The hotel is situated right on the banks of the lake with beautiful views from the cottages on the lakeside. The rooms are small but clean. There was no hot water to shower in the morning and the staff often turn off the power to the AC to save electricity. The hotel staff are rude and hung up on our...

Location of hotel is excellent but service is moderate. Hot water availability is there. Choose this hotel if you are looking for budget hotel. This is the only budget hotel available with great location.

I did the booking thru email with them. After reaching there seeing their tariff only came to know they charged me very high, which was not all worth for that place. I felt cheated by them. I advice to go in-direct and book.

You can sit outside the cottages for hours comfortably 3. Very nice staff.. Mostly run by ladies 4. Very near to the boat jetty for a ride in the lake Cons:...
