We didn't stay at Hotel Topaz, but came to use the pool as the Lonely Planet recommended it as a friendly place. Not so! We had to trek down to the tourmaline for pool tickets, charging 350 rupees PER HOUR (compared to the Queen's Hotel - 250 rupee for 3 hours). We waited 20 minutes for the manager to issue the tickets and the empty pool was nothing to write home about. If you are staying at a guest house and looking for somewhere to cool off in the afternoon sun - do not go here.
