Possibly one of the best hotels in Manali, The Johnson Lodge mustn't be confused with its similarly named cousin Jimmy Johnson's Lodge that is located right next door.
It feels just like a lodge - lots of wood, a rustic ambiance and innate warmth about it. The rooms are massive (we stayed in 201 and the bed was so huge it could sleep a family of 4 comfortably). Then there's the superb bath with all the modern fitting and constant hot water that is much needed in this cold region. The staff at the front desk as friendly - always smiling and willing to assist. Similarly with the wait staff and helpers.
The restaurant is superb - a tad cold as the fire-places weren't lit, but otherwise the perfect place to unwind in the evenings. They have an Italian chef who makes some of the best pasta and dessert. She even goes one up on the other restaurants and bakes her own bread. But if you're a small eater make sure you order less cos they serve Italian size portions here - HUGE!!!
The grounds are perfectly maintained with adequate parking and space for kids to run around and play. Located on Circuit House Road its ideally located, close enough to Mall Road and all the local sights.
