Mandatory New Years Eve dinner
Posted Jan 9, 2014 on Hotels
When I booked 2 double rooms over the New Year weekend I was told that New Year eve dinner was mandatory. My printed receipt showed extra $70 per room for Dec 31. Imagine my outrage when I registered at the hotel on Dec 26, the manager was told to collect Rs 14,000 in cash (because the credit card machine was broken) for the mandatory dinner. Not only did I pay more for the room Rs 1300 per day as compared to the current going rate Rs 8000 per day, but they were also trying to soak me and family for extra Rs 14,000 for the dinner. They were not able to answer why that extra $70 /day was charged, specially since all hotels in the area had uniform high rate for that particular peak season. I refused to pay and happy not to attend the dinner party which had noisy music, was very lame and had forced gaiety. Definitely I would not not recommend this hotel, rooms are pretty dingy and over all quality worse than the worst motel in US.
