Good budget hotel. Friendly behaving staffs. Good food. Nice place to stay away from busy city rush. Lake side. Calm and quiet atmosphere. Wrong location shown, its actually near to Thykoodam over bride (NH-47).

I booked the hotel through goibibo and it was a very comfortable stay, though not up to the expectations but at par with price charged.Rooms were good Staff here were also ready for service anytime. No bad experience. Also I think it's bit out of the city so book here only if you have your own car.

The pictures in the profile aren't even remotely same as the actual rooms allotted. Terrible service. No one at reception from 5 in the evening and hotel door open throughout night with no security. Very unsafe. Extremely poor overall.

We arrived late (11 pm), manager was already angry because he had to wait for us. Rooms were not cleaned, bath room unhygienic plus showers were broken, electricity of the elevator went out on the 1st time we were going to our room;we were stuck in the elevator for more than 5 minutes. We never used the elevator after that....

Room was decent and spacious with view of the waterway canal but the room curtains need cleaning. The problem with the hotel was its location. Due...
