We went to mysore for a wedding for a couple of days and didnt like the accommodation so decided to check into the Windflower. We called up the hotel the night before and asked them what rate would they do for us. The guy on the phone quoted some exorbitant amount, which was almost the same they charge for a weekend package. We had to bargain him down asking him how can he charge us so much as against his package and actually asking him if he wanted guests rather than rooms being empty. A bit of a put down as most hotels are happy to put people up and usually give reasonable rates for a day if there are rooms available. Finally, we negotiated a price and gave our credit card details, being abruptly told that we will be charged the next day whether we come or not.....we informed we will be there at 3.00 pm once the wedding finishes.
However, once we got into the hotel it was fantastic....the room was amazing and we had fantastic sleep...the bathroom was really nice too, though no tubs in the basic level rooms. They talk of a secret balcony, but its really not secret as the person living above you can see into it. The breakfast was ok, normal fare and we ordered some sandwiches for lunch which were nice. The pool was great, so nice and calm...
When we booked the hotel, we asked for a late checkout at 12.30 which was agreed to, but when we called to check about it, they said they cannot do that and wanted us to check out at 11.00. Also they call at 9.00am to check everyday if we are coming for breakfast....what if you want to have a lie in?
I would return to the hotel anytime, but customer service at the desk...i am not sure about.
