Amazing stay - We had room 12 that had an ensuite, a private balcony and a double bed. Lots of room and an amazing view from the windows and balcony but note this room is a bit too far away to reach the WiFi provided. I am vegetarian and the food was not an issue at all, very authentic Indian food - all the food was vegetarian and vegan with one meat dish per night. Breakfast was more British with toast, marmalade, fried eggs, cereal, bananas, pancakes, waffles etc. We stayed as a group of 25 and so no one else was at the hotel with us for the 2 weeks we were there. The WiFi had a bit of trouble connecting us all as there was a limit to the amount of people that could be on it at a time. Staff were very lovely and helped us as much as they could and continues to do so every

We stayed here for 5 nights, Kesang and her family are very friendly and warm, we enjoyed the food so we ate here every evening for dinner and had breakfast everyday too. The view from our room was perfect. Hidden Forest Retreat has everything you could want for a relaxing stay. Thank you x

I stayed here for a few days in September, toward the end of the off season. I was the only one there the entire time, so had the place to myself. I highly recommend this place, especially if you like plants. This is not a fancy place, but instead is down to earth in a very nice way, and the family is super nice. The main business (at least during the off season?) is horticulture, so there are many plants growing all over the place for wholesale. They do have a retail shop and mini botanical garden as well, but unfortunately I never got to see it. The views here are amazing, at least from the room I had, which was just above the plant area. There is a nice library downstairs in the main dining hall which is definitely worth checking out. I don't recommend the food. It's not

So we just got back from this great place..two families including four hyper kids. They were renovating, but had two double rooms available. Extra mattresses were provided. The rooms were well appointed with wooden flooring and ceiling..were fresh smelling..no fungus or mustiness of any sort..fresh enough linen. The property has a wonderful view of the valley and a sit out dining area, which is where we hung out mostly during our 3 night stay. We had had to leave our originally booked homestay due to poor living conditions and spent an entire day looking for an alternative.We found this place after much scouting and even though it was beyond our original budget, it seemed to have the best value for the money. We were not disappointed! We even had the whole place to ourselves.
