Stayed here for 2 nights. The checkin was quick and the place is a candy store for nature lovers. The garden is beautiful with well maintained bushes and lawn. The stream running behind the property is the cherry on the cake. Sameer was an excellent host and the food was just

We spent four nights at GG. We were most comfortable. It is a hidden gem in the culture triangle. Beautifully manicured gardens. New well attired suites. Excellent service. Delicious cuisine. Very reasonable charges. Will stay again.

Not viable to offer such spacious, clean, well maintained suites, gardens, pools, restaurant, quality services for any less than the competive rates we charge. It appears that you were happy with most aspects. One cannot compare rates between countries. Our rates are based on the services we provide. We are pleased to note that we were there to offer you the opportunity to experience Governor's Grand which is only a couple of years since been built. Thank you

No such person or anyone remotely connected to the hotel ever stayed or checked in to our hotel. I am the manager and I never have spoken to anyone as claimed by this person. How on earth can you call it a dump when we enjoyed the highest number of bookings, satisfied guests during the month of December, January and February 2018. It appears all too easy for this person who either got the bearings all mixed up or posted this review to us when he may have stayed at some other place. I challenge the person to come forward and explain.
