The hotel greets you with a warm smile and has a very supporting staff. Management is very good. The view from the rooms are breath taking. For food they need to cope up but till then you can enjoy the local delicacies. Even though me n my friends went in the month of monsoon, we had a clear and very... More

After reading good TripAdvisor reviews we have booked two rooms for a quiet holiday with family. This place is perched on a hill slope and most of the rooms are actually built down the road along the slope. We spoke to Mr. Arjun Mahajan who reserved the top rooms for the best view of the valley. The TripAdvisor 2013 excellence... More

It's a cute little hotel with all rooms well done up and facing the valley. Even though our room's wash room wasn't upto the mark in terms of cleanliness and fittings, the superb service and promptness more than made up for it! They are expanding the building sideways hence best to avoid staying there for a couple of months if... More

We stayed here on a friend's recommendation. We found the hotel to be very clean. Staff was friendly and cooperative. The rooms were done very professionally which I think is credited to their tie up with OYO rooms. The rooms have a fantastic view of Chail.

The hotel is at a beautiful location. Rooms are clean and tidy. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Approach road is good. The only thing they need to add is- more food options, especially vegetarian food.

We were a group of 5 friends so we booked the suite. The room was incredibly neat and tidy. It was very comfortable for the five of us. The staff is super friendly! In a hill station you prefer jus relaxing and not straining much, the hotel and the staff becomes super important. The chail residency staff always serviced us... More

This is a small property located 2 km away from main chail market. The views from all the rooms are great. The staff is very polite and helpful. Had some misunderstanding regarding early check-in charges as we were not informed about it beforehand but was resolved after a discussion with the owner. Would visit again if get a change.

After reading numerous reviews, zeroed in on Chail Residency and booked on Bookings.com. Was immediately contacted by Mr. Mahajan (the owner). After bookings, had to amend the same a... More
