“stay at Cecil”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The rooms are spacious and outside open space is huge. If you want that at any cost, then make up your mind to come here. If you don't mind dirty and torn sheets; if you don't mind lack of cleanliness, you may come here. If you just want a bed to sleep and a bucket to have bath, you may choose Cecil.
Other wise not and a big No.
No value for money.

Room Tip: Please do not choose any room

Rooms were very spacious and clean.. All basic facilities available and the british-era look of the rooms got us super impressed! Food(Lunch and dinner) were awesome.. though the breakfast was disappointing.. Service was nice.. a little away from the market.. so highly recommended for couples and friends. May be not the best place to be with kids.. but can serve just fine. Very quite and a beautiful hotel.. dont get depressed to see the entrances.. they r not that good!
Downside: No running hot water in our room.. not-so-good breakfast.. thats it.. overall it deserves a second visit!! :)

Will visit again...!
If you like huge spaces, old style living and looking for a quiet peaceful break then Cecil is the place.
If your kids like to play outdoors then Cecil is the place.
If you like (or can manage with) pure veg food (served hot), then Cecil is the place!

Rooms are huge. Too spacious and the food is also good. Only thing is if you need assistance, there is no room service bell. You need to go out and search for the attendant. even the location is good with lot of space around.

The location was fabulous . Rooms & buildings from outside looks nice , however inside there was aging effect seen in walls , furnitures & even in bathroom . Gujarati meal served here is a definite plus in terms of quality .
