How do I start this review as it's been a while since my holiday ended here at Manali. If one went through my earlier reviews, it's been quiet chalk n cheese affair, i.e. either I liked the place or I didn't.

A traveler would expect a little more courtesy when they face some discomfort but that was missing. Interestingly i was asked the next morning if i would like to vacate the hotel as they had guest waiting for that...
