The rooms have very low ceilings very basic amenities and basic decor. Everything is old and is almost in shambles. Management and staff is cooperative and courteous. The Lobby and Terrace...

A beautiful hotel clean staff excellent, but only being half board we found the drinks expensive, you had to pay for wifi, and the meals at lunch time were quite expensive. We couldn,t fault anything else because it was in a beautiful area.

The location of the Leela is great…. BUT not a five star property at all! The rooms are old, the dark wood makes it all the more dreary. Breakfast was OK, but cannot be compared with the Leela in Chennai… In my opinion the hotel is really old and needs an upgrade. Bathrooms are a bit dicey since there is...
