Our room had brand new mattress, carpets and curtains. The bed was so comfortable. The room felt very clean. We stayed for 2 nights. There were lots of other tourists staying at this hotel. Lots of Europeans on tour busses or with drivers. It felt like a big hotel. The breakfast had lots of selection and was in the dining... More

This is a nice hotel in the midst of the forest. Rooms are good and has a nice restaurant. The downside is that you have to eat in the restaurant only as there is nothing nearby. Wifi is only in the lobby hence you need to come down to connect. Over all a good hotel.

It's an interesting place, a nice building, that needs a reform. The personal is polite and efficient. The city is a very nice place which very interesting British style houses. The tea fields around are very nice.

It's a minimum budget hotel and has only the basic facility. The furniture in the room is very ordinary and the room is not very clean. The food... More

Don't let the look of the outside of the hotel concern you. It looks plain and nondescript but what a great place to stay.We only had one nite there but we really enjoyed it. It is in a great location with some local houses and gardens around and if you take a walk you will come to a nice lake... More
