I had last written a review on this hotel in July 2013. Stayed again after 2 months but Trip Advisor needs a gap of three months before another review can be written. That's a fair policy. I stayed there in November again. Things have improved quite substantially in terms of hospitality. After checking in at about 10 pm, I went for the buffet dinner. There were very few guests. I was pampered by the staff for 'trying' many good dishes. I had a home feel where one is persuaded to eat more. Being my third stay at least one staff member could recognize me.
Next day, during breakfast too, the attention was quite pleasant. As usual, each & every staff member greets guests right from Security staff at the entrance upto the House keeping staff. . Food variety remains practically endless. On the second evening, the Jr Chef, Mr Ashutosh Pandey came over to my room with a special desert and an offer to prepare 1-2 dishes exclusively for me. True to the promise, he did prepare the special Dhaabaa Daal for me which I wanted a bit oily & spicy. he did bring the same as I wanted that too within 5 minutes. It tasted so good. I thank all the staff for making me feel special.
Another good thing that I liked immensely is the trip by House keeping trolly at about 5 pm asking each availble guest whether he needs any extra toiletries. Its so good. Also, i have the habit of spreading out my belongings in random fashion. I found the same nicely organized. Courtesy, the House keeping staff. Special feature of the bath rooms is a large round mirror. In addition, there is a good magnifying mirror that prompted me to trim my grown up mustaches. I wish there was matching lighting around these nice mirrors!
The hotel is excellent value for money and leave lasting memories.
