Cover the Face
This hotel is broken down in several ways. Since it is an old British-era building bult in 1857, all floors are wooden. Not only do all the floors creak, so do the doors, cabinets, etc. You can hear creaking noises from other rooms as well, making it very annoying. The staff at the F&B outlets forgot how to smile or never learnt. Menu at Dinner buffet is almost 80% same as the breakfast buffet. They have done away with their infused cocktails which they used to be once famous for. The only positive is that it is the only hotel actually on the beach.

A great hotel and everyone out to please
It is a great heritage hotel. A luxurious breakfast but the substance between the news wing check in and the old wing stay is quite a bit
