As we couldn't guess the exact location , we took a rickshaw to reach the hotel but it was a mere wastage as the location is too good. It's very very near to the railway station. But once you enter into the gate, the ambiance suddenly changes. With sprawling lawns, heritage wings it's quite unique. We stayed at the Heritage...

The property as mentioned is quite old. It used to be Railway Guest house and later in 2007 taken over by some private entrepreneur and converted into hotel. The transformation is tastefully done. Lot of open space in front gives sophisticated touch, gardens are nicely maintained and low level running fountains looks cool in summer. Since I travel frequently in...
