If there is a paradise on earth then it is Hotel Heritage Khazanchand Mansion, where I spent a wonderful, long and luxuriant weekend with my family. The was ever prompt and did whatever they could to make us feel comfortable and homely. The food was awesome especially the Kumauni dishes.
The evenings were just mind blowing with a view of the twinkling lights of Almora visible in the valley beyond!! And on top of it a lovely tastefully cooked dinner served alfresco added to our pleasure.
I highly recommend a stay at this homely Heritage Hotel.
Room Tip: Ask for a room next to cozy corner. It’s worth it.

The Mansion has a quaint colonial charm with its outsized ethnic bedrooms and a rare prominent view of the breathtaking Himalayan peaks such as Trishul, Nanda Devi, Nanda Ghunte, Mrigthuni, Maiktoli amidst others. Along with this the scenic beauty of the eye catching sunset and the wide resplendent valley below leaves one amazed at their splendor. The mansion was built by the famous Dr. Khazanchand and has also been christened after him.The Mansion's structure has a magnificent frontage with stucco colonades, wooden flooring & ceiling and rough hewn stone walls giving it the flavour of an original British Colonial Architecture.In yester years, legends such as Jawahar Lal Nehru, Uday Shankar, Sumitra Nandan Pant to name a few have enjoyed its hospitality which is now open to one and all.We would recommend you to do nothing, just nothing the first day you are with us at The Heritage, which is the best thing in the city weary need-just breath the fresh air, soak in the sun and view the Himalayas. Even during the winter one can simply enjoy the snow covered landscape from the window of our heritage hotel’s cozy heated rooms. It is no doubt an experience one has to savour to believe. So, why the speculation-just make a bee-line for The Heritage, you will never regret it – that is a promise!! ... more less
