The hotel itself is stunning and in a great location. Rooms very large and beautiful as well as lovely bathrooms. The swimming pool is fantastic. What lets this hotel down is the reception staff who don't seem that eager to help, often giving short one word answers and often picking up their phones mid conversation. The other main disappointment was the price of everything in the hotel. The food isn't great and the first evening we ate at their buffet. There is no prices for anything but we had one beer each and the price was over £50 which is a lot for what it was. The beers here are the most expensive you will find in India at 550 rupees. During our holiday we stayed in some top class hotels including the taj palace in Mumbai and this was more expensive than there! The second night we even went to the Oberoi down the road for dinner which was also cheaper and much tastier! When we asked for a taxi to the train station the front desk quoted a ridiculous price which we refused, went to the street and paid a quarter of what was asked by the hotel.
