“My favourite home in Almora.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I love this place.The most fantastic views of the himalayas.The ambience and warmth of this lovely old historical home will always be in my memory and I long to return..The hospitality and kindness of the owners,Richard ,Elizabeth and Mary and staff. Prem and his wonderful helper who was always humming a tune as he swept the garden at dawn.,make you feel part of the family,as if you've always known them. I will always cherish these fond memories.
.Richard took any stress out of travel by arranging connections for me to and from Delhi,to Binsar,and to Kausani..All that was required by me was to relax and enjoy this splendid holiday.
To sit and read a book by an open wood fire in the evening;to see sunrise or full moon on the Himalayas are treasures which Deodars holds and offers to anyone willing and fortunate enough to make the journey to stay here..A very special place which I will never forget.

Room Tip: I slept in the front room It was wonderful with a huge bed.and afireplace.

we found this place on trip advisor and with very limited knowledge of the place, we went there as a family by faith. And boy was it good!!! It's a beautiful home and you are taken care by beautiful people. If you love the peace and quiet of the mountains - this is the place. The way you are cared for - whether it is the facility at the house or the food is just fantastic - we as a family just enjoyed every bit of our stay. The house is a beautiful place surrounded by the tall Cedar trees and when you sit out on the open of the house, you can hear the sound of the breeze from the mountains through the trees -you have to be there and experience this!
Richard is a very warm host and they treat you as part of their family. Would go back anytime!

Bringing in the new year at Deodhar Guest House,Papparasali, Almora. An quaint, old colonial bungalow up in the hills with all the trimmings of an era gone by. Richard and Elizabeth Wheeler, have this cosy house which has 3 bedrooms with attach baths, a sitting room with real fire place.... there is something magical about sitting around a fire with the people you love enjoying fine malts and conversation. The outdoors offers a spell bounding and uninterrupted view of the Himalayan range...

A special mention to the food that is served, it is simply fabulous. Freshly baked breads, scones, pancakes with organic honey, apple tarts, Shepard's pie, chicken al Kiev, rich cakes, traditional Kumouni food are some of the goodies that we savoured.. Each meal was an absolute delight. Elizabeth personally looks into each meal and cooks most dishes herself!

The weather gave us the entire range from bright sunshine, mist, rain and also snow which delighted the children.

The best part of the stay was it had zero 'agenda' and no television and our 'digital' boys had time to read, walk, gaze aimlessly at the cedar trees and mountains... evenings brought us around the fire place with chess, conversation and being together.

So if you want to reconnect with what matters, head out to the hills and enjoy the hospitality of Richard and Elizabeth Wheeler's lovely home at Almora, Uttrakhand.
