The room,the hospitality from the next door hospitality college,the layout as well as the food was all great. spa is added bonus and the visit to Ellora Caves is a life time experience and if you can include Ajanta Caves that is great experience that trasports you back to 2000 years.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property is compact, well maintained and pretty. Many young, enthusiastic staff members create a very positive vibe. The room was well lit and spacious. The balcony with a swing added to the charm. Everything worked. Lots of green spaces and birds. The gym and swimming pool are small, but were adequate for us....

A bit pricey in all aspects of extras not included in the booking such as lunch and dinner, so you could wander out of the hotel to the manic streets to try other food, but...
