Overall the place is ok, if you like to be on your own. The place is really far away from both other facilities and the town center. But the view is something and you really experience the nature at its best. Rooms are clean and the staff is nice. Dining room to improve, but the food was nice.

We were on a office trip and in a group of 15. Had good fun, enjoyed a nice trek from the hotel; played a lot in snow. The hotel provides a nice peaceful stay but corner rooms with valley view are nice and better.

First of all you will not able to locate this hotel.. this hotel is located on a mountain so the roads are also very small in width and lot of turns.. on the way to this hotel you can easily find people drinking and partying on roadside because this hotel is situated in a lonely place far from the city.....
