This property surprised us pleasantly. Honestly, we did not expect so much out a government run property. Must say, it is a great value proposition.
We were there for six nights, had taken deluxe double rooms and were in the old block. Had a great ocean-beach view. Had nice, clean and spacious rooms, having huge balconies with a breath-taking ocean view. Bathrooms were nice and clean though did not have bathtubs.
It’s a no frills hotel which provides you with all the comfort to have a great family holiday - does not have gym or swimming pool though. We liked the food and the service was decent.
A useful tip - Local cabs can be expensive but not many people know that APTDC has a full-day cab hire option which comes at almost half the rate that the local cabbies charge. Contact details can be found on the flyer available at the front desk.
Also, for anybody travelling to Araku by train, we did not find the train journey as great as some reviewers had projected it to on this site. The journey was a bit tedious and the reviews were overrated. We had the first class tickets and the view was not very good from the compartment so one had to stand in the gallery to get some view which lasted for about 30-40 minutes…
