When we were searching online for good hotels in Bodhgaya, we found very few hotels and among them we chose to stay in Oaks. The hotel is near to the airport and little far from the sightseeing places. We went by our car but if a person wants to use public transport then will have to wait for few minutes for an auto-rickshaw. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by the Manager there with a wide smile and welcome drinks. We were amazed….we din’t think at all that we will find such good hotel in the small town, Bodhgaya. The staff took us to our room, as already mentioned above room was equipped with every little things one need. The room was very neat and clean, the interior was so soothing. We rested for few hours and went to visit the sightseeing places. We stayed here for three days and not a single time we felt we are not at home. Restaurants to housekeeping to other staffs, they were so active that you need not to call them second time for your requirements. The hotel is so luxurious yet affordable and also has large parking space. Our overall experience of staying at this hotel was wonderful, whether it be a housekeeping, restaurant, reception or the guards – everyone treats you so well with a beautiful smile. We can’t thank the courteous staffs enough for such warm hospitality and making our stay memorable and luxurious.
