Stayed there for 5 days. It is located at the prime location near mall road but the place was quite though. Food was awesome. Restaurant had a fire place. View from the room was good. Monkeys caused a little trouble in the garden. Overall had a great experience.

If visiting Manali with kids/family then its a very good place as location just near mall road. Staff very cooperative. Food esp trout fish yummy. Ambience very good. View of Beas not visible but good snow laden mountains seen from room windows. Have a small garden for relaxing & for kids to play.

It is a nice property with wonderful restaurant cum bar. Added advantage is its proximity to mall road, just two minutes walking from mall. Staff is friendly and helpful. We will like to stay here again any day. A small suggestion if their staff could bring in more enthusiasm in behaviour, it will add upto the charm of this place
