Negative Reviews

Deteriorating, expensive breakfast

Breakfast quality at the lodge was deteriorating from its own set high standards. The food served was not tasty, stale at times and lacked variety. Moreover, it was very expensive.

Small rooms as well as bathrooms

Rooms in the lodge were small and crammed up. There was hardly any space to move around. Guests said that it was inconvenient to stay up in the room for a long time as it got a little suffocating later. Even the bathrooms were extremely small and had worn out fixtures.

Overpriced and limited parking

Some guests said that the lodge was highly overpriced and was not worth the money spent. Even the parking space was too small and it was difficult to park bigger vehicles.
