extremely romantic would be a good phrase to describe this place. Location is a little difficult to get to but once you get there, its all worth it. The rooms are small but comfortable. The lines, bath towels are all very well maintained. The restaurant food was delicious, a little slow in service but oh well! We had time!:) Overall, wonderful.

Room Tip: as high a floor as you can get

I stayed in this wonderful hotel in Aug 2011.
Hotel & room was very good. Room, bathroom, carpets was very clean. I really liked housekeeping & their excellent hospitality.
The most impressive was they daily doing cleaning and changing bed sheet, bed cover, towels, etc.
Food was little costly but compare to other place in Manali it is ok, but food was very testy. I got free internet facilities so taken my ticket print there only.
Thanks Mr. Lovely for your excellent hospitality. Thanks Mr. Amit for better guidance & arranging texi for Manali visit. But don’t trust on taxi driver they have commission based business on tourist place like paragliding and all. I got cheaper price for paragliding then driver’s recommended ppl.
*Visitor please don’t buy Chinge blanket in manali, for this better take advice from hotel ppl

When i started off from shimla i had enquired some people about this hotel and some taxi people said why i chose this hotel as it's not known much. The look outside is not the same thing which is posted on their website so when i went in i was having an inside fear how good will it be inside.. ( Amit had already told me that many things have changed the way hotel looks from outside and he was very honest about it from the beginning.
From the time i spoke to Amit Thakur ( Manager ) over phone for booking and until i checked out i was thanking the reviews posted by other members in trip advisor. Amit was honest and up front and also very courteous as well as his staff.
The service was simply superb always beyond expectations and never felt even a single moment that i have made a wrong decision for choosing this hotel. They arranged for all local sight seeing tours as well as tickets for me to chandigarh. I stayed in their family room and my son enjoyed the bunkers, it was neat and clean. Food served was awesome,

Highly recommend this hotel and for the tariff that they charge compared to others it's one of the memorable ones

First Some Pros:

1. Person who served us throughout our stay was hospitable and talks with a lot of courtesy.
2. Non-Veg top floor restaurant
3. I was allowed to stay put at the room till 4PM on check-out day, it was literately pouring.
4. Though I had opt for shared visit to Manikaran, Mr amit arranged a private Alto from thier hotel with an additional charge of 300/-. That I agreed as I had given last day 200/- to taxi driver on shared taxi.

Cons :
1. Its not a 3* hotel, you can rate it as higher end 2* max, so do not expect the services offered by any 3* hotels, they will crib for every single thing and then settle for something saying they are very accommodating.
2. No BUFFET (Breakfast/Dinner)
3. You will have to depend on their choice for having Breakfast & dinner [if you tell them your choice and it will not fit in budget, Get ready for a bargain on FOOD as well] :-)
4. Non-Veg meal means (1 chicken OR mutton dish [NOT Both]) and rest will be Veg. That was horrible to listen from the staff. [I had taken Non-veg meal Package]
5. Non-Veg dish taste like a Veg dish with Paneer substituted with Chicken [I ordered Kadai Chicken].
6. At the time of check-in they do not bother to read the things mentioned in the package given to me by travel agent [Thats created a big confusions twice]. If they would have read that at the time of check-in, these confusions and problems faced by me could have been avoided.
7. Welcome Drink on Arrival was not offered because the time of check-in was abnormal (5:45 PM) Or they may have forgotten, But instead of accepting their mistake, Hotel manager (Mr Amit) got pissed off badly and said you have not paid me money, go and ask your travel agent.
8. DO NOT OPT for packed breakfast if you don't like - Slices of bread with tomato & cucumber with juice & Banana. [Logic: They are serving this from long time and thats easy for them to pack at 3-4 AM when guests leave for Rohtang passs, I was given the same at 8 AM :-) ] .. My expectation was : Bread Omelette/Stuffed Paratha/Boiled eggs/Poori Bhaji/Idli
9. I had opted for Full day sight seeing to Rohtang pass on shared basis but we went only till Marhi [as Rohtang was not open for Tourist, and thats fine] but after that there were 2 more points to cover in the day but I was come to know that ticket is booked for only Marhi- up and down and we have to pay if we want to see other points(Gulaba/Salong Valley). I paid 200/- to taxi driver along with other couples and went to salong valley for Paragliding, Cable Trolly and Mountain biking.

Lastly, Next time I would go for a 4* OR 3* high end Hotel because they do not crib for every small things. Till Now I had wonderful experience with Honeymoon Inn Mussorie and Shimla, Alore Grande Goa.

Room Tip: Standard - Ground Floor, Deluxe - First Floor, and so on...No view from any Room

SilmogGarden, Owner at Silmog Garden, responded to this reviewResponded September 27, 2011

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your review. Well there are More then few issues mentioned in your reviews:

Kindly Note: This is what we have to say:

Your reservation was made through some Travel agent

1) We clearly mention to our guest that this is 2 star property not a 3 star property and what your travel agent mentioned has nothing to do with us. Please if possible kindly visit our website and try to look for any term stating that Silmoggarden is a 03 star property.

2) Buffet .... Sir, is it possible to put Buffet Dinner for just 01 room.
Please give your Honest reviews.

3) Dinner choice was made on your request

a) first day you said no to non veg ( cause you don't non veg. on Saturdays )

b ) Chicken 01 day ( Menu as per your order was Kadai chicken + fried chicken both seperate + regular menu course etc.

c) Mutton 02nd day + rest regular menu course ( Menu as per your order ) Menu was fixed as per your choice or not. and we also asked how you want it be served.

4 ) you have put complain against our food quality . chicken tastes like veg. etc.

Kindly pick any positive review or negative reviews and send them an email and ask them about our food quality . Silmog Garden is known for food and quality.

5) As per your complaint , you wrote they did not bother to read what all was included in our package.
a) i am the one who sent that email to your travel agent , so i know what all was included in your package. send us your email id ,so i can forward you the whole conversation with your travel agent then you will know who is right or wrong.

6) Attention Required Welcome Drink :::: Who paid the difference amount Rs.600 for Manikaran Tax was it less then your welcome drink . and did we charge you any extra for late check out.

7) Packaged breakfast . ( Sir, if you remember 7:am in the morning i came to room cause again there was issues going on ) this is when you asked for breakfast timings cause you were suppose leave for Rohtang . and i said we will arrange for your breakfast at 7:30am . why to go with packed option. Normal breakfast timing is 8:30 am ( and you expect Buffet at your wish).

Please go through Expected Menu and judge your own expectations.......
Sir, you must be having Breakfast daily at Home too.

8) Rohtang Tour :

a ) Ask your agent about the road conditions.

b) This was a Sharing Tempo with 4 More couple, so this was not our regular cars/taxi
and we do not take responsibility for 3rd party service which was clearly mentioned to your travel agent and we do not offer any shared cab on our website.

c) As per your information given by you.The tempo driver charged rest of the couple traveling too for Solang not just you.

d) To avoid similar issue i arranged a private cab only for 02 pax. to Manikaran
which cost Rs.1500/- and where i was paid Rs.600 by your agent for the same tour on sharing
the difference amount was Rs.900 out of which i charged you Rs.300 and Rs.600 Rest of the Difference amount was paid by us.

to check Manikaran taxi charges call local taxi union 1902252021.

9) Manager misbehaving: After putting our best possible efforts ( Meals at your choice + Extra payment to the taxi wala) to make your stay comfortable,

you were still cribbing for more things... then we told you to speak to your travel agent, cause we had not made any commitments directly to you. not paid us directly. This was the last alternate left by us.

Required some clarification on this , after asking you to speak with your agent ,did you speak with them at all during your stay.

We request you to give us an explanation on this.

10) Your last complaint :

Till Now I had wonderful experience with Honeymoon Inn Mussorie and Shimla, Alore Grande Goa.

Kindly compare there package cost and inclusion with ours.


We are very sorry for not been able to full fill expectation and promises made by your agent if any.

Best Regards,
Amit thakur
