Stayed from 29-31Dec. We had some initial hiccups, specifically- delay in addressing some of our request for the room - nothing extraordinary. But once notified, Mr. Chengappa, the General Manager ensured our rest of the stay went smooth. I understand they were short staffed in certain areas owing to the pandemic but they did their best. Shout out to Mr. Arun- asst F&B manager, Thomas at front desk- for accommodating our late checkout, and a special mention of Mr. Senthil Kumar- Airport Executive- our entire check in, security and boarding with a 4year old and an infant was smooth and we didn’t have to wait in line anywhere.
