After booking this hotel, I was rather in a fix when I started reading its reviews from a few sites. So, I became very apprehensive when I reached the hotel in the forenoon and started throwing a few tantrums about the manner in which we were received and about a few more things though they were quite as per standards. It is only later that I realised I was viewing everything as per the reviews that I had read. I threw every effect of the review out of my mind and started looking at the hotel anew.
The rooms though small were well kept and adequately furnished with the required things like TV, telephone, geyser, a variety of liquids like shampoo, bathing and face wash gels and moisturisers, neat towels and marble flooring. On request, our family of 3 adults and two children (6yrs and 2yrs) were given two rooms one atop another, as a single unit. The check-in formalities were pleasant. The hotel staff removed all my apprehensions during the check-in and I too was quite happy to see the manner in which the rooms were kept and the politeness of the staff.
Having dumped our luggage, we went for a boating trip to the nearby boat house. The boating is in an artificial lake and we enjoyed boating for a good half hour. The park adjoining the lake was not well kept. We then decided to have lunch. Since we still had apprehensions about the hotel food, we started hunting for some restaurant nearby. Finding none, we resigned to ordering our food from the Hotel. The lunch turned out delicious and we were surprised that the food quality was much different from what was given in the reviews. Having had lunch, we took siesta and woke up in the evening. There was a lot of free space to play around. There was also a small park with adventure activities and the usual children play things like swing, see-saw, merry-go-around etc. We preferred playing in the open space and had loads of fun chasing each other and also playing hide and seek.
The dinner served by the Hotel room service was also lip-smacking. We enjoyed each spoon of our food and again were highly appreciative of the food.
The next day breakfast was South-Indian with Idli, pongal, vada, chutney and sambar. The spread was a buffet one in the space in front of the hotel reception. The arrangements, layout and service was excellent. The breakfast was quite delicious and we had our stomach fill.
We departed soon after breakfast with pleasant memories of the place.
