Everything about this place is great. Now that I have started with that sentence let me elaborate.
We checked in here after a long drive from Hassan through a few bits of terrible state highways and a long stretch of single carriage national highway leading up to Hospet from Chitradurga. From the moment we got in the experience was so good that we managed to forget the tiring journey. Greeted by traditional drummer at the entrance, to the welcome drinks and the seamless check in all worked well.
The hotel was running on a shoestring staff due to the off season period (May - the hottest period) that we were in. The hotel essentially has two sections. The main building where the lobby is also houses the restaurants, bar, business rooms and the suites. The other section is at the rare of the main building adjoining the swimming pool and these have a series of rooms in two storied buildings that the management calls the standard rooms. In my opinion, if you are on a vacation, these rooms are a far better option than those in the main building as they come with balconies opening out to adjoining sugar cane fields or onto the swimming pool. The main building was non-functional during my stay so my opinion is merely a guess. Am told by the staff that the rooms in the main building is steeped in opulence and comfort but I was more than happy with the room I got.
The coffee shop at the hotel serves multi cuisine and the waiters do a fabulous job. Room service was also excellent. The stay comes with breakfast and they have a very decent spread to offer, The swimming pool is a very big attraction at the hotel and it is well maintained. I have only good memories of this place and I must note that it is value for money and despite running on low man power they manage to do a great job. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to visit Hampi
I recommend the standard rooms in the cottage section at the rare of the hotel. Ask for a room overl...
