I stayed here for 6 weeks while on a study abroad trip and felt very much at home. The staff is great, the rooms are nice, and the views are amazing. If you are traveling to this part of India I highly recommend staying here.

‘Welcome Home’ are the words that stayed with me. Sunita the hostess with the mostess…said those words when we arrived and our experience was just that ….of a warm welcoming home. Clearly a great choice for young families like us. Welcoming breakfasts, cozy and scenic sit-outs, talking to guests, great walking trails and a play area for the little ones.... More

Whether you are escaping the heat of Delhi, studying Hindi at the Landour Language School, or just traveling through the beautiful mountains, this is an oasis with everything you need for comfort and entertainment. Great home cooked meals, new and interesting conversations, and Sunita and her staff are always helpful. I highly recommend.
