“Good Hotel for a Romantic Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2009

The hotel is ideal for a romantic getaway. It is perched on top of a hill above the Mall with an apple orchard behind it.

We reached there just at the end of an intense cold spell and the scenery was breathtaking. The only thing we did not like about the hotel was the fact that heating would be turned on only at specific times - and in the midst of a cold spell, that made a big difference.

The rooms are spacious and have great views!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2009

I visited this hotel during my honeymoon in Feb 2007. Took a flight from Delhi to Manali airport. It cost me around Rs2500 per ticket(air deccan). Taxi charges frm airport to apple country cost me another 1000Rs (fixed by Taxi union for Alto). You can save if you are willing to share with another couple.

The location of the hotel is great on the top of log hut area. You get a great view of snow peaked mountains of Manali. The hotel has nice lawn with swings as well.

The reception staff was ok. I think they need to learn to smile and be courteous.

The rooms are spacious and offer a great view of snow peaks (atleast from my rooms). The other set of rooms face the hotel lawn. The bathroom is decent size with a bathtub.

I made the hotel booking directly with hotel office at nashik and negotiated for 20% discount. Breakfast/Dinner and 1/2 day sight seeing was included in the package.

The best thing about the hotel was the food. It's a vegetarian hotel and food is just amazing. On one night the staff arranged for candle night dinner.

For sighseeing the best places for couples is rohtan pass, solang valley and the park behind hadimba temple.

The hotel is about 20 mins walk from hadimba temple and 30 mins to the mall road. A rickshaw from mall road to hotel take rs50. The mall road and temple are down hill from the hotel so you can enjoy the walk.

  • Liked — Food
  • Disliked — Hotel Staff should smile more

This is hotel basically for honeymooners. The hotel has good and excellent room service. The hotel has large and comfortable room especially designed for love making. Each room is so designed that couples can enjoy their stay plus enjoy their sexual pleasures without disturbance. As the hotel is on the peak and mobile don't work fine in the hotel.

  • Liked — Cozy Room and bed
  • Disliked — Only Vegeterian Food available no nonveg.

A perfect holiday destination. The hotel is situated few kms from the mall road in a quite and peaceful area with good views of snow clad mountain tops.

The rooms are good and clean, service excellent, food delicious.

Its bit expensive then other hotels in manali, but its definitely worth the money.

Only one problem which we face was their Pub was just beside our room, and we used to hear the sound whenever someone enters/exits the pub. However, it was not a major distraction.

Recommended for pleasant stay.

i would not ever recommend this hotel where the first feel is that the front desk forgets that you have booked a room and makes you wait for 1 hour before realizing it after your third reminder.. the rooms are very highly priced with almost no value in them.. they actually ration the heating in the rooms between fixed timings .. pathetic....and they should win the award for the coldest frint desk people in the world.... do go here to see what not to expect from hotel and its staff
