Stayed with family at Judges court in Pragpur. Its an idyllic setting for sure and the property reminiscent of an era gone by. We were given adjacent rooms in what seemed like an outhouse to the main property and as expected the rooms were dated however a bit too rough around the edges for my liking. The food was honest...

Have been here so many times ..the property is very nice except the staff is very very lazy...it's as if they don't want to work. Morning aloo paranthas were friend in fish oil. Water takes ages to be served . I think the management should train the staff more professionally.

Stopped one night as part of tour. Time stopped setting. Very well maintained. Spotless. Comfortable. Great shower, good ac and wifi. Large superbly comfy rooms - really quaint and eclectic. Lots of interesting photos around to discover. Perfect balcony / outside area for sitting sitting around to have a drink, read and relax. Dinner setting lovely - lights and candles.... More

We entered down a wobbly lane just wide enough! We were greeted with a refreshing juice in a very old-fashioned, traditionally furnished room with chandeliers, old photos and many interesting ornaments. Our rooms were quite remarkable. We were the only people here and had 2 rooms on the first floor, off a veranda overlooking gardens. We also seem to have... More

Was planning to stay at this property after coming to know about it and yesterday I got a chance to stopover for lunch at the place and the food made me loose the above wish. Food is really bad and it's better if you have it elsewhere. Roadside Dhaba would be much better.

It is difficult to identify walk-in guests who patronize our restaurant and therefore, we are not able to recollect Mr Puneet Gupta. Enquiries at the property reveal no complaint concerning staff, service or quality was made. Nevertheless, our apologies and hope that on the next visit the fare will be found to be more palatable.

We stayed on June 25 as a stopover whilst going to Dalhousie. There are plenty of areas to sit and unwind. The f&b staff are acceptable. Food was a mixed bag. The salt was more couple of times. The sit out Dining in the evening was really enjoyable. What needs to be addressed is the lizards that seem to find... More

Thank you for pointing out the "salt" level in the food. The Cheff has been alerted. Regarding the "wildlife" we agree it is totally unwanted. However, as we are in an orchard with a lot of greenery, lizards do make an appearance in the humid monsoon season. We try to minimise their presence with the help of specialist pest control...

We stayed at the Judge's Court whilst en route to Dhramshala and quite honestly we wished we had just by-passed it and gone straight to Dhramshala. The house itself is lovely and has been refurbished but still maintains its colonial style and furniture. The grounds are lovely and it is very near to the Heritage Village - there are plenty...

A wonderful colonial building but the rooms are big, but a bit dated. Set in the middle of some wonderful scenery, dinner is taken on the lawn. The food was not the best I have ever had to be honest, but what folowed was one of those comedy gold moments that will last with me for a long time. Distant... More

Set in its own grounds adjacent to a heritage village. The hotel feels like you are staying in some ones house as a guest. Charming with very attentive staff. Dinner was served outside in the grounds with breakfast in a small separate building utilised as a dining room. Ideal for walks in the village. Would recommend
