Rooms very very average and hopelessly overpriced. The staff will hound you aggressively to book boat trips with them (we did, the boatman never turned up) and onward travel. Half the place is being gutted which doesn't help. Breakfast is a joke - don't bother. However great balcony view of the Burning Ghats (people watching at dusk is great) and close to the absolutely awesome Blue Lassi.

Suddenly, the teen lost this fierce face and became all friendly, and polite. This caught me off guard and the immediate realisation that it was ...
... sleeping, if they're lucky enough to get to sleep!
David decided to sleep with his pack (and the passports inside it) under his head which probably accounts for why he didn't get much sleep! I slept with my pack shoved up against the wall under my bunk and my handbag (including my wallet etc) hooked over my neck under the blanket, and my scarf wrapped around the pillow and over my face! I managed to get more sleep than David, despite one man opposite snoring all ...
