I spent the last weekend of December with wife and two children, along with families of two brothers, sister and my parents.
Welcome drink was a cup of tea. There was NO heating in the cottages, in deep winter! Repeated cajoling was necessary to get some firewood for fireplace. Additional charges were being applied for things like soft drinks, etc. Most distressingly, the management misrepresented a jeep drive into the forest, to and from a local temple, in the opposite direction to the Corbett reserve, as a jeep wildlife safari!!
In summary, almost all aspects of the hotel and its management were poor quality, especially their attitude and prevarications. Not what you would expect for $500 for 3D-2N package around Christmas, by Indian or international standards.
Quality Inn/Choice International, are you listening?
