It is a fancy place. Probably a bit old. But one person made us love this place and that is Mr. Krishnamurthy. We had a beautiful time there and we hope to spend many more beautiful days there in the coming months. The view is awesome and breathtaking and as it on a higher level, the mist envelops the hotel.... More

Location & Accommodation is excellent. Food taste not up to the expectation. If you travel by Bus as group, you may to inform hotel in advance to pick you up in a closest drop point, as the approach road is narrow for about 1KM & Bus can not travel beyond this point. CAR No problem.

It's a big disappointment when you have huge expectations from a hotel which is associated with legendary actor Mithun Chakraborty. The hotel looks good from outside but the rooms and the interior is simply crap. No Fans, forget Air Conditioners and rooms unclean and untidy. Will never recommend this property to anyone in future. The breakfast we had in the... More

Well, expected to be a very nice hotel. However, hugely disappointed. Beds are not comfortable. There is no Set top Box. Very poor quality TV connection and even poorer internet connectivity, though these things you can ignore on a leisure trip. Food is average. Repetitive Breakfast. Service is Good though.
