This is almost 20 year old hotel and one of the biggest hotel in Almora with parking. It is a budget hotel with lift and they have one of the biggest terrace available. Also I was travelling with driver and they offer free night stay to driver also. It is very near to restaurants Try to book family room as it is most economical and good.
The overall, experience was average. The location was convenient and there was facility for parking. The staff behaviour was friendly with good services. The appearance was average. The room was not clean and they provided AC, geyser and TV. There was no view from the room. The food was average, they provided breakfast. There was no difficulty in paying bill. It was a family trip for relaxation. There were no extra facilities like swimming pool, indoor games, gym etc. The money was reasonable and average.
This is not a tourist hotel, this is generally occupied by those who come for some or the other activity in Almora, sometimes by army persons too. The location is good, at the center of the small town of Almora, near to taxi stand and bus stand. The hotel is built on a hill and one side is the beautiful valley view. Executive rooms have the best view. Food is good, especially soups and snacks. Service is prompt but the crew is really untrained. If you are looking for a romantic place, this is not the one but a good budget hotel with all basic amenities to spend a few days in.
The hotel is well located, in the heart of the city. Taxi stand, car parking and local market, all round the corner. The hotel has its own car parking, though. The hotel provides free accommodation and free staff food to the drivers. There is also lift facility which proved useful . The hotel is very spacious and airy. The room has a nice valley and mountain view. The terrace and courtyard are huge. The food was too good, and delicious. Staff are nice, well behaved. Keeping in mind the location, facilities and service, the tariff is very reasonable .
First time when I visited this hotel, I was wondering after getting down from car where is hotel it is only after you reach inside that you understand that all five floors and other base floors are below you alongside a hill overlooking a valley and you actually go down to rooms with a view !!! And climb up for front office Shikhar is one of the oldest and reputed hotels of Almora. Rooms are large but average but are reasonably priced. There is one more new wing which has little modern rooms but are not spacious. Rooms have beautiful view of hills and you get evening sun. There are few terraces from which you can enjoy tranquil hills Toilets are provided with only soap and dettol hand wash, it is advised to carry your own toiletries The activities which can be carried out are strolling in mall and visiting nearby temples and museum While departing from Almora don't forget to buy famous signature sweets of Almora "Balmithai and Singori" from Khim Singh Mohan Singh Routella Sweet Shop, which is at a walking distance from Hotel Shikhar.
I was in hotel Shikhar to spent some time with my family. The hotel is well constructed with good staff. I have taken 3 star room so according to the price the room is much more good then expected very clean, large double bed with clean blanket, TV is small but I am comfortable with that because I was there to spent time with my family not to watch TV. The room also had balcony with very nice sight seeing and sunset. The staff is nice, alert and quick on ordering anything. I thought if you prefer outside restaurant food then it will be good because the taste of food is not up to the mark in hotel Shikhar. This hotel is situated in the main market so you do not need to worry for any article that you miss in home. I am so excited that soon I will go to Almorah and stay in hotel Shikhar.
