25 years and staying in a diverse range of hotels, this was the most disappointing ever in India. I thought I would give it a go instead of the Taj
The hotel has friendly staff and it is relatively clean. The rooms are ok, but lack character, more like a travel lodge. Not 5 star. The swimming pool is lovely, but small, with 5/6 sun loungers, ridiculous in a hotel this size.
Main issue was the pricing of drinks and food. Yes Imported goods are taxed at 60% but they are much more expensive than other real 5 star hotels. Staying there and after leaving I just felt I was being robbed and for what? A travel lodge room and a ok meal with an Indian beer that they charge x 10 for...at least. Avoid.
