This charming and attractively decorated guest house provides a pleasant retreat from city life. We enjoyed sipping our drinks by the pool while happily anticipating lunch on the patio. Unfortunately, the kitchen just isn’t up to par. Lunch was both expensive and of only average quality (a mix of western and Indian options). It is served buffet-style and the kitchen ran out of many of the dishes before all the guests had all had enough of each. Given that reservations are required, it couldn’t be that they didn’t have a correct headcount. We were quite disappointed given the reviews. Perhaps we just hit an off day? And while the English host was very charming, the same could not be said of the senior staff person who was mixing the drinks: She insisted on taking away the water glass of one of our party and rudely instructed him on which glass to use for drinking water - a bit more instruction to her would be in order on the spirit of hospitality rather than the letter of etiquette.
