This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Good location to all the places. Breakfast was abit boring. Not much selection, even it is a 4 star hotel (may just 2 star, I guess). Overall the room is alright, good for 2 people.
The hotel is offering day tours. Please make sure you get the final quote in BLACK & WHITE. I booked the day tours through the hotel. Upon arrival, i inquired abt the payment and they did not tell me anything on extras. Only on the 3rd day, I was informed to pay an additional 15% as VAT (value added tax)!! I checked everywhere in our previous correspondence (emails), nothing mentioned abt the 15% VAT. I checked the day tour schedule which placed on the hotel notice board and there was nothing abt the 15% VAT. I am not sure how could the hotel asked for that 15% where it was not mentioned anywhere at all? Just a piece of advice.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Clean. Rooms and toilets OK. Friendly staff. Breakfast spread is good with egg as only non-veg option. Not a car friendly surround i.e narrow lanes crowded with cars. Full day trips by Nakhal was expensive but are good value for money. Cheaper than private taxis.
