“Relaxing two days at West View!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

My wife and I stayed at West View during a short trip to Ranikhet in Aug'13. Though we have been to Ranikhet multiple times but we must say that this trip was one of the best due to excellent service offered by the hotel staff. West View is located conveniently in the heart of the Cantonment area surrounded by pine forests. The rooms are large and the staff is extremely hospitable. Food is great and prepared fresh as per your choice. We had some great conversations with the front desk manager Ishwar Bisht and played with a dog who stays at the property..All in all a great and wholesome experience and would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a relaxing short trip in the heart of nature with some great walks.....

Hi, we stayed there last year in April for 3 nights. The location is good on the road and rooms also give you feeling of a colonial property but food was not good here. We use to go everyday to chevron rosemount almost 2 kms walking from west view for the food which was very delicious. There are only two good properties here West view & Chevron rosemount...i would prefer staying at rosemount which also has very good location....in the midst of a jungle plus very good food.

Room Tip: incase staying here,,choose rooms on the back side which face the valley....

The hotel makes you live in the colonial era. With huge rooms and bathrooms you really feel living in the Bristish Raj. The staffs are very courteous and friendly. The lawn is beautiful and well maintained.The food is excellent and being served with great care. We really loved the dining place. Overall a great experience.

Food is excellent - variety in breakfast & dinner was amazing. We met the owner who was a good host. Rooms were good and good linen was provided.

Overall stay was excellent.

We went there for 3 nights in the month of March. When had booked a suite but we ended up taking a Luxury room as the room quality was the same and it had the garden outside. We were not so convinced about the place when we entered but the kind of personalized service they had provided us...its commendable. The view is not that great from the resort but it itself is in such a location that you'll never get bored there. You can sit outside in the garden...can do bonfire, can play Badminton or TT...can go for nature walks etc. We were just impressed by the service/hospitality. If you are going there...its a wonderful place to stay away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.... The only place to find peace!

Room Tip: I would suggest to go for a deluxe room o the ground floor as it has a garden outside. No point stay...

Driven by the out-of-date impression of West View in Ranikhet based on a visit 25 years ago as a student, I had stayed at this property in 2005-06

Regretably, I found that the smooth functioning of a tightly managed property had slipped , and slipped badly. The staff are still excellent, specially the long-duration employees who still retain the skills. The new boys are eager but clumsy. They are denied good support from the management and the property is scraping along. Not recommended unless you are very, very keen on this specific location

Added to this is the unkindness of nature and the incessant cutting of trees, which has rendered Ranikhet a disservice - it is still a town, and in the hills, but it is also uncomfortably warm.

The combination of the two had rendered this stay as a major let down. I must salute the efforts of a large contingent of staff who are old and loyal, who do give the best service possible under the circumstances. They have good intentions and good skills, and add the only redeeming feature to the property.
