Amazing hotel.. We had been there on our honeymoon.. And this hotel offered us everything that was needed.
What a hospitality by all staffs.. And the chef needs to be appreciated as well .. Yummy food .. We loved it so much .. The menu list can be appended with more options as ppl stayin for 3 days or more are likely to get bored of the less options! But whatever was offered from the menu was lovely! This is an area of imporvement.
I could not say a negative point about Applecountry and will surely wish to stay here again if i travel to Manali.. And ppl who travel to Manali can definitely try this place! I am sure you will love it!

Excellent hotel. It is currently the highest hotel in Manali and offers free accommodation and food for guests' drivers.

We had a great stay and it was made more memorable due to the excellent honeymoon package that we took. The staff was eager to please.

Points to note:
Only vegetarian food served
No air conditioning available as Manali is a hill station
Key needs to submitted in reception for room cleaning

Dear Reader, Thanks for reading my review.

I statyed at this hotel with my spouse in Aug'2010. This was my first trip to this part of India and hence required lot of research.
Based on the reviews from friends and internet, i had reached out to couple of resorts and requested them to provide quotation etc. Apple team had impressed me right from the day1, their response had been absolutely great and i found them very flexible. They have not only provided me a good deal, but also helped me to plan my completely travel itenary. They have provided me very useful information about the mean of transport etc, which would not have been so easier to get otherwise.
When I arrived at the hotel, i found that they have automatically upgraded me to a higher category room, as there was availability due to off-season at no addl cost. It was a very pleasant stay at the hotel and i would strongly recommend you this hotel.

In a gist, below are the positives and negatives as I found in my stay:

Positives:
- Very well behaved and courteous staff
- Good Location (with a great lawn)
- Value for money, in terms of luxury vs cost
- Very hygenic and well maintained
- Decent add-on faciliites - healthclub, massage centre and the bar
- Good travel desk for local sightseeing etc (ask for driver mohan, who had been a wonderful guy)
- Awesome food

Negatives / Scope for improvement:
- The location is ~3kms from the town centre and its on the top of the hill. It will test your fitness for sure if you want to take a walk and will cost you Rs. 70/- one way to get out of the hotel (but hotel reception will help you by arranging an auto on request). This is the addl price you need to pay to stay on top of the moutain :-)
- I missed an umbrella in the lawn. It had decent seating with good moutains view - but since it rained most of the time, i wasn't able to sit in the lawn for long time
- Food is very good, but they have a limited menu. If you stay for long, i am sure you will find it limited beyond Day3 or so. Also, they serve only vegetarian, hence non-veggies might be unhappy

To sum up, i had a great stay at Apple and would definitely go back to them should i visit Manali again.

Tks... Phani Shankar

i stayed here for two days & one night. IT Has a good garden where I used to read for 3-4 hrs a day amidst really good views ... more of the hills. Many people before said that market being far away is a disadvantage but not really. You can easily walk it down (its a downhill path) and take an autorickshaw for 50 Rs. on the way back up. Also, it is 10 min walk to Hadimba temple. Very good food and efficient room service Surprisingly, it had a discotheque which was functional.

Nowhere close to the hustle bustle of the busy Manali market (thankfully). Has a good garden where I used to read for 3-4 hrs a day amidst really good views of the hills. Many people before said that market being far away is a disadvantage but not really. You can easily walk it down (its a downhill path) and take an autorickshaw for 50 Rs. on the way back up. Also, it is 10 min walk to Hadimba temple. Very good food (though vegetarian only) and efficient room service (even drinks from the bar). Surprisingly, it had a discotheque which was functional.

Disadvantages are room size (though most hotels in Manali have same room sizes) and only vegetarian food (but we always had lunch/dinner outside so it didnt matter to us).
