It has am sure maximum rooms in almora but even then it does not make up for bad service , drab food and haunting feeling . The good point about this hotel is- the entry to hotel is from the top floor which is quite cool.

I find this hotel really good in terms of accommodation, room rate and service. The hotel is located at the heart of the town. We travelled in a group and stayed in double bedded rooms at level 1. They provided clean bed linens and towels. Bathroom was clean. Most importantly there was hot water supply 24x7 which I liked the... More

We booked deluxe room for the long weekend stay in October from 2nd till 5th, but alas the deluxe room had nothing DELUXE quality in it, it was worse than a normal standard room, close to a budget hotel standard room, the bathroom was filthy-broken sink, bad walls, and room floor- stinking carpet in room, pathetically stinking bedsheets and blankets...

Though, the hotel is a big hotel, service is not so good. The property could have been well mentioned.I expected more clean hotel. The location is good and convenient. The location is the advantage of the hotel. We stayed for one night there.

Stayed for a night. Is right in one of the main streets of Almora. Offers a decent view on the other side. 1. Disabled people may have difficulty if they dont get a room on appropriate floor 2. warm and hospitable place 3. Has the right infrastructure but not being maintained well - e.g. the cover on bathroom taps in... More

We stopped here for our Lunch during our day trip in Almora. The hotel is very ideally located with the main market near by, and also overlooking the valley, the balcony for sunset point was also great. The service was prompt, and the food was basic but tastefully prepared. The place may be made more cheerful by redecorating the inetriors.

The luxury rooms have attached balcony which gives an amazing view of the hills. The rooms are fine. Food is good. Service is excellent. Staff is very cooperative. The owner... More

Stayed here on the way to Dunagiri and I found the place pretty good for the cost they are charging. The food was also very decent. In fact, we liked their aloo porothas. I would recommend this as a good budget hotel. What I did not like was lack of proper ventilation, the windows were shut permanently.
