They provide a complementary shuttle service to the Lake/Mall road area. None of the reception lines were working for me to even call for the shuttle service. The LAN lines were down and so there was no WiFi. When I asked reception when it will get fixed, they provided a nonchalant "Oh we don't know. It should get fixed soon."...

This is one of the best resorts I have ever stayed at. Not because it is insanely lavish but because it is incomparably charming and is in the lap of nature. I can't stress how amazing the ambiance of the resort is. It's like you've stepped back into history. The corridor walls are covered with historical pictures of British Raj....

The hotel is good and comfortable. The location is a shade tricky as the hotel is situated at a height. Driving to and from the hotel is bit unnerving. Also the large flight of stairs to cross to enter and leave the hotel can make you feel very stressed out. The room alloted to us was good but without any...
