I went to Mukteshwar with my family and guests from Mumbai! Had a great time at the lodge. Your get a panoramic view of the himalayas from the garden. The rooms are comfortable and the food is just perfect! Mukteshwar and Somerset is definitely a better option than the over crowded Nainital!

Fantastic place to stay in. The new property.. Gahna resort is also a good place to stay in. .. good rooms and good food..lot of fruits to eat. His cook and his staff is most helpful. Most people are unaware of the rap,ing and rock climbing activities ahead of the temple premises.

We visited Mukteshwar in Oct 2012. It was a perfect time to go as flowers were in full bloom and the weather just right, on the colder side. We loved the resort the moment we entered. It has a big garden in the front which gives a good valley view and plenty of sunlight till 12-1 pm. The flowers bed... More

Mukhteshwar is one of lesser known destinations in Uttranchal but is spectacular with its wide 200 mile view of the Himalayan ranges starting from the Kedardome to the Annapurna. Somerset Lodge is a great place to stay with a super view of the hills and valley. Very nice people to take care of you and Raju Mehra has great knowledge... More

Somerset Lodge is actually what one of the reviewers described - "hidden gem". Located just about 2 kms from main Mukteshwar, Somerset Lodge is a beautiful resort with a quaint charm to it. It might be something to do with the fact that the house was originally made by the British, and so the architecture reflects it - 10 ft... More

Our stay at The Somerset Lodge, in Mukteshwar, has been so far the best in the hills. This 98 year old colonial cottage has within it to boast the charms of the colonial era. Built during the British era this beautiful lodge has everything to offer and not the slightest ambiance of a commercial hill station hotel. The rooms are... More

Somerset is a hidden gem in Mukteshwar. We stayed in the old house/cottage for 4 days. It is quite well maintained. If you are traveling with small kids or elderly family members it makes sense to stay at the old house (there is a 2 room cottage also, which i believe are recent additions as compared to the old house)....
