First impressions are strong at the orchid metropole Mysore in an attractive lobby and layout, but as always in hotels, the devil is in the details and it just doesn't hit the right notes. After changing rooms, having been given twin single beds, the resulting double was pleasant enough, but not exactly inspiring. The problem came with the service - or rather lack of it. The bar was unattended in the evening, there was a 15 mins wait for a bellboy before I had to go to reception to remind them and a 35 minute wait for cheese on toast. No welcome or seating and surly service over a most uninviting breakfast buffet ensured the initial good impressions went as cold as the burnt coffee.
