    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Rooms were not clean. Coorg hotel was no where near the market. Cockroaches in the room. We have to wait for more than 3 hours to check in Mysore hotel. Mysore hotel's manager was too arrogant. Service was very slow. We have been told there will no Oyo rooms from the package. But have got Oyo rooms in coorg and mysore. Need to travel for more 4-5 kms to reach to coorg hotel's breakfast restaurant. There was only 1 option given for breakfast in Coorg. I have been told I will get so many options in the breakfast. Nothing I got. Mysore hotel didn't give us breakfast. I ate it outside and Lee vacations paid me for that. Ooty hotel was good but the service was damn slow. We literally have to wait for half an hour to get water bottle. Breakfast was very limited. Only idli and bread. Cab driver was good. He knows each and every thing about the place.

    • Trip to Coorg

      The hotel booking for Coorg Hoysala Comfort was not good. We told our agent to change it. Agent done immediately booking. And that's Parampara residency was good. But, for last day of trip again the same problem raised. When the other hotel was booked. It was not safe for girls. That was homestay and It was in jungle. No safety no security, by seeing that we being girls, did not feel comfortable.. Again we told to agent to change it. And he changed, the new allotment was a guest house, no ac, no enough lights in room and bathroom, no sufficient fans. The experience in matter of hotel is bad.
