I want to spend some quality time with my wife where a get some peace in manali. While searching online ,my wife suggest me this hotel and after seeing good review of manali lodge I decided to stay there. I called the owner Ravi Thakur on his mobile to book room and by just talking I realize he is very polite and nice person.
When we reach at manali bus stand , taxi was already there for pick up. When we reach hotel I got very happy for my decision to stay there. View you see out from the hotel is awesome. Montains covered with snow. I got a warm welcome by manager(I forgot the name). The room is ready but when I asked him to show other rooms so that I can select the best room. He readily agree and showed me couple of rooms but I didn't find much difference in any of the room so I stay in the room same room.(I visit there in off season so most of the hotel is empty).
I order TEA , It was one of the best tea of my life(I am very fond of TEA). And believe me they serve one of the best food of manali , They cook fresh food so you should have some Patient or have to order in advance so that you got it on time. You can ask for food that you want to eat even out of menu , the only thing is you have to tell them in well advance. I would like to thanks the chef for nice and tasty food.
They arrange cab for sight seeing.(At manali mall road's taxi stand there is a board showing rates for different activities you can do at snow points, Please read it otherwise they shopkeeper's will cheat you)
Hotel is new and well managed , every bathroom has geyser . Staff is well mannered and very helpful. I was there in off season but they gave me five star service. Mr. Ravi , his manager and other staff members all are nice and polite.
The only cons of this hotel is ,it is far from mall road or city. But I don't think people come manali for shopping so it doesn't matter how far your hotel is from the city. If you come here in search of peace then this is a perfect budget hotel.
