The rooms were pathetic however big.the carpets were torn, clogged drains, and insufficient electrical points making our 1 night stay nightmarish.Though would give credit to the hotel staff for being honest and return my credit card which was left behind.

Checked in here and the staff and management seemed to have read the previous reviews as most highlighted problems have been taken care of. The rooms are dated and could use some upkeep though... it's poya day here so most of the bar and pub facilities are shut down so can't comment on those...

Experience wasn't good at all. Rooms are extremely uncomfortable, toilets unclean and staff unconcerned. Actually, during our stay there were already existing customers who were unhappy and have had a lot of inconvenience with the staff and the rooms. The staff remained unconcerned and indifferent to customers' problems. Overall, an avoidable experience.

I have stayed in this hotel for one day. The view from my rooms was extraordinary. The food spread was also very large. The hotel had heaters in each room which was good since the temperature there is cold. Overall the hotel is a good place to be.

I am not going to say too many detrimental things about the hotel but it is not one that I would ever stay in again as it was quite shabby. Our room was on the 3rd floor and there is no lift. Reception staff slack and not friendly. Breakfast was due to start at 6.30 am but by 6.45 staff...

Did the reservation through an online reservation company. But had to call & email more than 05 times to get a confirmation. We checked in at the hotel last 13th August but had to wait 10 -15 min to get a room. Also front office staff nor the room attendant who accompanied us to the room did't bother to explain...
