“A quiet retreat and a homely stay with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2011

Though the hotel looks very Innocuous when you see it from outside, but the hotel grows onto you! The service is good and friendly and the rooms big and comfortable. The new renovated wing is really good and there is ample space eveywhere! The bathrooms are squeaky clean which is the first thing I look in a hotel.

We started out NorthEast India trip with this hotel. Hotel staff and service was awesome. We were getting typical home style food three times a day and whenever we ask for tea, they served hot tea without any time boundary.

The staff will smile you and ready to help you anytime.

Specially if you love North Indian food and want a relaxed vacation, I recommend you to give first preference to "The Soods". I describe this hotel in one sentence - "it's another home away from home"

Overall good experience. Food was the best part of the hotel. Avoid the Junior Suits. Otherwise, other Suits are decent size and with a view.
Appox 2 KM from the market. The hotel staff were freindly.
