“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

My expectations were belied. Except for the location which gave outstanding views of the Panchachuli Range, everything else was average.

The rooms are spacious but are in need of a facelift - strange for a hotel which is perhaps less than 2 years old. The furniture looks cheap, the doors have cracks through which cold air was coming in, there are no carpets & the curtains are too light to prevent the cold. The only thing good about the rooms are the windows - a view of the Himalayas through which gives the feeling that the mighty Panchuchli is a stone's throw away. You can see it lying down on the bed.

When I browsed through the website prior to the visit it claimed uninterrupted back up power. When we arrived we were told that back up power is only provided between 5pm to 11pm & that during that period no heater or hot water supply can be provided. When I drew the attention of the hotel management to the information given in the website, the contents of the website were promptly amended !

Foe a place like Munsiyari, especially in winter when temperatures go below the freezing point & it is snowing outside, this can be an ordeal. A filament type of room heater was provided which gave the room more illumination than warmth. It was only after a show of displeasure that the hotel management relented a bit & allowed us to use the heater with back up power - though only upto 11pm. To add fuel to the fire (or may be ice to an icecream), there was a power outage for over 24 hours during our stay.

The food was ordinary - nothing much to write home about. The single bearer - a really hard working guy tried his best to satisfy all guests. Obviously that was grossly insufficient. The management staff was rude initially but changed after the show of displeasure.

Besides the room, the surroundings also seemed to need a facelift. There is much room for improvement - landscaping the garden, raising the boundary on the road side to provide privacy etc. which I was assured were in their plans.

Despite all this the hotel management claimed that they were still the best in business in Munsiyari - may they are - but they are far from being a memorable place to write home about

Room Tip: Room No 109 is perhaps the best as it has windows on two adjacent walls of the room

This Hotel is the best place to stay at Munsiary, We stayed two nights here in May2013 and it was a memorable one. The Hotel is brand new with the breathtaking view of Panchachulli Range of Kumaon Himalaya and if you visit munsiary staying at Milam Inn is must. Food and rooms are also excellent. I greatly appreciate the hotel owner gesture and Service is also excellent.

Thank you Milam Inn for making my Munsiary trip a memorable one.

We reached Munsyari in the evening. One of our contacts had already spoken to Milam Inn staff and had informed that we would be coming. This guy, Mr Bachhan (Bachhan Saab, as I used to call him) was waiting for us. He had called us several times but due to network issues he was not able to reach us. We got the Room.112. Clean room. Clean washroom. We ordered dinner. Gopal was our service boy. Very polite and cordial. Food was also good. The best thing happened when I woke up in the morning. We had removed the curtains of the window to get a clear view and when I woke up, I was like awwwwwgh.....Right outside the window, straight up, were the snow capped mountains, Panchachuli Peaks. Excellent view. It was bright and sunny. Bachhan Saab is a nice guy to talk to. I would recommend this place for a stay with family and otherwise also.

The first hotel you will met entering Munsiyari is Hotel Milam Inn. We tracked this hotel in Tripadvisor. Visited Munsiyari in the 3rd week of November. Weather was very clear. This hotel is placed in such a lovely position that you will get the best view of Panchachulli and Rajarambha sitting in your bed. The sunset view is majestic. We booked Room No, 101 & 102. Rooms are clean, spacious and offer best view of The Himalaya. The hotel manager, Mr. Bacchan and room service boy, Mr. Gopal are very cooperative. The food is also very good and the rate is standard too. And if you are a dog-lover, two labs (Zibrani & Carlos) of the hotel owner and a spitz (Chote) will help you to pass your time.

Room Tip: Go for Room No. 101 & 102.

I have booked this hotel through a travel agent of uttarakhand and we visited somewhere around 1st week of November .first of all which I deeply feel is that one must include munshiyari in the package of nainital coz its such a beautiful place .while this hotel is a brand new hotel with a mind boggling view of the Himalaya .Rooms are spacious with all modern amenities .Hot water is 24 x 7 .food quality is very nice .One must choose this hotel at munshiyari .

This hotel is located just outside the main town in the most idyllic location offering the best view. You can sit in your private balcony and view Panchachulli unobstructed throughout in different shades as the sun rises and sets in. If you go in a full moon night the clear view of the snow capped peaks is simply out of the world. Rooms in the first floor are nice with private balcony, large single glass window pane offering a clear view of Panchachulli from bed. Rooms do not have any elements of luxury but are clean and comfortable with necessary amenities. Bathrooms are spacious and clean but without toiletries. All the staff are extremely courteous and eager to serve the guests anytime with a smile. Service is good and prompt but a bit unorganised . There is scope of improvement in quality of cushions and pillows. Food is available downstairs and is reasonably ok. Overall quite a good experience. Try to stay in 109 which is a corner room on right side and arguably the best room. Also, you have a wi fi in the hotel though reception is poor in some parts .
