These opinions are very basic, I'm not trying to dish out AA or RAC star ratings, I just like to know that a place is clean, comfortable and safe to park a bike, for further information on a hotel/guest house try Google.
Hotel links are in bold, images are not the greatest due to saving web space and keeping upload time to a minimum.
Obviously all Information is variable,These prices are quoted for one person staying in a single sometimes double room also take into account season and length of stay, ac, non ac, hot water or how much you can barter. In Sri Lanka you will find a service charge and goverment tax being added to your total bill sometimes adding as much as 30% to it. While here always confirm everything you pay for as a two price system operates, local and tourist for everything, accom, food and drink.
These little critters can make your life a misery so always travel prepared. Nets are the best for a quiet nights kip (not all hotels have them), can be a problem hanging it's just a case of improvising. Plug-in smellies are good, please note power cuts do happen frequently in some places. Coils are good but do tend to leave the air a bit smoggy. Sprays and lotions are also a great help, you can never have to much of a defence.
Secure, usually a car park that is locked and is not accessable by the public and the bike is locked in.
Safe, normally where a bike maybe hidden from general view or a security/nightwatchman is on duty, but no guarantee of having some one play with your machine.
Risk, generally parked in public or on hotel doorstep where there's no security at all. Please remember this is India and not England where the life of a bike on the streets is about 20min's if you're lucky. A Royal Enfield is regarded as a wealthy persons bike so if one can afford to run one he can afford to buy one too.
I have tried to photograph my bike in all the hotel locations its been parked, so please view the links of hotels whose letters are in bold.
