The hotel has been refurbished recently and the rooms are good. The staff was very courteous. The hotel is well located and 7-8 mins walk from the mall road. The breakfast was good. Overall a good experience.

We (Me, wife and kid) visited the hotel during Christmas holidays. Except the charges of room(quite high), hotel staff is very cooperative, Food quality is average. The hotel is very close to Mall road and we can have a small walk to reach mall road.
