I stayed at Colonel's Resort for 10 days. Was pleasantly surprised to see the owners (Vikram and Sherry) to take such good care themselves. They were very pleasant to talk to and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

Vikram suggested some nice places and shared lot of wisdom about paragliding as he is an expert himself.

The property was nice and clean. The rooms were spacious and we had a great time. The food was tasty and easy on the stomach.

Would love to stay again in out next visit.

The only things that I can be improved -
1. There is no room service.
2. Front desk guy can use some training. He was rude often times, which is a shame because rest of the staff was very courteous and helpful.
3. We were asked to move to a different room in the middle of our stay despite have confirmed booking. Thankfully some one from management chipped in and helped us.

We had the opportunity of spending five days at Colonel's Resort. Our stay was extremely comfortable and relaxing.
The resort made all the arrangements for us, right from airport pickup at Dharamshala and the drop. They even organised the Paragliding for us, including pick and drop from the resort.
The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully done. The staff was cordial and helpful. The room opened out to green exteriors, with ample fruit bearing trees.
The food was sumptuous, hygienic and tasty.
The icing on the cake was the personal touch by Col and Mrs JP Singh, who interacted with all the guests regularly, to make them comfortable.
Overall a nostalgic sojourn. I would definitely like to stay again and would highly recommend to everyone visiting Bir.

Best 3 nights stay in our entire trip of 15 days!
(please Like my review for my effort to keep it so detailed, if you benefit from the inputs here)

In short, must stay for minimum 3 nights or more & worth to stay over a week!, under priced, high quality stay, very good food, interesting nearby activities, very nice property & room, nice hospitality, the best of Bir!

For a detailed informative review, please read below.

LOCATION:
This was a saviour as we checked out early from a highly rated property in Dalhousie and booked Colonel's Resort at last minute. Bir is an amazingly beautiful place and this resort is nestled in the right spot within 20mins walking distance to the paragliding landing station and the Bir tourist spot. Also, close to popular Tsering Jong monastery and the Nyingyang Monastery. Colonel's Resort falls on the way to the paragliding take-off point so the agent can pick you up on the way.

PROPERTY & ROOM:
With just 14 rooms but spread out over a relatively large area. You will get an amazing view of the mountains and so many paragliders flying in the sky. Also, a tea estate is attached to the property. There are quite many beautiful birds that you can spot in the property. Also, there is a bonfire spot and unlike other hotels where they charge for bonfire, here the hosts are generous to light a bonfire every evening!
The rooms are very cosy, decently big and clean. Outside the rooms there is a nice feel with trees and sitting area.

ACTIVITIES:
There are various things to do or places to visit nearby like experience paragliding, see organic farming at the Shunya Farm (do tip the caretaker), visit the pottery village Andretta & try your hands with clay, visit the nearby beautiful monasteries (named above), checkout Dharmalaya, do horse riding at the property, visit the cafes (must visit the Avva's Cafe) & shops (incl. Tibetan shops) near landing area.
Must go for the long morning walk through the beautiful village with Colonel Sir before breakfast and see village life, fruit trees, experience milking the cow, see the stepped farms, etc (Inhale deep all the way)!!!
Also, must go for the trek to the nearby pristine waterfall point and above that to the boulder (overlooking the valley below) where the property staff can take you to have some sandwiches & tea, absolutely worth it!!! (do tip the staff well)

RESTAURANT & FOOD:
The food at Colonel's Resort stands out as a USP of their hospitality. Fresh food cooked with love and high quality organic ingredients. You will not have any guilt feeling with over indulgence. We had all our three meals at the property itself. There is buffet meal available, inform in advance. Evenings are served with tea & cookies in the outside sit out area.

STANDOUTS:
1) ANIMALS - Ginger, an amazingly loving dog who loves to play with all guests. Revathi and Noori are two horses who roam freely in the property. Also, there are cows too. Do buy veggies from the market and feed Revathi, lovely experience! And Ginger will accompany you for the morning walk!
2) FOOD - The hosts/owners of the property stay at the resort too and eat the same food with the guests. Veggies are organic, pure good quality oil, milk & ghee from own cows, etc. The food is like amazing well cooked, tasty and guilt free home cooked food unlike hotel food. We could stay here for even a month eating the same food and yet leave back healthy!
3) HOSTS - Colonel Sir JP Singh, his wife Pratibha Maam, their son Vikramaditya and his wife Kamakshi are the most lovely people we met on our trip. They would ensure every guest is well taken care of and with that personal touch you just feel at home.
4) ACTIVITIES - The morning walk, trek to waterfall and paragliding will remain my favourite memories! Also the evening bonfire!
5) VALUE FOR MONEY - Considering the overall experience, high quality food & comfortable property and hospitality, the price charged is low and is an absolute steal for any traveller! We wanted to cancel our bookings ahead at other places and continue staying here but rooms were not available!!

Perfect place to stay with friends and family, we will be coming again just to be at this resort and bring all my family members too. Would recommend all my friends to visit this place.

The location of Colonels Resort, Bir Billing, nestled in the foothills of the Dauladhar mountains is picture perfect. The buildings, dining room, meadow with horses, walkways blend into the landscape. This is off season in February but it’s a beautiful time- mist rolling in, chill, a bonfire begging to be lit! The rooms are snug and welcoming, the food is delicious and Col JP and his family are excellent hosts. Walking trails, para sailing, monasteries- you never want to leave!

It is not easy to plan a 6 weeks trip to Himachal Pradesh covering 7 Destinations from Bir to Chail..a think tank comprised my niece, a regular visitor, an Army colleague and my wife to approve/veto..the research was comprehensive and we homed onto Colonel's Resort at Bir for a 10 Nights stay..we were completely awed by the striking beauty and picturesque environment, the welcome drink, the manicured lawns and the beautiful flowers..we learnt that the charming and the ever smiling hostess was the Creator and the architect ably supported by the cool, calm, and composed Colonel..the rooms have been done with care and eye for details..it's like a home with the hosts present to look after the guests personally and individually.. there is a fancy dining room with the food absolutely delicious and mouth watering.. bonfire is lit on request and there is ample choice and space to spend time in solitude or in company..the value addition was meeting the immediate family members and the extended family of the hosts resulting in enriching, enlightening and enchanting experience..a must visit for all, individual, couples family, friends, Regimental and class/course get togethers..we made new friends due to the vibrant, dynamic and positive energy..that you Colonel & Mrs JP..we are blessed indeed

Questions & answers about the rooms

Answer from Vinod S
Nov 2014 |
The best and the most comfortable way to reach here is by flight. There are a large  number of over night trains from Delhi to Pathankot and then a taxi (3hrs) to Bir. There is a Volvo Bus service from ISBT to Baijnath (11 Kms from Bir). Room rates are between INR 3000 - 4000 + taxes with meals & drinks on actual basis. Sightseeing is arranged with many Buddhist Monastries to visit including Dharamshala & McLeodganj ( Dalai Lama's residence ) 2 hours drive .
