Historic feel of the place has some remnants of charm... Rest of the premises are more common. Food tends to be too rich... but you can enjoy big swimming pool to cool down. City around is very noisy.

Our guide diverted us to The Bangala for a memorable lunch which we much appreciated. It is a really charming small hotel, set in lovely gardens and with a beautiful swimming pool. We were sorry not to be spending the night! Highly recommended.

Indian citizens are not that welcomed. They don't serve walk in customers. The price is ₹ 1,000 for one.
