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.
