We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. We took a tip from TripAdvisor and asked for a room in the new section, having also looked at the original rooms. The bathrooms are much nicer in the new part. Rooms are a good size with balconies. The beds are comfortable and, if you have a second floor room, you can see the Cauveri River.
We had paid for WIFI but couldn't get on line. Eventually they told us that the best room for WIFI was no 66, so we had to change rooms - and then everything was OK!
Food was very good. We don't like Buffet but the a la carte was fine. Once we had established that we would always be wanting a la carte, our waiter would come and discuss things at breakfast that we might like for dinner, so that special ingredients could be bought. The other thing we particularly liked was that they often have classical Indian musicians - something we have found less evident in hotels on this trip to India.
There is a good pool. They do take groups in this hotel, but it all seems to work. The service is friendly and somehow better than you expect. WIFI didn't always work.
