we were not given a checkout time, we were also the only people staying in the whole hotel complex, so thought there must not be strict enforcement here, it was also low season & staff were lounging around the complex, it seemed very laid back. on the last day we walked in & out of the building,past reception, who we came to know on a personal level over the 2weeks, multiple times throughout the day (we were going back & forth to the local shops..at least 5times) & nothing was said to us either. then finally when we went to checkout we were told we needed to pay for an extra night because we stayed past checkout time. this same man saw us walking in & out of the complex all day & greeted us every time, yet didn't mention anything until now. what was more frustrating is that a friend of mine (a local indian) enquired about the same stay (3 adults, same dates) & quoted a price almost half of what we paid! I didn't bother to complain about this until the hotel decided they wanted more money from us for not checking out on time. we complained & explained all of what I have written above but they continued to argue back. it was obvious nothing was said all day so that they could charge later, behaviour was sneaky. its just silly on their part because I visit india every year & was really happy with the hotel atmosphere & location. if this incident didn't occur I definitely would have stayed here again. but they have lost 3 customers, plus those who I will tell about my experience.
