We arrived at the cottages in pouring rain (the last of the monsoon), but were immediately given a very warm welcome by Rajeev who manages the cottages on behalf of his parents. His good nature (and good English) put us at ease straight away. He even let us each have a glass of whiskey from a bottle he had just been given and we chatted for over an hour.

In the morning the weather had cleared and we were treated to stunning views across the Kullu Valley. The location of the cottages is great - only 30 mins to both Kullu and Manali, but in a quieter and less developed section of the valley. I would highly recommend an afternoon in Naggar, which is only 10km away.

The cottage itself was spacious, clean and comfortable. This is not a 5 star luxury hotel, but we had comfy chairs to relax in and our own kitchen and dining table to have dinner at (prepared by Rajeev's family twice at short notice). Free wifi in the cottage was an unexpected bonus - better than other more 'established' hotels during our trip. The cottage was cleaned every day and it was always made clear that if we needed anything, all we had to do was ask.

That brings me back to the service, which really is the best thing about Upadhyay. The family all live on site and everyone we met could not have been kinder to us or our driver. On our second day Rajeev gave us directions for a walk to a monastery, then invited us up to meet his brother at the family's orchard. There we were again made to feel welcome and were shown how the family's apple business works, a unique experience.

In summary, if you want to stay in the Kullu Valley but want to get away from Kullu or Manali, you would do well to look at Upadhyay. Comfy cottages and great service.

These cottages are nestled away from the hustle and bustle and my stay there is always Lovely. Rajeev is a very warm and friendly host. Location of the cottages is serene and the upkeep of the cottages is very very good. If you want to just relax and chill out then this is the place. I often go there for official and sometimes pleasure trips with family and this is the place that i always stay. One of the best part is their food as it tastes just like home food without the extra masala's that normally most of the hotels add in food. I advise anyone to go and stay there as you and your family will be taken care of by the host i.e Rajeev. So go there, have Fun and completely relax.

Rajeev is a great host who can make you feel welcome. His staff is good and attentive. The cottages are clean and neat. Lovely view of mountains. Cottage set in greenery of fruit trees. Ideal for families looking for relaxing holiday in the midst of nature. Close to kullu naggar and manali for day trips.

Amazing to see sunshine morning from the lovely situated Upadyayjis Cottage, we checked in for only 2 days with my family and 2 pets. we were escorted by Mr Rajeev from the main road to the cottage which was hardly few meters from the main road. It was a pleasant stay there and hospitality provided was unforgettable...Thanks and many thanks

Lovely place, centrally located between Kullu and Manali, Beautiful views of snow clad Mountains and very homely place. Hosts were too good and complete family was very warm and loving. Good food, soups were superb. The place has such a tranquil feel to it. Katrain is a small village and this place is atop the village. Both brothers were very helpful and helped us to plan our outings. Since we don't like living in typical hotels and that too in crowded streets of Manali, this place was perfect. Rooms are clean and are maintained properly. We wish to visit once again when we plan visit to Leh/Spiti and am sure Rajeev will arrange the trip for us. Over all a great experience for people who wants to run away from the cities.
