Tucked away on the side of a hill Mahal Farms has great valley views. Lots of green and trees in the day and lovely lights at night. It is close to the Kasauli mall - for those interested - and you can drive right upto the doorstep. It has a huge area for just sitting or walking. Not the spruced up lawn but terraces which give the impression of walking in the jungle. This was very useful for our dog - Wolfie. Yes - it is pet friendly. It is a homestay and not a hotel. The hosts stay close and are available for any help / assistance. The staff provides home type food. Not too much variety but well cooked. They also provide the cleaning services. At times one has to wait a bit - so do order stuff in advance. There are a couple of two bedroom cottages and some one bedroom ones. The higher up ones have slightly better views. The only thing that I would have liked was a couch and some more comfortable furniture in the living room. Otherwise a lovely place.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Kasauli market, but near enough to the many walks and attractions of this sleepy hill station, Mahal Farms is the perfect place to stay in Kasauli. Clean, comfortable, warm (heater available in the room), the ghar ka khana and Johnny, the ever kind and helpful caretaker, make it a home away from home. The best place to stay in Kasauli...the perfect relaxation and leisure.

Mahal Farms is an excellent getaway from the hustle bustle of city life. We stayed for two days from 15-17 Oct 20. The facility has single/ double room sets where a family or a group of visitors can be accommodated. Neat and clean rooms with an excellent view from all rooms. Spacious sit outs with every room with facility of a bonfire if required. The management is very courteous and responds to any request immediately. Johnny the caretaker looks after the guests with a very personal touch. The food prepared by him has got a homely touch and is reasonably priced. The best part is the facility is pet friendly and has adequate place in the surroundings for the pets to roam or laze around. Overall an excellent experience in Mahal Farms. Highly recommended for weekend or long stays for a couple of weeks also. Keep up the excellent work. God bless.... Sharad and Dolly ... 8335888383.

Thank You Sir for your nice review. Admittedly East End has the smallest sit-out. On the other hand there is a larger sit-out just a few steps away with stone benches and the most gorgeous view put there keeping this in mind. Also being a Farm there are plenty of benches in the fields all facing the valley. Lets hope you visit us again and explore the premises. Thank you again. Randeep Mahal.

Dear Anshul, I do believe you are being a little unfair. As far as service was concerned your family was extremely demanding and we tried our best to cope up with that. We have a service staff of three for six double rooms which you would agree is enough. They were actually serving you all from 7am to 10 pm and diligently . Remember we have other guests who also deserve their due. Food was made on order fresh and in limited quantity. The Problem here was your constantly changing orders and demanding extras which is time consuming as the new orders take time to prepare . As far as mantainance is concerned your plumbing problems were immediately adressed within half a hour. You still insisted on a special reduced tariff which we cheerfully accepted considering the fact it was your second visit. You actually pressed us for further discounts which we politely declined. I believe we try our best and constantly try to improve so we will definitely keep your views in mind. Rana Mahal.

We the family of four decided to visit Himachal with Kasauli as our base for our 4 days sojourn. We booked our stay at Mahal Farms Home Stay. And we are glad that we did so. We had booked a two bedroom cottage. The cottage was very nicely located with a fantastic view from the windows in the living room. The cottage is provided with a kitchen and a living room and a balcony. The living room provides an amazing view. One can spend quite some time absorbing the Himalayan beauty through its balcony and windowsin the living room. Amazing view. Intermittent passage of clouds makes it all the more beautiful. Very closely situated to the mall road and a taxi will take Rs 200 to drop you at the mall road from this location. Though it is a 10 minutes trek to the mall road. The property owner Mr Mahal Singh ji is a very affable and corteous host and takes personal care of the guests lodged. The property also provides for breakfast and dinner on payment which is generally good. Johny the housekeeper is prompt in his service. Overall a very good experience. Just a little suggestion. The morning tea if ordered is served at 8 AM. For many persons like me who are early risers waiting upto 8 AM is too long. Probably some sachets of milk powder, sugar and tea bags if kept in the room even at a charge shall be really really good

Loved the place in all aspects - Location, Staff, Cleanliness, Services & Food. It was truly a home away from home. Valley view from the Cherry Villa was spectacular. Rooms were big enough a nd well maintained. Exclusive parking, courteous staff & owner made the stay worth it. Definitely going to repeat this again soon. Highly Recommended.

We stayed at Mahal farms for one night and had a very comfortable stay. We were in West End Cottage and it gave us complete privacy. The room was spacious and comfortable with a private sit out. Room crockery could have been more clean. The market is just 5 mins uphill drive. Overall, tt offered complete value for money

Thank you Prathiba for your kind review. Also Thank you for your feedback on the room crockery not being clean. It's been immediately gone into and the staff has been instructed to wash it after every check out even if it has not been used. Also they've been told to make sure dust does not accumulate if not periodically used. These feedbacks are definitely needed to keep us on our toes. Regards. Rana and Daisy.

Our booking was last minute, as was our trip, with no prior reservation. Luckily, there was a room available. The owner was courteous and our stay, food and service was pleasant. Even though it was unplanned, the owner promptly sent a taxi to pick us from Chandigarh airport. The driver, Mr. Kuldeep Singh (+91 70186 56972) turned out to be calm and nice gentleman, we hired him for the entire trip around Himachal.
