Hi Vivek, thanks for your review. You booked on of our basic lodge rooms that do not have TV and coffee facilities in the room itself, but can be found in the nearby guest lounge (accessible 24/7). All our other room options se deluxe rooms, studio rooms and apartment accommodation offer TV's and tea & coffee facilities in the room itself. Of course there would have been an option to upgrade to one of our other room options if requested by you. Hopefully you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Many thanks for staying with us.

Thanks for your review. We are assuming you stayed in one of our self contained apartments which are only serviced every three days. There can be cooking smell from the previous guests. Sorry we try our best to get rid of any smells. We wish you would have told us while staying here and we might have been able to do something about it. Great to hear you enjoyed dinging in our restaurant. All the best and thanks for staying with us
