“Johnson Lodge" the most beautiful"”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Johnson Lodge is the most beautiful and well kept hotel I have ever landed in Manali. The peaceful environment and comfortable stay provided by Johnson lodge was all that one need on a weekend for making it count. The exterior was breathtaking and lush with green lawns, flowers, and trees. The interior was just as beautiful. There was plenty of space to lounge, have great food/drinks, inside and out. We had great Indian food. The staff out here is just amazing, professional hoteliers especially Ankita and her team really made my stay the best and the memorable one.
Love u all n keep doing the wonderful job. Cheers!!!!!!

I spent two nights here with my son. One on the way to our trek, and the other one on upon our return. Would recommend this highly for those who wish to be within walking distance to the core of the town, yet stay in a fairly stylish, peaceful and laid back (in a good way) place.
When walking from the mall, this is the one just before Johnson Café. Evidently, the two properties belong to the same family, but are now run differently.

Room Tip: Ask for lawn facing rooms on the 2nd floor if you have issues with climbing steps. 305 works really...

Johnson Lodge is the most beautiful and well kept hotel I have ever landed in. The exterior was breathtaking and lush with green lawns, flowers, and trees. We were greeted by a friendly, helpful staff that delt very well with our large group. The interior was just as beauiful. There was plenty of space to lounge, have great food/drinks, inside and out. We had great Indian and Italian food. We even met the Italian chef! The staff is very polite and personalbe. The cleanliness of the entire place was amazing. Extremely comfortable rooms, bathrooms and great services. Located away from the busy part of town and close to the forrest park was very nice and quiet. Within a five minute walk to shopping in New Manali. All in all I had a wonderful time there. Very pleasant. Go stay at Johnson Lodge! :) Cari Maus - Montana, U.S.A

Last month i was in Manali for a vacation with my family.we straight away walked inside Johnson Lodge and asked if they had rooms available. Luckily we got one at the first floor. The room was very commodious, designed in a very simple but artistic manner. There is a big window from where you can have great views of the mountains. The place is very near to the Mall Road yet so quiet.You won't feel that you r so near to the market. They have an alluring garden inside the lodge where you can sit in the evening n have try some of their flavory cocktails.The food at the restaurant is divine.We liked the food so much that we never went out to any food corner. The best charm of the property is their staff. We would like to thank Nitin at the front office.We always saw him with a sweet smile on the face. And also Ankit and Vishal. I really admire the efforts of their PR girl Ankita who assisted us with the places to see in Manali. All you people are the biggest assets to this property.If anytime in life i visit Manali again, I would only recommend Johnson Lodge.You people are doing a great job. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: go first for the floor even others are good..
