Khims Guest House
Ranked #8 of 36 Almora B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Heard favorably about Khims on my travels and really had to check it out. More than I expected. The place is set off the small mountain road and is blissfully quiet, almost serenely so, surrounded by whispering pine trees and with stunning views of the snow ranges to the North.
There are rooms and cottages, I have one of the latter with its little flower-edged terrace, a wooden floored bedroom, tiled bathroom and a kitchen with a large window view of the mountains. Father and son team run the guest house where there is a restaurant serving excellent Indian and Western food cooked by junior, largely vegetarian but you can get meat also. Father Khim, who apparently started this all up some 30 years ago, is now mainly the benign host.
Really loved it and extended my stay by an extra week.

Room Tip: Personally I think the cottages are best value.
