2/10 Poor

Room description is not what you get (Misleading)
I think there is a kind of scam going on - real (1) to (5) below - this is based on my experience. (1) The description and photos are not the room that is given to you. When you say it to the receptionist, they argue and blame it on the platform (HOTELS.COM), However, I think cannot be blamed (based on my experience in several countries); (2) The receptionist will call the hotel manager to show that they are trying to help the customer, but it is a charade. The manager will say, you can let the customer go by entering "no show". Obviously, this means you will lose some money as they flag you as "no show" - your card details are already with (this is the reason that I stayed in the hotel, rather than walkout); (3) After manager disconnects, an additional choice is offered - pay 35-40% for the room you thought you booked (i.e., same description and the one you see in the photo). It appears that Lindsay has one Junior Suite (INR5,500+ GST). With that room rate, you could get a better room at a different hotel. A hotel that is is clean and not dated (with Lindsay, the theme of the hotel is nostalgia, but one may have both nostalgia and the clean rooms and facilities). (4) I understood this to be a scam, since the receptionist asked me to check the room "repeatedly" before paying, First I thought he was being polite, but then it occurred to me that this is happening regularly (i.e., misleading customers) and they anyway know at that point guest cannot leave

2/10 Poor should not represent such worst hotel
The room was booked for 2 adults and paid accordingly, where my friend was local citizen who was supposed to stay with me. But they didn’t allow my friend to stay with me. So, I’ve checked out at midnight at booked another hotel through It was a waste of money for me. should investigate this issue and should not harass any guest in future. We are paying for comfort, not to waste our money.

6/10 Good

Standards are Slipping
1st stayed here in 2016 and as I liked it then, I would stay here again in 2018. What a regret. No smiles, no nice customer service and I even had the restaurant manager yell at me. Lobby staff dont know whats going on. The hotel is getting old and tired and could so with a face lift. Bed was as hard as nails. Glad I was only there for 1 night.
