“Keep your expectations LOW but location in BRILLIANT!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

As a Sterling Holiday member we visited this resort as a Family...

Since v knew where to keep oir expectations level everything went well...

Hats off yo the dedicated staff and their commitment against all odds...

Service levels compensated a lot of negitives....like the state or condition of the rooms and bathrooms. ..

The infrastructure has deteriorated over time and think were in very shabby conditions. ...

I believe rooms are been renovated from lower levels..

Anyone not wanting to climb 300 steep steps each time you want to go from the room to the reception. ..BEWARE!

Ask for rooms on the levels which can be reached by 50-60 steps...

The recreation team were the BEST.... We all tried the flying-fox, Burma bridge, Valley crossing, Twin rope crossing, rappelling & mountain climbing. ..with the team of very friendly staff. .3 Cheers to them!

Room service and the chef was an excellent combination. ..

The grocery shop can be a bit more well stocked with basic items...

Would revist this place "against all odds" in winter for sure...as its tital VALUE FOR MONEY! !

The Resort is located on the ramps of the valley--with excellent views from every room---if lucky you may even catch rainbows shining brightly in the early mornings ! The food is expensive but good ( though there is a microwave oven and containers to cook/reheat minimal food in the room itself!). The place is nearly 2.5 kms from the Town , and there is no transport except very expensive taxis! The rooms are very well-made and maintained and the courtesy of service is very good too !

Certainly worth a short stay of 3-4 days---for the weather and the feel of the beautiful hill station!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the highest levels--or else you may have to climb nearly 100 or more steps everytim...

I remember my stay at Sterling Pine Hill with pain. Everything was ok sorts, rooms were nice, big with all amenities and good view but to reach mine I had to descend almost 100 steps or even more and then everytime I wanted to go somewhere it was really painful with non availability of lift in the property. Further, I also met bike accident while returning and broke my wrist.

I believe it was my bad luck but that's how I am going to remember this one for a very long time.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the highest level.

SterlingHolidays, Owner at Mussoorie - Dancing Leaves, A Sterling Holidays Resort, responded to this review, 30 April 2014
Dear Sir,

Greetings from Sterling Holidays! We are sad to hear about your unfortunate accident, and hope you are doing better now.

We thank you for your kind words about rooms and amenities at the resort.

We regret the inconvenience caused during your stay at Mussoorie – Pine Hill. We would also like to share with you that we are undertaking major renovation at our Mussoorie resort this year and are studying methods to facilitate easier navigation of the resort which has been constructed in a terraced fashion to afford the best views of Doon valley. We are very much looking at installing an elevator, subject to regulatory clearances.

At Sterling, we are committed to delivering exceptional holidays to our members and guest. We hope we can demonstrate this commitment on your next visit to one of our resorts.

Sincerely,
The Sterling Holidays Team

I went there with my family and i must stay we completely enjoyed our stay! Like all other sterling resorts, this resort is also quiet away from the main market and it can be difficult for many to find the resort for the first time! Resort offers an excellent view of dehradun valley!

We checked in there on 26th of december at around 6 pm and they welcomed us with a welcome drink! Being a member of sterling, we booked a studio room! There were two rooms inside that along with two attached bathrooms, a living area and a well equiped kitchen! Although the rooms were huge and amazing but it definitely need some renovation! The studio rooms doesn't have any view and its nearly 200 stairs away from reception! It took us 10 minutes to reach our room from the reception and so we tried to shift to guest room but they were full as it was peak season!

The resort has a travel desk where you can know all the places to see, a wonderful restaurant and an activity room where you can sit and play games!

The staff is extremely courteous and helpful and we were quiet impressed with the way they used to behave! We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to extend our stay by 2 more nights but unfortunately no rooms were available!

PROS-
> Extremely helpful staff
> Great view from the resort
> Huge rooms
> amazing food in the restaurant

CONS-
> Studio rooms need renovation ( the renovation work was going on and the staff told us that it will be completed in a year)
> you have to walk up and down every while to go to reception or your room which is extremely tiring.

Room Tip: go for guest rooms as they were renovated recently, offers great view and are near to holiday activi...

We visited Sterling Resorts Pine Hill Mussoorie in the third week of December 2013, the property is a bit old but it was value for money. It is little far away from the main Mall road and market but I have seen all Sterling properties away from the market so guests can relax and be away from the noise. This property needs maintenance and the amenities need to be properly worked our as per today's needs. The staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful. The dining area needs to be looked into at the earliest, it was shabby and not well maintained. The food was good and was well spread for the buffet.

Room Tip: Just for the elderly travellers the rooms to be booked close to the reception area to avoid steep cl...
