Location wise difficult to reach down as well as up because of steep slopes if you dnt have 4x4 vehicle dont even think to drive down hil because next day you can't take vehicle uphill.I got stuck for four hours then got pulled up by the owners 4x4 pajero. Currently its under renovation or its a new property so shortage of staff ,clean rooms ,basic necessities are missing. No power backup in resort means if theres no electricity theres no heating mechanism available no chimney n all.thank god there were very few electricity cut during one day stay. Cottages dnt have much to offer just a heater and a double bed is available. Owner is a warm and helpful person but stilla lot of improvement is required.

Dont go to this hotel. The hotel is in secluded area. Secondly road which goes to hotel is extremely dangerous. If you are going with your family. You are putting your family in dsnger. I am driving in hills since last fifteen years. I have gone to Kedarnath, gangotri. Badrinath. I have driven to these remote places and i know hilly roads. But even then, the road which goes to this hotel is dangerous. Even i vouldnt drive downhill. Once we reached there. We were stuck. Hotel asked us 200 rs for driver. The driver will take our car from hotel to main road. We were trapped in hotel. Tea cost us 35 rs each cup, and food was also expensive. Next day when we started driving from hotel to main road. My car couldnt move as hill was so steep. Even on first gear, the car didnt move. Then hotel staff said sir you have to slowly come downhill and give enough race, so without breaking the momentum it reaches msin Road. I seriously dont know when this road is so steep, how can i come with 40km per hour speed and do dare devil stunt. I applied hande break even then car was moving towards trench. I had to constantly push break, so it stabilise. Then my wife put rocks behind the car wheel. But as i left brakes, the wheel and sheer power of gravity broke rocks. Anyone can loose his life by going yo this hotel. Please dont go.

This can really be called a Resort due to the space they have. But the narrow approach road needs an expert driver. Driver services are available. Food was good. We opted for the Buffet Dinner and Breakfast.

Stay was very nice. Specially the view from the hotel is very good. It is excluded from rest of the city. I find staff quite helpful. There was a car provide for pickup and drop off the cliff. Suitable for people looking not to be disturbed and stay in peace.

Been there twice and the place and staff did not disappoint anytime. The view is just extremely soothing as you are in the valley surrounding mountains. Staff is well trained and very polite, specifically “Pintu”. Breakfast was good and had touch of homely cooking. Approach road could be better and open area could have more seating spaces. My purpose of travel was team outing and this place checked all the right boxes for me.

Rooms are maintained terribly. There are spiders crawling on the wall. Condition of wardrobe, gates are pathetic. Dinner hall tables' cloth had food stain marks from days. And it has some strange smell. Dont take your car downhill to the resort. Its too risky. So if you are at hotel and their driver is not there, you will be stuck there. It was raining on the day we reached and to our surprise the ceiling started leaking.

The hotel is set in the beautiful lap of nature surrounded by high hills and magnificent mountains. Reaching to this place was definitely tiring but the hotel / room and view was worth all the efforts. 0530; the feeling is indescribable. You can see mesmerizing foggy mountains and endless greenery. The hills are covered with pine and deodar trees. Even at the peak of summer you can feel the cool breeze. The mountain water is sparkling clean. The evening end with camp fire. The hotel provides all the basis amenities required by a traveller. The food is simple yet delicious. They have a variety of local fruits and veggies on the platter. The local tourist places are accessible by car which can be taken from the hotel.
