Hotel has great ambiance with parking space

Posted 9 Sep, 2015

It was a totally different experience we were in a group and this place is perfect for such a holiday. The hotel has great ambiance with parking space. The rooms were good and staff were friendly. Only thing which was a bit disappointing is its location. And the best part was food it was delicious. They managed the group very well.

Cooperative staff, conveniently located

Posted 20 Jul, 2015

The staff of the hotel were very good and cooperative. The hotel was conveniently located. The appearance of the hotel was very nice and looks modern. The room and the wash room were cleaned regularly. The room given to me was neat, clean, spacious and maintained. The hot and cold water facility was provided. I was not able to see any view from my room. All the amenities were in working condition. The hotel served both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food and the quality of the food was good. The price was not reasonable. The activities and sightseeing was not conducted by the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to visit for other travellers.

Co-operative staff; well-maintained rooms

Posted 26 Sep, 2014

When I visited Manali, I stayed in this hotel. Location of the hotel was very nice and near to the bus stand, railway station. I reached the hotel easily. Behaviour of the staff was co-operative. They had given quick responses to all our requests. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was good. Everything was fine. Room was neat, clean and well maintained but not spacious. Outside view was available from the room window. They provided food facility according to our choice. Food was tasty. I faced no problem during check-in and check-out facility. Swimming pool, gym and other activities were not present there. Hotel arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip. I travelled there in February month 2013 with my family. Overall my destination in Manali was value for money. This is a recommendable hotel to other travelers. Camp-fire facility was available there but they charged extra money for this activity.

Overall it was good

Posted 20 Sep, 2014

It was difficult to reach because it was in the interior. I travelled by own vehicle. Appearance and food was okay. Rooms were also okay. There was no view. No complimentary breakfast or dinner. No WiFi and parking space. It was somewhat value for money. Overall it was good. I would like to stay in that hotel again. They should have proper directions to reach the hotel. There were indoor games.

Mountain view from the room is good

Posted 26 Aug, 2014

Hotel appearance was very good, it is located at about 1 and half-a-kilometre from the bus stand and it is in city centre with parking space facility. During our stay hotel staff were very courteous, and very attentive to all my needs. Good housekeeping services. Room's interior & accessories are very impressive, it was spacious, neat and clean with good working basic amenities like AC, TV, fridge and geyser facility in the room and there was a mountain view from the room. No issues at the time of check in and check out. I had north and south Indian food varieties, which was I stayed and the food was very good. There were no activities. They should need to arrange the gym facility and children play area. I visited this place for relaxation with family in 2011.

Spacious rooms, excellent view.

Posted 4 May, 2014

As a family who loves to travel, Shimla had been a disappointment in terms of the hotel, number of people (was awfully crowded) and we decided not to make the same mistake at Manali. Before going for our tour, we just happened to browse through this cottage and kept its contact details with us. Our sole aim was to stay away from the main market area and this place did not disappoint us . Positives: Spacious rooms which were clean and tidy. The view from the room was excellent. The location of the property is such that you cross the road and you can sit on the banks of River Beas and enjoy the music which the mighty river plays. The interiors are minimal - LCD TV, wardrobe and sitting area. Beds are huge and soft. No dirty linen to irk you and spoil your mood. Bathrooms are spacious and hot water was available. The property belongs to ex-army personnel; however, there is couple who looks after the property. The guy looks after all your needs - logistics, he will run errands for you while the lady looks after the meals. The food was just amazing, nothing fancy but all so simple and delicious - ask her to prepare the custard (which is just so amazing). For meals, make sure you tell them beforehand as they would need to prepare accordingly. In the evening we sipped on hot chai and garam pakoras in the garden with white snow-clad mountains in the background. They have carom and chess which you can play at leisure and also badminton rackets. However, those seeking solitude, just sit out there in the lawn below apple trees. You are so away from the city and so close to nature. Read a book, listen to music, write a poem or just gaze and bask yourself to glory and some sun shine . Negatives: No parking space - cars have to be parked outside and no rooms/ dormitory for the drivers. No pool, other luxurious facilities - it is not a Five Star property, so expecting such facilities would not do justice. Few more indoor games should be made available, since there are only rooms, bookings can be cumbersome. Very far (8 from the main market and no restaurants nearby, so make sure you decide beforehand only and also it located on the Kullu Manali highway, not enough light on the road- be careful when driving . Recommendations: If you are a family who wish peace and want to be away from the madness - This is the place for you to be. Perfect for budget travelers . .

It was conveniently located travelled by own vehicle and there was good parking facility and experience was good. The staff were friendly in quickly with room in average condition and amenities in working condition. There was a river view and it was relaxation trip with couple. I had food outside the hotel as we were out. There was no delay in check in and check out and had no activities. The stay was expensive and would recommend other travellers.

View from our room is so beautiful

Posted 7 Oct, 2013

Our stay in river view cottages is quite memorable. The view from our room is so beautiful that sometimes we just want to sit in the balcony and watch the view . Manali is itself a worth watching place and that too blessed with beautiful sight from the **** is a treat . The services of the travel agency are also good and deserves appreciation . I congratulate them for providing good services . Cleanliness is maintained;room service is good;food is also nice . I really enjoy my trip . As it makes me feel free from all hassles of travelling. Thanks for your kind services and making my trip memorable .
