This is a best place for the guys who are travelling for getting time for themselves out of the busy life. This is a solitude place with peace all around. You have to walk for 10-15 minutes uphill to reach this cottage and this Is the best part, as vehicle can't reach there and thus silence is maintained. Although difficult... More

The Hotel is really located at Hilltop and you need to climb some distance. But it offers amazing views. Place is clean with all amenities and food from the restaurant was good. Owner is helpful. Free WIFI is offered.

It's a bit of a walk to get places but that doesn't matter gives you a chance to explore ! I would highly recommend... More
