One among the oldest hotel in Shimoga

Posted 21 Dec, 2015

Wow! It is yet again an antique piece. One among the oldest hotel of Shimoga. Wonderful one to stay. The very good part of the hotel is food. Plenty of varieties, especially fishes. You will get fresh fish dishes there. If your a non-vegetarian you must taste fish dishes.
