We stayed at this property for 4 nights in 3rd week of June. On arriving, the hotel gave us a free upgrade from Super Deluxe room to a Maharaja suite. Many thanks to the Hotel Management for that. The Hotel is located a bit away from the main mall road, but that is not a problem at all. The Hotel... More

Excellent Service, a good place but little away from town center, old manali and bus station. This is an excellent location for people who are travelling with family. Nice Indian lunch and dinner with excellent service but people who want to enjoy excellent cafes of old manali, location is a dampner

Stayed from 23-25 June ...Nice hotel and really well maintained ...Location seems a bit away from main mall road and is up the hill , which might suit people who want to stay in peace. It will be great if you have you own conveyance if you want to make frequent trips down to the main road. Food was excellent... More

Tucked away behind several other establishments inside a local area, this joint offers value for money. Nice interiors and well maintained. The room options vary, but the rooms with a balcony are to be preferred for unobstructed snow capped mountain view in the distance. Restaurant services are good and food is OK. Ample parking space. Manali town centre is not... More

We were 2 girls traveling together and stayed in deluxe room. The hotel was spic n' span and ideally located away from the city crowd with great views-at the same time safe and comfortable too. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. Special thanks to Mr. Roshan Thakur who helped us plan our entire trip and even offered complimentary services... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Holiday Resorts and Cottages is one the best brand in Manali offering a complete holiday experience. TheHoliday Resorts and Cottages is managed by experienced professionals who have more than 18 years of experience in tourism and hospitality services.Holiday Cottages was started as a home stay venture by Mr. M.C Thakur, a horticulturist and a progressive farmer. Seeing that Manali had suddenly become a hot tourist spot, he built the first 'Holiday Cottage' with three bed rooms in the year 1994. The cottage used to be rented out to families for months together who would prefer their own cooks.He subsequently built another cottage in year 2000 with three more rooms and expanded further with another cottage with four bed rooms in the year 2005.By the year 2005 Manali was well established name as round the year preferred holiday destination in the Indian Himalayas. A generational change was also happening in the 'Holiday Cottages' family and Roshan Thakur, younger brother of Mr. M.C Thakur was getting trained in the hospitality sector in some of the best hotel chains in Northern India.Mr M.C Thakur, after interacting with guests had realised that hospitality was more than offering boarding and lodging. Being a progressive farmer himself he started grooming his younger brother in the hospitality industry. Roshan Thakur started learning the basics of hospitality at Asia Group of Hotels at their resort at Timber Trail in Parwanoo and later at Timber Trail in Manali where he worked for five years.After working with Asia Group of Hotels, he enrolled with Himachal Pradesh University at Shimla to finish his Master's in Business Administration (MBA) and passed out in year 2000.Once completing his education, he was picked up by Choice Group of Hotels who had then started a new property with Quality Inn brand in Manali. Roshan Thakur worked for three years with Quality Inn Manali and honed his skills in the hospitality industry before formally joining the 'Holiday Cottages' family. ... more   less
