Deepa, the lady who owns the place, is out there making dishonest money. You WILL be cheated at levels unimagined. For context, she agreed to rent out a room (specifically chosen in person) for 2 months (for two people, combined). She insisted on an advance to reserve the room and the balance for the 1st month was paid the day I reached. All this was agreed on in writing as well (serving as proof). Here are some pointers on what daylight robbery looks like: - She is no longer registered under OYO. Her contract expired a few years ago. She still uses their brand name. This means, you cannot complain to OYO for poor service and fraud. Furthermore, she can charge people for whatever she feels like. - She informed me of extra cleaning charges of Rs.1000/month AFTER I paid the advance. Because of this, I couldn’t reconsider my decision to stay. - She then informed me that I will have to clean and change my own bed linen because her staff couldn’t come. Then why charge me Rs.1000/month for cleaning? - After the first week itself, she started pestering me for the next month’s payment, threatening to cut off the electricity. - She increased the tariff for the second month with no option for me to reconsider my stay. She gave me an ultimatum to either pay higher charges or move to a much smaller room. She called this “mutual understanding”. I, obviously, denied. - She kept bringing up excuses for extra charges. For example, she asks for extra charges for my companion; extra charges if she finds any stains on the bed and bath linens. - She originally said the staff couldn’t come but actually she just didn’t call them because she wanted to pay less daily wages. They were called only on the weekends when there were group visits. They received drinking water services, cleaning, bed linen change, etc. at NO EXTRA cost. - A glass table kept in the common area had a crack and she demanded I pay Rs.700 to get it repaired (the damage wasn’t even my responsibility). Later (at the end of the stay) she raised the price to Rs.1000. - The TV in the room was not working, the bathroom door did not close from the outside and the dish TV was not recharged. Also, this review has pictures of some of the room provisions: disgusting pillows, damaged bedsheets, etc. The WIFI is a farce. There’s no signal in the rooms. It’s just limited to the reception at the entrance. - The property experienced 3-5 hours of power-cut almost everyday. She had a generator on the property but wouldn’t turn it on. - The property is not family friendly as she often had large groups of men/young boys who would come, get drunk in the common area and make a lot of noise even at 3 a.m. There was no noise curfew. - She wouldn’t provide drinking water to the guest area; My companion had to go to her house (separate building) and carry back a 25L pot of water every 2nd day to keep in the common guest area. When she started playing these dirty tricks, I used to question her demands and wouldn’t yield so easily. She stopped responding to me and would ask her staff to find out information from me (he would ask me questions about my whereabouts, my plans for the day, etc. and report to her). She started pestering my companion on the phone and ultimately, I had to block her on my companion’s phone. These are just a few of the points that I could recollect at the time of writing the review. In a nutshell, she’s all kinds of a crook.

The rooms are clean. The AC was really good. And accommodation for extra persons was also provided in a great way. Clean swimming pool, with a recycling plant (this was unusual for such a resort). Very thoughtfully planned hut for party lovers. One can expect to spend a weekend here, and if you would like to cook for yourself there are provisions available. One thing that the property can do to improve is provide some better utensils for cooking and some personnel for helping in cooking with nominal charges.
