It is less than 10 minutes to the mall, which ensure that you would have something to do if you are not keen on staying in your room...Getting a cab or an auto for sightseeing is also extra convenient because of the location. I was here for 4 nights in March with my wife and my 2 year old daughter... More

Johnson's, on the way to Hadimba Devi Temple is an excellent place for European comfort food. Loved their wood fired pizza's - the vegetarian is even better than their chicken sausage one. Their ginger plum juice is good. Enjoy it all in the great outdoors. And they had the cleanest, most well maintained loo. But the food is expensive, and... More

The hotel area is great with a beautiful garden area. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with amenities that you would expect. The staff is courteous and hospitable and take great pains to explain the places to visit. Food quality is decent but is expensive. It is best suggested to eat at local eateries to savor the dhaba type food. Check-in... More

This place is freezing - the heater provided on request for the rooms are not sufficient, while windows do not fit back into frames snugly so cold air is constantly coming in. Rooms are worn looking. Bathroom was ok, had a bit of a smell but not too bad, but hot water ran out. The whole building is cold -... More
