The tour company...

What we enjoyed, however, were the grounds which were extensive. The hotel grows its own vegetables and we enjoyed seeing the well-tended crops, the beautiful birds that inhabit the hotel grounds, and...

Nice hotel for the region. Not many other options available in Varanasi. Nice grounds. Rooms were adequate but the bathroom needs to be upgraded. Food was very good. Hotel was clean and people were friendly. Really no significant issues with the hotel.
