“Best place to stay at manali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

One of the best and cosiest places i have been to,excellent view of the mountains and rivers and the staff is also very friendly and helpful,especially the manager Mr.Manu Seth who also organised a brilliant trek for us. Pause@Manali is like a home away from home.

Room Tip: Any room makes sure that you wake up to a fantastic view

I had one of the finest experiences of all my Hotel stays accross the country at Pause Manali on my 2 days stay on 18th and 19th April 2013 and the Hotel is an excellent property located on the Top most of Manali but the Managment of the Operation in Charge Mr Manu Sheth (an Born Hotelier of Patila with Hotel Managment Degree from Australia and an VIvid Trekker accross India )and an Person whoes Operations and Service provisions are JUST PAR EXCELLENCE, I have travelled in India and Abroad but never have found such an Excellent and Able Operation In charge like Mr Manu Sheth and was completely bowled over by the hospitablity and comfort that was ensured by Manu and his Team, Well furnished Clean Rooms, Homely Food and Guidance by Manu made me and my Family exprience with Complete satisfaction and Delight the Beauty of Manali and all the nearby places Solan Valley ,Snow Point, Old Manali Village , Popular Cafes Nr Hadima Temple and Visisth,Kulu Shopping points and Manikaran which we covered by Road on the Excellent Guidance provided by Mr Manu Sheth and even to the Extent if you wander from your route and GPS is not available just Call Manu he will provide the Guidance to the extent escort is sent to guide you back to the Hotel from the Lost route in Manali if in case, I would say to Make Manali Memorable just Book your Rooms with Pause and forget everything else as they really take Great care of you

Room Tip: Choose the Room Facing the Entrance has excellent View

Recenty stayed with 6 other friends..... Every time I have been a guest of Manu Seth (owner of Pause), he raises the bar of hospitality.... Had a great time on the fantastic trek & camp organized to Malana village... Manu's got a great taste & has again made a property that offers superb views of snow clad himalayas & away from the mela-like feel of Manali.... Looking forward to many more holidays with Manu....

Room Tip: Rooms on top floor front side offer great views of snow clad himalayas

What a hidden gem! Possibly one of the best hotels in Manali, The best part about the hotel is its location - nothing beats the joy of waking up in the early morning and watch the snow clad mountains.

It has lots of wood, a rustic ambiance and innate warmth about it. The rooms are massive (we stayed in 302 with a private balcony and the bed was Big enough for 3 people to sleep comfortably). The rooms were having LCD TV with a satellite connection. I did a long research on various sites to select a place for our stay in Manali and finally had selected Hotel Pause. I must say that we spent a really good time there starting from the very first moment we entered the property to when we checked out! Humble but efficient management, a very cordial and cooperative staff team in place.

The hotel had an awesome variety in terms of food and the food served was excellent and fresh. It was truly home cooked food every night and we really enjoyed each and every dish – there were varieties during the Breakfast and dinner every time you sit in the Dinning Table.

We loved every minute of our stay there last week. Right from organizing the Toyota Etios Cab from Delhi Airport, through the seamless check-in process, up to the departure, we had a wonderful stay.

The best part - the staff! We are used to friendly staff in Indian hotels, but The Hotel Pause surprised me with its keen eye, friendly disposition and positive attitude and genuine warmth.All credit goes to the Owner Manu and Rohit who made our stay memorable.

Overall, a wonderful experience. My daughter Apeksha loved the place.

Pause is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to our friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant Mr. Manu and Rohit t!!!

I was in manali from April 15 till April 18th and I am glad that I made Pause@Manali my stay , which I found through tripadviser.
One would love the property the moment they enter into it and your love would keep growing the time you step into the balcony to take in the ample view of snowy peaks and the valley ahead.
Service is prompt and you are served dinner in a very personalized manner.
Quality / Variety of food is ok and that is the sole reason I am not giving 5 stars to this one. Adding a menu of weekly food choice with price would definitely fill this gap.
Rohit played the role a vital role in me choosing this property. Very diligent in keeping up with the guests through his follow ups. Really impressed with his zeal of customer service.
I would definitely recommend this to others who are interested in staying away from hustle and bustle of the city life and want to enjoy their stay in the lap of nature.

Room Tip: As such all the valley facing rooms are good but I would suggest 301 and 302.

Dear Guest,

We are happy you choose Pause@manali for your stay and enjoyed yourself. It was a pleasure to have you with us. As regards to food, we try to keep the choise to minimum so that the quality is maintained, we make all food fresh and do not prefer cooking on pre-cooked curries.

We will certainly take your suggestion and try to include some more finger foods and more variety. Thank you for leaving your valuable feedback for us.

We had a fantastic stay at Pause. Manu the hotel manager did an absolutely superb job of looking after us whilst at the hotel and also arranged our transport from Amritsar to Manali and then onwards to Shimla. The rooms were immaculate, clean bedding, towels etc. Delicious evening meal served on our own private balcony. Good breakfast served with tea and coffee. You can walk into the town down the hill about 30 minutes or get a rickshaw for 100 rupees or Manu will arrange a taxi into Manali itself for 300 rupees. The only downside was that they could have done with tea and coffee facilities in the room but apart from that a fantastic stay with spectacular views over the Himalayan snow capped mountains. Many thanks to Manu and his wonderful stay for a fantastic stay.
