“Red apples and a gurgling river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend this September 2013 before proceeding to Leh.

The place, tucked away behind Club House in Old Manali, was easy to find as the two of us walked with our heavy backpacks from the bus stop. It was a good 20 min trek. But after sitting in the bus for the entire night from Delhi, walking was a welcome change. The climate made it even better.

The bus was a bit late. So it was great to get a call from Raj Sharma (host and dost) asking about our whereabouts and what time we would reach. He welcomed us and gave us the best possible room (top 2nd floor, last room). The view was 3 sided, snow capped mountains from each window. Beds were soft and nice. Paranthas were yummy with an unhealthy share of butter, curd and pickle. You could pick juicy apples fresh from the orchard at the entrance. And of course, there was an open library and free Wi-Fi.

On Raj's insistence, I read a photo journal of army life in ladakh written by his ex boss. It was a lovely read to say the least.

But the best part about the stay was the sound of the gurgling river at night, even as you sleep. And the misty mountains playing hide and seek with the quiet moon. God, I miss Manali.

In short, wherever you visit, whatever you see, Redhouse Cafe is the place to be at, in Manali. :)

We are British expats with three small children. We wanted somewhere child friendly with a garden and we did not want to break the budget. We stayed for a week at the end of October and it was utterly fantastic. Our room had mountain views from three sides, it was spacious and we all were comfortable. Good hot water supply. The staff we so good with the children, the food excellent and we celebrated Diwali with a bonfire and fire works with both locals and guests in the garden.

Thanks so much Red house café - you are a great bunch!

Hi,

All I wanted to say is - My First and Last Choice in Manali would be RedHouse Cafe. Can never forget the Memories I had. Awesome Cheese Omlet and Bon Fire. Will never find such a friendly gesture. Nice view all around.

Thanks RedHouse !! :)

From,
Sandeep

Stayed two nights recently at the Red House Café during a week-long motorcycle trip through Himalchal Pradesh with friends. Road much of the day and arrived tired and happy at the Red House to be greeted by Raj and his staff and a couple of cold drinks, great music, and excellent food. Enjoyed fresh local trout the first night and after a ride up to the Rohtang Pass, mutton curry, the next. The great food was shared around a crackling campfire. Raj has an eclectic mix of music and even will sing a song or two himself as the night wears on. Highly recommend the Red House Café as an Oasis in the midst of Manali.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room as they are a bit more isolated with a nice porch and view down onto the ga...

This is a nice inn where you will get best of the food and warm, cordial and friendly atmosphere. Only difficulties may be the 34 stairs.
View from the room is excellent. It is the best place to relax your mind in the lap of nature. Sound of the river from balcony is really a nice experience.

Visited RedHouse Cafe the last time I was in Manali with my clients on a Motorcycle Tour and fell in love with the place.

Right from the entry, up a set of stairs from the road, to the entry gate with its Sign... the first thing which you experience is the music... what an amazing collection of music! The next thing you take in is that table with a pile of books on. You like one, pick it up and read... the next thing to catch your eye would be the sign which says "Disaster Area." You guessed it right... its the pass table of the kitchen, but that is where the sign loses all its meaning... I have never in my life had egg sandwiches which tasted so nice. Loved the Liquid Sunshine Sandwich, which was my staple for breakfast for the two days we spent here. Yogi, the guy behind the counter dishes out yummy dishes one after another and Raj keeps you entertained with his anecdotes, experiences and in the evenings, with his guitar and Live Singing session...

A triple whammy of good food, nice and neat rooms and amazing hospitality! Definitely my first choice for staying in Manali for sure.

Room Tip: 1st n 2nd Floor rooms for the views, Ground floor rooms for the proximity to the garden and the kitc...
