Positive Reviews

Peaceful setting

The setting of the hotel suits well for those looking for cool and calm place for retreats. Visitors love the quiet and pollution-free verdant atmosphere, which offers cool ambience. They are pleased with the spacious lawn area and outside premises that put them in a good mood, to relax with friends and families.

Spacious and tidy rooms

According to guests, they have no qualms regarding the hotel accommodations. The luxurious rooms are big enough and well-organised. They add that the housekeeping team do a good job keeping them clean.

Nice facilities, exciting activities

Guests, particularly those with children, enjoy the facilities around the property. Their day is full of exciting indoor and outdoor activities provided by the resort. For families, the pool and playground area allow them to bond together.

Negative Reviews

Bathroom issues

Bathroom concerns and complaints are mentioned in the reviews. Guests point to the clogged drain pipes as the cause of the foul smell inside the shower area. They suggest that bathroom fittings need improvement and that bathmats should be provided to avoid slipping on wet floors.

Far from downtown

From guests’ perspective, it is a bit difficult to reach the property’s location, which is a little out of town, without their own vehicles. Besides, the public transport fare is quite pricey. Additionally, there is no shop or cafe nearby to spend their evenings.

Limited choices for breakfast

While they appreciate being served with a complimentary breakfast, still, guests wish to have more options, especially of the the non-veg variety. For them, toasts, eggs, mashed potatoes, and roasted tomatoes are okay, but these are quite incomplete without some bacon, salami, or sausages.
