“The most welcoming place in Mussoorie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

La Villa Bethany is the best place to stay in Mussoorie. Bethany provides delicious home food and maintain a totally hygienic kitchen. The beds are really comfortable, the bathrooms are spotless, there is a wonderful hot shower, western style toilets, and all the other amenities of a top hotel. The family that runs Bethany has opened a wonderful library, common room, and dining room for guests to relax. You can sit on the verandah and enjoy stunning mountain sunsets with dinner. The hotel is eco and socially friendly - utilizing solar water and local products produced by women's groups. Stay at Bethany!

Room Tip: The two suite rooms are in a separate building. The upstairs suite offers the most privacy. That bei...

Dear Johanna,

Thank you for taking out the time to review us and I am very sorry for such a delayed response. However you would be glad to know that this time has been well spent in making "your home" more comfortable for all its future guests! We now have a few additions to the house which I am sure you would like.

We have also been busy in taking forward our commitment to the environment and the local community further and are working extensively with the close by villages that were affected by the floods last year. These efforts are now yielding results and we have managed to positively impact lives of more that 500 families. We would love to share all this with you in your future visits.

Looking forward to welcoming you home once again. Take care & God Bless.

warm regards
Sunita

La Villa Bethany is an outstanding residence that creates a home atmosphere miles up in the himalayas. I would suggest for anyone looking to travel to Mussoorie this guest house is the place you must stay. The food is exquisite, the rooms are cozy and warm, and most of all the owners and staff make for an overall excellent stay. I stayed at La Villa Bethany for around two months while I study Hindi, and without a doubt a will stay here each time I return to Mussoorie. I cannot exude enough about the great hospitality, so please consider this residence for your future travels.

I really enjoyed my stay at La Villa Bethany in Landour while taking just short of two weeks of Hindi classes at the nearby language school. It was my great fortune to book my stay at Bethany, which allowed me to both study and spend my free time in a wonderfully comfortable, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere. The accommodations themselves are very clean, comfortable, and beautiful; my friend and I both commented that it felt like staying at an English cottage of a relative, that's how comfortable and at home we felt. The sourcing of all the amenities is done with the utmost care to the environment and nearby communities. The atmosphere suits the hosts well: we were glad to make a friend in Sunita and enjoyed playing with little Shrushti as her adopted "Didis" (older sisters). I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and hope to return soon to visit Sunita, Nanu, Shrushti and the staff, and hopefully to meet Amarjeet this time around.

This is a stunning place, from your balcony there are amazing views of the valley down to Deheradun. It so peaceful and relaxing far away from the hustle and bustle of Indian city life. A short walk away on a clear day you can see the snow topped HImalayas.

Sunita is a great hostess and really looks after her guests. Our room was beautifully furnished with every amenity, we particularly appreciated having free wifi.

We would not hesitate to recommend this as the place to stay in Mussorie.

We recently visited La Villa Bethany and stayed for a week. It was a pleasure staying with Amarjeet and Sunita. La Villa Bethany is a quaint mountain villa located on the side of one of the hills of Mussoorie. The quiet mornings offered spectacular views of the surrounding area. The accommodations were surprising, both Amarjeet's and Sunita's years of experience and background in the hospitality industry were evident. The rooms were well appointed and felt like home. The food was another experience all in it's self. Every day we looked forward to what the staff would prepare for either lunch or dinner. They set high standards that are hard to match. (The Brownie desert was my FAVORITE!!)

I would easily recommend La Villa Bethany to any foreigner or family visiting the area.

What a wonderful experience, and a culinary adventure.

Amarjeet and Surita, being in the hospitality business before, brought a touch of home, professional service and warmness to Mussoorie and to their guesthouse. They are well informed, and give a balanced review of places to visit and things to do. They serve Indian cuisine as well as cuisine known to the tongue in faraway places such as South Africa where I originate from. The view from the rooms and the dining rooms is splendid. I found the books of Ruskin Bond in their library and bought a few. My children do enjoy reading that.

Dear Amarjeet and Sunita - warm regards from South Africa - Bloemfontein. Have fun! You will see me again. Elizabeth Adendorff

A night stay was hardly justice but what a place! And what hosts! Fantastic location, excellent accommodation and food. It could not have been better. Anybody heading out in this direction - go and check it out and you will not regret the experience of staying at "home"! I am giving 5* to Fitness Center - where will you find miles of hill track to walk to keep fit!
