The average businessman thinks hotels are all about the property - location, upkeep, architecture, interiors, appliances. Well, the Hermitage proved that hotels are still about service. And hospitality is still about having a large heart. Kanatal is a a small place, I would call it a hamlet. But pretty strategically located near Dehradun and Mussourie. A place where you can...

We stayed in The Hermitage for about a week in October. We were there on work and the overall stay was very good. People were warm, food was good and fresh and everything, though basic worked!

Agreed the location is amazing, even the view and feel of the place. But that's where the goodness ends. The rooms are really small. All facilities poorly maintained. Some of the washrooms have only boiling hot water provision. And the food takes hours to get prepared. Also the staff and owners are extremely miser and non-courteous. There is no internet...
