Reviewed 29 November 2016

We arrived into our room and it was un-breathable due to musty air. We obtained a room change and this room was better but was still musty. We then had to ask for the lights to be fixed as only 1 out 4 lights in the room were working. The TV did not work. There was no Hot water to the hand basin the pipe had been disconnected and crimped over. There was no Bathmat. The WIFI (lobby only) was not working and they kept saying "the man is coming". We were there for 2 nights and maybe he coame after we left. The lifts had a mind of their won and only worked when they felt like it or were fed. we got jammed in the lift that only went up 2 feet and stopped. we managed to pry the door open!

When we arrived the restaurant was not open as they did not have staff. The restaurant next door was brilliant and got our money for the second night as well.

Overall this looks like an upmarket hotel but lack of maintenance, and very poor management, and a no care policy gives this place a DO MISS for other travellers

Room Tip: Smell your room, check out everything else before unpacking

I found this hotel to be okay and not as bad as some of the reviews on here. I found my room to be clean, the bed was comfortable. Wifi only worked in the foyer, but this seemed to be the norm in Indian hotels during a 3 week tour. Shower was warm. Breakfast was great. I would stay here again.

We recently stayed here and the staff were excellent, especially the restaurant staff. Plenty of food choices for all palates. I was unwell and they allowed me a late checkout to give me more time to rest before an overnight train trip. Beautiful swimming pool. Wouldn't recommend the manicure though.
