The hotel is around 3 km from the main town. The location is fantastic. Calm and amidst forests. No vehicular noise. You can enjoy the aun in the balcony or garden. Best if you r going for a calm stay for 2-3 days. Hotel staff was supportive, rooms were clean and restaurant had maintained the standards.

The spread of breakfast/dinner is good. The staff were very polite and helpful. The upkeep and maintenance of the hotel is not up to the mark.... More
