A great hotel amidst the wilderness. Amazing property to unwind and forget the world. Plus a great bunch of guys. If you happen to be in Ranikhet, there is no better place than this to stay. A special mention of the restaurant staff - ever ready to rustle up what ever you ask for.

Room was clean and there was a heater provided. Shower pressure adequate but hot water ran out fast. There is free WIFI but connection (along with cellular reception) was poor. You can...

This place gives you an authentic feel of living in the British heritage cottage with an excellent view of the valley. Long walks, calm & quite are top attributes of this place.

This is the most charming hotel we have ever visited! The colonial villa is very well converted into a hotel and has been there since several decades. The decor will take you back to the British era. The rooms are very cosy and comfortable with a lot of vintage furniture. The best part of the hotel is the love that...
