We were 3 couples and went to Ranikhet as our hotel booked by Makemytrip was some 2 star cottages "Cosmos Himalyan Villas". We reached Ranikhet and it took us 3 hours to find that "Cosmos Himalyan Villas" as we went to see the cottages from inside we came to know that cottages were closed for off season and only One 3 bedroom cottage was opened for us which was also not cleaned and there was only 1 caretaker for us and this property was very far from the main city, so we decided not to stay as we were the only couple in that cottages and that peoperty was really shabby from inside and from outside too. So we called Makemytrip and told them to change our hotel as we don't want to stay there....later there was no response from MMt we looked on internet and we came to know about this "WEST VIEW HOTEL", and we all decided to go there. We reached there and this hotel was out of the world as it made totally in British style we saw the room and decided to stay there for 2 night. We really had fun of our life...this is the best property in Ranikhet if you want to stay. Bedrooms are nice and clean, food is awesome, tasty and mouthwatering. Easily accessible and close to the city. There are lot many thins to do in West View like you can play cricket, baddi, you can do bournefire...amazing place to stay. 200% recommended.
