A beautiful hotel with a british era touch. There are two hotels with the same name adjacent to each other, one belong to the sister(where we stayed) and the other one is of a brother of the same family. Food is a ilttle expensive, but overall a very nice and romantic place for couples. Strongly Recommended!

The overall experience in the hotel was good. Spacious rooms, outdoor garden where you can just sit and idle away time, rooms overlooking snow capped mountains, friendly staff and a very good restaurant with a cozy fireplace and excellent food. The food prize is a bit on the higher side, but the menu is vast and the food is worth the money you pay.. The only thing which we didnt like about the hotel was their bedding, quilts and towels. Bed was hard and quilts and towels were old. Other than that, the stay at the hotel was memorable and would surely recommend to anyone

If wish to get away from the maddening city life and enjoy a peaceful time with yourself - you would want to book a cottage for yourself at the Johnson Lodge. It is reasonable priced, well located, has clean rooms, lush green gardens, good food, close proximity to the mall. In all, you will have a great time.

We stayed here after having camped for 5 days so it was great to have a bed and an ensuite bathroom! The rooms were very nice and the garden beautiful. However the service was VERY slow in the main hotel, although the second night we went to Johnson's bar and restaurant anf things were a lot better there. You don't want to be in a hurry to get breakfast over and done with. Be prepared for a long wait for the omelettes! They are trying to be an international hotel but wouldn't take credit cards and didn't really like to take US dollars even though there was a money changer 3 doors down the road. However when they realised that dollars was all I had, they grudgingly gave in and took them

One f the best place i ve ever stayed. It was a trip that was made truly blissful by the stay at Johnsons. Be it the room or the restaurant, food or the music, one can be absolutely sure of the quality. Hats off to the DJ for awsme trance party and to the chefs for delightful Trout fish!

highly recommended to all kind f travellers.......

Room Tip: all rooms are same but if u r lookin for smthing special, penthouse or the cottage is recommended

Firstly let me inform u"ll on 1 thing d Johnsons lodge is divided into 2-Johnsons lodge and jimmy johnsons lodge both are equally good but to avoid confusion at the time of bookings u must know that they were d same hotel bt hav been divided into two so ask at the time of bookings...v stayd at the cottage at jimmy johnsons lodge and it was the best cottage n stay v have had..the cottage is very beautifull and classy and the services are excellent..contact Mr Rajesh Kaushal he is a very helpful person..trust me ur stay in these cottages is going to be worth the cost and u wont feel like leaving these english styled marvellous cottages..im floored..the best thing is these r so close to the main markets and mall road.Food is good but expensive. - Dr Neharika
