Overall experience was good, place on the way from Chandigarh to Shimla, hotel location fabulous on the top of mountain, arrange the of timber trail to carry you from roadside to top of hill, feel like walking in the clouds, ambience was great, and the food too.
Bugged from hectic city life, visiting Parwanoo was like a fresh bout of life. A quiet, serene, romantic place away from hassles of city, no one to disturb around. For a moment we forgot our life problems and just enjoy the nature and the silence. Far away you can see the highway and numerous vehicles and lights from the terrace. The ropeway to the timber trail heights is quite an enjoyable experience. The terrace and the restaurant and the food, all add up to a total refreshing experience. Do visit if you want a quiet place to rejuvenate your life.
I have been wanting to visit this place ever since I had heard about the location & the cable car. A perfect timing came our way as we were visiting a family member in Chandigarh on a Saturday, so decided to visit & stay at this hotel for a night We are a family of 3, Me, my wife & our less than a year old kid As a part of the procedure, one has to come to Timber trail resort, which is located near the Parwanoo turn on Chandigarh Shimla highway. Safe Vehicle parking is available, free of cost for in-house guests. Guest has to provide basic details about their booking to procure the free cable car ticket & to check in the luggage Once you board the cable car, it's a different world altogether. The experience is fabulous minus the warm temperature of the car. The view is extremely amazing but can be scary for those who are afraid of heights The hotel reception has been made well but the staff attitude gives you a feeling of a horse with horse tack We were staying in a deluxe room, which is average in size, poor in view, moreover not being maintained from the perspective of rodent, insects prevention. Built quality is also poor Most of the times I book a base category room & than take a paid upgrade from the hotel in case I like the superior categories, but here superior category room (Junior Suite) was very far from the area, we decided not to go for it. The view from the room was fabulous. Would recommend this room to travellers who are not travelling with dependants or kids as they would have to walk quite a bit to reach their room. A small balcony sit out is also part of these room but its very small for 2 people to sit with ease Restaurant cum pub is average sized once again, however, the food can be rated as good at least if not very good or excellent but very high priced. The hotel is at a remote location so there are no next door eating joints available, travellers must carry some ready to eat F&B if they want to save some money Hotel provides decent recreational facilities (some on chargeable basis, some free) & adventure sports (on chargeable basis but highly priced) so that you don't get bored during the day.
Everything was good about the hotel. First of all describing about the location. It was really good we need to reach the hotel by means of cable car so that was another good experience to have. Then the room was really good and the view from room was amazing, just imagine the view from top of mountain. The food and hospitality from hotel was really good. Just take care of one thing that try to reach there before 6 pm as after that the cable car doesn't works.
We enjoyed our stay. The view from top is awesome that's the only USP of the hotel rest food is nice but costly. The cable car cost is too much 650 per person. All recreational activities are chargeable. To accommodate more guests they have constructed very small rooms with less space. Overall we enjoyed cable car trip and view from hill.
This hotel was located in the main city. I did not face any difficulty in check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was good. The room was maintained very well and the rooms were spacious, neat and clean with all the basic amenities. Washroom was maintained hygienically and water facility was available for 24 hours. Then food was tasted well and quality was good. There were no activities conducted in this hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel for other travellers.
Left Delhi being over excited to go on a small road trip and a 2 day stay at Timber Trail Heights which ends as soon we reach the heights First encounter: Ms Lalita welcomes us by saying that the only luggage cart is available and a 75 year old has to walk the long slope, the luggage cart cannot have any person other than the driver. But we made sure he sits in that and goes up Second: Ms Swati heard the plight and apologized and made sure Lalita drops us to our rooms but she manages to escape Third: Had to have snacks as the kitchen closes at 4 pm, which is perfectly okay. Snack and munchies for 6 adults and 4 kids lands up being Rs. 6500 and no one is happy cause the food sucks and the service is pathetic. They won't offer you water or a smile. Still bearable Fourth: the rooms and view is nice and amazing, respectively. They were clean but had a slight smell and best part a double bed is literally a double bed. 2 beds joined together to made one. You can imagine how bad that is for a couple Fifth: the recreating centre is good and the uncle who is over there is very sweet but everything is paid for, they tease you by offering limited time free activities per room and post that you need to pay for even snakes and ladder. Funny and new concept Sixth: at 10:30 they shut dinner service and order was made at the restaurant but charge would be in room dining and guy directly said no, we won't help you. I would say it's okay but at least say I'll see what best I can do. That makes me feel human Seventh: we belong to that group which says that breakfast is the most important part of the day and this place will make you feel like you in a 2 star hotel with their spread and quality Eight: the thought that this place should be called timber jail heights. You need to pay 625 per head if you wish to go down. Management should be clear about this Ninth: everyone is just busy attending the marriage celebrations and people who pay are neglected as marriages are big business and big money. That is main aim of this property Tenth: checkout was smooth and timber trail ride was perfectly okay to go Conclusion: If you want to waste your money and crib about spending that much money on this place then please go. Spend like a king and be treated like a servant Lastly you can take your own food or drinks so stock good amount of cash to spend on over priced and under service things PLEASE DON'T GO TO STAY FOR MORE THAN A DAY Money money and no quality no service and no respect that's the mantra of Timber Jail Heights.
We stayed two nights in the hotel during June 2014, it was a nice stay there but it is advisable only for relaxing in between road trip of Manali, Shimla and Delhi since you don't have anything to do at the such height, the approach to hotel is by ropeway only and it is free for only one time during your stay (even though you stay for 2-3 days) but they will charge the huge amount per person say around 1000/- each time when you wish to go to downtown by ropeway. Rest all is fine, so my advise is that it is good for relaxing only for 1 night.
It is one of the best hotel in India at 5000 feet. You can reach this hotel from rope way and stay was totally comfortable. Services of this hotel is also appreciable. One of the best hotel I have ever stayed yet. I enjoyed at peak point.
The hotel was nearby the railway station. I went there in my own vehicle and the parking facility was there in the hotel. The appearance of the hotel was good. Check-in & check-out procedure was not delayed. The hotel staff behaviour was helpful. The room was spacious, neat, clean & maintained. All the basic amenities were provided in the room and working fine. I get the good view from the room. The quality of the food was good. The vegetarian and non-vegetarian food was provided. There was a buffet system in food. The other activities were organized by the hotel. I had been there with family. I don't have any suggestion and everything was good. The hotel was value for money.
