Comfortable stay in Kasauli

5.9/7
Posted 22 Nov, 2017

This was the last part of a 9 night travel for us and had awful experiences of HPTDC hotels already in the trip so expectation wasn't that good, but on the contrary we found its pretty neat and well maintained inspite of being an old facility which makes one feel staying back in the British India, the feel is pretty well maintained. Food was really great , the best we had in the trip & the cook, manager and all the staff seemed to be really well mannered & helpful.

Nice heritage property!

5.4/7
Posted 11 Jan, 2016

Stayed in this property last year. Centrally located , has a huge rooms. Being a heritage property it lacks modern amenities but gives you a very nostalgic feeling. Rooms are otherwise neat and clean and so is the bathroom. Food quality, quantity and taste is good but you will have to order in advance. I would surely recommend fellow travellers to consider this property while opting for a hotel in Kasauli.

Not recommended

3.8/7
Posted 19 Oct, 2015

I stayed in Ros Common during 10th n 11th of October 2015, I was expecting wonderful services as affiliated to HP Govt but I was in disappointed side. Kasauli good place to stay, location of hotel is really outstanding but conditions of room, TV nn service are poor. Restaurant is just OK. It's too expensive than Manali n Shimla. A few examples of services- 1. No pick up or drop to bus station/taxi stand 2. I didn't carry printout of booking as in digital age, receptionist told me to pay 10/- Rs for printout. 3. 2 times mistake by restaurant service, ordered 'x' n served 'y' 4. Atmosphere at reception is like I m lucky to get this hotel. If you are middle class or just middle class, this is not for you.... Waste of money n time with them.

Best place to stay

5.0/7
Posted 1 Aug, 2015

It's an old colonial bungalow having 5 rooms in the main building and three rooms in the annexe nearby. Nice neat rooms maintained by HPTDC. Good food and friendly staff. Book well in advance. Situated in best possible location with good views of hills and valleys.

A peaceful place to relax yourself

6.7/7
Posted 18 Jul, 2015

I've stayed here twice now. On both the events, it was in the annexee range. Those are 2 room sets and around 200 mtrs far from the principle lodging. That makes it significantly all the more energizing. The rooms are essential, spotless and decent. The washrooms are unadulterated. In the event that you don't expect top class extravagance, then this spot is for you. It's not extravagant also henceforth justified, despite all the trouble. Verify you arrange enough nourishment on the off chance that you stay in the annexee rooms since it sets aside quite a while for them to convey sustenance there.The spot is found far from the hustle clamor of the town and gives an exceptionally unwinding environment. The nourishment served is delectable and the beautiful magnificence raises the entire experience

5.6/7
Posted 4 May, 2010

The Ros Common enjoys a good location. Its front lawns give panoramic views of the snow capped distant Himalayas in the horizon on a clear day. It is an old colonial building, but there are others more quaint close by such as the Grande Maurice. Pricing wise, the rooms and food cost more at the Ros Common than in other HPTDC run hotels - without offering anything better or extra. The hotel is quiet, being about 1/2km from the Kasauli market area. It is good for a short relaxing break especially for those who live in Chandigarh. The staff were courteous and polite. We chose this hotel just as a night halt to break our long drive back to Delhi from Narkanda. I do not think I would stay here or even visit Kasauli again.

We have been regulars to this hotel. It has not changed over the years...only change being new TV and may be a fan. The best is its location far away from the market bustle but yet near to the mall.....the surroundings are great with big trees...a nice garden for children and to have food in front of the mountain landscape...the staff eventhough govt employees offer better service than many private ones...

Nice rooms, poor cab service

6.3/7
Posted 25 Oct, 2011

Kasauli is a small town far away from the hustle bustle of the busy world, and staying at ROs Common makes it more beautiful. Beautiful trekking routes, climb up the monkey point and walking thru the clouds (literally) made it a wonderful trip.

Hotel has little in common to another hotel.

5.3/7
Posted 2 Sep, 2013

After 5 days of hectic job, you desperately wish to run away to a place far away from the hassle of the city. And that's where Kasuali, comes into the picture. We planned our visit in advance, and after going through reviews from different platforms, we zeroed down to Hotel Ros Common. A Himachal Government undertaking, this hotel has little in common to another hotel. For you feel at ease, the moment you enter the premises. The slowness has its own charm, as this is the exact reason for which one has visited this place. You will quickly be given room keys and smiling room boy will escort you there. There is nothing fancy about the hotel. But, whatever is there, in terms of rooms, food, other facilities, all are in place to make your stay comfortable. Room rates are moderate. Food is tasty but overpriced. And the only thing which may bother during your stay might be monkeys, who can trouble you, if you wish to order your lunch sitting in a small well maintained open garden. Kasauli, does not offer much to do in terms of activities but you feel at peace during your walk down Mall road, well maintained nature spots. Overall, if being close to nature, having a peaceful quite stay is your agenda, then Kausali and Ros Common will exactly offer you same.

Nicely located with calm surroundings; recommended

5.2/7
Posted 24 Mar, 2015

We were 3 friends who wanted to move out of our busy schedule and relax at a calm location. After initial research we zeroed in for Kasauli as we could easily drive and come back in 3 days. The trip served its purpose and all 3 of us really enjoyed the trip which included stay at Ross Common and local sight seeing at Kasauli. Ross Common was suggested by common friends and it lived up to all its expectations as described. Ross Common is nicely located which gives a good view of mountains, calm surroundings and also it has a large garden in which you can enjoy with your family and friends. We had booked both Deluxe and Suite rooms in which we stayed one day each. I would say the suite room was really worth each penny spent in terms of interiors, view and space. Spending time at garden during evening supper and dinner is very relaxing. Hotel is well-maintained and has warm, courteous staff. Food was ok as we ordered dinner only once and rest of the occasions we had food outside. Also located near to Monkey point and local market, where you can reach both by walking and driving. We would advise advance online booking rather than turning up at the hotel to do spot booking as we saw many returning back due to full occupancy. This hotel remains booked mostly so online booking is definitely recommended. We checked at other hotels for food and we found that those were very expensive and not upto mark if compared with Ross common. We would definitely recommend Ross Common to all those planning for stay at Kasauli.
