A very clean hotel with helpful staff”

The hotel is located near to French town and is at a walkable distance from everything. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The staff take our feedback seriously and act on it. Though the pricing maybe little higher considering the limited complimentary breakfast but the stay was very pleasant. Would recommend for family and business stay

Prime location with least facilities”

We spent around 6k/per night. No car parking, we had to park our car on the main road. Breakfast was a disaster, as they only provide Idly, Dosa, Poori, Some sour fruits (pineapple and watermelon), Bread and Omelette. The bathroom had no curtain / door, the water spills out near the washbasin after you shower. The size of the rooms are small compared to the money spent.

It's new and the rooms and toilets are clean. It's good but not excellent. However there is no cupboard in the room, breakfast services very poor and the location even though in mission Street, it's scary to come along late night.

It is located in heritage town and walkable distance to white town and beach. Staffs were so polite and cleared all our queries with a smile.
