“Walk in the Clouds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We arrived at the Claridges post lunch on a Friday afternoon and immediately set off to explore the property and its vicinity. Very close to the exit near the playing area...we discovered a small bylane in the hills....lush greenery....as good as being in the Black Forest! A monkey with a small baby...crickets singing and misty environ.....loved it! I literally felt like we were walking in the clouds...
The room was very nice and spacious...huge bathroom with shower, luxurious changing room....5 Star quality!
There is a reading room with a limited number of books, mostly coffee table ones....
But the hotel has some breathtaking views....has a very nice sit out area outside the restaurant...perfect for a romantic holiday!
The breakfast was very basic but given the other perks we did not miss much. We were only too content to enjoy the peaceful, lush green surroundings.

The Nabha Palace is a classic example of the stringent standards of the Oberoi chain of hotels. It combines comfort with class, and is a beautifully laid out property in the Uttrakhand hills. A long winding detour from the Dehradun-Mussoorie highway takes you deep into the woods and the Nabha Palace is tucked away within these woods.

The original property of the royal family of Nabha, Punjab- the hotel is like a home away from home. Excellently managed by the GM- Mr. Chugh, the resort provides excellent cuisine with buffet dinner laid out in the dining hall and served piping hot by the excellent staff. The benches in the terraced garben provide the ideal vantage point for a leisurely drink, with a breathtaking view of the mighty Himalayas. The blinking lights of Mussoorie town stparkle like a million stars after dusk..and the whole aura and ambience of the place has to be experienced to be believed.

I strongly recommend a visit here.

Room Tip: The suites facing outside are quiter and more private.

We visited this property last week.
First impressions were good - quiet, green and away from the noisy town and tucked away in the midst of a pine forest.
The rooms are recently refurbished with excellent amenities. Though on first impressions, I did feel that the housekeeping department could do a better job.
Food was good. The staff was courteous and took pains to ensure that we served food based on our liking and dietary preferences. I would rate the staff very highly on this parameter.
The property itself is a colonial British bungalow, which was bought by the royal family of Nabha and now converted into a hotel. The management has done a decent job in maintaining the old world charm of the place, which is quite evident in the lobby, the bar and the restaurant.
While the property rates highly on almost all counts, I did feel that the tariff was a bit high.
Overall, a great place!

It was a Reverberant, Vivacious, Heart Throbbing trip. I liked the beauty of Mussoorie in winters. It was initial days of winters and was very chilly, but no snowfall at my visit to the place and the hotel. I liked the beauty of hills that was spell bound & I admire my heart's out. Jai Hind...

Room Tip: "Corner suites are large and sunny"

I visited the Claridges Nabha Residence with my family on 24 march. We had made our booking online through the travel site Antilog Vacations after getting to know abt their good services. They had good rates & trip was planned to every minute detail and literally we ended up having a gala time .

It is a very scenic resort located on the Airfield Barlowganj Road amidst greenery all around. It is nicely secluded from the commotion prevalent in the heart of the city. There is a thick forest outlining the resort and it gives a very niche look to the hotel. The rooms are quite lavish and spacious at around 60 square yards and are bordered with French windows, with a picturesque view through them.

The door also opens into a lawn and you are in for a special treat if you are a nature lover. The bathroom though had narrow doors though and I shuddered to think what would have happened had I brought older people as the ywould have found it highly impossible. There was wi-fi connection available in the rooms but the speed was pathetic and they should look for better options to increase the bandwidth.

The food was light but with many choices. The breakfast in particular was of princely proportions and we ended up having a very light lunch because the heavy breakfast we had almost all the days.

However I really missed a swimming pool for as we would have loved the same. All in all I would say that the Claridges is a niche hotel situated in a beautiful location but it is slightly over priced compared to the facilities it provides. Hence it a 50-50 pick if u want to visit there.

Enrolling via an agent is a good option as they arrange for everything at cheap rates so that you don’t have to worry.We really had a superb time here

had never liked mussoorie coz of the crowds n all .. But this hotel had been on the wish list for quiet some time,so was compelled to visit mussoorie.
N our visit to mussoorie was made a real memorable one coz of the hotel only!
We had initially booked the duplex room but since the rains n renovation had left some dampness in the room v made a request for a change ...which was a blessing in disguise!
Our request was promptly taken care of and we got the room in the core area of the hotel.the room was excellent n the bathtub was an added bonus!
The hotel was the palace of the erstwhile ruler of nabha and the whole structure having just 1 level only is a pleasent sight for the eyes especially after seeing too many monstrous structures in the hills all around.and the hotel has done rather well in keeping the original shape and structure more or less intact.the huge corridor and lawns beyond the dining hall are reminiscent of the raj era.
Do sit on the porch in the evening and just see the hotel give that magical look when the lights come on.its not to b missed!
Service was more or less excellent with the food being the only let down from the hotel.
Rest of the stuff was impeccable n didn't mind staying in the hotel only coz of the rains!
The location is the best part of the hotel being slightly on the outskirts of mussoorie .. Away from the mad rush of the mall n its surroundings.
We had a free night stay .. Which made it feel rather economical..otherwise is slightly on the expensive side ... But still not to be missed!
Their pick-up n drop facility to the mall is a good way of keeping the guests away from the parking hassles in the city.
A tip would be to take the rooms in the reception facing area ... Which sadly has only about 8-10 rooms only!
