A beautiful place with a spectacular view! I don't know whether I'd credit the hotel or the city itself but the hotel has got a great view of a nearby lake surrounded by greenery and mountains - it couldn't get more scenic! If you're looking for peace and tranquility - this is one place I'd strongly recommend you to consider. Very helpful staff, good room service, nice clean big rooms, comfortable beds and breathtaking views from the room! Internet was charged at a nominal fee and even then the speed was below average but thats ok, I guess. Like I said, not a place for business. Somewhat away from the main city so transportation will be a problem, but the hotel staff is very kind in arranging alternative means of commuting. The buffet was nice. I reached on time for it and yet they had cleared the spread but after requesting the staff, they were kind enough to bring me what I wanted from the kitchen and served me like a king! If you're on holiday - you dont want to miss this place but if you're on business and have no transport - you better miss this place!
