“Great Location in forest around”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

This is very cool place , one of my favourite place, I liked Ranikhet ..one of the nice location in North India , Uttarakahnd, gods land. this place is very cool and very heavenly. The Himalaya darshan from Ranikhet is very attractive. The temples around this place are very old and gives very reach religious feel.

Room Tip: Rooms are very good and away from main get are really good.

The old world charm remains intact. This hotel needs some serious upgrades particularly in beddings and curtains etc. But the service and the food continue to be superb. Stick to Indian cuisine. they have a fantastic chef. Don't experiment with Chinese please.

Room Tip: The largest family suite is a good way to spend a holiday (for two families) It has a very large dra...

We visited this property on 08 nov to 10 nov and had taken their grand family suite room .Since we were two families it was perfect for us . Well to begin with this suite was really grand and since this is an heritage property it was maintained perfectly. The rooms had room heaters and all modern bath fittings with 24 hrs hot and cold water. The food is also good but I think price of food was on higher side but since we were on map pacakage that did not matter to us.The surroundings were really good and lot of activites for kids also including badminton.To sum up west view has maintained its old charm and blended with modern times.The restaurent itself is very interesting with lots of antique crockery and showpieces.When in ranikhet it should be west view......only.

Room Tip: grand family siute rooms if ur are with two families.

We visited West View between the 12th and 15th of October, 2013. The Hotel has a vintage look and you should note that is is not a star Hotel. However the Manager Mr. D.S. Tanwal along with is team is extremely courteous. The view from the hotel is amazing. The staff helpful and the food is good. Most importantly what ever you demand would be attempted by the staff to the best of their ability and with a BIG smile. Your stay there would take you back to the Raj Era and if you enjoy Vintage stuff you are going to love this Hotel. However I would have preferred if the fire place was operational instad of room heaters which where placed in the room. No complaints though.

Room Tip: The Family Room would be good bigger groups

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....
