“The view was great, but....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2009

... the room was awful. It was damp and very uncomfortable. There were cockroaches, and although I did not see one, I heard mouse/rat in the night.

Their tea/food however was very good, as were the staff, but the room was a complete waste of money.

The location was great, only a few minutes walk from the main prominade.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2009

Very quiet and peaceful. The staff were extra warm and friendly and a welcome break from the big cities we'd visited that were generally rude or blatantly money-hungry. We probably should have puched on to another hotel for better value and cleanliness, but we're tired after our overnight train arrival in Dehradun at 5:45 am. First room's hot water trickled out due to kink in pipe. Switched rooms and less of a draft and more hot water. Cobwebs were rampant in the bathroom. Strong smell of sewer after a shower. There are no shower curtains, or walls despite there being a tub. Water sprayed the wooden door which was rotting. Shower would have been better w/o tub and better set-up to drain in the floor. Beds were comfortable. Sheets smelled clean, but looked horrible. Grease and other marks, seeming impossible to wash away. We slept in our sleeping bag liners we brought to avoid just such an occasion. Room had balacony and beautiful views over the Doon Valley. Not on the Himalayan side of the ridge, but we enjoyed seeing the lights at night which you dodn't really get on the Camel Back Road. The waiter at breakfast was eager, but difficult to understand and we enjoyed his enthusiasm for his job. Gave a good sightseeing recommendation after some deciphering. Breakfast was good outside on the terrace overlooking the valley with lots of sunshine.

There was construction going onto cover-up the water damage from the leaky atrium roof to the ceiling and pillars around it. Would have felt better if they were water-proofing the roof rather than patching rotting ceiling plaster.

Two negatives, we were offered tea by the check-in guy who ended up adding it to our bill at the end. Was annoyed by the inflated charge and the fact that it was added when it had been seemingly offered in an air of hospitality. Second, they should employ women to clean the rooms and they might pay more attention to detail and cleanliness. We looked around the furniture as we were checking out to make sure we hadn't left anything and found a used condom under the sofa.
