We had to early check in as there was a wedding. Many areas were restricted. Going forward hotel management should have informed.

The service was terrible, and the food was stale. We were watching the World Cup soccer finals, which went into penalty shootouts and would have ended in 5 more minutes, but they turned off the only TV we could watch the match on because it was their time to shut down. This is the World Cup finals; I think they could accommodate 5 more minutes. Also, there was a lot of drama when we requested an additional hour for checkout.

The experience was really good. The food and service is good. Rooms and view is great. However, the hotel must allow alacarte ordering for dinner in the cafe ir restaurant. Alacarte is only possible from room which is not good at all.

Great location in terms of view. Stunning view of a waterfall and cliff from the hotel. Although the hotel is almost next to busy expressway, there was very little or no disturbance in the room. The breakfast spread, although not so vast, was not too bad. The food here is terribly expensive for the quality. We ordered veg biryani costs Rs 500 per plate (plus taxes). I think a roadside biryani would be way too better than this. Other day ordered a Paneer dish and Daal with two portions of Tandoori roti. Costed Rs 2000 and again the quality too mediocre. Roti of the size of big poori. All in all, good stay but disappointing food. If you don't ask, they don't clean the room but this could be due to covid restrictions.
