The room was excellent, with a small kitchette and 2 TVs. This is the most comfortable stay I had in India. The Staff are wonderful and service is excellent too.

Now we must choose which quota we will reserve from a list of seven...Ian is eligible to choose from three: general quota, tourist quota or emergency quota (called Taktal and at supplementary cost).
