Staff extremely hospitable and courteous. Complimentary morning breakfast was pleasing. WiFi was choppy and not reliable. Out of 12 day stay, internet was out for a full day, and quite disappointing and inconvenient.

The front lobby ambience was good. Other than that things are out dated and not as per the standards of a 4 star hotel. Restaurant facilities need to enhanced further. Room ambience is quite old fashioned and needs a ton of improvement. Mosquitoes issue in rooms.

Stay was excellent. Staff are very well trained and professional. Food was scrumptious at the restaurant. Breakfast was good and the rooms are huge. It is a heritage hotel but worth the stay. Will recommend to others.
