This is undoubtedly the best hotel in Shimoga. But don't choose the hotel for this reason. This hotel has proven to me that even small town folks can provide world class service, at par with any 5 start hotel in metros in India.
The hotel itself is very good with 2 restaurants and a bar, big lobby, central location in the market. The only thing missing is a pool.
The staff of this hotel earns this hotel it's stripes. They are warm, welcoming, adjusting and very very polite. The reception, room service, restaurant staff, house keeping and even the external taxi service person left me speechless with their dedication and single minded focus on customer focus.
The staff provided everything I asked for. They even packed me a huge breakfast at 5 a.m. as I had a train to catch, that too complementary. The taxi provider would not allow me to take an auto rikshaw to the station and provided his taxi at 5.30 a.m. The wifi was complementary with good connectivity, the room was very well lighted and very spacious.
The breakfast was good and the room service meals were also good, although a bit spicy. They provided Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes, which was a surprise in a place like Shimoga.
In conclusion, choose this hotel not because of lack of other options but because of the sheer excellence and warmth of the staff.
