We stayed there in Feb 2015 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. And we found our stay very pleasant. The staff was good, room was clean and spacious, very good view of mountains and expressway from the cafeteria, tasty food, large buffet spread, decent swimming pool and a very good garden to relax. Lot of indoor places to spend quality time....

Though the hotel is hard to locate as there are no hoardings guiding to the hotel the ambience is excellent. The views are so mesmerising and the staff is too courteous. The infrastructure of the hotel is quite big with so many places where you can photo shoot .

Good mountain view spoiled with construction and busy roads nearby... Food and service is pathetic...The construction is very old.. Many weddings keep happening there.. Had seen the decoration when we had been there... Unfortunately the rooms and passageways were very smelly... Give it a skip.

Duke's is by far, one of my most favorite weekend getaway places. I simply love the rooms and views they offer. Watching amazing sunrises from the bed on a lazy weekend really rejuvenates you.
