I understand that the hotel is set for renovation and later one should experience if the present shortcomings are fixed. Our stay was comfortable (moneys worth) due to cleanliness and helpful staff. In the last room (106-our 1st stay)of the annex block, the roof of the room also serves as floor of the upper room is disturbing from foot falls above. Due to non availability of credit card payment method, I had to pay cash by withdrawing from ATM at the last minute which could have been avoided. But, I got great help from staff to go to ATM to withdraw. Before, check-in, the hotel kept sending SMS that I need to confirm my arrival without which the booking will be cancelled. This SMS comes even after my oral/telephonic confirmation. I was told that SMS is machine generated and staff could not help. But, it is a nuisance and puts guests in jittery if someone ignores such SMS after getting booking confirmed.
Pros: Location, ambiance and staff
Cons: Food and intercom attendance (reception)
