“Value for money.. Food and service not great”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the fern on a business trip to Ahmedabad
Decent value for money - you can negotiate very good rates if you're giving then room nights. New hotel so the rooms are fabulous very clean n comfortable
Located on the sola highway not really the best If u want to be in the city centre but then it's not far away either

Food is a big minus - breakfast s very limited spread and teh same thing pretty much everyday. Food isn't great at all. Service at the restaurant also is wanting n and can definitely be better - new hotel feels like they are learning

Overall I would say good value for money if you get the rate right

I was staying over in Ahmedabad for just one night, on the way to Jaipur. I was able to get a room at the Fern for a very good last-minute price, so I decided to stay there.

The room was excellent, with clean, crisp white linen, a modern bathroom, table + chair to work. The food is fantastic and service is very good. Though the hotel is close to a busy road, the soundproofing is very good, so you do not hear anything in the room.

I'd recommend this hotel no problem.

We did a conference in Feb 2013. The place was booked at least 3 months in advance. We did make it clear that we will need the banquet till about 7.00 pm since we had long agenda for the day.

The day went well. Room was ready in the morning. Service for tea/ coffee/ snacks was excellent. They asked us to join us in the Restaurant for buffet lunch instead of serving us separately. The services in restaurant was extremely poor. They seemed to be short of staff. One guest had a particular requirement for Food. They could not manage it time.

At the end of the day the staff started hurrying us up at 6.30 pm to vacate the room stating that at 7.00 pm they needed it for another function. Our team's argument that our booking is till 7.00 pm went in vain.

I frequently visit the dinner buffet for meetings and personal occasions and I have never been dissatisfied as they always make you feel special with exceptional service and also offer great food and options. Specially visit when they have special food festivals going on. Cheers.

Very Decent,Calm and Nice place to spend time with your loved ones.Liked the Iphone dock for charging my mobile.The Hotel is in par with all the other luxury hotels in India,however there scope of improvement when compared to International standards.
Just one advice would be to increase the size of the table for in room dining service or serve the food using table top food trolleys.

We stayed here for six days, during our visit to Ahemdabad. The hotel, and its wonderful, warm, friendly, and professional staff exceeded all of our expectations. The food was beautifully prepared, with a huge range of varieties, and our room was spacious, and very clean. Housekeeping, Front Desk, Restaurant, Travel Desk, and all other members made our stay both a memorable and enjoyable one! Thank you to the entire Team! We miss the cookie jar, in the room, with freshly baked cookies, every day!

I came here with a group after staying in dormitories, so needless to say we were all overjoyed to stay in a more luxurious place. The hotel has a new feel about it, from the lobby to the rooms. It was my first time in an eco-hotel, and it was a very pleasant experience. The spacious rainshower was a big perk! The bed was extremely comfortable and put me right to sleep every night.

The breakfast was very good, with a huge variety of western and Indian dishes. Dinner was pretty good too. The staff was quite helpful as well.

The only downsides are the location (far from the center and not really in walking distance to anything) and the extra internet charge, although that is standard for most hotels abroad. Also they plan to build a spa in the future, it would have been a perfect addition.

In any case, I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Ahmedebad.
