    Location and nice garden in front !!!

    I can simply said: You will not get what you see and what you paid for !!! The room is not what you see on the Booked.net. Old rooms, not clean and the service is very bad. The staff is not helpful at all. I have a bad experience at the hotel starting from the check in which take too long, then to the extra bed which I request which take more than 4 hours to get after 3 calls to reception and then the duty manager at the end. Finally, the room was not what I book and see at Booked.net and when I request for a change I got a Reply “ go and complain to Booked.net by the Hotel Front office Supervisor (Vinoth). What I like it more that the rooms was with no refrigerators and when I ask they said you have to request it … >>>Please consider this as an official complain from my side..

    Nothing , bad hotel

    This is my comments regarding Grand Hotel: Once I arrived from travel, they delayed me for two hours since they did not have rooms as per my requirements booking through e-booking site and they gave me rooms as per the available not my request ( they are looking for money, customer last). Even I did not found my name at the customers while I reserved rooms since one month ago. No internet at rooms and no refrigerator. Old tv and they do not have any Arabic Chanel while most of their customers Arabs!!!!!!!! If request anything first pay, they are not trust customers !!!!!, Finally, it is bad hotel from my opinion.

    Location and nice landscaping.

    Only one elevator available, so we have to walk long way to reach the rooms.

    A good hotel, the location is good. The ambience is good. Some of the rooms are very small and are not comfortable like the one which was allotted to us. The breakfast was good and elaborate

    I love the garden outside the Hotel and the lobby ONLY

    All the rooms made from wood and the ground too, So is very noisy. You will hear all the conversation who live next you. When someone around you walk or close his doer you will hear him, it was very bad experiences I will not live in it again.

    We really liked the buffet b'que dinner and the bicycle tour trip. Our guide was wonderful.

    We didn't like the fact that there were so many kids. Our room was in between a group of people who were leaving their doors open with kids running back and forth. The next day we were so happy to know they were leaving. But shortly after they left, more kids were running around screaming. Perhaps you should have a section of the hotel without kids.

    It it just good looking hotel especially Lobby and outside of the hotel.

    The room is not good and not well renovated.The furniture are very old condition,some are broken with no change.The room is very plain decoration like the old house without renovation.The bath room is very old and has no decoration with the low level of water pressure.It is not absolutely worth with the money spending.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel used to be an English Castel so the hotel design is kept as old English style hotel. The hotel is considered as the best hotel in that area and it is close to the lake and city shopping markets. The hotel staff are nice and friendly.

    The hotel doesn't have wifi connection on the room so you have to be in the lobby area for internet connection. The message in the hotel are not professional and they use a bad smell message oil.

    The hotel was excellent. My kids was very scared at first, they were sure that they were going to see ghosts!! Hotel very good, staff friendly the breakfast very good. The coffee shop was the only downside to the hotel. The service was slow and not that friendly. Also word of advice, the main restaurant has a dress code in the evening.
