“Lovely View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We visited the resort in March 2013. The view of Himalyan range is breath taking and that what makes you feel relax from your travel. We stayed in Log hut room which was well maintained and beautiful. Resort is isolated from the hus and fus of the city.
Food is excellent and has a very good taste and made as per our order.

Terrible experience with family. 7 family members in 3 log huts.

Zero hospitality. They took our order for dinner - when the food was laid, we were served something else - saying that they did not have the tandoor up and could not prepare the order, so, changed the order to their convenience.

We requested for bonfire to be put up on our first day and they delayed it till 9.00 pm, by when we were not in a mood for it. Realized it the next day, that they did not have the firewood. The second day when they did get some wood, it was so wet that it would just not light up and we eventually gave up the idea after trying for a few hours.

For breakfast the next morning, they wanted us to have aaloo puri and not order for anything else as it would be a lot of work. The guy clearly seemed upset as we pushed him to prepare egg and toast as well.

They have 2 refrigerators - and both of them dont work. We did not get any ice for our drinks.

We were in the log huts and there was cow dunk right outside our room. It was really disappointing -given the fact that we have booked in advance. The rooms were open to air, once we reached. Moreover, I had to explicitly call and request to have the dunk cleaned - they did seem to have it in them to have a clean surrounding.

I am definitely never going back there ever again.

We visited the Holm Farm Heritage in the month of April ,2012. The first thing that left us in awe was the wonderful view coupled with the feel good factor that the place offered. The staff were courteous and the site breathtakingly beautiful. The view of the himalyas from the lawns was an unique experience.There were enough means and ways to keep us engaged,my child enjoyed the lilly pool and the swings.The log huts were beautiful and secluded but living in the main property had its own charm. The food was tasty and is made to order as per our needs . Overall,this place not only took care of our holiday needs but enhanced the feel of our holiday. A special thanks to Mr & Mrs Upadhyay for making the place a paradise for tourists.

Room Tip: Can choose any room,all are good however the log huts are a special treat.

We made our trip in the month of May'12. The property is in the mist of a forest and a little secluded from the main town of Ranikhet. Once you reach this property you will fall in love with the property. The property has not more than 10 or 12 rooms and we booked log huts which are little away from the main property and totally give the feeling of staying from all the hustle and bustle. Even though the log huts cost less than the actual rooms at the property but i would recommend you to book it for the fun of it. The room and bathroom are spacious with not too luxurious of comforts. The best part of staying in log huts was sitting outside the log huts in the evening and enjoying hot tea and pakoras. A special mention has to be made regarding the food of the place, though the variety is not too much but the food is simply awesome. The staff is very courteous and the owner is a gem of person to know. The most favorite of all was owners dog "Bongo" who is as friendly as it gets and you would just want to cuddle him. Overall when in Ranikhet there is no other place that you should stay except this one.

Room Tip: If you get a chance do stay in the log huts even though they are cheaper than other rooms on offer i...

I visited Holm Farm in June 2012. Excellent property, excellent food, excellent location, excellent hospitality.....everything is good about that place. My 4 yr old son enjoyed d most in their swings, slides, seeing frogs croaking in the pool with blooming water lilies and small fishes. I am already looking forward to my next visit to Ranikhet to stay at Holm Farm. The rooms are neat, clean and very spacious.

Room Tip: The log huts are small but cozy. The cottages are huge with huge bathrooms. All the rooms are nice.

We made our first trip to Ranikhet in May '12. This turned out to be a wrong time to get the picturesque view of Himalayas. Ranikhet doesnt have much to do otherwise either. The stay at Holm Farm compensated more than enough. Nestled in the forest 2.5 kms from main road, it is a great place for lonely walks and relaxation. The log cottages were quite romantic, even though we would have loved to stay at the 100 year old Holm Bungalow. It was a truly divine experience to sit in the slopes around with just the chirping of himalayan birds for company. But if you want to see the snow capped himalayas, dont go before the rains happen in June/ July.
