somebody referred us to stay at banon this time as we could not find a place at johnsons cottage. the rooms are spacious and the staff is helpful and friendly, the in room service is also decent. the staff can help you with your tour planning and suggest things to do and places to visit.
i stayed for 6 nights and the price was very decent considering it was peak season and rohtang had just opened for public.
over all a good place to stay in manali.
