“We opened the window and the Himalayas rushed in!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We reached Chevron Eco Lodge around 3.30 pm and was blown by the beauty and location of the place. Though we could only see a blurry Himalaya, but the ambiance and the rustic look of the lodge was enough to please us. A guy came out and the first thing we asked him whether lunch is available or not. It was around 4 pm and the guy politely said "yes" and his face didn't show any irritation. I know it is the 'job' of any hotel, but I have come across many resorts where I have seen the service team gets upset if you ask them lunch in odd times. Chevron Eco Lodge, where we spent two excellent days, was all about "yes". Whatever we asked, whenever we asked, they said "yes" and tried their best to help us. I would specially take the name of Mr Manoj alongwith the team behind for making our stay so wonderful.

When it comes to viewing Himalayas, I must say, Chevron Eco Lodge is one of the best places to experience the Himalayas. Every morning we opened the our window and felt like the Himalayas had jumped inside our room and we were sitting on our sofa facing Trishul and Nandadevi.

The food is great, specially the Kumaon Chicken Curry. Every guest must try it atleast once. In the evening, it was cold and the resort organized bonfire in open air dining area. It is calm, quite, peaceful. The best thing to do once you are in Eco Lodge is to have long walks while watching the Himalayas. We were there for two nearly full moon nights and we really enjoyed our stroll across the narrow lanes with the moonlight filtering through the pine trees with our footsteps breaking the eternal silence. One more thing. When I looked up, I realized, one can seldom see so many stars in the city.

Stay in Chevron Eco Lodge when you are in Kausani. If 'tranquility' is what you are looking for, you will get it right there.

It's called eco lodge, so everything is built with mud, brick & lot of wood. No concrete from what I could see & saw some solar panels etc.
Location is nice, we stayed only for a day, so didn't do much. I would say it's not a place where you can do much, but good for chilling out. You can actually see Mt.Trisul part of the Himalayan Mountain Range.
The food and facilities are fine, nothing special but not bad either. For the kind of facility and experience it's bit pricey.

the tourism people want to keep kausani a secret place. i just found it on a map and decided to go there. looking for a accn i found this hotel with fair review and booked.on arrival we were surprised to find this hotel in a great location.when you stand in the garden ,the snow capped himalayas are there in front of you. what else you need. the room was acceptable , food was palatable .verandah was a fine place where sitting there the time flies. we enjoyed the stay because we could see what we wanted toi see all our lives THE HIMALAYAS.

raja the mgr took care of us .there are not many things you can do when you are in kausani..
anasakti asram is one. since this is a less crowded hill station you can walk along the main road .
sunrise and sunset point is another thing to see. but above all the scenic beauty and least polluted is there for you enjoy.
probably chevron helps you to enjoy it better

Room Tip: try to get a room directly facing the mountains

Only think positive about he stay was location of the property.
rest Everything can be summed up in a single word..HORRIBLE!!!!

Rooms had spider webs, spiders crawling around along with bugs.
Food was pathetic, room service was terrible, phone connections in the room did not work.

Above all room service stole money from my wallet lying in the room.
When Mr Arun, manager of the hotel was informed, he tried to hush up the matter.
"Sir police complaint kya karenge, aapko haraasment hoga, aap tourist log hain"
(Sir shy do you want to do a police complaint, it will be harrasment for you, you are tourist move on...)

Please stay away from this property, I went by too many good reviews on Trip advisor for this property, but guess most of them were from their own people.

Just stay away, or else you will be writing a same review here !!! :)

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel !!!!

We did a day trip from Ranikhet to Kausani hoping to escape the haze of forrest fire and get a peek at the peaks. We booked two day rooms just to laze around.
Location of the property is excellent - right on the view point and on the main road. No rock climbing to reach the hotel.
The building is very nice but facilities are rather basic. Rooms and toilets are clean. Great view even fro the ground floor rooms with windows open. The dining area is open air with basic but excellent quality food. The kitchen cooked up our meal for 5 persons in a matter of 2 hours. The lawn is excellent with unobstructed views of Himalayas (when there is no haze...unfortunately we went on a day of haze and even after a short shower the haze did not clear). I would immagine the property will be excellent for honeymoon couples (we were a group of oldies in 50s and 60s).
Great property to feel close to nature and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Choose rooms in the front side - three rooms in the ground floor and three on the first floor. Corne...

This was my 4th visit to Kausani, but the 1st time that I fell under it's spell. This was partly because of this lovely hotel and also as it was "off season". The hotel has an old world feel - all stone and wood construction, the wooden floor vibrates as you walk. There is a nice bit of garden, with lawns and flowering plants looking on to the Himalayas beyond. The balconies with heavy wooden armchairs are an ideal place to read your book on a sun filled , lazy afternoon. The buzzing bees, twittering birds and an occasional monkey your only companions!
We didn't lack any comforts-- hot water, heater, clean quilts and cups of tea; all were taken care of. The "indoor games" the hotel advertised was also available in the form of a functioning badminton area. Even some travel books ( on Italy and Spain, but none on Kumaon) were available, together with a few copies of National Geographic :-)
The minus point - -- Food. It was too oily and spicy, but served with so much enthusiasm and smiles that we didn't have the heart to complain!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with a view.
