First off, it was a last minute booking and being in the peak season, we were just glad that we could find a place. But that is all we were happy about.
There is nothing that is grand about Rishab. It is NOT a resort, not by miles.
When we checked in, instead of giving us the rooms, the checkin clerk asked us what was the agreed upon rate for us since we had dobe the reservation through a friend. We found that very interesting. If we didnt know the rates, they would have charged us more probably. I was told by our driver that it is a common practice in the area to cross check and if one falls for the trick, they end up spending more.
The checkin looked seedy at best. The rooms were adorned by hand hung placards mentioning if it was a deluxe or a super deluxe room. The rooms were spacious enough for an overnight stay, i must admit. However, the linens were not maintained, and on requesting to change them, we were told it can happen only the next day as all the remaining have gone to the laundromat for cleaning.
The elevator was turned off and had to be turned on by the receptionist
The bathrooms were not very cleanly maintained either.
There were various etchings on the menu warning visitors not to eat food in the hotel restaurant. Since it was late at night we decided to go ahead and ate in the restaurant. The food was digestable.
Checkout was a breeze since we paid for the night earlier.
I wouldnt recommend this place unless this is the only accomodation in the town.
