Wrost worst ever hotel restaurant is wrost rooms are worst washrooms are wrost. Broken doors floors are broken. Nobody should stay here.
It' Has rats, cockroaches, mosquitoes in rooms lobby washrooms.
The only thing good about is GOOD. (DINNER was also, but when found CAT SIZE RATS freely roaming in & out of KITCHEN and LOBBY area ..YUKKKK...)
Rest all is negative. Cramped rooms , no service, staff keeps on sleeping.
We arrived in mid afternoon, allotted a room in half an hour, room was just OK...small in size..bathroom almost a 3 ft and 6 ft. The comode has cover which was broken. but still since we were only there for a night..we did not complain.
Dinner was served and we found it surprisingly ok. (later to regret why we had it..) The next day we had a cruise to havlock island , in morning 5 am. As a practice packed Bfast is provided to all the passengers. we tried waking up the reception guy since 4 AM, but he did not woke up. Then our shock was revealed, we heard noise in kitchen , thinking that it could be some one working in it. When we stepped inside only to find out CAT SIZE RATS freely roaming in kitchen in and out , sitting on OPEN SALAD served at last DINNER..enjoying the left over ....we just ran out of kitchen (am sure had we not the herd of CATS/RATS would have pounced upon us..) however we went without any PACKED breakfast we went and upon asking the staff who only wake up when we were leaving at 5.10 AM, DENIED any existence of bfast. The driver also asked where is your bfast, which we said there is none. Even he was surprised.
Later when we reported this to EXPERIENCE ANDAMAN TOURS (another pathetic experience) they asked hotel manager .MR UDAY ( 7063981458) who in turn falsely informed them that we were given 2 packed bfast and we denied remaining 2 at 6.15 AM..(this is not possible as we were not given any and we left at 5.10 AM) , later he asked us not to MIND this incidence.
Later on Ms Kumari from EXPERIENCE ANDAMAN TOURS (7063927143) also did NOTHING to rectify it. Even mr Awez or mr suraj from EXPERIENCE ANDAMAN TOURS..did nothing when this was reported to them multiple times.
in all I would rate this HOTEL 1 out of 5 (only for its location) .REST AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I happened to stay in this hotel for 3 days last week. The rooms are bad. I had to change almost 3 rooms and in almost all rooms the geyser, a/c or the TV remote was not working. The breakfast was very substandard. There is no lift for old people. They have no choice except to climb stairs. My family happen to vomit after having the sandwich parcel they provided for the breakfast. In total my visit to Andaman was not memorable only because of this hotel stay.
Lets start with hotel. Location is ok. Hotel rooms are pathetic. Smelling, too small, quite bad experience. Trip organisers told that its great but may be for their taste is good. For me worse. This hotel is for people who are too much adjusting. In room u see wires, bathroom u see open wires. Issues of dampness in rooms.food ok. Not so great not so bad. Just eat n go.
I had three day trips to Port Blair, searched hotels on internet,i saw Shine view hotel, after reading review ,i blindly booked the hotel, reaching there, i had good welcome from the hotel staffs,their hospitality,helping tourist to find new places ,arranging transport to visit . I was impressed by the staff. Rooms was clean,i found calmness in the hotel,it's was different feeling from the other cities hotel ,which i visited earlier. Really it's a place to revisit. Thank Shine View staffs.
