Apart from what others have already written about this nice hotel, here are some more things worth mentioning -- I found that the room amenities, the overall ambience at Kapil was so very well thought of. Why? Consider the bathroom - There was a "sealed" shower-cap in bathroom. Perfect if you don't want to wet your hair. We didn't get... More

Hotel Service is really good we had early check in at hotel so they have provided a temporary room for refreshment. Staff is really helpful and very professional in their job. Food is also really good no need to go in restaurants for lunch/dinner they will provide delicious food at very reasonable price.

The location is close to Lakkar bazaar and around 20 mins drive from the railway station. The 5 min Uphill walk could be tough if you are with kids or senior citizens , they provide complimentary drop till the Lakkar bazaar stairs which is realy useful. How ever, there is no fun of staying in the mountains if you would... More
