We were there for a business conference for 3 nights. The rooms were extremely spacious and the lobby too was very warm and inviting. The best place was the open terrace which had an awesome view of the entire valley. Especially at night, with the whole town lit up, the view was really breathtaking. The hotel had arranged for some interesting entertainment for our group, which was really good. Food was upto the mark, as expected from a hotel in North India. Their pub by the bowling alley though a tad small, has a very interesting decor. They have a huge game room, with pool tables, etc. where we spent one afternoon. Next to that is a small and cosy library too.
The staff was very courteous, and the hotel runs as a well oiled machine. Very satisfactory a stay
Perfect in all means
the most picturesque location in the outskirts of Mussoorie with breathtaking views of the hill station.
Though located away from the main approach road to the hill station, a periodic shuttle service is provided by the Hotel to Mussoorie for the guests.
The rooms itself are exquisitely decorated and well furnished. The terrace garden is a real treat.
Certainly the best location for a hotel, but a bit costly.
I live in Melbourne, Australia. I visited Dehra Dun, my hometown, after a long time. So my father and I (my mother couldn't make it) went up to JP Manor for 1 night. We reached at around 8 pm in the evening.
1. The small JP Manor sign/board by the main road indicating a sharp right turn up the mountain was not fluroscent - so could not see the sign at all at night.
2. The road was narrow - only one car-width. There was no barricade at the edge of the mountainside, and any car or bus could easily slip into the ravine below. For a 5-star hotel, JP Manor doesn't invest in neighbouring roads/approach and signage.
3. 3 kms further up, we actually missed the entrance of the hotel because the big signpost was facing towards the customers who would have approach the hotel coming down-hill (from the hill station of Mussoorie), rather than those of us who were driving up-hill (from Dehra Dun). When we mentioned this to senior manager at the reception, he defended this by the following "logic": "most of our customers come down-hill from Mussoorie, not up-hill from Dehra Dun." Wow. Brilliant logic. Zero marketing/ customer service.
4. In general, don't expect mobile phone coverage in the hotel - no reception in the rooms.
5. The hallway carpets were dirty, smelly and damp. They claim to renovate soon.
6. The service staff are polite, but for a 5-star hotel, speak poor English.
7. The newspaper didn't turn up in the morning after reminding them 4 times.
8. The bedspreads had old stains on them.
9. The bathroom didn't have an exhaust fan. Cutting costs/ poor design, for a 5 star.
10. The hot water was barely lukewarm - so didn't have to turn up the cold at all.
11. There isn't a shower-curtain or a glass door with the bath-tub - all the shower water spills out on to the bathroom floor, making it slippery and dangerous. Poor design for a 5-star.
12. There is no DVD player, in a standard room.
13. In the morning, at the breakfast, we asked the chef for scrambled eggs with tomotoes, onions - the works. He served other customers (who were behind me in the queue) and then finally got around to my order 20 minutes later, and served me plain eggs. Incidently, when I had given him the order, he had repeated the order after me, thereby confirming it. So don't know why he served plain eggs with no tomatoes and onions.
14. At the breakfast table, there were no napkins either.
15. Worst, when we gave feedback to the Reception Manager, he quietly received it, but refused to provide a decent discount for our 3-star experience.
16. By the way, the customer crowd is not elegant and classy, but mostly loud-boorish ones. If you think this is a Taj or an Oberoi, or a Hyatt, Marriott, think again.
17. This hotel was priced at Rs 11,000 or 244 USD per standard room per night. This room is not worth that money.
18. The good things: Great views, and great food , polite staff
