“Only for location and average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

No service at all were served water in left over bottles of previous guest
Had to wait for food to be served
Made it into a bad bet for money
It us better to spend on well know place like Rosemount had great memories of the place from my last visit

Only plus ➕ is location
And that is all for Ranikhet

We had gone to this hotel in may 2014. We stayed in the suite rooms which were very good.view from the verandah was very nice. Only problem is the food which was just average.
A little more higene in the kitchen and it would be great. But overall good experience.

Room Tip: Suite rooms are the best. Delux rooms are just like a box!

I had visited this place with my family in the month of May and we had an amazing time. Having booked 2 deluxe rooms, I quickly decided to update to suites knowing that they were vacant. In spite of the price difference, the suites were definitely worth it. The porch in front of each suite overlooking a beautiful garden and offering more than a decent chance of catching a glimpse of the Himalayan peaks does tempt you. We were really lucky to get a peak on a summer morning but winters would definitely be your best bet. Food at this hotel, though all vegetarian, was extremely good and hygienic. A special mention goes to the staff at this hotel who are extremely courteous and are willing to help you out in every possible manner. This more than made up for the only 2 drawbacks. First, locating the property - they literally have just 4 signboards across Ranikhet, 3 of them being near the hotel itself. And second, not warning low floor vehicles against opting for the first of 2 approach roads.

Room Tip: There are 2 approach roads to this property - the first is definitely not meant for non-SUVs. Call u...

The approach to the hotel passes through pine grove and you fall on love with the place!
You'll want to give this a pass if you are a carnivore! They don't serve non vegetarian
That apart, the views from the hotel are breathtaking

The hotel is located 2-3 km before the Ranikhet city if you are coming from Nainital...very difficult to locate if you are driving past sunset...no signboards and approach is through a forest road with white painted stones lying to indicate path...if you do not have an SUV type car ...good luck...

They have 4 standard rooms and 7 suite rooms (2 adults in bedroom + 2 kids on sofa bed in drawing room)... There is nothing bad with the rooms except they are very average and there is nothing beside the hotel...they have a pool table and TT table on top floor where you can try to entertain yourself...owner is from Calcutta and we understood that not much spending has been done for the upkeep of the property...

The hotel is on a hilltop overlooking slum like houses below but on a clear day one can get to see Himalayan peaks as per the manager. Manager Naresh was very helpful in terms of trying to address all your needs but unfortunately the property is not very inspiring ...they have good lawns and gardens but the outskirt location , very average rooms leads to mostly vacant occupancy...if they sell the suites at around 5K it will be better than to keep them empty

Room Tip: Try to negotiate with the manager to upgrade to the suites if they are vacant....

Nice location...comfortably away from the city and very close to nature...beautiful view...courteous staff and not bad food...but the manager was casually rude with a does not care attitude...otherwise deserves 5 star....

Room Tip: any room will do if you are here...
