Hotel Shankar has world class staff

The staff is wonderful! The hotel is clean, and the garden is beautiful
We had a wonderful stay at Shankar. The staff is superb. The hotel is clean and is a great escape from the loud and chaotic city. The garden is a haven of tranquility. Power outages are reduced to mere seconds, and there is plenty of hot water. The beauty of the hotel is also breathtaking.

Peter M. Families with young children Australia, April 27, 2015
During the earthquake. Wonderful service.

1. The attentiveness of the staff to our needs was exceptional. 2. The food was superb, even when limited resources after the earthquake. 3. Dedication of the staff even though their famlies affected
We stayed for 3 nights. Friday, Saturday (when earthquake struck) and Sunday. The staff we exceptionally dedicated to providing for us 3 meals a day (at no extra cost) and accommodation in the new dining wing (which did have any major structural damage). We couldn't have asked for more. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families. Also hope they organize to get the hotel repaired and functioning fully again soon.
