Located few kms from the city , this hotel offers a serene stay .The rooms have all the necessary amenities but the only negative point being that the rooms have only one charging point which can be bothersome of you are travelling with a group. Don't miss to jog up towards the bear shola falls.

This is a nice hotel with a very well responsive and courteous staff. Some of the room fittings and furnishings are very old and broken at places.
