My experience staying in Apple valley was not good. It is not worth for rs 4K. Rooms and Bed were small. I was expecting a bigger room for amount I paid. No fan, no AC, flies in room, phenyl smell most of the time. Food was pathetic. Restaurant person was rude. Strict timing for food, hot water. Places are nearby but you have to climb to very steep road for 10-15 min, difficult with kids. House keeping was good. From outside view is good.

Overall NOT Worth for money you are going to spend staying here.

This is a nice clean hotel located within close vicinity of all sightseeing places. We had booked the deluxe rooms but were upgraded to super deluxe. This is a nice viewing point for sunrise and sunset- the long terrace provides a vantage point.

Wi-fi available in the reception area. There is a large car parking facility.

Room Tip: Do not select the deluxe rooms, these are all in the basement and very damp.

we stayed last week in this hotel . One of my friend from madurai recommended this hotel, positive of the hotel is neat and clean, A small hotel beautifully build ed with spacious car parking area, we stayed in triple deluxe room, room was clean, well maintained house keeping, bathroom have all items like soap,shampoo,brush,except hair comp. we stayed in -1floor from the ground level so no great view balcony looks some crowded living area. nothing special from my room. manager is a nice young champ he helped in some matters. hotel is located downside of the busy road once you entered inside you will get the calm situation around you so no problem at all. room service is good,The only problem you have to walk in the upside road to get shops, But i have no problem to walk so i don't worry about that. negative is no amenities for kids to play and enjoy management take note of it. a small boy from one family rounding the restaurant no enjoyment in his face tells that. Complimentary break fast is good,other than ordered items from room not meet our expectation but ok. A good hotel for short stay.

Room Tip: I think top floors will be better open space restaurant and view

Room Type: 2 Apple Delux rooms for 3 nights (inc breakfast)
Travel: 2-4 April
Travelled with: Wife, kid and parents.

Pros:
Excellent and fast Service
Room cleaning was awesome
Delicious food
Awesome location (10 min walk to lake, bryant park and beautiful croakers walk)
Good Friendly staff
Environment Friendly initiatives taken by hotel
Terrace to enjoy good view and morning tea :)
Food prices are economical and no extra charge if you want your order in room

Cons:
- Travel Desk was disappointment. If you want to enjoy, book a tourist group bus rather than hotel cab. They will charge high and won't show you much. The driver was very demotivated for some reason.
- Language issue. If you don't speak native language, it will be bit difficult to communicate with the room service staff. They will understand some key english words that may be enough for most of the cases. For example, I wanted strong tea (made on gas stove with more tea leaves), they brought dipped tea with some extra tea bags ;)
- No WIFI in rooms. Only in lobby.
- No garden where you can sit and relax (only a terrace with seats and view)
- No kid's Play Area

Room Tip: Delux rooms don't have good view but they are the bit cheap(not -er). Superior delux rooms will...

A strategic place to stay in terms mobility with good view especially in the morning.It was a walking distance to the shops nearby. The staffs in this hotel are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well kept. I would recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay here again unless it is fully booked.
