We stay in Junior Suite in September 2022. Superb heritage property. Overall service is very welcoming. Great garden. Well maintained. All the reception staffs were very polite and welcoming. It’s difficult to name everyone in this review. They were all very well trained and caring. Restaurant chef Mr Ramalingam needs a special mention. Wonderful person with many talents. He makes Excellent food and very hygienic too as he himself is a certified food safety officer. Apart from him, all other staffs were very nice too. Mr Anand serves with a nice smile always. Housekeeping staff were very attentive. Garden team was very hardworking to keep it the same since many years. One may feel the age of the property in some ways but the charm compensates for it. Its walkable to the shopping areas yet pretty isolated.
