“Super for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2011

Bob's Place is a super small homestay kind of resort, very tastefully designed to blend into the mountains. It has great views of the Uttarakhand mountains, is in a pretty secluded spot despite being on one of the main roads and is close to spots like Mukteshwar, Sitla and Ramgrah. Staff is very hospitable and accommodating. Food could do with some improvement but its not a no-go.
Book directly with Bob to avoid the ridculously high mark-up that WelcomHeritage charges.

We stayed for 2 nights at the bob's place, we liked the location , the rooms had a good view. However the way they managed the kitchen and food services was absolutely disappointing. The breakfast went well beyond 9.30 am the lunch around 2.00 and dinner beyond 21.00hrs. We had a tough time to manage with young kids who usually eat all meals alteast any hour early. It was a great disappointment because the food taste was below average. There were just not able to time themselves with anything. Well we were happy to check out. The place belongs to bob anand.. and he was not around so maybe it was bad.

We moved to sitla estate about 7 kms from here and it was a much better place to stay.

There is a prominent notice in the dining area specifyingmeal timngs.B'fast 9am to 10.30am Lunch1.30pmto3pm and dinner from 8.30pm to 10pm. we feel the comment is totally unwaranted as the meals were served within the specified period. The kitchen staff was probably not made aware of the early meal timings for the kids.we have a lot of kids with parents and always cater to not only their timings but also to their special dietry needs.

2 hrs from katgohdam bob's place is 9 room resort on the side of the kumaon hills in a place called nathuakhan. Every room in the resort has a stunning 180 degree view of the snow capped Himalayas. For us from Bombay that itself made the 4 days in the mountains special. Bob's place run by Punam and Bob, is cozy, well maintained,the food is great every day. The Omlettes in the morning are to die for!! Don't miss the lounge. With the fireplace going it makes for a cozy place for an evening drink or a cuddle up with your favourite thriller.

There are numerous walks you can do, through the forests, the little villages and don't forget to talk to some of the villagers. We also drove to Mukteshwar not so much for the temple as for the atmosphere of the little town. A little place there sells world class chocolates. We bought kgs of those to carry back to Bombay. No such luck. They were over well before that.


My family and I are thrilled we went to Bob's place. Thanks Bob and Punam and the team there for a wonderful holiday.

Bob's Place is now like our 2nd home, if we don't go there twice a year we really feel miserable. We have been regular visitors for the past 3-4 years and it is one of the few places which only gets nicer. We are so pampered there by the lovely rooms, the friendly and accommodating staff and the excellent meals that we invariably extend our stay and rarely drive out from there for the 5-7 nights we spend at Bob's. The walks are heavenly and if one does decide to drive out there is a beautiful drive through the forest reserve to Mukteshwar which is very quiet and full of trees. Of course there are many places to drive around but for us the purpose is to relax at Bob's away from the madding crowds and the hustle bustle of city life. On a clear day one can get fantastic views of the HImalaya's.
The property is beautifully maintained, each room has its own distinct charm and is decorated very tastefully. We have always told Bob that he has a great place and he is very skilled at running it, the staff and service is so good that we have never found anything lacking. The food is tasty yet very much like home food and despite staying for 5-7 days at a time we don't get bored of it!!! Just looking forward to our next visit back there.

I was looking get some quiet time off with my wife and two children when I happened across Bob’s Place in Nathuakhan. We booked directly with the owner who was exceedingly charming and very helpful in telling us how to get there and what to expect.

We spent a wonderful few days nestled high up in the hills, with a panoramic view of the Greater Himalayan range, which made this the perfect getaway for us. The beautiful Estate has lush fruit orchards, a newly renovated bungalow and dense oak and pine forest cover. The novelty of picking and eating fresh fruit directly from the tree was wonderful for the children.

In, and from the Estate, there is something for every nature lover. Quite repose, gentle rambles in nearby forests or through village hamlets and for the more adventurous there are some wonderful short trekking routs.

The rooms are very well maintained and have a beautiful old world charm. In spite of the seemingly rustic aura, all basic amenities like attached modern bathrooms are taken care of. A wood fire bukhari kept us warm and cozy. A group of great cooks, conjures up a variety of Indian, continental and Chinese meals that one would least expect in place like this. What makes Bob’s Place truly unique though is the personalized service and care, from the members of staff.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Bob’s Place as your next getaway. It exceeded all our expectations.
