6/10 Good

Great location. Hotel is in the front of the beach and easy access to Sri Aurobindo ashram. Staff are really good and as soon as you request for something and it gets done. Welcoming guests was good. Room was not so great although they say hotel maintains heritage but hotel room requiring updating. Room facing street food at the back is quite noisy and smelly and can't keep windows open. We had few other issues for e.g. there was no locker in the room, balcony was broken and unsafe. Next day they changed our room facing sea and it was much better but because there was parade going on hence seaside view was not possible. Breakfast options were quite good. Hotel is quite pricy

4/10 Fair

The food here was excellent. And although the staff was kind and friendly, the majority of them did not speak english which created miscommunication and slow service. I think the staff needs more support from upper management. The staff we greatly appreciated are Asing (restaurant), Kalai (Laundry/room), Asis (Email correspondence), and Praneetha (spa). We were on the second floor room 22 and 23. Both rooms had mold and we also found cockroaches in our bathrooms at night. Our mattress in room 22 was also terrible. Big disappointment.

Not worth
This was one of my worst experiences that I’ve had. For a hotel that was priced higher than everything else and on the beach I expected more quality. First, the buffet breakfast had cockroaches walking around in the food
