Gowri Residence needs to decide if it is a relaxing guesthouse, meat-market, or restaurant. The rooms are good value, spacious and everything works.
Clutter and daily grime go for the most part unattended. The reason for this is simple; 'the Boys' are too busy cracking onto female guests. 'The Boys' can barely remember a simple request so singular is their focus on backpacker trim; I waited 20 mins for a cup of tea. Late at night, the syrupy serenading by The Cassanovas peaks with unsolicited crooning for the unsuspecting lassies not sure if they should watch the rest of the show or get some rest in anticipation of tomorrow's itinerary.
Seriously, the Gowri management needs some women working there, if only to reduce the oppressive sleaze-factor. The place would also be more impressive if the restaurant was cleaned during service (and replace the cigarette-charred tablecloths, please) and kept neat. And the floors of the rooms need to be mopped DAILY. Whoever chose terracotta tiles; sorry, but they are muck-magnets.
Oh, and the turkey tom should be left to roam! (But get him a hen so he doesn't hassle the guests like his humanoid tom-brethren!)
