Well, it looked like a new makeover to an old one..they have done a decent job with furniture etc, but perhaps it was monsoon..and my luck!
We reached at 6pm and after a bit of search in market area, got a price of 1600 for non ac room with them, but if you ask for a bill, they will charge 22% more..!!! That is how some places save on taxes I guess!!! If you want to pay by credit card, they will ask for 2% extra too.
The room looked and felt damp, no no..wet literally! I asked if I could get an iron, might as well press the bed and pillows to make them a bit dry...they did not have that too!
we left the fan on and stepped out for a few hours so that the wet floor dries up and hoping that the bed feels a little less wet!
Cleanliness may be a soft spot as monsoon can literally get fungus anywhere in western ghats..they had put brand new doors with polish and even that got mold..
Tea was nice but I have had better even in small budget hotels.
We went for a stroll in the morning and returned at 11:30am, thinking 12 noon to be check out as it standard everywhere...the owner almost startled us by saying that we exceeded our stay as hotel check out time is 9am..if it is really true, then what a rip off!!! Well, we told them that we will be out in 5 minutes, we were not charged anything more.
On a sunny warm day, I might just go back to pick a deal, but not otherwise!
