The Hermitage Kanatal
Ranked #2 of 10 New Tehri B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 10, 2011

My husband, 7 year old daughter and I spent 4-5 days here. Its a wonderful escape from the mad bustle of our everyday city life. Kanatal is a beautiful place and the resort is located such that it has a wonderful view in every direction. When you walk into the resort the old world charm of the place is the first thing that strikes you. The owner is very friendly and really made our trip most enjoyable. We spent a lazy few days there going for long walks every day either down the road, or to a small pond where we saw many birds (like the chestnut bellied rock thrush, oriental white eye, sunbirds, etc.) We were really lucky one day to just look out of window and see two yellow throated martins (small mammals) running around in the garden.
The hotel itself is a very comfortable. I found the food a bit expensive but as our plan included breakfast, that was not an issue with us. We ate one meal out somewhere and one meal at the resort and it worked out fine. My only complaint I guess would be that the bathrooms need redoing. They were clean but coiuld have been a bit fancier. Suman, the owner did say that they were thinking of remodelling and so that might have changed already.
If you wanted to just sit in the resort, theres a comfortable room with sofas and armchairs that are perfect to curl up in with a book.
There are also board games and badminton, etc if you would prefer to play something outdoors.
All in all, a wonderful holiday getaway.

Room Tip: Choose a room upstairs to be as far as away from the road and get a good view of the valley.

Kanatal as a place is beautiful and peaceful, all those whose dont like the crowd in hills this is a place for you.
It has many big properties , our group was big and different requirement hence the travel was budget.
The Hermitage is a good place overall. The rooms are spacious and linen is ok. garden and some sports activities are nice. rooms dont have filter on windows so lots of insects come in at night. service is nice.

Breakfast area looks superb and food they serve in bf is good, but in night or afternoon the food provided was ok. I dont find the place value for money in 3 k per night inc food.

electricity went out for 30 hrs from our 40 hr stay and they tried to get things for us but was not successsful. hence while asking for some discount for inconvenience they did not buy our idea.
