            Excellent location and decour. Amazing food and service. Every thing seemed perfect

          • 9.2

            Everything was so comfortable and nothing was too much trouble.

            My only gripe would be that Wi-Fi should be free at a hotel of that calibre.

          • 8.8

            The staff were extremely helpful and Friendly and the food was delicious. The overall experience was wonderful and we had a great stay at the hotel!!

          • 6.6

            Customer service is the best and all the staff is very welcoming. Food was awsome. Buffet breakfast is must to have. View from restaurant is breathtaking.

            Parking is good for the security of the car but not a very impressive way to start the stay, as have to take the Hotel cab to go to the hotel. 2 single mattress on king bed. Totally not acceptable. Limited internet for only 30 minutes per stay. Fast speed unlimited internet is much appreciated. No Dental kit in the bathroom. Not enough milk for the tea in the fridge. Rs 350 cab charge one way to the Mall

            why wifi is paid after 30 minutes of free use

          • 7.0

            Public areas had Colonial feel. Food very good.

            Room was dated and not good value for money. Wifi not included in price.
