8/10 Very good

Good staff and service; Nice breakfast In bathroom, dry area becomes wet owing to inefficient partitioning; insufficient mats

4/10 Fair

The front lobby ambience was good. Other than that things are out dated and not as per the standards of a 4 star hotel. Restaurant facilities need to enhanced further. Room ambience is quite old fashioned and needs a ton of improvement. Mosquitoes issue in rooms.
