“We were taken care very well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

We stayed here for our Honeymoon trip as it was recommended by one of my cousins who had stayed here earlier.We booked a Honeymoon room view and the view from the room was really great missed the snow tho at this time of the year.The service provided was excellent and full credit to the staff Sagar who did an excellent job of taking care of our needs and the food was excellent as well.
They organised a candle ligt dinner as well .Great place to visit Manali and great place to stay there is Holiday Cottages .

The Hotel has two properties in Manali .We stayed in the new property.Its located uphill 2 kms away from Mall Road facing the valley.The hotel has two and three Room cottages with drawing ,dining and kitchen facility.Though we didn't avail the kitchen facility.It also has deluxe rooms.The rooms are neat and property is well maintained.Staff is excellent and you get a personalised service.Roshan Thakur is the manager and is very helpful.Food is excellent .You feel at home .Being secluded from the mall road you can relax and spend nice quality time .

We stayed in "Holiday Cottages, Manali " for 3 days .
We were welcomed with open arms & the stay made us feel like home.
The owner and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home.

The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast , Dinner was excellent.

"HOLIDAY COTTAGES" is a place we would definitely come back to and recommend to our friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

I would just be one of the guest from the long list of admirers of Holiday Cottages Manali. Its a beautifully located property with very friendly staff and a very helpful management. They take there business very seriously and understand that hospitality business runs on personal rapport. Mr. Roshan(Managing Director) is always available for his guest and leaves no stone unturned to make them feel special.
The Hotel is very clean with spacious and comfortable rooms. The rooms overlooking the snow peak mountains make every minute of your stay worthwhile. All the important places are quite accessible from this point and if you haven't planned your sight-seeing in Manali, dont worry....the hotel has a few of the shelf packages or you can request them for a customized package and they will be more than glad to arrange for one.
Overall, I had a great time and I highly recommend this hotel to all of you visiting the beautiful Manali.

Cheers!! to the team of Holiday Cottages....
