Default re: A thread on Accommodation & Rates

This needs a special mention on this forum.In my hotel stays around the country for the last 10years,this is the 1st incident that I have come across where a hotel has actually refunded the entire money spent in the hotel as a goodwill gesture.

A brief background:We stayed at Keys,Whitefield during our recent drive from Thrissur to Hyd.As luck would have it,there were a lot of goofups resulting in the hotel aircon not working in the room we were checked into,and service also was iffy.I pointed this out promptly using the hotel feedback mechanism and via a review on Tripadvisor.

I was promptly contacted by the Chief Operating Officer himself of the Berggruen Hotels which operates the Keys brand and was assured corrective action and he was regretful of the incidents.What came as a pleasant and welcome surprise though was the prompt arrival of a cheque today morning refunding the entire 2night hotel stay amount.I think finally the Indian hotel scenario is changing for the good and the better.

What was impressive is that there is acceptance on the hotel side that things can go wrong-nobody can prevent that,but what is more than appreciative is the immediate initiation of corrective procedures by the hotel management

Impressed with Keys management.if this is the way they go,I am sure they would go places.

This is indeed a very good sign Ranjit,Kudos to the management of Keys for being apologetic and for the nice gesture.

I have not come across something like this in my last 16 years of extensive travel across India.

Waseem.

Hotel Vasanth Mahal, Mangalore, opp city center mall.Decent rooms with good service, but please book the rooms which are not facing the road if you need sound sleep.

Jog Falls:Hotel Mayura, Gerusoppa (Run by KSTDC).
Book the new block called sharavati which is equivalent of a 2 star property.
The restaurant here sucks big time, you may have to travel to sagar (35kms) for a decent meal.

Waseem.

Question Budget accomodation in Chidambaram & Pondy

Hi all, could you kindly guide me to some nice budget hotels in Chidambaram and Pondy? I would be travelling with my parents, sister and BIL.

In Chidambaram, preferably close to the temple (I guess the town itself is quite small)
In Pondy, not too far away from the town.

Budget - Budget 1 - 1.5k each, for 2 rooms. Or 2.5k for a room that can accommodate 5 people.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi all, I need recommendation on accomodation in or around Dive Agar (similar distance from Pune) for a couple of days in November.

Must haves:
- Cleanliness (bare minimum clean beds & toilet, no dilapidated stuff)
- Safety (family friendly, not overrrun by drunkards)
- Proximity to beach preferred

Other amenities such as own property with kid friendly facilities would be welcome.
Any pointers?

Bandipur Tiger Reserve Forest Guest houses can be booked online at http://bandipurtigerreserve.in/ .. And it is dirt cheap compared with the private options and can be the best located one..

You may like to consider following thread. It was an extremely clean home stay with strict veg food and no drinking / smoking / loud music allowed.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...rivardhan.html (Weekend Trip : Pune - Diveagar - Srivardhan)

Beach is about 10-15 mins walk. The wadi (garden) in the backyard is good, but there are no other kid playing facilities. You can find the photos of the surrounding in above t'logue.

Any suggestions on a good hotel for 3 nights stay at Chamarajnagar town? with good parking facility? Nijaguna Residency which is highly recommended is slightly above budget for the people who would be going there. Thanks in advance
