Can do better
The hotel is generally good only that they need to improve on being thorough with their cleaning, and service at the restaurant. Seats in the room had this strong dusty smell which was quite uncomfortable considering both my kids are asmatic. The hotel too need to focus on maintenance, i.e sockets, bathroom area. Restaurant is a big disappointment, Ordered for food and the first time the chips masala came full of lemon and was unbeatable. Second time ordered for fish fillet and stir fried chicken, the fish came in raw had to return it back, chicken was full of tumeric and uneatable too. The waitress serving us offered to call the chef for for us to explain our dissatisfaction and he declined coming up to talk to us.... and to make it worse we were charged for both meals. The hotel should seriously pay attention to their kitchen section.
