This is the most charming hotel we have ever visited! The colonial villa is very well converted into a hotel and has been there since several decades. The decor will take you back to the British era. The rooms are very cosy and comfortable with a lot of vintage furniture. The best part of the hotel is the love that... More

In the cantonment area, the hotel is situated in a lovely sloping green with a wonderful view of the forest around. The rooms are well maintained and give a feeling of the British Raj. There are lovely little trails and small roads around to go for long walks surrounded by Nature.

It's a very well maintained resort. Due to rains it had low occupancy. It was quiet and is surrounded by forests. The variety of food available is quite impressive. There staff is cordial. Overall, enjoyed the stay.

Westview Ranikhet was really a great experience. Though I was visiting for the third time twice with family and once with friends Eachtime I felt it is the best place to relax and chill. Great food and beautiful environment, big size comfortable rooms are the major attractions. Surely advise all to visit this heritage property.
