Perfectly lovely if you don't mind things being a little rough round the edges. Staff were lovely, food was average (clearly aimed at a bland tourist market) and basic rooms. We had two rooms on the 3rd floor, which had awesome views but are really quite basic. The extra bed for my son was just a very basic futon type... More

This property is for people who love to be in natural surroundings. No highly recommended for old people who cannot climb stairs. The cafe was closed so we had to get food from outside. The rooms and linen were clean and nice. There is no intercom to connect to the reception. So one has to walk a bit across the... More

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very delicious. The views are breathtaking. It's in a great location and I only have good things to say about Chrissies. I would definitely stay there again. It was our favorite place in India. A must stay!!!

I came to Kumily alone after travelling for one month together with a friend. After a long and tiring busride I reached the hotel and I experienced a very hearty welcome which helped me to feel comfortable immediately. The complete staff was friendly and they tried to help with everything I asked for. The rooms were clean with nice little... More

Nice experience different from the usual hotels. But i thought they could have provided some parking and at night there was no light in front of the hotel. The staffs were well mannered and courteous.

We can only concur with all the other reviews - just the best. Having been on the road for a few days cycling across India it was just a lovely place to relax and also to have the benefit of having the additional choice of Indian and Italian food, both excellent. The whole hotel was clean, quite and is set... More

This was my first time in india and I can honestly say that I could not have wished to stay at a nicer hotel. All the staff are very nice people and nothing is too much trouble. The food and drinks are excellent. There is plenty of exotic wildlife and the famous massage and wildlife park are just a stones... More

The moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, the manager and all the staff. Our room was on the third floor and our bags were cheerfully taken up all the flights of stairs. That is a downside, lots of stairs - I wouldn't recommend if stairs are a problem. The room is very basic too.
