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.
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!
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 !
We had a wonderful time at Dala Rooster. Everything was just perfect! The view from the dining room and the gazebo was breathtaking! The staff really pampered us! We had delicious meals cooked in house! Very well maintained property and extremely polite and helpful staff.
Thank you Vikas, it was a wonderful experience.
We were looking at spending quality time with our guests and were able to do that and come back with wonderful memories!
An excellent experience! Beautiful view and a very comfortable stay! The food and hospitality was just great! Overall a superb experience!
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!
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...
