    A good place for economic stay. My room was large enough for 2 people. It had all standard amenities. Breakfast was nice with a good spread. Surprised to see Idly and Sambhar. Ambience was good and quiet too.

    Would the hotel provide storage for excess luggage if we stay over night before a safari trip? The storage would be for 5 days.

    How much is the airport shuttle and is it available early in the morning? Our flight leaves at 5:10am so we would need to leave the hotel at about 2:30am.
