We selected the "palace turned hotel" for its swimming pool and collection of old furniture. The swimming pool was empty "maintenance" came the explanation and the furniture was certainly old - see pictures - they speak louder than words. The fire hose was cracked & had holes in it and the electrics were hanging out of the wall in our room. As I sat down in disappointment on the bed I nearly broke my coccyx it was so hard. The bathroom looked uninviting too. The pond/fountain was also drained and the downstairs toilets smelled like Indian railway tracks - sorry if you've not visited India - the smell is indescribable. The duvet cover was stained and when I asked to make a local call on the phone I was refused (so much for STD). Despite having paid for 2 rooms for 2 nights we left. The porters were helpful in taking our luggage to the car. The management said nothing. Use our experience to save yourself the money and book somewhere else.
