Pros: hotel exterior is full of greenry, rooms are simple but clean, food is very tasty, staff is very supportive Cons: hotel location is far away from most of the points, dont expect any modern amenities, adherence to schedule for food timings lagging a bit. Overall nice place to stay with your family and friends.

Location is awesome. But a slight expensive one. Great place to stay. Rooms are of good quality. Food is ok. Will definitely visit again. Nice place for a short vacation. Highlight is the location n size of the room which makes the hotel stand out as a unique one.

The location of the hotel is excellent inside the green and peace of nature, much away from the hustle and bustle of the daily monotony and the service provided by the hotel was also good. Room rent is also affordable

Don't look for any extravagent things here but courteous staff and very clean room/hotel. Simple place surrounded by dense forest and tucked away quietly away from the market place. Food is simple too, not very elaborate though.
