Bir is one of the best hill stations we have been to and Colonel’s resort is the finest one in Bir. We had booked for 3 nights but at the end of day 3, we wanted to extend our stay. Colonel and his staff are very helpful and friendly. They ensured our stay was pleasant and comfortable. The resort is surrounded by mountains and has a very scenic view. They have lovely and super friendly pets.The bornfire at night along with star gazing was one of the best experience. The food prepared is as per your liking and delicious. We had a great time going on a nice long walk with Colonel. Strongly recommend this resort for stay over if visiting Bir. We miss Bir and Colonel’s hospitality!! ! Bir is one of the best hill stations we have been to and Colonel’s resort is the finest one in Bir.

the resort's location is so beautiful, surrounded by mountains. waking up to the beautiful skies and clouds was the best part! bonfire at night and star gazing, absolutely best. we miss out looking at stars in the busy city life, this was the best getaway from all of the chaos. so very peaceful and calming. the hospitality was great, we were served with hot meals and tea whenever we'd asked for. the two horses and ginger (a dog) definitely deserve a shout out for being a source of entertainment :') Colonel personally looked into our stay, made us feel welcome and comfortable. would recommend everyone to go visit this resort if they're thinking of staying in Bir... or even if they aren't make it a point to stay here! the rooms are so quaint. personally designed by the

I stayed at Colonel's Resort for 10 days. Was pleasantly surprised to see the owners (Vikram and Sherry) to take such good care themselves. They were very pleasant to talk to and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Vikram suggested some nice places and shared lot of wisdom about paragliding as he is an expert himself. The property was nice and clean. The rooms were spacious and we had a great time. The food was tasty and easy on the stomach. Would love to stay again in out next visit. The only things that I can be improved - 1. There is no room service. 2. Front desk guy can use some training. He was rude often times, which is a shame because rest of the staff was very courteous and helpful. 3. We were asked to move to a different room in the middle of

The Colonel's resort is a perfect cozy place to stay for everyone, from us kids to adults. The night time bonfire was great and so was the hospitality. The dishes served in the buffet were different everyday and had a good variety . Fresh organic salad from their own field to the Colonel's special desert after dinner. The resort gave a feeling of relaxation as any great hotel would. It may not be the same for all people but I know I enjoyed our visit to bir and our time spent in the Colonel's resort. The horse riding experience was great and my sister thoroughly enjoyed it. The presence of their pet( a rough collie) at first seemed intimidating but by the time we were leaving it was difficult to even say bye to Ginger. She was energetic and enthusiastic. She was entertaining

This was my first solo trip and I decided to travel to the hills! My friend suggested I stay at the Colonel’s resort. Initially I was nervous to be travelling alone but after I spoke to Colonel, I felt a lot more relaxed. The moment I landed at Kangra airport, Col JP Singh ensured I was picked up on time and my journey was smooth. When I reached the resort, I was just speechless to see the beauty of the place. I had such a warm welcome. The resort is a beautiful and safe place for families and solo travellers too. You feel so close to nature. The rooms are clean spacious and well maintained. The staff are courteous and caring. The food is healthy, yummy and delicious. A right mix of non veg and veg. There was a different variety each day. They have a nice seating area with

A dream-like workation with awesome fresh food, Instagram-worthy views. Got to learn so many things from Aunty. Food was always fantastic throughout our stay. Colonel uncle knows the whole area like the back of his hand and guided us to some of the most scenic spots around. Staff was very attentive, professional and very friendly. Can’t wait to be back here !

There cannot be a better place to stay in bir than colonel's resort. Not only will you find yourself in a most picturesque environment, this place also ticks all the boxes you need for a comfortable stay. Rooms are clean, comfortable,with warm interiors and very well equipped. The food served here also deserves mention as most of the ingredients used are grown in house in their farm so all organic and healthy. It is sure to delight the most seasoned veg or non veg pallete. It is also quite central and all the hiking spots are close by. If you need to step out far the transport company the resort ties up with is very reliable with clean cars and decent drivers. What stands out the most is the hospitality of Colonel J P Singh .He is a veteran when it comes to suggesting

Just returned from a memorable trip to Bir Billing. Memorable in multiple ways - the thrills of paragliding, the laid-back small-town life, the lovely countryside, sumptuous food or a luxurious stay at Colonel’s Resort. Tucked away in village Chogan, close to Bir, Colonel’s Resort is a 25-acre expanse of greens amidst beautiful mountains – just the right place for peace and tranquility. Set up by Colonel JP Singh, the resort has been designed tastefully by his architect wife. The 10 rooms in the Standard, Deluxe and Super Deluxe categories are spacious, airy and fitted with all amenities to make your stay comfortable. The restaurant provided fresh and tasty buffets forf breakfast, lunch and dinner. What’s remarkable is that the Colonel’s entirely family is devoted to

We had the opportunity of spending five days at Colonel's Resort. Our stay was extremely comfortable and relaxing. The resort made all the arrangements for us, right from airport pickup at Dharamshala and the drop. They even organised the Paragliding for us, including pick and drop from the resort. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully done. The staff was cordial and helpful. The room opened out to green exteriors, with ample fruit bearing trees. The food was sumptuous, hygienic and tasty. The icing on the cake was the personal touch by Col and Mrs JP Singh, who interacted with all the guests regularly, to make them comfortable. Overall a nostalgic sojourn. I would definitely like to stay again and would highly recommend to everyone visiting Bir.

I had this amazing holiday at the Colonels Resort. I had informed the Colonel of my arrival and he most painstakingly guided me to his resort. I later on saw him actually guiding guests after they left the resort. That is the kind of fine detail he goes into. The cottages of the resort are located in a pear orchard and the trees were laden with fruits and all kinds of birds visit the orchards- a bird watchers delight. The vegetables they serve at the resort are harvested from their garden and they are organic. The resort is surrounded by the Colonels Tea Gardens and you can get some pretty exotic tea at the resort. The garden if full of flowers roses petunia nasturtium and the most amazing Hydrangea. If you are fond of butterfly watching this is a place you should visit! The
