This place is a total rip-off.... TOTAL!!
We stayed there in December 2011, considering a busy Christmas time booking was done well in advance. With half the tariff being paid in advance, even though our travel plan was getting hectic - we had to make it till there.
Considering we were on the road for more than 8 hours, this place was not worth as end of our tiresome journey. It has two wings - Super vintage and vintage; no kidding!!
To our surprise, despite being Christmas vacations there were hardly any guests beside us. First they took us to the super-vintage section. Here, rooms were smelly, dusty and seemed like not opened for eons. Next, they suggested staying in a charming room atop winding staircase. Even though the view was good, the room was crooked and floor was creaking.
At last they gave us a spacious room near the reception. We could actually hear word-to-word from their reception counter. As mentioned the room was spacious enough to accommodate us, but its bathroom requires a special mention. At the end of corridor with old plumbing system - modestly clean and sparsely giving warm water. All in all not a good experience.
As far as this hill station is considered; will suggest people to stay away during winters. We hardly came across any tourist. Lack of people resulted in lack of amenities. Like there were hardly any places open to eat, as this being low season.
If in search of good food, then would suggest Punjabi restaurant near Subhash chowk church. There are two of them, although we tried only one the next also seems pretty decent.
