The hotel location in good. The rooms facing the ocean gives a great view. The rooms are compact well maintained with great accessories. Though the structure is old but well maintained. The food is good with large variety. Little bit expensive.

The hotel is a decent place to stay. Its located on marine drive looking over indian ocean. The rooms are decent and clean. Staff is helpful and cooperaive. Hotel have a good buffet breakfast which you can enjoy in train-spotter restaurent. The promotional events and saturday sunday buffets for lunch and dinner are also good. Hotel has a smallish pool. Better to cross the road in front of hotel and jump straightaway into indian ocean. Hotel has a decent karaoke and bar. Hotel is close to many good restaurants which s[ecialises in sea food, indian cuisine, srilankan fare.

Room Tip: better to go for sea view rooms and that too on lower floors. Higher floor rooms might have water fl...

Stayed here with friends. The location is simply superb. The beach is just across the road. You have a KFC next door. Also a sea food restaurant Beach Wadia just across the road - good food, but over priced. The restaurant in the hotel is reasonably priced, but the food is just fine, can not be called great. You have the hotel cabs, they drop you free of cost to the Casinos. For other places, three wheel metered taxies are available once you get on the road. They are reasonably priced. Insist on a room with the sea facing balcony. Service is not quick, probably the service team could not handle the full occupancy the hotel had during our stay. Would recommend.

The location of this hotel is good. Its on Marine Drive and faces the beach. Its well equipped with a restaurant and bar. The bar has karaoke nights during weekends. The check in is a breeze as the front desk staff try and accommodate you as fast as possible even if there was a bevy of us checking in at the same time. The bar is well stocked, but the bar menu is sparse and the food is not that great. If you dont want to go out much, even the 'Beach Wadia' bar right across the property which is good.
