The resort is good and comfortable but needs refurbishment urgently. The food offered is decent, the rooms are ok but need attention. Water supply at our room ( the hot water) was erratic. The staff try their best to make you feel comfortable but I guess they are in need of more trained manpower. The restaurant had an old world... More

This is a heritage property - made out of an old hunting lodge. The actual heritage lodge has two suites and rest is reserved for ITC. Take time to visit the lodge and ask Mr rajesh - the manager to show around. He has been involved in the renovation and will happily show around. Your stay in the normal rooms.... More

A heritage property like Windsor Lodge is a out of world experience for history lovers. The view from the main lodge is amazing. Food was delicious and the staff was very helpful. You will find old style large bathrooms (as big as rooms) with all basic amenities. It is located in a peaceful area and its a perfect getaway.

To a certain extent the property meets those expectations while on some others it is a big letdown. Let’s look at the positives first. 1. If you get one of the rooms which has a balcony the view you... More

The lodge is the converted home of a maharaja. We stayed for three nights in June 2016. The manage and the staff showed such hospitality and desire to make our stay perfect.

We stayed from 1st January 2016 to 3rd January 2016 at the Hotel. Wonderful hospitality, homely atmosphere, decent staff and particularly Mr Sharma - Incharge of Reception and Guests.

The hotel is situated just near the golf course of Ranikhet and is a lovely colonial heritage place. It is great for a relaxing getaway. It has only one restaurant 'The Kumaon Room' which serves multi-cuisine food. Quality of food was nice. The outstanding thing about the place was the service/hospitality.
