“Good but noisy stay”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

My husband and I stayed in Usha Ascot over Christmas 2013, for 3 nights. We were pleased with the friendliness and warmth of the staff, especially the manager. The food is also good, especially the lunch which turned out to be a sumptuous gujarati thali. Though we walked over to Lords Central for Christmas lunch - a gujarati thali no matter how good doesn't work for Xmas - we didn't miss non veg much. The rooms are clean and well furnished, but beware of the monkeys lurking around, so forget about opening the windows.
The only trouble we had was that guests here usually travel in large groups so it can get quite unsettling for couples who looking for peace and quiet. And the evening entertainment - a ghazal night - can get a tad monotonous if you're spending more than a couple of nights. All in all, recommended for a pleasant stay if you have a tolerance for a lil cacophony.

We had no complaints about this hotel. The location, service, cleanliness, room were all great. The food was average though, except for the night that some regular NRI visitors were in town and they made some special food.

The property is good. Food is decent. However, rooms are not upto the mark. The rooms offered to us (No View rooms) initially were damp and we asked for a change immediately. We had to upgrade to finally get a decent room.

The pool setting for dinner is good. They have some light gazals going on (same gazals everyday it seems).

Room Tip: The No View rooms are really bad. There is a wall right out side the room. Also the rooms are damp a...

Good:
- Fantastic resort: Nice pool and surrounding area
- Excellent staff - very courteous and served us well
- Great food: Take the food package - its worth it
- Hotel arranged excellent games/magic show/night jungle tour/puppet show etc.

Bad
- Nothing as such. the rooms are average. Fixtures etc in rooms/bathrooms are kind of old
but anyways one tends to spend most of the time around the pool area

Room Tip: Any pool facing room should be good - Take the room based on the number of people in the group. I th...

Reasons to avoid this resort
1. Bathroom taps are licking.
2. Same repetative music at every night.
3. Although room has a nice balcony but can't stand there forget to relax there. (Monkey nuencence)
4. Rooms need renovation. Old tv sets without remote. Ask for deluxe room instead of super deluxe. Deluxe rooms are newly renovated. I feel cheated.
5. Food was good but same type of veg food every day with little modification.
6. No mobile coverage.
7. Swimming pool is not clean.It's a monkey's pond.

Only plus point is that it has a nice cooperative staff.

Property is good no doubt, but room was stunning no mobile network coverage. ONLY best thing about this hotel is food. Staff is also good. Balconies are only to show you are not allowed to sit due to monkey. If anybody need real picture of this hotel room mail me amitnkt@gmail.com.

Room Tip: I would suggest don't Book in advance go and check rooms before checkin......
