It was a very short stay at Holiday Inn. We checked in and checked out in just 2 hours. It was not because the hotel was bad and we checked out immediately, but it was because of cruise (Makruzz) related issues post Cyclone Vardah phase. We had no prior booking at this place. We had to move to Havelock during our trip but due to Cyclone Vardah all cruises were cancelled and lot of stranded tourists at Havelock Island and Neil Island were yet to be evacuated. As our afternoon cruise to Havelock Island was initially cancelled we checked into this place. But later as we got a call about resumption of cruise services we checked out immediately. In just 2 hours we could get a nice feeling about this place and the staff. Neat and clean rooms, bathrooms and lobby. Definitely good value for money.
