“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

This Hotel is a complete transformation of the hotel which used to exist here. Hotel Gaurav used to be here and I have stayed at Gaurav Hotel in the past.It was a great surprise to me to see this transformation and the new Fern Hotel here. Gaurav was a simple Hotel but with good Gujarati Thali.

I was greeted very well at the reception and since it was very late check in @2230 I was asked if I wanted to have dinner which was a buffet dinner since the restaurant would be open only for a short while. Excellent meal and later the next day a very good breakfast as well.

Even the security guy was helpful to create a parking place for my car.

Rooms are good with a professional touch.Bathrooms are clean. Beds are with excellent quality bed linen . The minibar is full of select drinks and snacks of known brands which anyone would like though I did not use.

I have only one suggestion that there is NO Fan in the room. In case someone does not want an AC what would happen. I am sure there is a back up GEN SET in case of AC failure but a fan would be helpful.

Overall no complain and only compliments . Excellent location walkable from Railway Station.

Room Tip: BE Careful not to walk to another Hotel which is just a 10 steps away from Fern in the same compound...

It's located within less than 5 minutes from the railway station at Vadodara. This was called Hotel Gaurav before; has been re-christened to Fern Residency a few months back. It's got a small, slightly cramped but highly efficient and economical multicuisne coffee shop which serves pan India cuisine in its buffet, but always adds a 3 - 5 signature Gujarati items to add the local flavor. Rooms are small, but the space has been utilized extremely well to provide almost every amenity of a 4-star property. The room costed approximately INR 2200+tax; which is definitely a feel good factor. Bathrooms are small, well lit with basic supplies and amenities. Towel and general linen quality is good - still new. Did not take any room service. Check In and Check out can become more efficient; the front office is over-staffed with moderately efficient staff - hence a scope of improvement. Overall good experience and will stay there again during my next trip at Vadodara.

Room Tip: They have 34 rooms. Most of them are well appointed.

I can specially recommend this place for people looking for Budget as well as Amenities and warm welcome. A well defined Buffet for Breakfast fills up for the rest of the day of work in Vadodara. The staff seems the old staff of Gaurav who have traditionally been most service oriented and offer all support we are looking for. Now this place looks very modern and worth the price with the brand name attached

Room Tip: Most ideally located near station and the ST depot. You would not find a better place than this. THe...

I am a frequent visitor to Baroda.Have been to almost all the hotels figuring in the list of elite class i.e Revival, Sayaji etc to name a few..to the ones frequented by corporates like Ginger however Fern exceeds all the ones named here.Few reasons why one must choose this over the others
1) Proximity to both station & airport
2) Amicable and courteous staff
3) Excellent infrastructure
4) Good variety & quality of food

My first visit and I knew that this is the place I am gonna come henceforth.Must visit is all I can say

I visited VADODARA on 1st March for a business trip.I intend to stay near the railway station.Someone suggested me about "The Fern Residency" and I checked in that hotel.To my surprise, I was amazed by the enterance lobby along with the rooms.The interior was very good
without any nonscence.The thali{food} was exellent and at reasonably priced.The staff was courteous.I would suggest anyone visiting Vadodara can definetly try this hotel due to its location,food and good rooms.

Room Tip: rooms on the other side,not facing the road are more quiet.
