Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.

... And then man butt. Nearly two hours later and six hours after we set out we slowly squeezed the three feet to the bus entrance and walked towards out guest-house just as the sun had set. It was a little creepy as the trees lining the walk were crowded by crows. An omen? No.
While we were searching for our guest-house we came across another tourist with all his gear staring bewildered at the same clothing stall our GPS insisted was a hostel. ...
... managing two cocktails and beers before the deadline, refusing a third beer which is offered right on the bell. We decided the snacks were enough to keep us going for the evening meal, having actually splashed out on a purchased meal on the plane.
Murray watches some pretty ordinary Indian CNN, and flakes out early (by local time, but not necessarily other time, as we’ve had another time change). Dianne out of it by 10PM.
... personal tour guide, giving me the low-down on Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha, and many other Hindu gods (there are thousands of them, after all).
Bollywood movie - Race 2: Pure entertainment. Granted it was in Hindi and I couldn’t understand a word, but sometimes talking is overrated. The uber dramatic dancing and singing were what I came for. And we did get the gist of the story since my friend Ajit (Indian American) was able to translate the movie for us. ...
... inside a computer whilst someone was playing one of those crazy racing games. As we neared Colombo the traffic built and our driver became even more erratic. In addition, he suddenly started to make little detours from the main road, which meant weaving speedily around very narrow lanes and bumping over pretty sizeable sleeping policemen. The last half an hour was spent with Elaine and I clinging on for dear life and wondering whether these little deviations were all ...
... visas. All we had on us was a letter of acceptance for a visa on arrival which raised a couple of eyebrows but was accepted eventually. We also passed easily through immigration and security. The security consisted of more rubber stamping than checking and the only thing that got taken off Owen was his lighter. Mine was in my bag so was let through, as were all the liquids that were in there!
After a slight change to the departure gate we board the plane to Singapore - Goodbye India!
