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... More

A perfect stay for a couple of days with home like cooked food. The location and the view are the plus point for the resort. A group of Monkeys which stays in the jungle around the resort added to the excitement. A heritage property in a perfect location for a relaxing stay.
