Last week I've visited there.. I like the view from hotel and the breakfast but the room quality was not satisfactory. There was not a single charging point. We've used TV point for charging and there was problem of parking too.

Located just opposite to the lake. The hotel is infrastructure is average. The rooms are average. The food served in the hotel is not good. Rooms , food and facilities offered need to be improved. The only attraction to this hotel is its location on mall toad and opposite to lake.

As the title of my review points out, if only for the views one gets from this side of the property, the hotel is worth a try.... More

Booked three lake facing rooms. They were really great. The view of the lake was fascinating. Rooms were cosy and bears unique taste of interior decoration. Food quality is very good and quantity is ample. The best advantage of this hotel is it is just a stone throw distance from the mall road and the lake. So it is really... More
