We got to know of this hotel through a friend who had visited just a week before us. She recommended it as a nice and clean hotel with good food. We were two families with 2 children each.
The hut, which is really a large double bedroom, is quite spacious with large glass windows, which offer great views of the mountains. The windows are tinted on the outside so one can't look inside. We slept quite soundly in the big warm quilt and fluffy blankets. The sheets were clean.
The bathroom is also clean with fresh towels and geyser. The rooms were cleaned the next day and were spotless when we got back from our day out.
The food was good and homely. We ordered omelettes, which were very well done and alu puri, the alu subzi was delicious. I must mention the vegetable and paneer pakoras we ordered one evening that were just perfect! We would sit outside our hut with tea/coffee and enjoy the snacks. We also enjoyed a small bon fire, the hotel arranged on our request. We sat around it until late into the night.
We also happened to visit two other hotels in Chail during this stay. We went to Chail Palace. The grounds are beautiful (we did not see the rooms) but the monkey menace at Chail Palace hotel is real and we faced some very aggressive monkeys. Definitely not a place with children.
We also tried the buffet lunch at Tarika's Jungal Retreat. The food was below average.
After visiting these two places we definitely felt we made the right decision to stay at Village Live in. There are nice walking trails to Carnation farms just below the hotel. We would recommend this to friends and visitors.
