“A quiet retreat at the edge of nowhere”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

a very narrow path leads to the location that is at the westend of this station. The resort was made very well but maintenance issues have got the better of. The rooms are large and look down into the valley. The rooms are pretty far off from the lobby and dining areas and is hard for septagenarians. Food is very average and so is room service. Gettig to the town square takes effort. But enjoy long walks and soak in nature. Water may be an issue sometimes.

Recently i have made a booking thru a travel agent for sterling resort mussoorie, unfortunately the day when i have reached and was to check in it was heavy snow on the roads and vehicle what we had hired has not made its way to the main centre so that we can manage to get any other convence, we had to walk 1.5 kms, towards the mall road, and kept calling the resort manager but they have not even responded, or showed any courtesy to send any alternate vehicle to shift us to their resort as the booking was made, they said from mall road it is 3 km away to their resort, and roads are blocked due to snow, i have called travel agent who has made booking, after he has shown interest the resort person called and said they would arrange some hotel near the mall road to stay at night, but the property was substandard and kept charging for each and other service, as we had to stay for a night we had to pay, next day morning i called to check if he can send any vehicle i was informed that by 9 their drivers would come and they will arrange but till 12 pm they have not arranged. and due to bad wheather condition i had to cut my 1 day booking i have asked the resort person to refund, but he says as it is done in pacakage and if you want or dont you have to stay in the hotel till there are some good signs of clearance, i didnt wanted to take a chance as i had my further schedule designed.
but please beware of this property if you are stuck then they would not respond.

Room Tip: Beware as there is no Hospitality

The hotal is good. Rooms are very well done. Food is great. But the only problem is the location of the hotel. The lane which goes towards hotel from market is very narrow. Another major problem is climbing up & down the steep steps for reaching your rooms.

The resort is located on the hill slopes with a good view

Finding it is a little tough but the staff did a good job of guiding me over the phone, the last 2 odd kms is a literally one way narrow road; luckily did not face any vehicle coming from the opposite side

It is quite a walk from the reception/parking to the room which is downhill; on the way back it is quite a climb so if you are with elders make sure they have the fitness to do it; else they would not want to go out of the room more than once a day

The rooms are big with average maintenance; the rooms with the best view unfortunately are not yet ready for occupying though the infrastructure building looks quite a few years old

Room Tip: check in earlier than regular check in time to choose the best room

I have stayed here with family recently (end of October-November) for three nights.. Beautiful view from the rooms. Rooms are big enough and well maintained. They have room heater provided so your stay is comfortable. They do have geyser in the bathroom. Nice view from the balcony as well. The only problem is the steps you have to climb, they do not have elevators. You may have to climb around a 100+ steps to reach the reception/restaurant. So if you have elderly with you who cannot climb steps you are in trouble.

The location of the hotel was a little inside from the main road, not too far and taxis are available, so not to worry.

Food was good. They have buffet breakfast and dinner. Lunch we ordered from the menu. They had some food deal going on, so food wasn't too expensive. Overall it was good staying there. I would go back there again.

I had visited this place during my honeymoon. Getting much needed privacy, this was was a blessing in disguise. Being away from all the hustle-bustle of Mussourie. Though a bit far from the market area, the walk is a pleasure itself. Rooms were clean & a level of hygiene was always maintained by the staff. Entire staff was very helpful & courteous to us. They also told us everything we needed to know about sight-seeing & ensured we werent overcharged anywhere.

Room Tip: Try getting rooms away from the reception as night-time would hold a great sight of the Doon valley.
