We arrived after an exciting drive up the mountain from Dehradun! The access to the hotel from The Mall - the main retail thoroughfare in Mussoorie - is underwhelming as you turn down a side road that is only just wide enough to take a small car! But do not be put off as the views are worth it!
The hotel has great history to it and the staff make the hotel, being attentive and willing to help you enjoy your stay, advise on walks and sightseeing etc.
As this is a remote hillstation do not expect five star, slick service that you would expect in Delhi, Mumbai or other major cities. However, the team all try their best and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is comfortable.
The rooms are generously sized, with clean bathrooms and a large shower area.
Food was excellent and not at all expensive.
There is no alchohol available at the hotel, hence no cosy bar to sit in. However, they will arrange for beer or other alchoholic drinks to be bought locally and served to you at lunch/dinner.
If you enjoy your wine, then we would recommend you bring your own from Delhi or elsewhere as none of the liquor stores there stock it!
All in all, a great experience, very good value and worth the effort!
