    We had booked through yatra travels for a personalised trip to Dalhousie and Manali. We got good response from yatra. But the hotel in Manali I.e sunpark resort was pathetic. They gave us basic standard rooms of tarrif Rs 1700 which had no heaters but we had done booking for superior delux room for Rs 2500 including heaters and the rooms were on 3 rd floor and the building had no lifts but we booked fir ground or 1 st floor. when requested to shift to first floor as we had two small childrens of 3 years they refused. The hotel staff and the service was very poor and not cooperative at all. While requesting for the feedback form they were making excuses and after long they took our feedback which they said they won't take us seriously. They took our signature on invoice billed for superior delux rooms.
    It was our worst nightmare in the hotel and would never ever in my life would go to SUNPARK RESORTS or neither suggest any one to go to this resort in Manali.
