This hotel is a good property at a good location. Bird sanctuary is just a km away. We loved walking back from the sanctuary to hotel. Boating too is nearby. However this hotel needs maintenance. Decent view of backwater. Food is average. Staff is helpful. Hot water is a problem and we had to followup many a times.

The location of the property is excellent with spacious rooms. The staff is polite and helpful. The food was good. The property also has indoor games like carom and table-tennis which we enjoyed. The swimming pool was rather clean as compared to other properties that we stayed at. One can just sit by the pool side and admire the backwaters... More
