Reviewed 31 March 2015

Excellent location! A perfect place to stay if you love the old world charm as it is a British colonial bungalow which is refurbished to make the stay comfortable. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous.
Food is fantastic. An elaborate menu which suits taste buds of a child and an adult.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the terrace garden are excellent. The view is fab!

I had visited the property in March 2015. The hotel has good parking space. Ample of open area to sit with friends in the evening. Couple of tracks for jungle trail/walk.

Pros:
Great Location - away from mall rd. hustle.
Good staff.

Cons
Average maintained.
In house kitchen would only be available for B/Fast. Guess they'll pace up in the season.

Room Tip: Select the rooms with the terrace in front

we booked this hotel on the basis of its rating on tripadvisor and it is really an amazing staying here.

Rooms were clean, good room service, and at all of the above very nice view of hill of mussoorie.

The groups of monkey were always present in the lawn area of the hotel which sometimes makes us afraid of.

I had visited the property in April 2014 and found it nice and cosy. Its not a big resort but very nicely structured. They have a big lawn which overlooks the valley and gives a nice view. We had taken a deluxe room. The room was not too big but had all the amenities. The service was also good. They also have a travel desk which can arrange a cab for you to lal tibba and nearby places which was also appropriately priced. The only thing I did not like was their layout for breakfast with just one long table. We did not like the idea of having breakfast with strangers. Also the breakfast spread is not much. Overall a nice place and very nice service.

i we3nt there with my family in oct 2014, and we were left with no choice as all others were booked. at the first view, the resort seemed nice. but on checking in, we found the rooms clean but needed maintenance. the main door needed two people to shut it close and three to open the lock!! the bathroom door was equally pathetic. the food id not available round the clock and u have to tell them 3-4 hrs in advance if u want to have lunch or dinner there..we reached there at two and they told us that lunch is not available. we settled for taste less snacks. then we thought of taking a nap,but were suddenly woken up by thumping noises,,only to find out that those were the monkeys playing on the tin roofs!!! it was really scary. we couldn't go and sit in the terrace because of the fear of monkeys. its away from the mall road, one needs to hire a taxi every time. the staff is ok. i wont recommend this to anyone...u can get many others with better facilities at a cheaper price.

Room Tip: go for ground floor room facing terrace.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time and effort for writing this review and giving us an opportunity to serve you better.
As our resort is located on a hillock spread over 6.5 acres of oak forest, sharing boundaries with the forest department. The forest is the natural habitat of the monkeys, we have to co-exist peacefully with the monkeys and the occasional langur too.
We have already included more items in our breakfast menu as per the suggestions. We prepare fresh ,seasonal organic food for our guests as a policy. We take orders from our guests
few hours beforehand, procure items and prepare them accordingly. We as a policy, do not keep any edible items in deep freezers.
The resort is a heritage property and has wooden doors which are prone to swelling as a result of changing humidity.
It has always been our endeavour to give all our esteemed guests a one of a kind experience and inputs would help us better this place.
