Went there in February. We had lunch in the glass house. Before seating us the waiter acted as the impromptu guide and talked quite a bit about the place and it's history. The food was good. The Chicken Roulade was really nice, but the steak was a little well done for my taste. I had asked for medium well. For... More

The Scottish style bungalow is well maintained. I came to know it is 155 years by the time I visited. All the rooms have their own fire place. Food is good. The rooms have an awesome ambience, a comfortable bed, wooden floors, a fire place, neat and tidy restrooms. I heard they have a live band, but it was not... More

Lovely to eat here in the evening when they have a fire going. Especially enjoy the Asian cuisine. Also good for a coffee in the garden morning or afternoon. Very tranquil and quiet.

King's Cliff gave us a home-away-from-home experience. Had a lovely evening with my family. The restaurant is very cozy, comfortable and clean. We all loved the food there. Very friendly service, the chefs also baked a yummy cake for my birthday. That was a lovely gesture. Thank you King's Cliff. Will be back again soon :)

Gr8 location and beautiful decor... Old colonial type, something I would want to retire to!! Food was above good but not excellent... Spaghetti pasta with meat balls was nice but some of the meatballs were undercooked. The soups were nice plus we really liked the stir fried vegetables. The Indian food was alright... Overall we were having a gr8 experience!!!... More

The place is difficult to find even with Google maps due to the narrow mountain roads and non availability of network. But you can take help of the roadsigns placed at critical turnings towards the last 2 km of the hotel. Adequate parking space is available inside the hotel premise. The place is well maintained and has good interior and... More
