“A place that lives up to its name & reputation...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I was on a break after 2 yrs with my wife, and was looking for a place which would offer a special experience - almost a 2nd honeymoon. That's when I came across- Pause@Manali at tripadvisor and after going through their website www.pauseatmanali.com, there's only one word that came to my mind - Passion. I was not disappointed when I visited this place, and i am happy I chose Pause for a vacation.

The location, the thought that goes behind the arrangement on every floor, the common balcony from 1st floor, the bean bags, the rocking chairs, dining tables on 1st & 2nd floor, PS2 setup on ground floor in the common seating area.. everything has been done very very tastefully. You get a feeling that the owner could have squeezed in some extra rooms, but they didn't do so just so to maintain the charm of the place.

We had bit of a problem as the room which we were initially offered did not get much sunlight, and were promptly shifted to another room, which had ample sunlight! The staff is very friendly and courteous, and the food was really good. We initially had a booking for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4 nights here. Though the hotel is a bit far from the Mall Road, the beautiful property and lovely views more than make up for it.

The owner Manu - is a very pleasent person to interact with and a very helpful adviser for someone visiting Manali for the first time. It does seem that he is into this business for more than just making money - read Passion.

I would highly recommend Pause for anyone looking for a relaxing break, and look forward to visiting Pause again in future!

We went to Pause @ Manali in July 2012. When we reached there it was raining like anything. Manu Seth & his team helped us very much to reach the place and arrange our things. Many people doesn't know this place, bit difficult to find this place as it is away from the market and other hotels.

The room was comfortable, but during rainy season you will see lot of insects outside the room. We found lots of dead insects, but they cleaned it once we informed them. The area is surrounded by full of fruit trees, such as apple, peach, plum, pears. etc.

Food was the only disappointment, it was not up to our taste, still the 3 guys in the service team (sorry forgot their name) trying their best to provide whatever possible and make us happy.

We also faced the power cut problem in 2-3 times, maybe due to rainy season, but it didn't bother us much.

Over all, very good place to stay with good view, and away from the cities hustle bustle.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for leaving your feedback. During July the whole of Kanyal area had electricity problem as that area was served with one phase connection, couple of months back its been replaced with 3 phase power lines due to which power cuts now are very minimal.

We take our food preparation very seriously and have never had any complaints from guest. We are really sorry about not been able to meet your expectation on food taste, we will look into this more seriously.

We do hope to welcome you soon again in future.

Regards

Went to Pause@Manali after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. Would like to thank Rohit, Manu, Jatin, Manoj and the rest of the staff for making our stay pleasant. Everything was excellent: food, room, location, service!! Would recommend to everyone.

Would request team@pause to put few signs on the way up as it was little difficult locating the hotel the first time around.

Wonderful experience at this scenic property. what a magnificent view of the serene beauty of the mountain range of Manali. The Hampta falls straight in front of the hotel. Would like to congratulate Mr.Rohit and Mr.Manu for the efforts put in for designing the hotel and maintaining the standards of hospitality and service. All of them..... Jiten,Joginder and Mohan all are on their toes to cater to your needs. Thanks to Mr.Manu for the couple of hours spent on the last day of the 6 day stay at Pause@manali.Would definitely look forward to have another vacation at this place. Special remark to the food.. although with a limited cuisine you cannot avoid cherishing the delicacies prepared by Joginder. Even quite far from the main mall road you enjoy staying here just because of the service and the supercool fantastic view of the manali city and the mountains. I would definitely like to stay here during June -July when the premises is full of apples which would be a colourful sight. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

This is my honeymoon trip and I was very concerned about everything.
By the end of the trip myself and my wife felt very much satisfied in choosing the Pause.

It was Rohit who helped me all the way in clarifying things and impressed me with his honest answers which made to choose and book Pause for 4 nights and 3 day package.
Rohit is an excellent guide and marketing guy based in Delhi to take care of bookings.

Then comes Manu,who is Rohit's brother who is taking care of Pause and its guests all our stay without any compromise in the quality of food, accommodation and service.

Once I got down at Manali bus stand from Volvo bus,it was Jitin who received and welcomed me with the car and driver Sundar.

Then we were taken to Pause which is around 3 kms from Manali bus-stand.

Manu welcomed us gracefully and made sure we reached the right place having one of the greatest locations in Manali.

We were offered a balcony room in level 2,which gives an excellent view of Manali from Balcony.
Soon we reached the room,we were offered hot tea.

Later after good sleep,we were introduced to Sundar who was the driver for us all the 4 days.

As time passes,we felt like being in home with good caring people around us.

Everyday and every time,we were surprised by their service and quality.

To wrap up the story here..

Rohit-Good Guide for the trip who helped in guiding my whole trip and plan.

Manu-Excellent manager for the Pause and its guests who know very well how to impress the guests with the great service.

Jitin-Wonderful caretaker who helps Manu in achieving the quality service.
His humbleness and efforts in providing all the facilities certainly needs to be deserved.

Sundar-
Safe and good attitude driver with excellent driving skills make sure you enjoy the locations with additional tips and quality advice in shopping.
One of the best attitude drivers I have ever seen.
Pause should encourage him.

Jikendar(Sorry if the name is wrong)-
He gave us feel home food with the quality of a very good star hotel dining experience.especially the tandoori was marvellous.

From the beginning to end,Pause team made us felt comfortable and happy.
And its true I felt missing them for some days.

Deserving services:
Immediate provision of heaters when my wife felt very cold
Surprised us in the Decoration of bed,cake cutting and special dinner on one of the nights
Helped in the laundry of our clothes
Helped in packing our shopped items in a box

Thanking a lot the entire pause team for yours excellent service.
Will meet you guys again for sure.................

Nice Place – give a feel of home away from home , spacious room, comfortable furnishing large open lobbies, Enjoy Morning tea with Family or friends in spacious balcony with view of snow covered mountains and green pine forest , sound of river make you feel so close to nature..
And the best is personal touch by professional Very Cooperative, informative always smiling team of Rohit and Manu at Pause make us feel at ease in first go. They are always available for us/guest even before the the start of journey or you can say pre planning stages, there professional attributes with personal touch make you feel simply relaxed and in actual holiday mood.
The food served is delicious and very well managed keeping in mind the need of adults, kids , veg/ non veg. hygienic and well served
Manu himself take the initiative to guide and accompany us a tracking via pine trees jungles, apple orchids and traditional villages during day. Followed by a barbecue and bone fire in a light cold evening , all in all good experience .
We Thank Rohit and Manu Seth along with the team Pause for making our stay a wonderful experience, and wish them all the best , love to be there for relaxed holidays again soon.
