We stayed at the cottage in May 2012. The location was very good and rooms were well kept .The food quality was excellent .
We actually went to see around Manali,but being here,we didnt feel to go anywhere else.The owner Mr.Rajeev was very much helpful to us and we will get a feel that we landed in a
home away from home.
They way they are treating is awesome, need to say special thanks to Mr.Shyam for serving the food .

We stayed 3 nights at Upadhyay Cottages. The title says it all. If you are looking for good value for money, then, Upadhyay cottages is the place to be. The location of the cottages are very beautiful among the orchards. The cottages are maintained spick and span. The owner Mr. Rajeev Upadhay plays perfect host and takes care of all your needs. Provides pretty good guidance on the local activities and sight seeing, The cottages are so nice and you can actually see the snow capped mountains all around from the cottages. Great place to just sit around, relax, read a book. We definitely recommend the Upadhyay cottages whole heartedly to anyone looking to have a great time and stay in and around Kullu - Manali.

It was much more beautiful there than we thought. It was a lot more cozy and maintained than it looked in the photos. We stayed there for 3 days and had a lot of fun. We actually went to see around Manali but being there we didn't feel like going anywhere else. We took 1 bedroom cottage as we were just two, but we had a huge exclusive garden for us with an easy swing. We had to really force ourselves to actually go out of it to visit other places around Manali.

Food was also home made and healthy. Mr. Upadhyay (owner of that place) was very cooperative and friendly.

The place was overall very peaceful and absolutely close to nature. We had best of our times there.

Room Tip: All the cottages are awesome, choose as per your need.

We chose Upadhyay Cottages after a high five recommendation from my friends. I always prefer to stay in a place where I can feel the local people. Often hospitality aspects won't be as good as we expect. But this one is far beyond expectations. We initially planned for star hotels, but we both are so happy that we chose Upadhyay cottages over hotel rooms.

Scenic beauty we get over here is beyond words. Perfect blend of greenery, silence, ambience, hospitality, cleanliness, reachability (they picked us from Katrain)

I am reading the review of archana3108 who have been staying here since 1998, and back her review in every aspect. A real "home away from home". What better way of explanation. Truly feels like our own home. Rajeev Upadhyay is so helpful in planning our 5 days in Kulu - Manali.

Home made Aaloo Parathas, Garam Masala Tea, food served here is yummy as well. Still have to meet the cook who made us those grand food.

Room Tip: Cottage-1 is what we got and those are the one bed room ones. We had a wonderful view of Himalayas f...

We have been coming here since 1998 and have seen the resort grow bit by bit in front of us. From one cottage to a resort now. Ever since we came first we must have stayed here at least 50 times. It is an addiction.
The scenic beauty around the resort is like a huge painting. On a clear night it's as though one is amongst the stars. And when you add the log fire dinners to that, the effect is heavenly.
Once you've stayed here you just don't want to stay anywhere else. Right from the owners to their families and the Staff, they are all so welcoming, cheerful and helpful. That is why we call it our "home away from home".

Room Tip: room no 1 is good.

Visited Katrain and stayed at Upadhyay Cottages from 26th to 28th of March 2012. The overall courtesy & attitude of the owners and staff exceeded our expectations. The location was awesome, rooms were well kept, spotlessly clean and were provided with a kitchen complete with a refrigerator & gas connection for a quick cup of tea etc & adding to the affordability. The food quality was well above average & the service was excellent (Shyambhai nedds to be complimented on this front) The food preparation is monitored & supervised by the chhoti bahu of the family which speaks in the taste of food served!! The friendly and helpful nature of Mr Rajeev added to ur comfort level. Mr Brijlal Upadhyay (Rajeev's father) obliged us by taking us for a sunrise trip to his apple / plum orchard at the hill top describing enroute how the area had evolved since his childhood. A truly memorable trip for the sheer scenic beauty & for a thrilling cup of tea which was served to us by the caretaker of the orchard Raju in his shanty. The location, cleanliness and the wonderful nature of this family makes me wholeheartedly and strongly recommend this place for a comfortable & relaxed holiday & for a completely different and satisfying experience as compared to just a hotel...

The best part of this hotel is that , it doesnt resemble and feel to be one. It gives a home outside home feeling. The reason being it is neither in Kullu nor in Manali. It is in between the two. Located amidst greenery, a silence , a calm prevails in the cottage. The hill view wakes you and makes you feel refreshing.

As people from city are fed up with Multi-storeyed structures, this gives a perfect setting for a cottage life amidst nature. The cottages are well equipped with heater, kitchen , fridge , TV. The pricing is very reasonable considering the facilties.

The best part in the cottage is the food and the quality of service . Rotis and Parathas never were this tastier in my life . Special thanks to Shyambabu for the excellent service..

Rajeev ensures that you dont miss any of the landmarks in the place . He personally plans the visits during the stay and arranges transport for the same.

Overall, a very fulfilling and relaxing honeymoon . Felt very happy and pleased in my decision of choosing Upadhyay cottages when leaving the place .
