This was the fourth hotel on our first trip to India.A lovely young lady greeted us with garlands and took us to a very pretty suite.She also provided a lovely birthday cake(on my birthday a couple of days later).Small sunny turret sitting room,very small bathroom but lovely bedroom.Beautifully decorated. Gold draped four poster.Small view of lake.
However initially disappointed as building works in progress but obviously on hold for tourist season.Pool in gorgeous position on roof overlooking the lake.
There was also a very loud buzzing at night which kept me awake.Couldnt work out where it came from Staff not really interested.Had to turn off a/c as that just made sound even worse.
Apart from the young lady and young porter, the rest of the staff we felt needed a bit of customer service training.They all seemed a bit jaded (perhaps end of season boredom?) and this came through in the service.A lot of hovering for tips even though there is a box in the foyer to place tips at the end of a stay.Good idea as all staff can then have a share. Had urgent reason to call my 90 year old father in the UK but really stuggled with reception to help me.(No signal on my mobile)Was getting quite distressed but to no avail Eventually had to wait for our guide who gladly lent me his mobile.
I wouldnt let any of the above problems stop me from staying here again as hotel,pool location all good
