“nice place but in need of urgent upgradation and investment”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The place is nice and service is good . Although a few upgradation is required urgently.
a) the fans in the bedroom make terrible noise and are a abomination and do not allow the guests to sleep since they make terrible noise. i suggest that you upgrade to better and newer technology which is little more expensive but will add value to the room
b) The linen and towels also need upgradation, so do the bath toiletries. As do the curtains and the locks on the door
c) Now days good size Tv are not that expensive and after so many years of operation i am sure they can be installed.
d) The presence of Cc Tv camera in the living and dining room is a blatant invasion of privacy and although i understand that it comes in handy with Guests in India who are known for their misconduct, i am sure that the percentage is not that high , so Guests who are not in that category and have booked the entire 6 rooms would not appreciate the presence of Cc Tv inside the premises. One option is that they should be switched off in case the entire property is booked and remain on in other cases. Also i am sure that there are better management techniques that can be deployed to keep tabs on the employees if that is one of the concerns.
e) All in all a nice place with great food, service and hospitality but hoping that the management considers the above points as constructive criticism and find means to address the same.
f) One of the classic cases in India is seen here that once a place clicks and start doing business hardly anyone bothers to keep up pace with time and does the periodic investments in upgradation and upkeep, but since the owner is a well travelled individual with exposure to many countries i am sure that the next time i visit the place will be upgraded.

Thank you for taking your time in posting this review. We certainly welcome all forms of customer feedback but in this case, you seem to have misused this under the guise of constructive criticism.
While we do not agree to each and every point you have raised, we have certainly made a note of them. It would have been nice if could have raised the issues you have mentioned while I was staying in our other property Dala Mare during the entire time you stayed in Dala Rooster. I only got a very positive feedback from your family members I spoke to, prior to your departure.
The fans you mentioned are of standard quality and brand and are well maintained. All bedrooms are air conditioned and you have a choice to use them as well. We have not come across anybody complaining about the terrible noise of the fans that you mention. We have 32 inch LED TVs in all the bedrooms and a 40 inch LED TV in the living room which is more than sufficient for our size of property.
Please be advised that this is a home stay and we provide clean and fresh towels, napkins and soap. Please do not compare us with 5 star properties where you may have stayed where you also pay 5 star prices.
This is our own home and we live there often and maintain it to the highest standard without any compromises on quality. Consistent good reviews from our guests are testimony to this.
We strongly object to your mentioning about the presence of CCTVs in common areas including the living and dining areas. You seem to be a well traveled person and it is hard to believe that you have not noticed CCTV cameras in restaurants, bars and hotel lobbies and passageways. The living and dining areas are considered as common areas. The installation of CCTV cameras is done in accordance with the local Police recommendations and there can be no compromise on this issue.
While you make reference to India where some business owners may be complacent once their going is great, just for your information, complacency can set in irrespective of nationality. You are incorrect in judging us and in putting everybody under the same category. For your kind information, we make substantial investment in maintaining our property shipshape and ensuring our guests leave our property happy and wanting to come back.

Best Regards,
Capt.Vikas Gokhale and our Dala Rooster Team

“Amazing for a family with young kids”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We were a group of 8 people, 4 adults and 4 kids. Daala Rooster is that dream place every child would enjoy. We could barely drag the kids out of the place as they only wanted to hang around the house and explore every nook and corner. The dining area is amazing over looking the valley. Would come back here any time!

“One nights stay is not enough at Dala Rooster”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We enjoyed 1 nights stay with family of 10 persons . The bungalow is well designed with interesting levels and a fantastic view of valley from living , dining room & upper floor bed rooms. The staff is well trained , very warm & caring . The food served was so delicious beyond expectation , that I can assure you that you will not feel like having it outside anywhere after having at Dala rooster. Tandoori dinner is a must try and served very professionally at the same time very homely. The interesting feature is the dining area in the gazebo , where you can play cards or have drinks or coffee. We were of different age groups and everyone enjoyed thoroughly ! The bungalow is well equipped with TV in every room , iron board , absolutely clean toilets. We would definately like to visit this place again and again. One nights stay is not enough here . You should stay at least for 2 nights. We also went to see their other property , Dala Mare which is equally good !

“Amazing experience... simply superb!”
Reviewed 15 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We were a group of 10 people with 6 kids of age between 3-4 years and were looking for a place that will be spacious, quiet and yet not very far from market/city area. Our stay at Dala Rooster met with all these requirements and gave many more memories to cherish! The bungalow is just perfect!!
Booking process with owner Captain Gokhale was very easy and we were provided with all the necessary information right from start. He was very kind and quick to respond to all our queries every time we had any.

After reaching bungalow we all were so pleased with ambiance and location. The huge glass window in the hall gives you a full view of the sky and valley together and you just don't want to move away from there. Every room and many walls of bungalow have paintings which are very beautiful and unique in their own way. The care taker Sibsankar is very modest and helpful. Food preparation was good and they catered to our requests happily. The barbeque and campfire were really something that each and everyone of us loved.

Overall a fantastic holiday experience at Dala Rooster, it would be a lovely place to relax indoors during monsoon..!!

I really look forward to staying at Dala Mare in near future after this experience!

“Top Class and Best place to visit”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We visited here in the second week of Nov with our family. Guys trust me it's one of the best place. This place is well maintained and its super clean rite from the ceiling,bathroom,beds and passage. The owner of this place is really good and soft spoken and we were amazed to see how this property is being maintained by him. The charm of dala rooster are both the caretaker's i.e. Das and Dilip. Trust me guys Das is a fabulous cook,ul not get the same food outside. Our family really enjoyed the delicious food. Dilip supports him very well, whether its cleaning or helping Das in cooking. Dala rooster you guys Rock!
Waiting to visit in Jan again...
