I booked Hotel Shivay while visiting Kausani last October. Initially, after reading reviews from TripAdvisor, I was a little confused as there were both positive and negative feedbacks; still, as the hotel fit in my budget and the location was good, I wanted to give it a try. The best part of this hotel is its excellent location. The photograph you are seeing is from the lower road and you have ample parking spaces in front of the hotel. This road, towards the right side of the photograph, is going up and taking a bend, and you can access a higher stretch of the same road from the 3rd floor (as common with hill houses). The upper entrance at 3rd floor is located right in the middle of the marketplace, just where buses stop and shared jeeps line up. True, you cannot get a glance of the majestic Himalayan ranges from the hotel itself. Properties located on the higher roads are better to have a view from room, but at the same time they are costlier. What is the point of paying a lot extra, me and my wife thought, when we can stay at a budget accommodation and just walk a few paces to watch the mountains in the dawn and the dusk? And by a few paces, I really mean a few paces: you can just come out of the hotel, walk through the crossroads diagonally, and take the alley left to have a great view of the snow-capped peaks. However, if you want a better view uninterrupted by messy electric poles and wires (and take great photographs) you might need to walk up all the way to the Gandhi Ashram. …
Very bad rooms which stinked and had pests. The hotel is an old one and on the road with good traffic an dhence quite noisy too. Add to it the pathetic condition of the rooms and it kinda spoils the whole travel experience. Better avoid it.
As a part of our family tour in uttarakhand we enjoyed one day stay in hotel shivay in kausani, Hotel shivay is in front of bus stand and this is the 1st hotel once you reach kausani, so it is very easy to locate, it was booked on line through hotelshivay.in. we book a non ac room, rate 1000 Rs/ day, We reach the place at 11am, as soon as we reach the place we got a very warm welcome, our luggage immediately shifted to the room allocated for us, it is quite spacious and clean having a sofa, tea table, cupboard, TV, telephone, bathroom was nicely cleaned and also too large, 24 hrs geyser hot water supply, only negative point was the bath soap was not of good quality, hotel check in and check out time is 10am. After freshen up I did the formalities of paper work, and take our breakfast in the dining hall, the hotel boys and managers all guide us for local sight seen, though I booked a cab online through gurukripatravel.com and our driver Ramsingh is very well knowledgeable for the tourist places but we did like the attitude of hotel managers and boys, they give us the detailing of the Himalayan picks. Also I must admit the food quality was well, enjoyed dinar too, slightly less salty except everything was too perfect, even they serve food within 30 mins of placing order, The night was freezing cold even in March end, so we had asked for an extra blanket, which was supplied immediately, Some more plus point of this hotel as a nature lover you can enjoy the Mountain View from balcony, it may be a the most interesting place for bird watching, specially spotted eagle can be watched in necked eyes, also ananshakti ashram is within walking distance, which is famous for its stunning beauty of almost 320 km spreads snowy kumayun Himalayas.…
The room was small and the floor was dirty. There was sand all over the carpeted floor. Bed linen was dusty and bathroom was dimly lit with cracked walls. Only positive would be the food which took some time to prepare as they cooked to order. It was quite nice. Ther was no wifi either. Not recommended unless you have very small budget and don't mind adjusting for a night.
Hotel Shivay is the cheapest and best hotel.Its simply A Lodge with a very nice rooms at low price.Parking space is small so its very difficult to park at peak time.only thing is Himalaya view in kausani and gandhi ashram. Again at cloudy weather cloud covers the himalaya and nothing can be seen.
Nice and quite place with economical stays and food. If you are looking for something like Shimla then don't go but if you are looking for a quite place with so many nice people and places to visit. Kausani is the place to go.
I came along with friends. It was a nice hotel, On walking distance from bus station. we stayed two night and it was a good experience. Staff was friendly room service was good, food was average. You have a limited options for food. Room was clean and big. View outside from room was beautiful.
hotel is start of the city location is good, i have booked two standard room but as per clear trip room amenities room heater was written in amenities but hotel will ask me to paid 300 rs extra. also as per my boucher check out time is 12..00 noon but hotel manager says it will be 10.00 am . from cleartrip booking exact pic not clear , i found different from actual
This hotel is at the entrance of the city, a huge four story building. To enter the hotel from the first entry point you need to have strong knees as there are about 30 steep steps to climb which is a situation for old peoples. To bypass this, take as round and instead of going from the first entrance; proceed further and from the only square of the city, onto the left hand is the reception of the hotel and from here you don't have to climb but to get down. As its well said that "Difficult to climb but simple to get down". All the rooms are facing the main road and those on the top floor are better to view the divine nature. From the gallery of the hotel one can view the sunset in clear weather. In the vicinity of the hotel is a temple were the tourist worship and expect blessings from lord shiva but from the loudspeaker are mighty :) All the rooms are good for a relaxing stay. The staff is very helping in nature. The food is excellent as there is no artificialness in the test. Overall a very relaxing stay.…
I m newly married girl we were planning for honeymoon so we decided to go to Kausani. I went Kausani for honeymoon with my husband through namasteindiatrip and enjoyed a lot there, staying in hotel “Sivay”. So when we reached Kausan they picked us from kausani bus stand to the hotel. The staff of the hotel was good.rooms were clean and the service was also good . The best thing I liked about that place was the view in the morning when I got up and saw magnificent view of snow capped Himalayas.
