On arrival the hotel looks promising. It isn't until you get upstairs that you realise that the rooms don't match. Our room luckily overlooked the back of the property which meant that we had a peaceful few nights unlike some in the front of the property. We were on a deluxe tour of India & this hotel definitely didn't fall into this category. Our room was very old fashioned & gloomy & was not the sort of room you looked forward to returning to at the end of the day. The area around the toilet had water marks which looked most unattractive.
We paid for Wi-Fi but it was very slow & hardly worth bothering with.
The food was good but the restaurant was very crowded with all the tour groups. At the evening meal there seemed confusion with bills.
Some of the staff were very helpful but those working in the shops were very pushy & put us off of even looking.
