We arrived on the 17th of May 2014. We were taken to the bar for the welcome refreshments and the bar had an awful smell. First impression of the hotel was horrible. Then we were taken to our rooms (UK and UL) and as alway I went to check out the washroom and it had a smell as well. The toilet floor is very old and not very clean. The room has old furniture and they are not comfortable at all. The plunge pool is just a big tub!. A huge bed but not very comfortable pillows. Then after a few hours a complimentary fruit platter was brought into the room and that had a smell as well so we had to leave it out side. And no WIFI in the room!
Then we decided to order the lunch from the room service menu and I must say the food was very tasty.
The dinner menu does not have a great selection hence I ended up eating only the main course. The staff at the restuarant were not very friendly and tend to ignore your requests. Food takes along time to come.
We paid 32000 rupees for a triple room and 26000 rupees for a double and it's not worth the money at all. The hotel needs to be redone. It has an amazing view but all waisted due to rooms not been maintained properly.
