We had a pleasant stay here for 3 nights. Hospitality was good from all the Staff, especially Mr.Rana (Service Manager) took great care of us & made us feel really comfortable during our stay. While everything was fine, Staff at the restaurant was a bit inactive/ too slow.

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.
