We hosted there Town Hall meeting early of this year.
Good place for buffet over business talks.
The taste of the food and quality need to improve
We felt more noise there on TV.it will be good if they maintain with more kind of amenities.
Need to be more clean what we expect.

To start with pros
You enter and see a not huge but decent sized high roof, well lit lobby.
One thing that I liked the most was the aroma on the floors and rooms. It was pleasing. They use a good freshner, I assume (should have asked the name).
Bed comfortable, Bath clean.
Buffet breakfast was good obliviously south Indian food was the pick of the spread.
Checkin check out was fast and smooth.
I prefer a bath tub and shaving mirror, was happy to see both.

Cons
Furniture is old, polish/paint peeling off and screams for a change. Rooms are not well lit.
I asked for a hand towel from house keeping, strangely guy came back with a full size bath towel stating hand towels were not available. And I want asking for an extra one, there wasn't any hand towel in the room.
Restaurant service was poor, they insisted on me having buffet for dinner. I declined and ordered for a starter and main course which was accepted with restraints. After ten minutes I was requested to change as stater was not possible for them which was ordered from menu. I changed it to a soup. Food was not upto the mark.
Lifts are toooo slow.

On my business tour it is always an awesome stay. Fine foods & pretty good hospitality. The rooms & amenities are excellent. Would like to suggest to the corporate friends & the family relatives. Only AC machine service in the room to be improved.

Stayed at this hotel on 2nd and 3rd of this month. AC was not working properly,had to change the room at 1030 hrs in the night. Buffet breakfast service is not at all good. Only good thing is food taste and options available. Sambar is really tasty. If improved on service it is good option.

We a family of 3 stayed in July 2017 for 4 days and it was a very pleasant stay. The courteous staff and service is a plus. The restaurant was serving amazing food for a very cheap price.
Thanks,
