I have stayed at many hotels but such housekeeping is rare. Lakshmi at JA was so professional and cooperative. My Room stays clean and tidy like my home. Great work Lakshami. Every thing matters but cleanliness is most important in hospitality business.

Nothing less than absolutely fantastic! It's the staff that make it so, they're so welcoming, so friendly, so courteous and so ready to help in whatever way they can. The hotel is always spotlessly clean and such a lovely place to stay.........I should know, I've stayed there four times now! My only frustration as a wheelchair dependent disabled person, and this probably has nothing to do with the hotel?, but the terrain outside of the hotel is of a brick type without a smooth path alongside, this makes travelling by wheelchair extremely uncomfortable and potentially very damaging to a wheelchair. It would be so much appreciated if the addition of a smooth wheelchair path to the infrastructure around the hotel was created. Finally, a big shout-out to Vickram who made our stay so pleasurable.
