A hotel establishment with a total capacity of 70 en-suite rooms. Refurbishment work was ongoing during our inspection. The refurbishment work comprised of redoing the floor finishes, wall paintings, changing all plumbing works and some electrical fittings.

The property has a good layout and is developed on a generous plot extending to about four decimal two acres. We note it has high potential for further developments. Due to this high potential for re-development, we have ignored the buildings in arriving at the value and have used the comparable approach to value the land only.
