“Very Good Hotel”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We stayed for one night only and the experience was very good. Spacious room, great food and good service. The view from the balcony was awesome. The owner/manager Mr Verma is a great guy and he makes sure that his guests are comfortable. Over all - very good value for money.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the room looking at the hills i.e. back side of the property.

I stayed in the hotel with my family for 3 nights. It was good experience during my stay. Room was very specious and there was a nice panoramic view of valley from the window. Owner of the hotel mr. Verma was personally available to take care everything. Food was also very good. Will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: We were in room 101 which was very specious.

I & my family stayed in the rooms no. 302,303,304.The view from the balcony was great.The food was awesome & freshly prepared everytime. Location of the hotel is good. The owner Mr. Verma personally look after the arrangements. We enjoyed our vacation here at the hotel. Chail is very good location for nature lovers to visit atleast once.

Visited Chail from 22/6/14 to 24/6/14. Stayed at Hotel Ekant with my 13 more family members. Mr. Devender Verma is a nice person. But besides him there is no manager to look after the hotel guests. Many times there is no one on reception.
The package described to the agent was not properly attended by the Hotel. We have to told them again and again for the meals according to our package. The rooms are spacious and good. But it does not have mosquito mash on windows. The food quality was not too good as i reviewed from the reviews at tripadvisor site. The service was very lazy. One day they took 90 minutes to serve evening tea with snacks.

Room Tip: room no. 402, 302 are bigger than other super deluxe rooms. The valley view is good from room no. 30...

Dear Sir,

Thank you for writing you review, we are thankful to you for writing a positive feedback regarding Chail. Although, we are thankful to you for rating us an average hotel, we tried our level best to serve you better as we do it for every guest.

First time in this season we get a review stating that our food quality is not good, most of our reviews are on our food quality but we are sorry if you not like our food.

Moreover, you have made a booking on MAP package and you were expecting every thing in that package where as it includes only breakfast and dinner and that has been provided to you. Request you to make clear from agent that what is all included in your package before booking next time. Iam surprised to hear from you that you do not like our food as during stay you have not brought this thing to my notice, even at the time of check out you said your stay was comfortable and nice when you were asking me for making your snacks bill complimentary.

Overall I would like to thankyou for your stay with us and would like to welcome you again at Hotel Ekant.

Thanks and Regards,
Devender Verma

We were looking for accommodation, thought will finalize our hill station accordingly, we started making calls here and there & getting rude half finished answers all across, finally happen to talk with Mr. Vishal here who not only helped us personally in getting the required accommodation arranged but was kind enough in responding on confirmation. Rooms , Staff ( Aman), food all was magnificent. We were lucky enough to beat scorching heat of Delhi with heavy rainfall at Chail same evening.. a different experience altogether, my kids, wife & me all enjoyed it very much.
Owner Mr. Verma has guided us about Kala Maata Mandir ( at the top of hill...bit adventurous driving ), temple visit was one of its kind as one cannot even imagine such nicely built temple on such remote hill.It was all fun & very nice & homely stay from 14th June to 16th June. Top of it, we forgot some of our belongings in our room & then Mr. Vishal has assured not to worry & ensured all possible ways to make it reach here in Delhi without any hassle....thanks to all staff & management for making it a memorable trip..we would plan to have next trip in winters for sure

Room Tip: Go with valley facing rooms .. view from there is fantabulous

The hotel rooms were dirty and there were shoe marks on the wall... The room smelled of cigar rtes . and mind you this is luxury suite i m talking about... The windows didn't have mosquito mesh so you can't keep the window open else , insects find there way in.... The hotel staff goes to rest most of the time... i arrived tired and i was told the staff is on rest and you will get everything by five ... imagine what i could do with my kids.. It megan to rain and boom no electricity ... after waking up staff from there rest, who never cared about our rest.... said that they have power backup but boss has said that it should be used only at night.... so no electricity in the luxury suite my two kids got bored to death... the tV was there in both rooms but none of them functioned.... If its raining outside what can you do with kids ? they want to watch TV but here we have no electricity and no TV...

I got fed up and check out though i had booked for three nights .... left the hotel and booked Tarika Resort an awesome place to be... I lost all my money on Ekant but at least i didn't spoil my children's vacation....

Families be careful

Dear Mr. Atul,

First of all I would like to thank you for writing your feedback regarding us, I personally feeling upset after reading your review, these kind of things never happned in our Hotel so far, we are extreamly sorry for what has happned with you in a limited stay with us.

Secondly, this is a peak season time and hotel is back to back full, rooms are occupied by different personalities every day, we can not stop anyone smoking inside the room, prior to your check in, room occupied by a guest who was lighting one from the preceding one.

Lastly, I would like to tell you that we will look after the things you mentioned in your review and will be taken care off. We would like to welcome you once at Hotel Ekant next time you visit chail and would like to serve you the best of our services. Hope to see you again.

Thanks and Regards,
Devender Verma

A perfect place to stay with valley view from rooms, thick forest cover areas all round the hotel makes the place worth visiting. The sight of Deers visiting the tomato farming area just below the balconies of this hotel makes the stay all the more exciting. A walk after the dinner in the dark and dense forest area near the hotel reminds the most adventureous of bollywood movie scenes.The hospitility of the staff makes one feel special with Mr. Verma and Vishal acting as the perfect host. One can't imagine to get such a tasty food even in the so called famous restaurants of Delhi. I think the success of this Hotel lies in the fact that the owner of the Hotel Mr Verma is personally present in the hotel till late hours, personally supervising the things.
Surely visit the hotel again.

Room Tip: Super deluxe Room nos 110 and 111 for couples.For families having more than six members, the family...

Lord Kitchner just happened to be the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army at that time. ... more   less
