No delay in check-in and check-out


The appearance of the hotel is okay both from inside as well as outside. It was in the city. There was no difficulty in finding the hotel. Interior and exterior decor of the hotel was fine. The rooms were non AC and geyser was there in the room. The food we had from outside. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. There was no activity. The suggestion is that the reception, food and infrastructure to be improved. It was okay considering the value for money. It can be recommended to others .

Great - if you are interested in wildlife, nature, trekking and that heavenly peace and quiet !! On the other hand, if you are looking for all the comforts and luxuries of a resort, this is not for you.There is no electricity, no running water and no telephones or TVs/Music Systems, except what the host, George plays on his harmonica ! The menu is simple but fresh, traditionally cooked and absolutely delicious !!
