This hotel promises more than it delivers. We booked two rooms, neither of which had mosquito nets. We requested them, to be told that they are not proved in the rooms as standard as 'some people don't like them'(!). Note that several mosquitoes did manage to get into the rooms. However, the nets were provided by nightfall, although one of them had quite a big hole in it making it less than 100% effective. I wonder if they actually have enough nets for all of the rooms?
One of the rooms didn't have a safe, and when queried with the front-desk there was some surprise that it wasn't present. It was promised that a safe would be fitted 'tomorrow'. By the time we left, after three nights the safe still hadn't materialised. The sign on the back of the room door says that safes are available in reception but this doesn't appear to be the case - we just used the one that was present in our second room.
The Indian/Chinese 'fusion" restaurant is good although curiously it was quicker for a meal to be served than a cup of tea!
Not bad for the money, but not outstanding either.
