I was referred by couple of my friends to stay at honey valley . These two properties are not similar especially the location/view . The host Mr Suresh, his wife and the staff are extremely good. There is a waterfall within the property which is beautiful. Rooms are clean. The poor rating is for the noise and the food. I stayed in Sunset room. This is the most noisy room as it’s just above the kitchen. There is loud noise , mixer noise , vehicles getting in and out of the property and they start work in their garden by 3pm and are up by 6.15am .Extremely noisy ! Rooms dont open up to the estate , they have common areas which do Food is bad! I prefer Homestay which have simple food but are authentic. We were served with burnt bread and thick dosas for breakfast. As per my friends , Lunch was bland (did look like food served in hospitals 😀😀). We did order non vegetarian food but it just ok. Experience of guest doesn’t matter , it’s all about rules and what’s listed on the site . Overall if you are an extremely large group with budget stay option, this is the place . If you are looking for a good relaxing experience this is not the place

My second visit to this place - it turned out to be very disappointing – not because of the nature – but primarily because of the hospitality and basic hygiene issues. I had visited Chingaara in 2016 – and badly wanted to visit it again because of its serene beauty and warmth in the overall experience we had back then – the waterfall, the treks, the bonfire, and the overall ambience! Even this time the nature was equally mesmerizing. Trees and plants had grown up and matured enough to welcome each of its guests. The waterfall looked amazing when we saw it on our way to the estate – probably because of the season. To my utter surprise, and unfortunately, all these amazing sights and beauty around us just lost complete sense when the overall hospitality in Chingaara was compromised to extremes, when we 4 families (with little kids) visited the place. I have spoken to Mr Suresh – the owner – to give the following feedback that I am writing here: Food – Quite disappointing! At 9:10 PM, when I went down for dinner, I was told that the cook had left for the day – their dinner timing being from 8 to 9:30 PM. A few of us, including me, had just 2/3 chapatis with pickles. The noodles was horrible. Hygiene – I was taken by surprise when the I saw the manager smoking while getting the food ready for the buffet. When one of the family members spoke to him, he was drunk then. Smoking and drinking is their choice – but when they are on duty, hygiene is compromised badly. Cleanliness – Rooms were of course clean on the day we reached. However, next day when we asked to get the rooms cleaned, we ensured that we do not leave any cloths on the bed so that cleaning is easy. However, got to know about 2 things. They informed that as a policy they do not clean rooms for one-day stay – ours was a 2-nights 3-day stay. They indeed cleaned the room… but that statement made us feel disappointed in the first place. They said we had left lot of clothes on the bed… Can’t believe they can lie too to justify their work. Can’t imagine the dogs peeing on the chairs that we used to sit, eat snacks and stuff. Nature cannot be this inhumane. It is clearly lack of maintenance and safety, and ignorance for people in such situations. Leeches: Considering we were a large group – with 7 kids with us – there was no information on how to deal with leeches. We knew there were leeches – but right down the premises. The kids panicked and one of them almost fainted as she had to run uphill crying. I had to carry my little kid and run uphill to ensure his safety. No complains about leeches being there. But the point is, knowing that we are from outside, the manager could have communicated about the precautionary measures beforehand – especially when there are so many kids with us. The staff need some serious training. They simply lacked coordination in managing diversity. They either need to learn to manage large groups or they need not allowing booking for large groups – their choice of course. Moreover, when we were checking out, I asked for a tax bill… and Jatin said that he will take 2 mins. We took more than 30 mins to pack our stuff and he did not bother to give the bill finally. I had to call them the next day to get the tax bill. I empathize that the owner did try to compensate us by telling us that he will book another hotel for us. But a few things are not replaceable – and so was our experience! Having that said, I still believe the place and its surrounding is amazing and truly mesmerizing as long as you are least bothered about the other experiences we had. Unfortunately, for us – no waterfall, no trekking, no food to basic satisfaction, and no bonfire experience ☹. Really sad!

This is a shabby unhygenic place. Its not well maintained and the prices are like 5 star resorts. Forget about food options, they will only give half baked food to visitors. North Indian food options are not avilable at all.
