.

Poorly maintained corridors and limited options for breakfast. Staff at reception are not adequately trained, need grooming. Staff at buffet breakfast resturant tries to avoid making eye contact , afraid of that someone should not ask for their services.
