U will get just 30 sec hot water then water will be chill again.. 2. We called room service 10 times just to get one bottle of drinking water..... More

Location is good,receptionist is very friendly, that's the only two good things about this hotel. Rooms not maintained and were small. Breakfast was not good. Room service and housekeeping don't take phone calls. Won't recommend.

Enjoyed my stay here. Rooms were spacious & clean. Ambience was great. Staff were accommodating & polite; especially Abhi who was more than willing to help, informative & receptive to comments & feedback. Hotel had quite a few activities to keep one occupied. Food was very good too. Will recommend to friends & family :)

This place is amazing. They staff and place were both above my expectations. The rooms were big enough. Everything was there . Boating, swimming pool. The Manager arranged a house boat for us which was very near by. So with did not have to worry about anything. I would love to visit this place again.
