We had a one night stay the rooms and bathrooms are clean and well maintained, though the bathrooms can do with some amenities. The staff is very good and helpful. The rooms on the ground floor were of a good size but the bathrooms were small.The washbasin did not have a shelf on which your accessories could be put. However all in all a very nice experience.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor and the rooms had big windows,however the parked cars and the drivers...

I visited Somnath during end December 2012. Being a holiday season, I've been told that the charges are on the higher side & I paid INR 2500 for a four bedder room which I feel is on the costlier side, the ideal price (for the location & quality of the hotel) could have been something around INR 1500. The hotel as such is clean & well maintained except the fact we get dry fish smell during evening/ nights which may be annoying for some people.

The hotel has a small restaurant but we preferred to dine at the Lords Inn (though it's costly, it's worth for the service & quality of the food) which is just next to this hotel. We tried breakfast in the hotel's restaurant & the quality of the food has nothing special to mention about.

Room Tip: This hotel deserves an "Average" rating just because it's over priced. For INR 1500 (a...

In the hospitality business, service is the key. Hotel Ambar at Somnath and the retsaurant attached to it prove this point.

During our recent trip to Somnath, we stayed in this hotel. Not very far from the famous temple, the hotel provides decent accommodation at affordable prices. Rooms are spacious and clean. The linen was of good quality and replaced everyday. The bed, bathroom and other facilities were basic but quite OK considering the tarriff.

Room service was provided for tea / coffee and we went to the restaurant within the same campus for food. The first experience was not very good since the food was spicy and oily. We spoke to the chief F&B guy and his response was fantastic. For the enxt 2 days, he and his staff went out of the way to provide us food to suit our palate. We were 8 senior citizens with a range of preferences. The staff responded to mour needs very well and made us forget the first experience.

By the time we left, they had won our hearts through our stomachs!

It is clear that service is the key in this business.

We went for a pilgrimage to Hotel Ambar in Somnath in Nov 2012. They told that rooms are costly because of the season. The rooms are not clean and not comfortable to stay. It is not worth the money you give for this hotel.

Room Tip: May not be a good place to stay when you travel with family. The rooms are not clean.

Stayed here for a short trip during a visit to Somnath. Hotel is clean and reasonably priced. The hotel is about 15 mins away from the temple so plan time accordingly if you're trying to attend the Aarti ceremony in the main temple.

Room Tip: you don't always need the AC room as the normal ones are fine!
