The hotel is just about average. They do not change the sheets and towels. We asked them to change the sheets and they cleaned the room and put on the same sheets after just dusting them off.
They food in the restaurant isn't up to the mark but then you don't really have much choice because port blair doesn't have that many restaurants and after travelling the whole day you're too tired to go out. Tried ordering three types of chicken - Ginger Chicken, Chilly chicken and Schezuan Chicken..all of them were the same except for the fact that the ginger chicken had ginger on top of it and chilly chicken had a few capsicums on top of it. Nothing is really available. The only thing worth ordering is the Fresh Lime Soda but they're gonna take around 30 mins for that so be prepared.
They'll advise to order a few items which are almost ready( pretty much the same everyday) and discourage you to order others but in the end they end up taking more than hour for the items which were supposed to be ready. The service is not good at all. They make you wait too much.
The rooms were road facing and no windows at all which makes the room too stuffy. Never ever go for the buffet. The food is always cold .
The washrooms were just okay. There is no proper drainage and the faucets are faulty. Water gets collected in the washroom. You'll have to ask them again and again for towels and even they're not gonna change your towels.
Do NOT go for the tour package. They overcharge and cheat you.
Our holiday would have been awesome had the hotel not been so disappointing.
