“Good Location, Average Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

I went this year with my frenz & stayed there ... though I would say the location was definately good but the place itself was average in my opinion. It could have been better considering the price is not that cheap... we paid around 4000 for 2 small rooms for a day & in that price I expected better experience.

Anyhow good things to point out - Awesome view, fresh air, fresh prepared food, ample parking space, spacious lawn to stay in afternoon with cool breeze & sunshine (in summers).
Things could have been better - Avg rooms, old style decorum, no shuttle service etc. to mall road, no in house play services like pool / billiards or swimming pool, no Wifi.

Overall considering the location, I would have given an easy 4 provided if they can add a few services like Billiards room & Wifi service.

Room Tip: Definitely choose rooms with mountain view, either rooms on the top for just view or on base floor f...

i went there last year...the room was very good having feel of old time and very spacious..we can say this as vintage rooms..Hotel atmosphere was very freindly even the owner of the hotel behaviour is very nice...food quality was awesome...service staff was very co operative. They have ample parking space, They have huge lawn in front of rooms and this hotel located top of the road. There are good natural beauty which you can see from hotel itself.Situated right above Mall road in Mussoorie (on 5 minutes walking).

Situated right above Mall road in Mussoorie (on 5 minutes walking), ample parking, green lawn, open terrace sitting with valley view, bigger rooms, old structure...simply very good.
Rooms have both side view of front and back side valley. Rate also is cheaper for rooms. The only concern is about restaurant (since they've outsourced it) currently it lacks a little in service, it requires improvement.
Rest is very good.

Its just beautiful. It is peaceful. And you need not to go anywhere if you are staying at this Hotel. Such a big Hotel with best views. And the food was amazing. it takes around 10 minutes by foot to reach mall road, although the road is a bit steep, but once u return back to hotel, seeing the view from the hotel you will definitely get recharged. Thanks to Mr. Prabhat Vaish, owner of this heritage property. He has maintained this property so well. Its worth going thousand times.

went for a holiday in sep 2011 and was pleasantly surprised by the location and ambience of the place. the hotel is located only 10 mins from the mall and yet it is secluded and quite. it has an beautiful terrace with a nice view. the rooms are large and some of them are 2 room suites with accomodation for 4 and yet priced very nominally.
the best part of the stay was the home made food prepared by the kitchen staff. you can ask them to make food of your choice.they are extremely helpful .the rooms and the bathroom are decent and basic,nothing fancy. again its a value for money place with a good view.

Room Tip: the rooms on the first floor.

Went there last year, nice place to stay if you have a limited budget, food is above average, rooms are as good as a 3 star hotel, location and view from hotel is good, just that hotel is located on a hill and you have to walk all the way up which is very tiring.
