Worst Service, Skeletal Staff (the receptionist is the chef!!), No reception in the TV (reason given: monkey has broken the cable). Delayed Food, Bad Food, Did not get what I ordered. On the top of that, the menus seem to be no where found. Just Imagine, For 20 rooms in the hotel, and there are only 3 menus which are circulated around.
At the time of checkout, we were presented with a photocopied menu, which had different and exorbitant prices than the one we ordered from. Apart from giving you a high blood pressure and taking your moolah, there is nothing much this hotel /haveli/hostel can offer.
The property is nice, although is quite far from the Bird Sanctuary. An old dilapidated haveli has been converted into a hotel. Or should I say, is in the process of conversion.
