Hill stations are becoming more and more crowded and commercialsed each passing day. For those of us coming from Metro cities that is exactly the thing one does not want. We come here for relaxing ourselves from the busy schedule we have..That is exactly what this place provides..
In Aleo Manali just 700-800 meters from mall road, not that far but making all the difference. Away from the hustle bustle of the mall, the hotel surrounded by apple trees and flowers offers a great view of the mountains.
The hotel is divided into cottages and normal rooms. My friends and i prefer the cottages as they are beautifully build and super clean. The cottage even has a garden in the front where one can sip tea/coffee when having conversation in the sun for hours.
The owner, Mrs Sharma, manages the operations herself. Also she makes some excellent chicken curry and dal and her hand made lal chawal (red rice, a specialty in the region) are just not be missed at any cost.
A special mention to Inder, who I initially confused as the son of Mr and Mrs Sharma, works over here taking care of each and every need of yours. Trust me you cannot get a better host than him.
The rooms available here are of all categories. Just tell what kind you need and you'll be given as per your wish. Cottages again are my personal favorite.
Overall very economical and peaceful stay is what you can expect from SERAJ HOME STAY.
I'm definitely returning back.. soon.. very soon.
