“An Idyllic Cottage Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We stayed at the Majkhali property in a delightful stone and wood cottage (the sort one reads about in books), surrounded by the lush greenery of the tastefully landscaped grounds. The property was a huge hit with everyone in the family. The husband was happy with the presence of cable tv. The children loved the freedom to wander about the property and explore the grounds. The numerous reading corners ensured that everyone had a cosy nook to themselves. The presence of a verandah and a garden gave one different options to enjoy the outdoors. The cottage was tastefully done up with comfortable furniture. It was well maintained and one did not want for anything. Apparently, on clear days from the cottage itself one could get spectacular views, which unfortunately are not visible in June.
The staff was quiet, courteous and ever willing to provide assistance when needed. The cook prepared really delicious food, home-style. He prepared some lovely local dishes such as pahari raita and kumaoni mutton, ensuring we ate more than we should have!
Basically, this was a perfect holiday for one, as at this property I did not have to lift a finger. The premises were comfortable and well maintained; the food was delicious, the air fantastic, the peace bliss.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely. We preferred the upstairs bedroom wih the balcony.

We have stayed over several occasions at the cottage in Majkhali and have found this to be the perfect place for an idyllic getaway -far from the sound and sights of the city. On clear days the view of the Kumaon Himalayas from the cottage is mesmerizing. The staff at the cottage go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and pamper you. We last stayed there in end May 2014 when we went with our daughter, her husband and our grandchild and had one of the most wonderful holidays ever!n

stayed 2d/3n @ cottage elite in majkhali, ranikhet.
we reached @ cottage after long journey from Delhi & found the staff warm & welcoming.
The location of the property is very nice, so much that didn't feel like going anywhere for sight seeing.
They prepared food as per our choice & it was very good & home like.
perfect place to spend quality time with family & friends.

Home away from Home... a perfect accommodation while in hills to beat the mad crowd of big cities.... Searched this place on internet and though not much review available ...but some how liked this hotel after going through their website...being a travel professional my self need to check this property and the quality the offer.. price was also a concern but liked their uniform policy to travel companies and professionals...... Located on quite and serene environment has ample parking space... accommodation was quite clean and comfortable,,, even the decor and interior made us feel at home ....the attendant Mr.Gopal was excellent and made excellent fresh food for us and took a very good care of our...Cosmos Himalayan Villas what they call them have a slightly different concept and accommodation than the conventional hotels..... actually while on a holidays in Hills we always need this type of accommodation and lodging which makes all the difference...over all we were content and satisfied with our quality time spent there which was quite refreshing and rejuvenating..

Cosmos Himalayan Villas gives you an unique experience in terms of location, services, overall treatment and food. Been there many a times and every time I visit Cosmos I feel like I am home. Home made food, cottage planning, quick services are their major plus.
