Pleasant accommodations

Negative Reviews

Issues with bathrooms

Issues are raised by guests regarding the en-suite bathrooms. They complain that the hotel’s geyser facilities are not working at all times. Furthermore, they have limited access to hot water early in the morning and late in the evening. Additionally, bathroom amenities such as dental kits and shampoos are not provided.

Restricted restaurant menu

The food choices in the hotel restaurant are limited to vegetarian meals. Guests who are fond of eating meat may not find this hotel ideal for their stay. Moreover, the food options for lunch and dinner sometimes don't meet their expectations in terms of quality and taste.

Poor customer service

Reviewers are not pleased with the staff members’ performance. They are slow and inefficient in rendering service. To their dismay, customers have to follow up on their requests a number of times before being attended to. Overall, staff members are reportedly not attentive enough towards their customers.
