“Fantastic view of the bay. Everything else is disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

Pros :
1] Fantastic view of the bay. The view from the restaurant and the rooms is simply breath taking
2] Rooms are fairly silent and sleep quality is good

Cons:
1] Room service is very poor. Though the menu is extensive, normally just one or two items are available at any given point of time. Quality of food is average
2] Lot of stray dogs on the property, with the accompanying hygiene issues all over the place. Room service does not clear out vessels which are kept outside rooms after guests have dinner at night. These vessels are picked up only in the morning, giving ample time for the stray dogs to lick these vessels clean at night...
3] ACs are non functional.
4] Walls and wooden fixtures inside rooms show signs of decay
5] Rats happily traverse from room to room, from holes in the walls/cupboards
6] The credit card machine did not work when I was checking out (at 5:30 AM to catch a flight). Thankfully, I had sufficient cash to settle the bill

Andamans have always been a favorite with our family, as we have visited it several times. And for stay, we cannot think of anything other than Megapode's nest. The cottages are lovely, overlooking the sea. Food is excellent, we tried the buffet which had a range of delicacies particularly, some delicious fish dishes. Staff is warm and friendly. Keeping this a base, you can visit the havelock island for a day or two and other attractions like jolly boy, cellular jail, corbyn's cove, ross island and many more islands.

the hotel is probably the worst I have stayed at.... it is very old and the property itself shows signs of it in the room interiors, the sheets and the bed are dirty, fan and air-conditioning are probably as old as the hotel itself.... it is also owned by govt, the service your get truly lives up to poor standards.... there may be some rooms which could have a good view - but not all rooms do - so beware of that as well.....

This was totally a new experience...located in the beautiful place opposite to the beautiful view of the blue sea..and in total isolation..with a little off dirt road leading up to the entrance..this is totally a different experience with the rooms which are quite nice and the food was also up to the mark..specially the sea food! Thumbs up for this!
