Don't stay here unless u want to be spoilt rotten!
I can't begin to describe the level of attentiveness the staff at The Merchant House bestowed upon me during my stay there. Kudos to the housekeeping supervisor Jalapathi and the FOH crew at reception (especially Ahmed) for their customer service skills and to Veeranan at the spa. I'm so glad I booked this hotel. :) x
