“Kinnaur - a timeless beauty and an eloquent grandeur”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Kinnaur is a place for timeless beauty and eloquent grandeur. The hotel Apple Pie has been situated in Rakcham, near about 14 km from Sanghla and on the way to Chitkul. The position is very beautiful and hospitality is indeed remarkable. If you plan for Sanghla then you should stay here if you want to come closer of the natural beauty.

we went to this place after reading the positive reviews from trip advisor but as we started settling down at the hotel we realized it was complete opposite to what we were expecting. First the food-half cooked pakoras, over
priced simple bread omelette, half baked roti, refusal to most items on the menu-and the reason is the hotel doesn't have a proper cook, the other does the cooking himself, so as we could guess he was tired and not in a mood to cook time consuming items he made excuses of non availability of most things on menu. But the biggest dampner was still awaiting us -we got a rude shock when we received the extra bedding we had asked for, torn bed sheet, dirty quilt, and damp mattress is what we get, even though we had taken their premium rooms. And even after we pointed it out repeatedly nothing was changed. The owner was arrogant and refused to listen. We did not even get drinking water at night and had to wait till morning to have some water to
drink. Our bad experience just didn't stop here-the kettle in which we were given water had fungus all over, of course wet would have taken ill had we not noticed this timely. So much for the TripAdvisor rated hotel.
My verdict-don't visit this
hotel, in all probability the good reviews have been published by the owner-Mr Aman Ahuja himself.
Two cents to the owner-if you are in service industry please understand the customer is paying you for the 'service' , improve or you'll disappear!

P.S. - uploading pics too, to corroborate my review.

Respected Mam

First of all i cant force anyone to write any review as you have just mentioned in your comments.
Secondly i fully agree that you are paying for the services but the people deployed for your services cant be engaged completely to you.At first i insisted you to take three rooms but you were not ready for it and you accomodated 7 adults in two rooms while the rooms are meant for two adults only.Secondly you didnt place your order for dinner even after continuous reminders.This is an offbeat location and all the things are not readily available here.If you were looking for a service standard matching a megacity....its not possible here..Other thing i would like to mention is that your behaviour towards the staff members was rude.They are also human beings and deserve respectful adressal.I agree that the extra bed was damp but that was all i had at that moment viewing the amount of rain kalpa had recieved in the past four days.I can fulfill the basic needs of a human but fulfilling the desires are beyond my control.But i shall still try to make myself adapt for such situations also.
Thanks
Aman Ahuja

awesome food with touch of home....all made very fresh....excellent cook.
on the top of it,mr aman ahujaa as a solo person in charge was added advantage....
we stayed two nights but it was far too less....u need atleast 4 nights to be fully satisfied....
kalpa is very quie place and persons who likes pollution free atmosphere and quite place will only like it...strongly recommend people to stay at apple pie...no better place than this....

Room Tip: room no 301,302 and 303 are the best...

Kalpa is indeed a nice place to be and staying in Hotel Apple Pie is added advantage. One can not except more than this in budget travel from this location. Mr Sharma was a good help n guide thorough out our trip to Himachal Prades. We wish to return this place with more friends in 2013 as well.
