“The fern review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

Stayed in The fern for 5 days on a business trip. Hotel's staff is courteous and helpful. Food is excellent. Its a new property thus not much rush. Interiors are very well decorated. Excellent taste. Highly recommended for a stay. (This is a genuine review and not a paid one :-).

Room Tip: All rooms are well insulated from the high way noise

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

So ended up at the fern this last weekend, in town for work as usual. The first impression was of a decent hotel nothing too amiss. Nice moderate sized rooms with open views of the city and a train track (which can be amusing for the first few train-spottings).

A nice overhead shower (no bathtub) a comfortable bathroom, Flat screen TV (with only 50 channels mostly Gujrati and Ten sports the only sports channel) and an Ipod dock. Ipod dock turned out to be the most handy of it all and was used amply especially since the tv didnt have much.

all in all a comfortable room. So where lies the problem ?

1. The food is pretty below average. i ordered breakfast/lunch and dinner but all of them equally failed to live upto expectations. the hotel doesn't carry any local gujrati food either much to my surprise and the menu was pretty much a generic one made up of regular fare that you could get at any decent joint.

Avoid eating here, as the food is simply not worth it. If you are someone who travels a lot and knows his/her food you;d do best to dine out. The only exception to the bad food was the chicken Tikka which was a very pleasent surprise. It was absolutely dilicious.

2. The service of the staff leaves a lot to be desired. they are courteous and polite but on more than one occassion calls to reception/room service went unanswered. and on more than one occassion they 'forgot' a part of the room service order. eg. i had ordered 4-5 indian dishes along with rice, salad, roti's and dessert. and i ended up getting only 3 of them.

by that time i was too tired to order for them again.

3. The reception also took forever to send up the luggage. i had quite a few bags and expected them to ferry em up to my room but ihad to call reception 3 times to remind them to send up the bags. Not done. Pretty bad if you asked me.

In the end, this is a good hotel if ur stay is short and more business like. Nothing great or 5 star about this place. The Room was pretty much the only good thing about this place.

This is a newly developed hotel in Ahmedabad near the Gujarat High Court, Science City etc. on S.G.Haghway.It is far away from the airport and Railway station.(More than 20 kms).
Quality of food is excellent. Rooms are also well furnished.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the S.G.Highways are very good.

A complete delight and truly a memorable experience, they opened a couple of months back. The food at their in house dinning was lavish, with great cuisines, fresh fruits, juices. The rooms are too good, modern interiors with all the amenities excellent staff. Room services are highly satisfactory. Icing on the cake is the view that each of the room offers. The room gives a view off a flyover, residential area, and vast expanse of open land. You can just sit and gaze at the sun-rise and sun-set right from your room sitting in your nice cushiony chair. Never felt like leaving. Would stay here whenever next I am visiting Ahmedabad.

Since they have recently opened they do not have a gym or recreation centre, adding these would just make the stay at the hotel a complete luxury stay at a very competitive price. I personally liked the concept of glass walls partitioning the washroom and the bedroom (washroom has this glass partition with shades giving the bedroom and the washroom a feel of two separate units, if you pull up the shades the room suddenly starts looking bigger and one complete unit).

Would highly recommend this for family and business stay

Room Tip: Can ask the reservation staff to give a room at higher floors as they have better view.
