Travelled with my elderly mum and her friend. Basic room, my bathroom was smelly. No hot water the first day until we realised it was available for limited times in the mornings. The staff (other than reception staff who were pleasant) were pushy. They were keen to organise triips for us and then asked for extortiante amount of money afterwards. To the point that everytime we turned they were there. They overshadowed what was meant to be a trip of a lifetime for my mum.
There was no warm cosy feeling about this place. Forget the food, eat around the corner at Hari Ganga where you were made to feel welcomed and special.
If you do stay here be alert and watch your back. It would be fine for a night but not beyond.
Hotel also needs to be updated, gloomy looking and well overpriced.
