Well I say it's a good hotel because of the perfect location on the edge of this huge lake. You may see elephants, couple of peakocks by the window of your room which something you don't find in every hotel room. Night time view was fantastic.
The room was small with a low roof but it was very very cosy. But the mini bar was useless with only a couple of soda bottles. Plz at least keep some snack packs which will be useful. Bathroom was good n clean. And I must say about the toiletries. I just loved the aroma of the soap. I wished if there were shampoo, conditioner n shower gel too.
Staff is ok. They r welcoming n helpful. Generally the hotel was cleann n well maintained. Access to ruins is easy.
