“Awesome Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

West view is a beautiful property. Rooms are nice, bathrooms are clean, service and food is great. One can also enjoy nature walk from the hotel itself. A small family trekking if I may call it. I would love to visit this property again. I was also touched with their service where in they took care of small things after over hearing our conversations. A must visit property.

The property as is well known is a heritage property inherited by some Indian from Britishers. All I could say about my experience to this property is that it s being run just for making money. The tariff are at par with the 3 star property but not even a 1 star in services. The rooms are good and give you the feeling of experiencing the old days. But it has nothing else as commendable. I don't know for what purpose they have provided a full fledged door in the bathroom and not even a single ventilator for proper ventilation. The overall bathroom size was very good but again the bathing area was reduced to an obstructing space of around 3 x 4 sq-ft.

The kids play ground was provided in the backyard just adjacent to the huge valley endangering the life and safety of your child. See-saw and other similar small games were broken. But they have compensated it with the dressing stool provided in the room which will give you enough to lurch to and fro. The tariff is of 3 star but the quality and variety and taste of food is even poor than a local Dhaba. They will not let you gain weight by eating too much on MAP basis as they will not serve you the Chapatis oh... oh ......sorry....... Naan (prepared from cheap raw material called maida) on time and your hunger would eventually ripe off from the time you extend in waiting for them.

Moreover, there is no space for your Driver so its better to be ready to pay hefty amount for your Driver too, quite disturbing.

From recreational area point of view, they provide you a badminton court with three rackets (whose grips are ripped off) and an old shuttle. Apart from this, there was a Samantham Boutique, dont know from where it derived its Name but its a small room of around 5 x 7 sq-ft with an old mirror and some futile scapegoats for your money.

Room Tip: I gave you a good reason to choose your accommodation.

We arrived at west view ranikhet for our honeymoon after a long drive of 12 hours from lucknow and the moment we stepped out, all our tiredness vanished. The view, the solitude, the friendly staff, the good food, the wonderfully comfortable rooms...all added to our bliss. My husband went gaga over the aloo parathas...it was a perfect honeymoon..quiet blissful...west view played a major role in it...

West View is a nice place, not over the top luxury hotel, yet provides with the basic aminities which gives a perfect holiday setting. The property is well located, away from the hustle and bustle, overlooking the valley and well spread out. The old huts and cottages are maintained decently enough, though there are room for improvement. The staff is very friendly and ever present at our needs. The food spread at the buffet was simple (the breakfast spread was a bit too simple, and needs a bit of an upliftment) but tasty enough.
Overall, a nice place and recommended for travellers.
