Pool was closed and 'under maintenance.' We...

This hotel was our first stop on a Voyages Jules Verne tour of Karnataka state and I loved it. Beautiful building, particularly liked the open balconies around the rooms and the older furniture. The service in both the reception and restaurant was first class and the food was great.

We stayed 6 nights in the hotel, in one of their Heritage Rooms. The rooms are large and comfortable. Nice breakfast, excellent service and a very good restaurant (veg and non veg) in a lovely garden setting. It i conveniently located. You can reach a lot of places by foot. A very good choice. We would definitely stay there again.
