I was visiting family in India and could not face staying in the "village" so i booked into the best Hotel in the area. The hotel is modern, clean and extremely nice to stay in. The room was large, lovely bed, air con was brilliant, view from the windows was pleasant - River Tapti, bathroom had a lovely shower. LCD TV to watch IPL was great. iHome unit to charge your iPhone and play music through. The staffs were excellent, not pushy or hanging around for a tip, they all had greeting for you when they passed you.
I stayed for 8 nights and ate at the restaurant every night with family, had the buffet which was excellent, no health problems, food was hot and tasty with lots of choice. The selection of desserts and fruits was good. The staffs were very friendly and always made you feel welcome, clean and tidy. The Cake shop in the lounge area was a nice treat for tea/coffee and some lovely cakes and snacks.
Please use the gym, very good machines and someone is always around to help or provide you with a towel. Sauna looked ok, but if i wanted a sauna I would just need to step outside as the temperature was 36C.
Internet was excellent - worth the money, no dropouts and fast access.
This review is for all the Asian UK/US people travelling to Surat/Gujarat to visiting family, stay here and enjoy your time, treat it like a holiday - let the kids enjoy a lovely hotel with great food.
BTW not one single mosquito bite!
Surat also have 3 indoor shopping malls, KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway etc
