“Return visit”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Last year the pencil tree project was born at Kailwood guest house and we will be returning for Surrinder and Sanjay,s hospitality this year with new friends . Just far enough from town for some peace but still so close to the action . Views to die for and the smiles are free. Very special budget accomodation.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

The new top floor rooms are nice. But they were full and I had to stay on the first level where the room was very very average and bathroom was quite shabby. So stayed only 1 night and left for another hotel the very next morning.

The walls are really thin you can practically hear everything from the next room.

The owners were only interested in foreign tourists and quite indifferent to Indians I felt.

Do not go by their website, since only limited rooms are shown on the portal. Majority rooms are quite shabby.

I stayed in Kailwood for a month(dec-jan), it was just great. Rooms were nice and cozy. The guys are cool, I had no problem with the guys, others staying there were also of my opinion I guess. The view to the valley is just too pleasant and guys who manage the place cook delicious meals so don't miss out on trying that.

Room Tip: Undoubtedly the one that looks at the valley, I didnt have it but one must try.

The place is very quiet, walls are paper thin. The flight of stairs to get to the rooms are never ending, so if you have heavy luggage then you're in for a bit of exercise. The rooms are clean and well maintained, the verandah has an awesome view with a couple of tables and chairs for an evening tea. Location is a plus, very close to the Mcleod ganj central point.

Restaurants are just about 5 min walk. Staff is quite young and can facilitate your adventure treks, travel needs, etc.

If you are young and want to play music or have a house party with your friends, then avoid this place.

This is a great place near McLeod Ganj centre, but away from the noise. Our room was big, but it was one of the cheapest ones, so it was dark a little bit, but still clean. Staff there are very polite and helpful. They serve very good veg thali in the evening time. We enjoyed our stay, highly recommended!

The two guys at this guest house are very accommodating and they provide excellent service and great home cooked food. I had a spacious room with a view of tall trees, hot water, kitchen and I loved it. I could not stay long enough as I had to leave after a few days stay. I highly recommend this guest house. My stay was in April/May 2013. Beautiful weather in McleodGanj. I plan to go there again soon.

Room Tip: Try to check out all available rooms.

There is a room to suit all travellers! Rooms up top are spacious with kitchens & either have sunny valley views or treetop outlook
Rooms at other levels are clean & offer something for any budget
The staff are fantastic! Surrinder & Sanjay do their best to make you feel like part of the family
The food is great from their kitchen & nothing is too much trouble & it's great value for money
Can't recommend this place highly enough

Room Tip: Ask them to show you a variety of rooms to fit your budget
