We upgraded on arrival and spent two nights in a lakeside cottage which was lovely and we were told that we would have to change to the original room we booked for the last night as our room had been previously booked, our original room was just behind the lakeside cottages. However when we moved room we were told that...

We came to this place because our original homestay isn't as expected. Accommodation is in bungalows by a lakeside and the seating is really nice. The rooms are basic but comfortable and the staff are pleasant and helpful. Food is also decent, freshly cooked and tasty

The hotel is situated right on the banks of the lake with beautiful views from the cottages on the lakeside. The rooms are small but clean. There was no hot water to shower in the morning and the staff often turn off the power to the AC to save electricity. The hotel staff are rude and hung up on our...

Location of hotel is excellent but service is moderate. Hot water availability is there. Choose this hotel if you are looking for budget hotel. This is the only budget hotel available with great location.

I stayed in this place for a night. We had booked the lake facing cottage. The property is just mind blowing. Lake view with cool breeze all times. The hospitality is also nothing less than a 5 star. Very tasty food at reasonable rates. Very cooperative staff. Must try the dal tadka there. Lip smacking. It is the only cottage...
