A great hotel amidst the wilderness. Amazing property to unwind and forget the world. Plus a great bunch of guys. If you happen to be in Ranikhet, there is no better place than this to stay. A special mention of the restaurant staff - ever ready to rustle up what ever you ask for.

This is the most charming hotel we have ever visited! The colonial villa is very well converted into a hotel and has been there since several decades. The decor will take you back to the British era.
