Nice hotel with decent facilities. Rooms are decently clean and equally spacious. The bathrooms are well maintained too. The only problem is the quality of the bed. They are so hard that, we had our aches paining after first day sleep.

1 night stay , but service and cleanliness at its best . Location is also good with free parking and free wi-fi service. You have to ask for wi-fi password if u require. Rooms are bigger and with a view of the road.

The food quality is fine, though we only had breakfast in the hotel. The rooms are average though the bathrooms could have been better in terms of cleanliness. Overall... More

During my recent visit to Katra we had a room in this hotel also. outside appearance is very good but the rooms were pathetic. It has SBI bank and ATMs at the ground floor also. I will not recommend this at all.
