The hotel is a very large colonial palace in need of some renovation. It sits on some stunning grounds with magnificent views over Dal Lake. Our room was very spacious and modern with all the right amenities. I couls really only find two faults, internet usage was billed and the small swimming pool was small and indoor when the summer weather was more than warm enough to enjoy an utdoor pool. We ate in the 2 restaurants (one buffet one a la carte) and the food was consistently good.
