Hotel is bit difficult to find as its located between Dharamshala & Mcleodganj. "You gotta Kidding me...." thats what I said to myself when I first saw this hotel. Its completely isolated from main town. Rusty gate, old care taker, dense forest & "Purani Haweli" Kind of look. "This could be haunted house" I thought first. In-fact I thought I should return back. But I saw someone coming towards me. It was one of the member from hotel just came to help me out.
Once inside hotel I saw other travelers which immediately gave some comfort.
When we arrived at main dining hall it was pleasant surprise. It was absolutely beyond expectation. Everything maintain in this property is artistic & thoughtful.
Rooms as such don't have view of valley / mountains as its surrounded by big trees. We stayed in room no 7 which was above dining hall.
Rooms are completely made of wood which is neatly polished & looks very royal. Rooms itself are small but has very good quality. ( Its look like wooden flooring but its actually wood like carpet)
Toilet & bathrooms were small but clean with no leakage. Hot water available 24 hours. Complementary Soaps , towels provided were of good quality.
Now the Best Part : They provide excellent food. Its on order basis & you have to give order in advance. All food cooked is fresh. Food is served with excellent manners . Arrangement of plates / food was excellent. Must say have good royal touch.
Rooms are provided with good quality heaters with no extra charges.
Staff is very helpful & friendly . In-fact we were treated like family members.
Location which once looked haunted now started looking peaceful,quite & reviving. One can take a shortcut rout to Dharamshala from hotel which takes 10-15 mins walk down hill.
One can also climb to Mcleodganj which takes 20-30 mins up hill walk. cabs are available on call.
It was very pleasant & memorable stay at Clouds End Villa.
