“A beautiful stay with impeccable hospitality!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a wonderful time! Special thanks to the caretaker Sunderbhai and his family - they ensured we had a smooth holiday. The villa is absolutely lovely and the view is stunning, and their cooking and hospitality is amazing. We're definitely all going to come back again!

Dear Shreya,It was a pleasure to have you and your family over at our home. Thank you so much for being such wonderful guests and of course for your time for reviewing FHV. We are delighted to note that we were able to reach your expectations. Our business thrives on guests who leave with fond memories and create a wonderful opportunity for us to receive their friends and families.

Once our guests enter the Villa, the endeavor is to create an atmosphere of complete relaxation and an 'At Home' feel. We are happy that you have carried back fond memories of your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you back to FHV soon ! Best regards, Pooja & Sunil""

“Cant wait to go back again !”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Forest Hill Villa for 4 nights in October 2015 and have nothing but good things to say about our stay.

Let me begin by saying that our dealing with Mr.Suneil (the owner) were absolutely stress free. It was a simple case of "what you see is what you get" - no hidden charges, no extra charges and in short a delight. Such simple pleasures are cherished in these times :)

Moving on to our stay - the property is absolutely fantastic, very tastefully made and quite frankly grows on you faster than you realize.

The helper / cook - Sunder bhaiya makes yummy home cooked food and does a killer bar-be-cue. He just not does say NO for anything and his presence makes the holiday so much more enjoyable.

The surrounding areas are quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The highlight of our stay being the long walks in the surrounding areas which sometimes lasted for 2 hours.

The Cottage itself has 3 bedrooms which are very very comfortable. The bathrooms are modern and clean.

The best part is that you're in your own cottage.. we loved cooking our pizzas and making whatever we felt like.. if at all... otherwise we had Sunder Bhaiya to do the regular cooking.

The place has all creature comforts.. a huge TV.. portable speakers to move your party indoors or outdoors.. a nice little garden.. huge bay windows with beautiful views.. recliners to lie down and read n sleep in..

Cant wait to be back there in the summer this time..

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Forest hills is a large well appointed cottage with a picturesque view of the mountains. The owners active involvement shows in every single detail of the property - from the board games for children to the towels in the bathrooms. A special mention to the sincere & courteous staff esp Sundar Bhayyia & his family. They prepared fresh wholesome food everyday - and a special barbeque one night that was savored by all . Though the rain played spoilsport one day , we played cards & games over hot cups of tea with the kids. Highly recommended getaway in the lap of nature disconnected from the humdrum of daily life.

“An Amazing unforgettable stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The stay at the Forest Hill Villa was unlike any other stay, ever experienced. It was for the first time we took an entire villa to ourselves, and honestly were scared of service levels, hygiene and the overall experience.
But, the stay made wonderful by the in-house staff coupled with all the amenities, made the overall stay quite pleasant.
I travelled with my parents and 2 small kids, and none fell out of place, and everyone was quite happy with the stay, and we would definitely recommend it to all the large groups looking to stay at this wonderful place.
Just 1 scope of improvement (though its an external factor): The moisture/moistness in 1 of the bedrooms was not good, am aware most of the hill cottages/villas suffer from this problem, but when it gets in the bedding, its unsettling sometimes.
And yes, the owners need to look into wi-fi connectivity, I know not easy, but would be a good add-on.
