Take my word for it ...
The most horrible hotel experience I had in recent times.
This hotel is nowhere even close to be called a 1 star hotel.
There are numerous let offs. Beginning with the staff. I guess the staff are just picked up randomly from the road.. no hotel management experience nothing ..
We reached Dehara Dun in the early morning 5 ish . I had earlier booked a cab with the hotel but to my horror the cab was not present at the station.
So I called up the hotel .. they Smsed me the drivers no .. I had to call him ask him where he was, to add to my dismay the driver was sleeping, he told me that he can pickup us only by 8a, I called the hotel to send me a new cab, they disappointment me further saying that he is the only driver they have. This got me all irritated. So i took the local taxi to mussoorie that all in 150 Rs .. the taxi stand is just a few steps away from the railway station.
The location of the hotel is on the second highest peak in mussoorie , something that they boost about but actually its really not something to be proud of.
The hotel is inaccessible from the main mall road . We had a ambassador, the local taxi guy couldn't lift his car to the "high peaks". He left us mid way on the steep winding road.
I called the hotel to send someone to pick us up from the mid way. I got a cold response from the hotel saying that all their skilled drivers will arive at the hotel at 9 am . I really had it by that time, because I had my elderly parents with me. I decided to walk to the hotel. Its really like climbing the EVEREST..
With all the luggage and my parents we reached the hotel in half an hour. A journey that could take 3 min by cab was stretched to half on hour. After reaching to the main lobby I requested to a room. After some paper work they provided me with a room. I was shocked to see the location of the room. It was on the topmost part of the hill. I called up the reception and asked them to provide me with a room close by to the main premises a promise that they would provide me one remained a promise till the end.
I would request all the travelers to avoid this hotel to the very end.
There are many who will agree to all the "hospitality" of this sick hotel.
