“Low standard hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Hotel location and food/room service were good but everything else is terrible. In the month of December, they are providing one road heater only. No central heated rooms. Windows are not fully covered with curtains. Bad smell in the room. No shutter facility. Old fashioned TV. Overall bad experience.

Room Tip: central heater, hotel location, room service

Dear Sir,
You have written loction, food and service was good but rest was not good. These three things are there what we have to provide to our coustomer and the aminities you are asking for are of a 4 star hotel. As you have given your review you must have read reviews of our other guests as well. In those reviews some of guest have mentioned that heater is provided in our hotel and It's really hard to understand when you book a hotel you check all details of the hotel. Could you please inform me that any of our site has mentioned that it's centrally heated hotel. Our hotel is considered as good budget property so how can you except centrally heating in such economical rates. If you are a regular traveller a centrally heated hotel is not less than a 4 star category of hotel especially in hill station.

I am writing this Review bit late (as i visited the hotel during last week of April 2012 for my honeymoon ). After Reading so many good reviews of the hotel, I booked a honeymoon package directly by calling Mr Sanjay (who sits in delhi) and depositing money in the account of hotel. After depositing money Mr Sanjay immediately send me the hotel vouchers and volvo tickets by mail .Our check-in time is at 12.00 but we reached there at 7.00 in the morning and Mr. Jeet (the manager of the hotel) provide us the room without charging any extra amount. The food of the hotel is really very tasty. The behaviour of the staff is excellent. The only problem there is that the driver allocated to us Mr. Sunder is very greedy, During our visit to snowpoint, he insist us to rent the guide and clothes where his commision is fixed (these shops are charging almost double the amount as compare to other shops) however i choose some other shops & on this he started behaving very rudely and saying that we have to complete our visit in 3-4 hrs and return back. On this i immediately call Mr Sanjay and he resolved the proble. However while returing back from snow point, the driver is continously saying why u have called to delhi office etc...However the overall experience is really great and i really want to thank Mr. Sanjay for making my honeymoon really special.

We landed in Manali during the second week of December and I had booked Hotel Vintage in advance. There was a slight confusion regarding my pickup from the Volvo bustand to the hotel, but Sanjay rectified it almost immediately. I then came to know that he is based out of Delhi (couldnt meet him in Manali). The car was ready at the bus-stand and we reached the hotel. Food was superb and please ask for Hemraj who is the most courteous and ever-smiling staff we had ever met. No matter what the issue is, his smile just puts things to normalcy and he makes sincere effort to make the guests feel at home. Kudos to him! The food served is fabulous at much lesser cost. The hotel staff are very warm and try to ensure to keep you at ease.

Please ensure there are some things which you will have to take into consideration:

1. A room heater in the room doesnt mean centralized heating, but a heater with a single ligament which will not heat up the room. You can sit beside it and warm yourself.

2. Think twice before opting for the transport arranged by the hotel. We had Roshan lal, the driver, who fabulously took us to the snowy mountain peak for which we paid him extra. Thanks to him. However, he had mood swings and during the second day of our sight seeing, he seemed to be irritated as we did not opt to go to Kullu or some village where the falls and the fishing were and that he lost the chance to extract more money from us. When we were shopping at the Mall area, he was frequently calling us saying that he has to return back soon as he had some personal errands to run and that we should finish off our shopping. To make matters worse, he walked into the shop where we were getting the momentos of manali done and started hurrying us. Do not opt for this guy. In fact, if you walk across the bridge, there are plenty of auto rickshaws who would do the sight seeing at a much lesser price and with cheerful faces.

3. Hot water provided by the hotel is through geyser only. Which means that if a person finishes his/her bath to their satisfaction, the next one in queue will have to wait for the geyser to heat up and then go for the bath. Possibly, shortage of electricity in HImachal could be the reason for non-availability of a centralized water heating system. Unsure about other hotels.

On the whole, I would definitely recommend Hotel Vintage which is a budgeted and comfortable stay at Manali.

Thanks Sanjay

Regards,
Sathya

Dear Sathya Sir,

Thank you for giving your precious time and sharing your views and wonderful experiences at Hotel Vintage. It was really overwhelming to know that you were satisfied with our efforts especially with our staff members and their services. Your appreciations motivates us to work with more enthusiasm. We will keep on trying doing work to satisfy our customers.

Regarding your complaints for taxi booking, I would like to bring to your notice that we just guide our customers in booking taxi there is no association with them as such. All these taxis are from union and every taxi wala tries to get most out of the customer even if you book from anywhere and it happens every where. You have to be little alert when you deal with them. Still we will definitely keep in mind that this thing never happens again as this spoils the image of our Hotel.

Planning to visit manali for a long time and was able to do so in November 2012. On a suggestion from friend stayed at Hotel Vintage for three nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. it had an excellent location away from the hustle bustle but not so far from the main shopping arcade. We received a personalised service and all our needs are taken care of. Specially travelling with a five year kid in this wheather. On request extra blanquets were provided to us. Service Boy Hemraj was very cordiall and eager to help us all the time with a smile. As far as food is concerned, limited but preparation was good. Variety of food can be increased. Hotel people can organise certian eveing activities for the resident guests. In all, it was worth every penny spent.

Stayed at Vintage with my family for 4 nights and found the hotel very nice. Staff was less but efficient and caring. Room given to us was spacious and had good view. The amount of money we paid for the package was worth spending. Manali is majestic and Ohh… What to say about Manali. It’s a paradise and I feel during this period it blossoms more. Every thing is green and fresh, complete valley covered with clouds and cool breeze around you, you feel like you are in heaven. The one and only problem is that very limited stuff is available in the market and even in the hotels and restaurants as it’s a complete off season. Me and my wife enjoyed the atmosphere but my kids got bored as no amusements was there for them, even in club house where games and activities are there for the kids was almost closed. I would suggest visiting Manali during Oct, because at this time it was quite lonely and sometime the rain spoils your sightseeing trip which I faced. Thankfully I had an extra day to cover it. I would definitely stay at vintage and visit again to explore more about Manali….

stayed there for 3 nights in June 2012. Very helpful staff. good location. quite close to Mall road, yet far enough to avoid the noise and hustle bustle of this jam packed shopping street especially during peak season. So location, good for family but honeymooners would prefer more secluded place.

Owner is very courteous and helpful. Good food. good breakfast and even better dinner preparation. prompt service. Do include the dinner option in your stay.

Low points - Bath room doors - bolts very tight and rusty. Carpets stained at some places, no balcony even in hill view rooms.

Room Tip: hill view rooms are good.

I stayed at Vintage recently and was very satisfied with the hotel because of its quality service and excellent room. It’s a small property but really well maintained and professionally run. Hotel is approx 1 km away from mall road. In rainy season as we were in, it’s difficult to go to Mall Road if you don’t get auto or taxi. Hotel staff is very efficient and they provided us with umbrellas which made convenient for us to move around. Above all, they all have charming faces and especially whenever you interact with them, they have smiling faces and happy to serve you. Good luck & Keep it up.
