We arrived at around 6.30pm, after an hour and a half taxi ride from the airport, quite bizarrely the taxi driver showed us to our room and we were left with no keys!! Eventually the lady owner came to give us the keys and tell us a few house rules!! We can only describe this place as bizarre, the rules of the house were very strange at best and our room was very overpriced at 1000 rupees per night, it's a pity she hadn't explained some rules to her staff, who left all the room keys lying around in the common area during the day!! Our shower pressure was almost non-existant, she put this down to an excess of RUST (we fixed this by removing the shower head and cleaning it with a needle!) , and she had an excuse for absolutely everything we queried! Far better rooms are available at the place next door for half the price!). We certainly would not stay here again.
