This seems to be a fairly well managed hotel. We got there and were offered a welcome tea as they handled the registration formalities. The room was well appointed, clean and well maintained. We did get a waft of the mosquito spray as we entered the room. They gave us a fruit plate that was good. The view of the sun set over the mountains was excellent.
The restaurant had a limited vegetarian fare for dinner so we went out. The breakfast had a good spread. They even bought us Idilis and Vadas on request but they were a bit cold. They could also have refilled a bit faster.
Things to note: 1. There are no lifts that we could see in the hotel and the restaurant is on the second floor. If you have difficulty climbing stairs, you may want to look at other options. 2. The pool is a bit far being part of the sister hotel next door. 3. The restaurant has a dress code of smart casual. We were told of this upon arrival. Not sure how much of it is enforced though. 4. The welcome drink is tea and if you are not a tea drinker, too bad. 5. Wi-fi is free in the Lobby but charged in the rooms, 6.The TV did not have a large variety of channels nor a guide to the channels in the room.
Overall, this seems to be a well-managed hotel with good people. I would not have any problems returning there.
