“My Best Hill Station Cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

We visited Manali in last year October during Durga Puja Festival and stayed over there. I booked the cottage over telephone and gave a token amount as advance for Hamta Royal. All the arrangements was in a word Best... Mr. Hirala Thakur, manager of the cottage called me several times before we rached there regarding the service we'r getting from Chandigarh.. Mr. Thakur booked a innova car for us from Chandigarh... When We reached Silver birch cottage in the evening, we were just speechless to see the scenic beauty from the cottage balcony. Every bed room, drawing room, toilets, stairs were totally cleaned... And service, we got there from staffs was best... Like our own home... Silver birch is my 1st Home in Manali... Foods were exelent and hygienic.. Each and every arrangements was best... Mr. Khem Raj Thakur, proprietor, is an ex-army and climbed the Everest.... It was very surprised that the budget is not high, but hospitality is like 4 star category... Out of 10, I'll give 9. It is my only destination when I'll visit Manali....

It was our 2nt d visit to manali ,we were eleven people including four children -4N/5D ( 28th March to 1st Apr 2012), we stayed at Holiday cottage , Simasa in June 2010 .It was very nice cottage . We decided to change the location and opted for Silver Birch cottage . it is a five room cottage with one two room unit at ground floor and another three room unit at upper floor each unit has its separate kitchen and living room , I would like to say that it is as good as Holiday cottage even better in few aspects . Away from the town ( own car is must ) , at very nice and calm location ( surrounded by Snow laden mountain tips all around ) (next to Club Mahindra Resort) . beautiful and nicely maintained property ,Staff- Dear Rajendra,Vijay& Prem singh thanks for caring us ,Very nice food ,( Trout fish preparation was excellent ),very clean ( every day towel , bed sheets were changed) , Owner Mr Khem Raj Thakur was very helpful , He arranged sightseeing at place where no other tourist were allowed .Over all It was really value for money .

I had booked this 2Bedroom,Hall kitchen 750sqft Apt on Ground floor on the basis of reviews from trip Advisor.On the first floor it is having 3 bedroom hall apts for the capacity of 8persons.Extra persons can stay if they r ready to sleep on floor.
The view from all the rooms is fantastic. It is surrounded by Mountains from all the sides.Since it was early march all the mountains were covered with snow.
The property is very well maintained
The food prepared by the cook Bijoo was very tasty. The service staff of 2members were equally very good.The car zylo provided by the owners of the cottage with the safe Driver Khemu was execellent.
Since this property is located 3kms from very crowded Manali its a real boon for the nature loving visitors like us.
There is a small garden within the property.
we really enjoyed our stay at this cottage

This place was suggested by our friend Sudhakarji 2 years back, but we could go only this year 2012 Feb and we were not sure how the place will be but
the title tells all, it truly is such an Heavenly, Homely cottage, very neatly maintained, such good view from all the rooms, it truly is an Home away from Home, the cook Premji and his Nepali assistant, have magic in their fingers, the food was soooooo tasty and freshly made to order, u just have to tell them what u want for breakfast, lunch and dinner and its there, and Rajenderji was always there to help us with our days sightseeing programme, Hiralalji also was always there either in person or phone, And not to forget Sri.Khem Chand Thakur, the proprieter, even though he was not in Manali, his presence was always there through the phonecalls that he made to make sure we r comfortable and helped us in our travelling to Chandighar and Amritsar, be it bus tickets , Hotel booking, he and his staff are real genie's, to top it all the driver of our innova was a patient man and a good guide. I would love to go back to manali just to stay in Silver Birch Cottage, It is my humble request to all to pl stay no where else, Blessed r those who have stayed here,

Room Tip: Any room will do , all r supurb :)

Nw, I am sure that this is the best place in Manali to stay and enjoy.
Best things of Silver Birch Cottage : Privacy with luxury ,, Ultimate Italian Fire place ,,, Awsum food with considerable discount ,,, Ultimate service ,,, Amazing view from balcony nd windows ,,,, They can arrange any type of vehicle if u want,,, they can arrange for adventure trip as well ,, nd in my opinion its like a place u shud visit if u go to manali ... :)
Thing to remember: While booking the taxi,, do negotiate. Check the places in range to visit on tat day from the cottage staff nd tell this to driver while booking the taxi (as for us driver was asking for extra money to go ahead after one point,, which was frustrating) ,,, and if u r goin with ur frnds ,, do check the behavior of driver ,, as u need a cool guy to have fun in the run...
I would recommend this cottage and would like to visit again

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing view of mountains cover by snow
