Best homestay

Posted 9 Jan, 2016

A beautiful house with the most amazing hosts. We were there for New years. This property is not amongst the busy areas at a very peaceful side in Chota Simla. Sanjiv aunty is a perfectionist and hence the service is better than any hotel. Every smallest need is taken care of. Fresh towel were placed in our room each day before we could even ask for it. The rooms & bathrooms are always well kept and cleaned in regular intervals. The best part was the heating bags placed under our quilts for the night for our feet which was so thoughtful. We were really well taken care of. The house is a beautiful property with pine trees all over the property. They have 2 very friendly dogs in the house. The home-cooked food is a must atleast once. Billy uncle is a great artist and would love to show you his beautiful drawings and paintings if you would like. Such an insightful couple. We had an issue with our driver and wanted to get another one so the hosts immediately helped us getting a local driver. A great place to stay in with the sweetest couple.

Friendly and helpful staff with well-maintained room

Posted 19 Jan, 2015

About two to three years back in the month of June I had visit this hotel with my family. The location of the hotel was good and had a good experience too. The best thing I liked at this hotel was its interior appearance. The surrounding of the hotel was maintained. The staff and services at this hotel were helpful and friendly. The food provided at its restaurant was good in taste. There were no delays in check-in and check-out process. The room that was provided to me was spacious, maintained with good amenities like T. V, A. C and geyser. There were no activities and sightseeing trips organized by the hotel management. The hotel was valuable and suggestive to other visitors.

Expensive hotel with well-maintained rooms and quality foods

Posted 29 Sep, 2014

I had an amazing experience at this hotel but the stay was bit expensive. The hotel is not as conveniently located as it is very far from the city. There was sufficient parking place and the services at the hotel were excellent and staff members were cooperative. The room allotted to me was spacious and maintained neatly with basic amenities and had a beautiful view of mountain. The food was delicious both in quality and taste with lots of varieties. The hotel did not delay while checking in or checking out. I surely recommend this hotel to other travellers.
