This is my lifetime best experience staying at Royal Kalinga Cottage. It is probably the best hotel in Manali. We (3 couple) went for trekking at Patalsu Peak and on return we have the stay at Royal Kalinga Cottage. As we will be late for check-in we informed the Hotel (Mr. Kumar, might be the Manager or Owner or Boss of the Hotel) accordingly. But when we reached the hotel at around 4.30 p.m. (totally exhausted), Mr. Kumar informed us that they arranged our stay somewhere else which is just "bagal main" takes 7-8 min in car. The hotelier provided a boy with us to guide to reach the destination. When we reach there we did not find any sigh board of the hotel there. Although as we were tired and exhausted we went into. After entering into the room we found that only one light is there other light points are for show, no water in the basin, door lock is broken, Water heater is not working properly, etc........ When we asked the boy who accompanied us to the hotel for that he replied that he don't know anything regarding the cottage the manager will came after 2hrs and he will solve all the problem. After that we get freshen and went to the mall which also cost Rs.300 per auto for one side. Before going to the mall we have informed by the boy to place the order for dinner from the menu card which also will be supplied from there original hotel and they have no arrangement of food in that place, and have to place the order there over phone to Mr. Kumar. We have called Mr. Kumar for the order and informed him the dishes. Now another twist, Mr. Kumar inform us that we have to pay extra for all the dishes i.e. Rs.450 for the menu printed on menu card at Rs. 315, Rs.120 for the menu printed on menu card at Rs.80 etc...... When we asked him why are you charging excess for all this he informed us that either you pay what he asked or find your food somewhere else. Then we cancelled the order and went to the mall. After returning from the mall we called Goibibo, Mr. Sourabh for the solution and informed him all the things in detail. He called Mr. Kumar for that and after that Mr. Kumar reached us with the solution that "As you have booked the hotel from Goibibo at discounted price you will not get any better service. You should not ask any question for this small issues. Just be satisfied with that you got." And Mr. Sourabh closed the issue as "hotel resolved the issue". We don't know how those problem are solved. So I suggest if you want to experience the best room, food and service you should visit Royal Kalinga cottage for the Royal experience.

Room Tip: If you want to suffer then you should book.

Location is good.
Food is home cooked & nice.
Rooms recently painted.
Staff is attentive. Especially the housekeeping staff is doing a great job.

Outdated Property
Furniture : Old & work out.
Room service : slow
Gyserer takes an hour to deliver only one bucket of hot water.
Plumbing fittings come in hand the moment you touch them.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floor are spacious.
