Reviewed July 7, 2013

We stayed in Ramgarh Bungalows for a new year holiday as a group of friends. We were really impressed by the way they have restored old English cottages to their old glory. All our rooms had different character, we particularly liked the English room. The buffet breakfast was good and was served outside on a sunny terrace overlooking the valley.
The staff was very sweet and helpful. We also bought some jam from the jam factory in the same campus.
I would definitely go back there for a longer holiday, really loved the place.

Room Tip: Writers Bungalow and English cottage were good.

Stayed here for 2 nights in May end. Reached here early than check-in time and staff were kind enough to check -in us early. Also they changed my room on request as wanted a room with better view. The service and staff are great. Blue dressed staff for room service, red for restaurant and green for orchards. I liked the juices. The staff gave us peaches before our check out. Also had some fresh and best of peaches, took us for a tour to their orchards. I always like the soaps and shampoos of neemrana. The staff also helped me in fixing my car tyre. The rooms were clean and cosy. Had a great time and awesome location.

Room Tip: Stayed in Iris, economical and with best view.

Was in the region for work and stayed in the cottages. The place is a good 15 min drive from the main road... So don't think of coming back for knick knacks.. In fact pack in extra food and snacks before turning off the road.
The cottages are cosy , colourful, each with a sit out.. With a tea kettle provided we enjoyed endless cups of tea over looking the garden lined with hydrangeas and fruit laden trees.
The breakfast and meals are not extravagant but well made and sufficient, served by helpful staff and of course not Neemrana rates!
There are no ceiling fans, and the cottages can get a little stuffy.. Ask for sufficient pedestal fans.
While getting back do pick up a crate of fruits from the main crossing, when in season or otherwise the preserves of the fruits.

Room Tip: Take the rooms with a view to the valley

Had a great time staying at Ramgarh Bungalows. The property is situated at an awesome location and the view from the rooms is amazing. We stayed at Fucia room. Right from the time we landed at Kathgodam station at 5am in the morning the experience was great. As promised there was the car with a very nice and polite driver. While the official check in time was 2pm, we reached the property by 7am. We were immediately given an alternate room to settle down in till our room was made ready.
The room was nice and clean and the food was very good throughout the 3 days we stayed there.

three gorgeous days full of
endless daydreaming,
breakfast with the butterflies,
stumbling upon cone roses,
soaking in the soft winter sun,
lolling with friendly canines,
clicking happy shiny hill people,
reading with flowers in the window,
dreaming some more...
with bedside hot-water bottles
and getting some really sound sleep
in what was once Rabindranath Tagore’s
winter home.

This is not really a review of the writer’s bungalow
but more of an ode to the place and its people.

much love.

We are currently staying at Neemrana Ramgarh Bungalows and this is the start of our trip

We checked in today with family and have occupied rooms in Ashok Vatika. Had heard and read good reviews about the same. Day 1 experience has been poor. I write this review sitting in the hotel room on the first night of the stay. I am visiting with family; from a services as well as amenities stand-point, it has been a below average experience:

Please picture this:

1. We reached at 1400 hrs at the hotel and extremely tired after close to 370 kms drive from Gurgaon
2. Car is stuck at the entrance of the hotel, mid-way on a slope between entrance and the cottage as there is lot of soil and the surface is slippery. Nobody to guide on what to do and further parking. Even after 12 hours, the status hasn’t changed
3. Heavily raining at the time of check-in and there is 1 umbrella available to cater to 8 people
4. Lunch is served at old bungalow where one has to reach in own car as the lunch isn’t served in Ashok Vatika. We had to all rush in our cars in the middle of heavy downpour and got served cold food as a part of limited menu.
5. 50% of the day, no electricity and no power back-up either
6. It is pitch dark inside and outside both, as only 2 small candles lying in the room which can’t last for more than 1 hour (1 is already over)
7. I am in the ‘Blue’ room which is the more expensive one in this bungalow. It is heavily raining and the room is leaking from 2 sides and The carpet is all wet and now roof is also dripping. A failed attempt has been put up by the hotel staff after seeing the carpets and room getting drenched the whole day, to cover the outside of window with another layer but as I said, ‘failed’.
8. Some windows of room and bathroom just won’t close and there is a complete misalignment; have tried to stop the wind and water by keeping our bags and other stuff to block that.
9. Heaters and geysers of-course don’t work as there is no electricity
10. It is pitch dark with terrifying sounds of thunderstorm and heavy rains. Except the light from my cell phone, nothing else seems to be glowing here right now
11. Despite multiple reminders, I couldn’t get fresh cups and tea bags at night. Tried calling the hotel staff at 2230 for quilts and cups, but no-one would pick up
12. No complimentary mineral water in room. From minute 1, one has to order for the water (not sure why inconsistent from other Neemrana hotels)
13. Average quality, taste and spread of food (very unlike other Neemrana properties again)

It is a risky affair to visit with family (elderly and kids) and based on the current experience, I would not recommend this property to anyone. It is a definite ‘NO’, especially in monsoon.

Start of the holiday has been poor, hope to see some transformational changes in service. Big steps need to be taken for upkeep of property and expectations have been dropped completely. Not expected of Neemrana at all !!

With great difficulty , I rate it as 1 star.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback about The Ramgarh Bungalows.

As you are aware, the early monsoon has been very severe this year and all heritage hotels in the Uttarakhand region have been affected by the extreme weather. Many guests are stranded enroute too. The Head office in Delhi has only been able to communicate with the property through a mobile phone as neither the landlines, nor the internet are not working due to the heavy rains and wind.

Nevertheless, we have conveyed your feedback telephonically to the Manager and he will be taking the necessary remedial steps immediately to make your stay as comfortable as possible in the current circumstances.

We thank you for your feedback and do hope that the rest of your stay is more enjoyable.

Warm Regards,
Team Neemrana

We had a great time staying in the Ramgarh Bungalows. the place was very peaceful and quiet and we really enjoyed the morning trek also around the bungalows. the view of the mountains from our room balcony was also very excellent. The staff was also very courteous and helpful and Mr. Shailendra is a gem of a person. he made us feel like we were in our own Bungalow.I would definitely visit ramgarh bungalows again and again .

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Own up the Himalayas from colonial British bungalows with bay windows, verandahs and terraced gardens. In the foothills of the Himalayas, The Old Bungalow (1830) and The Writers’ Bungalow (1860) are located in the fruit basket of the Kumaon region. These heritage structures once housed the British – and later the Indian officers as well as their wives – who travelled on horseback and palanquins. The Ashok Vatika was a guest house for outsiders as visitors weren’t received at home, while the Cliff House is a designer’s delight. Vista Villa offers breathtaking views of the valley and Rose Cottage with its private terrace is ideal for a cosy hideaway. Neemrana’s six cottages in Ramgarh offer their own views of the sunrise and sunset, or both – and a new look on life too ! In season, the orchards adjacent to these bungalows, hang with apricots, plums, peaches, pears and apples throughout the summer. Natural Neemrana jams are made here – without preservatives – so that they preserve your health too. Enjoy the company of birdlife and butterflies in the fruit basket of the Kumaon. Sleep that deep slumber which irons out all stress. Live on a peak, or by a cliff or simply in the middle of an orchard. Fireplaces tingling with pine cones in winter. Snow flakes around the New Year. Short strolls to reconnect your legs to your planet. Or longer walks with a picnic basket. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Return when it runs out again. ... more   less
