“Great Location but average service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

This rest house is situated at beautiful location where you can get panoramic view of himalayas from your room. Rooms are good and spacious. Due to some electrical problem there was no light in Mukteshwar for 5-6 hrs. This place does not have any generator or backup. Food was good. Overall I can rate it above average comparing other hotels in Mukteshwar.

Location is really good but service and maintenance very poor.I think it is the best location in Mukteshwar.Now some more resorts are coming in near by locations. Please don't take Taxi service from here (their tie up with a guy named Manoj Bhatt). Horrible experience with him.KMVN rest house is good only if you keep in mind the location.

Its only one thing in Mukteshwar which overshadows everything of the destination. That is the view of himalayas. This rest house similarly is something where you forget about the bed, cleanliness and other amenities before the location of the Rest House.

Its located right on the Mukteshwar ridge, overlooking towards Great Himalyan Peaks, no doubt the best location of Mukteshwar.

Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

accessibility is not an issue any how.

Not only the view of the Himalayas make this resort best in location, but the local interest points which are very few infact, are just just next to it, e.g: Chouli ki jaali, Mukteshwar mahadev Temple, PWD Bunglow- where once Jim Corbett Stayed & IVRI.

Room Tip: Opt for first floor front view Rooms to get the best view of Himalayas from the room.

Any visit to the Kumaon region is incomplete without a visit to Mukteshwar, and by far the best spot in town is occupied by KMVN. Upkeep of the place, like any other KMVN, can test your patience a bit. But the staff is eager to help and will accommodate your requests as far as possible. The Inspection bungalow across the road from KMVN is where Jim Corbett used to put up on his Shikaar trips and the place positively seeps history. The view from the bungalow's garden is to die for (check out the pics).

The only other place worth visiting in Mukteshwar is Chauli Ki Jaali, which is a short trek uphill from KMVN. Otherwise, there's nothing much to do here - so just put your foot up, curl up with a good book and take in the fresh mountain air.

If you want good service, check out some private establishments (Pathik resort is a decent option), though all of them are some distance away and you'll need to have a vehicle at your disposal. For KMVN, be sure to book ahead as it's always the first choice for tourists.

As with many other KMVN property, this place also has an amazing location .. you can have a nice view of the himalyan range - trishul, nandadevi, panchachuli etc.. sitting from your room on a clear sky morning .. poor maintenance and upkeep .. this seems clearly evident since the place is quite old and it doesn't seem that it has undergone any major repairs etc .. the staff is friendly, sheets are clean, and washroom is clean, don't expect star hotel comforts .. enjoy the rustic homely experience surrounded by nature .. and beauty .. you have the PWD Guest house and its observation point across the road .. food is fresh and good .. though limited to a simple standard menu .

Room Tip: Just relax..
