“The View was Fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2009

The location was just right for beautiful walks. The staff and management were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were large, though a little frayed at the edges, though overall they were clean. The view from the superior room was spellbinding, though from the normal room there was no view except for the hillside a few inches away...(We travelled in a small group, and took two rooms)
There was an antique-y feeling (in a good way!) to the experience!
But it was the kind of place that grows on you! We were calling it "home" at the end of our three-day stay!

  • Liked — The friendliness and hepfulness of the staff and management
  • Disliked — It was noisy at times
Stayed May 2009, travelled with family

Hotel Filigree is on Camel's Back Road, a little away from the noise of Mall Road. We'd booked two rooms, one of which was upgraded to a superior room (free!)

The superior room was large and clean but showing its age. It had large bay windows with wonderful views of Landour and the Mussoorie Hills.

The standard room, next to the kitchen, was extremely noisy till late in the evening. As it was built into the hill, there was no view from the window. However, the room itself was clean and large.

Both the attached bathrooms were rather small, and we had to maneuver ourselves carefully every morning for our shower. Hot water was from an electric geyser in the room, available whenever we remembered to switch it on.

Room service was reasonably fast, as long as you didn't hit the peak breakfast time. Most of our other meals were outside the hotel. Service was extremely friendly.

Overall, the hotel was very quiet and peaceful. We do wish that they had a travel desk that could organize local trips for us.

Two points to note:
1 Taxis are not allowed on Mall Road, and it's about a kilometer from where the taxi drops you to the hotel. If you have luggage, you can hire a porter to carry it for you.

2. The hillside beneath the hotel is filled with monkeys, so do ensure you lock all windows (including the one in the bathroom!)

  • Liked — Quietness, views
  • Disliked — Showing its age, no internet access at all
