I can't thank everyone at Hotel Chail Residency enough for their warm, welcoming and helpful service. Chail is absolutely stunning and so peaceful. We had a huge comfy bed, lots of space, hot water and an AMAZING view from the balcony. The staff were all so kind and extremely helpful - they couldn't have done more. The manager/owner Mr Arjun...

We have just had a wonderful stay at Chail Residency. We treated ourselves to the Super-Deluxe room which was worth it because we had a balcony which we could sit out on & enjoy the beautiful views across the valley. The staff was very proactive, courteous and helpful & their efforts made sure our stay was enjoyable. Would love to...

When it come to stay, Chail doesn't offer very great options.This is a small boutique hotel located right on the Chail-Kandaghat road. It is a budget hotel, so value for money is good. Stuffs are cordial and very helpful. Food is also good. The rooms are spacious and offers excellent view of the valley. However, the furniture and decor needs...

This is one of the best hotel in Chail in budget category. It is a small hotel at the moment (new block to be functional soon as per the update from hotel staff) but the way they made our stay pleasant and comfortable is worth appreciating. We reached hotel early but they gave us an early check-in to another room...

Except for the location there's nothing to write home about this property. Chail Residency is short staffed and their personnel lack the basics of hospitality industry. Food is below average & over priced. Rooms aren't clean and services are less than satisfactory. Won't recommend unless you don't find another room in Chail.

The worst hotel I have stayed in my whole life. It seemed the last time the hotel and its rooms were cleaned was never. The whole place smelled of mustiness and there were whole lot of insects and mosquitoes to keep you busy at night. Food wasn't good and the service provided was far from satisfactory. All in all a...
