“Clean rooms but over friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

Stayed there with our 2 children and mum and dad. Having booked the Rajwadi suite looking at the photos on their website but it was nothing like that. The photos seemed misleading.

The staff always want to know your whereabouts so they can send you to their allocated shops, e.g. they own a saree shop and will try their very best to make sure you only shop there.

They will also offer you a courtesy car to take you around but my advice is to make your own arrangements so you get some independance.

We ordered only breakfast and a few snacks/drinks but the bill at the end of the stay wasn't itemised so couldn't check for accuracy. The prices of food seem on the high side e.g. ice cream ordered was 4 times what you'd pay outside.

Stayed September 2010, traveled with family

Absolutely loved this hotel. Was there last year with my younger sister. The service was exceptional and the staff are great! The rooms are extremely clean and staff come and clean regulalry too! Being meat eaters we didn't order much food from there but when we did it was really nice. The only negative for me was being quoted one price at the beginning and then service charges being added on the bill without us being told at the time making it work out pretty expensive overall as we stayed there 3 weeks. I will still be using the same hotel when I go again this year but will be careful about sevice charges. I would defo recomment this hotel.

im just going to be honest with you it was a total..NIGHTMARE...the pics in the website (http://www.porbandaronline.com/sheetal/) are totally misleading (maybe even illegal to advertise those pics but I won't go there). The start was good as they were at the airport on time and we were greeted with flowers at this point we were all very happy and looking forward to the hotel.
20 mins later the nightmare started when we were shown the rooms, the manager decided to give us bigger rooms without consulting us, which we didn't mind. The bedsheets were filthy, we asked to change them but the ones that followed were worse. we lost our mobile so while looking for it we pull back the bedsheets to be greeted by a stained and very smelly mattress. It was impossible for us to sleep as in the middle of the night the air con went off which made it very difficult to breathe and sleep. To top it all off the bathroom door would not lock and when we reported this the manager he called the local carpenter who looked like someone from a hillbilly town in the states. It was a scene from a pantomime we had the carpenter breaking the door while the staff delivered tea for room service.
this is unconfirmed but my sister in law seems to feel there is some paranormal activity within the hotel.
finally when we mooved hotels the next day a member of the staff followed us to see if we went to another hotel.
stay at this hotel at your own risk but you will never see me there again, again, AGAIN!!!!!!

Hoel is clean and most importantly the bathroom was clean and had a bath tub and UK style sit down toilet. They even provide toilet paper !!! The staff are very helpful and friendly. Though be careful, you will find you have been charged for them being helpful. We were charged 65RS for a couple of phone calls to book a hotel in mumbai!!!. Free transfers to and from Porbandar airport. The food is great and tastes lovely, though it is very very very expensive by Indian prices. The chapatis are small and the size of puries. We did get a nice surprise of a complimentary cake. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is small. It's in a very good location, near shops etc. Rooms were being painted when I went and the fumes had got into some guests lungs that they had to move out. My bedroom was very big BUT the bathroom has lots of gaps behind the basin so getting lots of creepy things coming through. the decor was very rundown.

Room service food never came very hot, just warmish.

The owners are very nice people, very friendly and welcoming. They just need to patch up all their gaps and update on the decor to make it a more comfortable stay.
