We had a delightful stay at the Sherlock this past weekend. The staff were incredibly attentive, always ready to help but also left us to our own as we liked.

Well we reached this hotel searching online. They have one of the finest cooks working hard in their kitchen. The location is very beautiful. Bit tough to reach there due to lack of sign boards but worth searching. The staff was very courteous and very well mannered. The upper rooms are good but the lower ones need renovation though still...

As the name indicates, it has a 'sherlock holmes' theme with the rooms named after different holmes stories. We stayed in the garden view cottage. The room looks awesome from outside with an old victorian feel to...

When I called this hotel, Sanjay the Manager answered the call. I explained him my situation. Inspite of being a complete stranger, he...

Are we playing a part in the sherlock series, that’s what we wondered when we stayed at Sherlock for 2N . Sherlock is done up such that it feels you are living life right out of the book. I visited Sherlock during mid-Sept'16 along with my wife, son and daughter-in-law. The property is close to the main centre yet feels...

An awesome experience it was to stay at this hotel which truly gives you the feel of living in the Victorian era amidst the splendor of nature. Our room was valley facing and the view was awesome from the balcony. The entire hotel is aesthetically pleasing and decorated in a stylish way upholding the Sherlock theme. The breakfast spread was...
