This is not a Resort as the title Carries. This is just a budget hotel. Weather at 12 degree Centigrade they do not provide hot water ( limited for 3 hrs/ day at am & pm). Nothing much to do at this place. Food is Tamil nadu style and is just ok. No value for money. Stay closer to lake...

The place was good and the rooms were clean. The house keeping staffs are very courteous and lobby managers are good. Food is ok and priority will be given to the guest who come in groups. Recommend to confirm the food orders with the bearers whenever you place the order and they will not listen properly.
