Although the place is good but the some systems are really not acceptable and you feel like being in a hostel
They close the main door to lawn by 10:30 to 11 pm and open by 7 pm which is really pathetic as if you can’t access the lawn then you have nothing here
Then they provide morning tea by 8:30 am so you have no access to anything for such wonderful environment at outside
We had spoken to the management but they also couldn’t help anything
