I booked a trip from Goa to Hampi with a driver and overnight accommodation through Unique Tours and Travels. My main goal was to spend time at Hampi. The train was fully booked so took a car and driver and in retrospect am glad I did this as I would not have chosen to stay in Hospet but in Hampi.
This hotel was clean and I felt very safe. As with all things India there are issues - needed to call twice to get a towel for my room, room service you sign the check after you finish the meal. Not huge issues.
The room service menu was very reasonably priced and a good selection. The breakfast was quite ordinary, but there was toast and coffee and was offered eggs so all was good in my world.
They have a nice looking large swimming pool but it was empty so did jot get to use it - it is winter after all, albeit it was very warm.
The manager of the hotel was very helpful and directed me where to choose to go for the Tuesday evening and gave me a map. Sunset Pointe is a great place.
The next morning they gave my driver the names of the best places to see for four hours of sightseeing. If I had more than a day I would have done more walking but with only a few hours each day, having a driver was wonderful.
The room also had a safe - always a good thing and something I was concerned about since needed to take my passport - you need a passport in India for every hotel you check into in India.
The shower was large and had so many shower heads I cannot remember how many, and the water pressure was very good, and plenty of toiletries and bench space.
The mattress was okay - not good, not bad, and I slept fine.
There was no view, well it was over an empty lot with the usual Indian rubble, etc.
A newspaper was delivered to my room in the morning and there is tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and a fridge.
If you have a driver stay at this hotel - would stay again.
