I travelled with a bunch if my friends in the month of September'14 to this retreat as per the trip adviser ranking and reviews. Rooms are terrible and small. We checked in to a smelly and dingy deluxe room and requested for a change immediately. The reception person argued with us that the room was just cleaned that is why... More

All our travel arrangements, reservations and bookings were done by the incredibly efficient & good folks @ Mercury Himalayan Explorations (www.mhe.co.in). Under the able guidance of Akshay, Dilshad and Mrs. Mridula Kumar, Anuj Sharma handled all the details of our travel.

I stayed there with my family in October. It was a memorable stay. Well maintained lawns to roam around or to have a cup of tea outside whenever you feel like. That is much better compared to hotels where you are just confined to your room. Both Amruta and Neeru are great assets to the place as you will always... More

We had almost 125 guests stay with us in the month of June but received no complaints whatsoever. After seeing this review, we connected with all the larger groups of... More

We had an extremely relaxing and invigorating time at Bull's Retreat. The hotel was easily accessible and the premises were beautifully maintained and very peaceful and serene. On our first day, we just sat under the trees and unwound from our hectic schedules with delicious masala chai and snacks served unobtrusively. Early next morning we awoke to melodious chirping birds,... More

Bull's Retreat is an excellent place for group holiday. We stayed for 2 days and one night. It has good & clean room, open lawns, good food, excellent services by the staff. Above all, is has an excellent conference hall for conducting seminar for over 45 people in a group like ours.
