The overall stay was very comfortable and our host "John" was very warm. We had a good overall experience. All the touristy places were close by. The place also had a backyard lawn where you can chill and sit.

Stayed here for 3 nights, I reached there at mid night and we had the office boy open the door for us. The staff is really friendly and welcoming. Mr. John and Mrs. Neetu ensured we were all taken care of. Breakfast was great too! Definitely recommend this place.
