“Cozy and Comfortable”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

stayed here with a collegue for a night. and found this to be the idle place to come back and stay for a holiday also
nice cozy woooden interiors, comforrtable and spacious rooms with excellent staff.
room service was very good and the food quality overall was good
the only drawback was the breakfast which wasnt upto the mark
but overall a very nice and comfortable location for holiday and business

We just spent the night; nice rooms, and great shower. Well maintained place.
Dinner was good, and so was the breakfast.
Quiet place, good view, our driver was served dinner and given a blanket too!
No WIFI at all.
Surely a great place to stay if you are looking for quiet stay, we liked it!

Room Tip: Superb restaurant, good for walking .....

Hotel Willow is a nice place to stay. We stayed there two days, booked our rooms over the phone and where not disappointed. They have several types of rooms, so it is good to check a few before you decide. We had the one with private garden. Room was quite spacious and it was a good choice. Staff is nice, but you cannot expect to much.

The Willow Hill hotel is a nice place to stay if you have a car with you, otherwise to far from the town, has nice views over the city. Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean, cosy and spacious especially the ones with a private garden. Hot water was there as well. Restaurant is all right too. Breakfast is included.

top ten reasons not to stay at The Willow Hill
10-generally poor service (least of your worries)
9-guilt you to book cabs with them
8-staff broke into a fist fight in the kitchen and broke a lot of stuff
7-had to pay for our free breakfast because we were vegetarian and sick of bread
6-when they showed us our room they said this is not a good room (thanks?)
5-advertise they take visa, but the machine is always "broken" and forced us to pay cash
4-bathroom had urinal pucks in the sink and shower and smelled like moth balls
3-woke us up early to ask us when we are having breakfast
2-bed had mens chest hair in it!
1-the trekking guide they sent us out with got pissed drunk, lost and wouldn't take us home.

about our trek:
-told we were to be picked up at 10:00am. during breakfast (9:00am) we were told our driver was waiting.
-our guide was pissed off because we were late when we met up with him at 9:45am
-he was pissed off also because we did not bring food or water (the hotel told us it was provided)
-we spent more time sipping chai than trekking (no kidding, we had about 5 while our guide went off to drink)
-we were out for over 10 hours and we were told about 4-5 hours)
-we were pressured into staying in a small village even though we had paid for our room at the willow inn.
-our guide became inappropriate and was calling us beautiful and gawking at us.
-we were scared!
