The service was excellent as well. The staff were very friendly and polite. There were a few occasions when the WIFI kept dropping but overall good...

This hotel is ideally situated within Oyster Bay and is conveniently placed for both the beach as well as local restaurants, cafés, and shops. For those on a budget, local bajajis, or tuk-tuks are available outside the hotel, in addition to the taxi service provided by the hotel to get to these venues.

This hotel was booked with some skepticism due to the varied reviews and the low cost, and as we approached the hotel, my hopes were low.

While this hotel is not on the shore, the rooms and service more than made up for the not ideal (but still very good) location. First of all, the rooms are spacious, clean, and elegant.

The hotel caters for the Indian community only, evident in the menu, all Indian food, whilst I love Indian food, I travel continuously and sometimes stay in the same hotel for 10 to 15 days at a time, lack of menu is an issue.

This is more of a business hotel (no pool, no outdoor area), but it was excellent and the staff was great. The room was very large, clean and comfortable. It was close to places we needed to go to and it was also close to the beach and to the Oyster Bay Shopping Mall.
