“Disappointed! What an awful experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Receptoon area was nice so I thought that our room will be nice too, but after seeing the room its so upsetting..The sink drains very slow, on and off lights. When I ordered for ice the staff said they dont have which is unbelievable. We're pretty tired and couldn't go out to find a restaurant so we decided to eat in the hotel and guess what ?when we ask the bill its written manually in a paper..Our bill is 1100 amd tax is 200 rupees!!I thought they might have their own tax percentage!! The internet is not free and too slow and didnt work most of the time and is not worth it to pay but I still pay. When we checked out there are 2 staff assisting us to carry our luggage but as soon us we gave the tip they are all gone and we ourselves carry our luggage from the reception to our car. I dnt recommend this hotel to anyone.

Ambiance of the hotel ,
is filled with a beautiful fragrance,
All the perfumes of the flowers,
Combined for the heavenly senses,
Lighting in the hotels is firelight that gleams.

Mouth watering food delicious lovely dishes,
Delightful customer service every inch of the hotel is just wow,
Highly impressed with the hotel and staff.

Hotel Utkarsh Vilas.. never heard about it before .. but after experiencing it felt great ..! clean lobby, clean and spacious rooms, cooperative staff and a hard working owner .. visit to the hotel was mind satisfying, after a long way journey .. and as we entered the hotel we were surprised by the warm welcome .. welcome drinks, flowers and the best was the owner herself honoured us ..then moving on to the rooms .. the hotel was decorated with flowers all over ..the fragrance was just awesome.. going into the rooms, they were neat & tidy, spacious and up to the mark ..!
