West view is a heritage hotel owned by lady based in Delhi which is also my city. I have been to West View for 2 days from 11-Jul-14 to 13-Jul-14 with my 4 friends and my experience has been more than awesome. The best thing of the hotel is its location. Away from busy roads and noise It is surrounded by beautiful pine trees forest which makes one feel very close to nature. One can enjoy a walk in the morning or evening walk in the forest which is mesmerizing.
If i talk about the rooms and ambiance I can easily say that it is close to perfect. Rooms are well maintained, spacious and gives you a glimpse of British era. The second best thing about the hotel is its staff and hospitality. Staff is very nice, helpful. We all were girls and staff members and the manager over there (Mr Tanwal) helped us to get any stuff if we wanted from the main market and also guided us about the places to visit nearby. Staff like Mr Bachharam accompanied us for a walk in the evening in to the forest to ensure our security and safety. All these small gestures made us feel at home. Food is hygienic and of good quality and the restaurant staff (Mr. Prakash and team) is so active when it comes to serve the food that they will place the required item on your table before you could ask for it.
Though the hotel does not serves alcohol but it is not a problem for those who wants to have it as the main market is just 3-4 km from hotel from where you can easily get it and you will be allowed to bring it in the hotel provided you have it within your room.
Last but not the least the two wonderful dogs (Jay and Jimmi) who are very playful and friendly they will even accompany you in the forest and will add more adventure to your trip if you are a pet lover.
Overall I would suggest if you ever plan a trip to Ranikhet then West View would be the best choice you should go for.
