They have a variety of rooms as per budget. The ambience is heavenly with sweet chirps all over the place. The hotel has some excellently maintained flower beds. The vivid colors... More

Very close to Venna lake where you can go boating. Not a luxurious place but a simple one. Ample parking space available. Good play areas to... More
