We stayed at this place for 3 nights in Oct '12 and expectedly had a wonderful experience. It did not seem like a typical hotel but a home away from home. The pros and cons below :
1) Service Staff - Always on their toes, ever ready to help, dedicated
2) Hotel location - Just off mall road and still in a very quiet location with great valley views
3) The Room sizes were quite large. Bathrooms are larger in some rooms. Olden style but all modern amenities available
4) Brillant Food
5) Free shuttle to mall road - Very useful. Available through the day
6) Preset room heaters - Was a Must and it made the stay comfortable
7) Lovely view from the rooms. Ice capped mountains visible on a clear day. Loved the peaceful environment
1) Some people might not like this set-up as it does not give you a "Hotel feel".
2) Not much activities apart from the pool table/library
3) A little pricy given that similar category hotels are quite reasonable
I must highlight the services of Mr.Pyare Singh. Treated us like family members. Has a "Yes" to everything. One of the reasons behind the popularity/success of this hotel.
You have to stay here if in mussorrie.
Tip of the Review :
1) Dont miss a meal at Chick Chocolate on mall road (Picture palace end)
2) A long evening walk down Camel's back Road is a must. Nature at its best.
