Also, it was weird that they didn't offer dental kits to their guests (which is "a given" everywhere).. The highlight though was the event by Osho... More

Stayed 1 night while coming from keylong to delhi. Room allocated was on top floor corner. Thank god they had a lift. The other Johnson property next door does not have it. Room facilities were decent. No refrigerator though. Loved the bathroom which had a glass ceiling opening to the sky. The front view faced the lawn and the road.... More

Pluses: - Large, clean and comfortable rooms. - Nice sitout gardens with good views from the rooms. - Location close to the Mall road (if someone is keen on staying closeby). - Very efficient and prompt room service and helpful staff. The impression one gets is that they indeed want to serve you and manage to do that as well.... More

Stayed here with my family from 21st May to 24th May. The hotel is very close to the Mall(walking distance). The hotel is one of the best in Manali. The ambience and decor is good. Price wise it is in the mid-segment. The best part of the hotel is its restaurant. Arguably the best in Manali. The continental preparations are... More
