“State Govt Run Hotel - Slothful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

Kingfisher is a Haryana State Govt Run Property and is credible to be called a Motel for being situated right on the highway - NH1. As the management of the motel gives you a first stint & thought of being a Govt run hotel, you can be well thought of your decision to stay in. Quite old property and certainly not maintained well. The staff is rude as they are typical govt employees and the service is uncalled for. Though the property is nice and the situation is awesome and so are the rates if you stay overnight but for the stop over purpose its a great refreshing joint if you wanna lounge over a beer or a coffee. Will not recommend for overnight stay as there are other better hotels in the city.

The only thing good about this hotel is the way it looks from outside. once you enter in, it is full of disappointments believe me . Lobby of the hotel is tacky. Staff members are like they dont care at all whether you want to stay. The food provided by them is average.
I stayed in this hotel on my way to my trip to shimla and the only reason i could survive a night out there was that i had my friends. The room was average and could not sleep well on the bed, the staff was at times according to me rude.

The room was large, the bed large and comfy and mosquito screening OK with a reasonable (for India) ensuite. But it was fairly dingy, there was exposed wiring, holes in the walls and the hot water system was placed half through the ceiling. The hotel is right next to the highway and therefore very noisy with heavy trucks and horns blaring (all night), the staff don't make much effort to be helpful and the food in the restaurant was uninspiring. It just had a sad run-down feel to it.

my family and i stayed over here on our way to shimla...we were going from delhi which is long trip and so we decided to stop over and stay in the kingfisher hotel for a night....and it was a fine stay....but fine for a night over stay like we had....its not exactly a leisure or luxury hotel where you can enjoy or anything....its a good place if you just wanna spend the night somewhere....the rooms are ok....like normal rooms....nothing amazing though....the service was good....and the food was quite nice....we ordered room service and our food came fast and hot....so i would recommend it if you need a hotel to 'stay' but not exactly a hotel to 'enjoy' at......

The hotel is a good place for taking some time off to relax and enjoy swimming, club etc. It is a good place banquet hall and offers good food. And not to miss the spacious lawns .... ideal for holding small functions and get togethers!!

HI,
I stayed in Hotel Kingfisher for around 1 week.The reason of my stay was personal.
The room service of this hotel is pathetic..the only thing good about it is the Location.
Its right on National Highway 1,which is well connected to each and every city.

It is a very excellent place for all purposes like birth day parties, mariages, stay. this can also be booked for business purposes. As the location is on the rode NH-1 so every one can easily reach there.
