I stayed in Deodar Manor for 1 night. I was on 12 day road trip, I went to multiple places, from Shimla - Manikaran - manali.. etc but no doubt Deodar Manor was one of the most pleasant, and beautiful place in my entire trip. My few reasons of going back to Deodar Manor will be, not only you can see all the natures beauty while relaxing outdoor, but it's away from touristy places so less noisy, Even you are not at home you will get homely food. Quick tip: If you are staying at Deodar Manor, don't forget to ask for Aloo Paratha for breakfast, hands down one of the best Aloo Paratha I have ever had.

Response from Hanut Bal, General Manager at Deodar Bungalow
Responded 4 Feb 2021
Dear RohitP, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Thank you for mentioning your reasons for coming back would be to experience our location being away from the crowded areas. Our location is by far the best in town, we are close to the meadow and within walking distance to some spectacular trails. The views of the mighty Himalayan peaks from our outdoor terrace and all rooms is something that cannot be found in any of the other properties around in the district. Glad to know that you liked the home cooked food, and this is something that makes our property stand apart from the generic hotels. Our Aloo paranthas have became a favourite for many of our repeat guests, we use organic home made Desi Ghee for the paranthas. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Warm regards, Hanut Bal

We decided to call in our New years (31 Dec 2019/ 1 Jan 2020) at this wonderful place called Deodar Manor in Khajjiar....a 100+ year old Heritage Bungalow in the middle of snow clad Mountains. While exploring the property online, we were shocked to see the same rated 5 star by more than hundred and seventy people on TripAdvisor, we decided to connect the property and happened to speak to Hanut Bal, the fourth generation owner of the property and it began with his guidance and advise on travel and more, that we decided to call in the new year here. And it was over it the most amazing stay at a mesmerizing location, tastefully done up house with spacious rooms and great hospitality by Hanut and his men who cooked great food for us including pastas besides the Indian cuisine. We

A bit of a late review since our stay at the manor i early October. The photos say it all; awesome views and cannot be any better. This is definitely the best place to stay in Khajjiar. Service was also awesome, many thanks to Rajul and Sharan who prepared such excellent meals. Hospitality is second to none by the entire team including Hanut. Hanut was amazing from the moment we spoke to make my reservation to the time we departed. Many thanks for taking such good care of us; and too bad for us for having only stayed for 2 nights :( We will be back, hopefully when there is some snow on the faraway mountains ! Tip : stay longer

At the first glimpse, Deodar Manor takes you back in 1900s to a quaint bungalow tucked away on a small hill . Our first view was in late evening with sun setting over the snow clad Pirpanjal mountain ranges , bon fires getting lit up and a cozy home awaiting to give us warm hug. The home (Even though it is a heritage bungalow it has a homely feel) is kept super clean, decorated tastefully and uniquely. They have a good collection of books related to Himachal Pradesh. Hanut is a excellent conversationalist, the staff courteous and the cooks provide home cooked , fresh , non spicy hot meals. I do hope they start a Veg Barbecue as well along with the non-veg one. The rooms are big, have adequate heating for the chilling winters, clean bathrooms with all required amenities.

An excellent villa. Pir Panjal’s view from the villa is breathtaking. Very unique and beautiful interiors. We had an absolutely amazing experience and our stay at Deodar Manor was fabulous. Wish we had been here sooner. Super hospitality. Mesmerizing and serene location. Scrumptious and hygienic food. The service superseded all our expectations. There are two super cute dogs named Roger and Rocky. A huge thanks to Mr. Hanut Bal for making our stay so comfortable and making sure all our requests were met. The room was clean, beautiful & very cozy. We do hope we can visit this property again as we had booked it for just one night. I highly recommend it. 😊 - Ankita
