What an excellent hotel. We were dropped off at 10 in the morning having stayed overnight on a houseboat. Within 10 minutes a room was ready despite their check in time being 1pm. The staff were friendly, the food excellent and the pool fabulously warm. We had a problem with our air conditioning leaking which they tried to fix but it was only short term. We were offered another room but as we were half way into a 2 night stay we didn't want to pack and move. We had a candlelight dinner on our last night which was very romantic. Our view of the lake from our room would have kept us there for hours it was so interesting watching the different boats and wildlife. The menu is large which covers those who don't eat Indian food but as a veggie who does, I loved every meal. We borrowed a bike one morning and cycled into town which takes nerves in a few places but mostly was a great way to see the area before coming back and jumping into the pool to cool down. Definitely stay at this hotel and spoil yourself as we did after a hectic week of touring before going home.
