Visited with extended family. Booked the family room at last moment. Everything was smooth. Co-operative. Wifi connection was good. It was less crowded. They can arrange for home cooked food, provided we order upfront. Rate is reasonable. Close to BSNL office.

Poor maintenance.. Went with family and booked 3 rooms..room service was pathetic and it takes more time to deliver coffee and tea.TV was not working in one of the room..frequent power disruption and no hot water facility. Approach road is very bad and steep to climb for elderly..
