“"Unchi dukan phike pakwan"; A has-been”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Splendid location, above average infrastructure, poor service and a below par experience. The hotel is a has-been, resting on it's past glory and mired in inertia. Bland, taste less, unimaginative breakfast served in chipped/unclean crockery which remained the same in spite of being regularly pointed out and service staff that is lost and almost naive are some of the major turnoffs. In short it was a humongous disappointment. Won't appeal to a discerning traveler/customer.
Location wise one of the best locations in Manali, bang on the highway to Manali well short of the hustle and bustle of the town. On the banks of Beas with breathtaking view of snow covered mountains and lovely open spaces for the river view rooms.

We have stayed in this hotel for 03 nights from 06 March - 09 March '12 and must say the hotel was excellent in all aspect... We were accommodated in river view room and it had a breathtaking view.. the flowing river, snow capped mountain behind the river and the sun rising it was just picture perfect. Welcome drink was refreshing, food was excellent... Will visit it again for sure

we first had a problem with checking in (waiting for the receptionist to retrieve our booking information), then we had a problem with the bathroom equipment and were awaiting for the service guy to come over. at this point i will restraint from commenting on the quality of bed linen and room furniture, as it will probably be biased after having had bad experience starting from the first minutes in the hotel. i wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone who has little patience...

We stayed for 3 nights with the family. Quite an average hotel. Poor service, Restaurant is like a canteen, no atmosphere. Not a place for international tourists. Most staff don't speak English. Concierge pretty useless, giving wrong information. Not a very friendly place.
