Went for a family holiday, specially wanted to go 'off beat', away from the crowds The place is well maintained and located. Beautiful view and very peaceful location. The room has all the basic amenities and heaters were provided on request, at additional cost. The linen was clean, room was carpeted Food was good, simple home cooked food. The Himachali special dishes were very tasty and definitely worth a try. Service was good and very efficient. Courteous staff, more than willing to help out The weather changes abruptly when it rains, so it was really cold one evening and warm and sunny the next day. Must carry enough woollens, we were caught unawares Go here for a getaway away from the usual and just to enjoy the surroundings. Can walk around the apple orchard and places around, it's a hilly area. We took a short trip to Shimla which was avoidable. Shimla was too crowded with lots of traffic.
Hotel is booked by my company. I stayed there only one night. Dinner was not so hot. Room is good, but the room size so small. As I went there in winters so, I have no problem. But in summers may be some problem. Staff is so lazy, but the manager is cooperative.
I stayed in North moon home stay in the first week of June for couple of Nights. Best thing about North moom home stay was their hospitality. Normally, when people travel from south to north, you will have some insecure feeling. But, this place owned by Mr. Sharma and family, they will treat you like their own children. Excellent home cooked food. Pleasant views and great hospitality.
We wanted to be away from the hustle & bustle of the Shimla town, so booked ourselves with North Moon in Fagu. The location was very beautiful, cool, calm, and peaceful with views of the valleys and the green mountains from the rooms. The walls of the rooms are done up with deodar wood which gives out a pleasant natural aroma. The room is large enough to accommodate three people and very clean including the bed linen. So is the attached bathroom. The night temperature is 10 degrees or so even in summer.. As nature lovers we could discover the real forest and breathtaking mountain ranges with a few minutes of walking from the home stay. We were to reach Shimla from Delhi by Howrah Kalka train on a particular Saturday. However, since the train was delayed inordinately , more than seven hours, we had to cancel our very trip and reschedule to the following week. The owner of the homestay Mr Suresh Sharma was more than willing to reschedule our stay as desired without any additional charges. Mr Sharma is available on mobile phone or email for booking and all your requirements like, clarifications, pick-up and drop, organizing site seeing, trekking and all that you require as a tourist. Since it is a home stay there is no front office as such, but you would not miss it at all as the owners are just a calling -bell away. Shortcomings , though none, will be sorted out to keep the guests happy and comfortable. Mrs & Mr Sharma believe in " Athithi Devobhava", and feel good when guests are satisfied. The food is extremely good as they use organically grown farm-fresh vegetables. Mrs Sharma would serve you with all special food items of Himachal Pradesh. The dishes which she prepares like sedu, patanda, arkalu, dhindara, lauta, dona, madra by herself with home -made ghee, make your mouth water. The traditional Pahadi Sattu made of Bengal Gram, barley and a few other local ingredients which they serve with curds is very tasty and nutritious. We were also welcomed with their organically grown apples (they have around a 1000 apple plants) The family is very friendly and give you the feeling of at home there. Mr Sharma makes it a point to spend some time with the guests. The knowledge and experiences that he shares with the guests is highly informative. In short, all that they claim in their website is genuine. At the price that you pay it is much more than just value for your money. Would recommend this place.
