After reading many reviews I booked this hotel. I drove down from Bangalore and reaching this place was no sweat. One big advantage was the hotel is located in city center. The reception was prompt but Bell Desk services were very poor. I booked the Premium room and despite that the services were not satisfactory. The washroom was not clean...

It's a maintained property. Breakfast buffet is good. Loved their south Indian spread along with continental food. However it's about 2 kilometres away from the white town so you need to take an auto everytime when you have to visit White Town.

Location It is located in the center of the town although little far from the beach. Property It is a big hotel with lots of rooms. It’s a typical hotel which you find at a tourist place. The hotel has a gaudy ambience. The lobby is normal with a few sit out and there are two restaurants on either side....

Excellent hotel, good buffet. Only challenge could be, it is slightly away from most of the attractions but you can always hire an auto. I also did not like 1 thing that they charged child menu price for my son just because he was sitting next to us (did not eat anything)

Such a nice hotel I have ever stayed. Rooms are clean and good ambiance. Value for money. I recommend this hotel to everyone To the management: The bed sheets were little dirty - please take care of this as this will make a negative impact

The rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable. Food was strictly average. The breakfast buffet can have more variety. The kettle provided in the room did not work occasionally. Service was average. Good for a weekend stay

Pros: 1. Excellent location 2. Great b'fast taste. Especially the sambhar. 3. Highly responsive staff Cons: 1. Average lunch experience. Food quality was not good. Probably because they were in a hurry to shut down for lunch. 2. Limited toiletries in the bathroom. Could have asked for more though. 3. Unregulated basts of air conditioning in the "Renaissance dining room"....

The rooms were good and spacious. The staff were very courteous. I had to requested for an early check-in and they provided it with minimal hassle. Also, it is located in a good locality and has all the possible requirements either in the hotel or nearby. i'd certainly give a thumb's up to the hotel.
