A heritage hotel which promises a lot but fell below our expectations. Senior citizens and those with leg problem will find this place unsuitable as entry to the reception and hotel is down a flight of stairs and thereafter more stairs to climb up and down before one reaches the lake view rooms. That itself is a misnomer..one has to peer through the tree cover to get a glimpse of the lake. The rooms are well done and furniture and furnishings very contemporary...the wooden ceiling are done beautifully with a polished finish. The bathroom though small does not have a bath tub, needed to soak in during the cold weather. The Gurney House restaurant serves Indian, Chinese, and continental food ...the place is done up with memoralia of the royal family spread on the counter tops and at strategic places. The fireplace gives a feeling of warmth. Found the reception staff rather stiff and not really friendly and forthcoming in helping with information on places of interest to visit. Housekeeping staff and restaurant staff were efficient and very polite and ready to attend to any malfuncting. Comfortable but little pricey specially in winter when occupancy rate is practically 2%
