Situated at 6,726ft in the magnificent Himalayas, Johnson Lodge is a fairy tale lodge set in the heart of Manali. Just a stone throw away from a dense pine forest with an impressive view of the towering mountains and a 5 min walk to the Mall, Johnson Lodge's ideal location draws visitors from all over the world. Johnson Lodge is a fine example of the colonial era with a sprawling beautifully head out garden. Wood paneling and unique art work creates an aura of old world charm. Wooden flooring,rich furnishings complimented by modern amenities make the rooms- a home away from home, a luxurious retreat. Soaked in the space that is accessible to all the adjacent sightseeing points, Johnson Lodge spells charm, delight and indulgence. The Bar and Restaurant at Johnson Lodge offers a wide range of cocktails/mocktails and mouth watering cuisines. The Spa Magnolia at Johnson Lodge offers specialized Ayurvedic treatments that leaves one rejuvenated. And for paws, claws and jaws- we are perhaps the most pet friendly hotel in the town.

The place is nice, with welcoming and helpful staff. It is located at walking distance to Mall road. I was staying there with my family including 2 kids and the room had the key requirements to make us feel comfortable. Very cool restaurant area.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive comments. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! It is very important to keep both Energy and Water backup as after snow more than half of the manali has to suffer crisis due to water and electricity. The reason we have our own source of water so that our guests never feel stuck at times of Heavy Snow. We hope your next stay is just around the corner. Call us if there is anything we can help you with. Warm Regards

Dear Mr. Hanks. Thank you for taking the time to write review. Thank You for appreciating Food, Service Staff and Music. All your comments are essential to educating us about good and bad. Though I would like to mention that our prices are high so that we are able to filter the guests coming in as we are centrally located and everyone wants to come here, but it ends up spoiling the ambience or more fights in busier days. Our management could find only this way to keep the ambience and better crowd, without refusing anyone to come. This is the reason the portion we serve is always more as compared to other restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Very Best Regards.
