I'm sure this was never cleaned forget being sanitised. The AC works at its will, the restaurant so disgusting that couldn't even sit for a... More

Some rooms have been refurnished but some were still of the old type. Geyser is available for hot water. WiFi (slow) was available free at Lobby. No refrigerator in the... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of the Make My Trip 5N/6D package. This place was the only disappointment of the whole tour. The rooms are not maintained well. The toilets need a good scrub. The bedsheets were stained and yet the staff claimed it was changed prior to our arrival. The breakfast is pathetic!!! The chef needs to... More

Lovely front of house staff who were happy to help arrange cars and trips. The kitchen and bar could do with a little more management. The food took a very long time to arrive in the evening. Pleasant, quiet location.

The Hotel is well located as fr as communication is concerned, but no views! The Rooms are drab and the Furnishing ordinary. The complementary breakfast is poor! The Sleep quality is Average. It needs a lot of upkeep. The Wifi is working only in the Reception area and that too is poor. Quite a bit seedy. Not value for Money
