Exceptional 10.0
Room with a view
This hotel is a little away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town but is all the better for that. It was welcoming and comfortable. We booked a superior room with mountain view which was well worth it.The room rates are very reasonable. The room was very comfortable, clean and the shower was great, powerful hot and clean. Staff were pleasant and attentive and in house food was good, portions large so don’t over order! . I would highly recommend this hotel, it is a quality hotel at a very reasonable price. Would be happy if all hotels in India met this standard!

Poor 2.0
This was a peculiar hotel as they didn’t provide heaters for their rooms and wanted to charge extra despite the temperature being so low due to the cold climate. Another issue was hot water, we had to keep the water running for 15-30 min just to properly wash our hands without getting frostbite. The TV service didn’t work either, despite the cable technician coming and trying to fix the service, it was of no avail. Stay away from the WiFi, they give you a new password 3 times a day which is annoying and you also have a limit of 3 devices per room. Not only that, I watched a 10 minute YouTube video and I was notified that my data limit had been reached and I had to wait for the next morning for it to reset. They’re acting as if we’re going to free load off of their “out of their world” internet with 1.0 mbps download and 0.1 mbps upload. Terrorists in caves have better internet than this. To top it off, room 104 is haunted, we actually left a night early because you would experience supernatural events like doors opening by themselves where there isn’t any wind draft with the windows all closed. Last but if not the least of this hotel’s problems, they’re cheapskates, we asked for a banana for breakfast and they declined us stating we must spend at least $10 for their fruit platter. Paying for two rooms totaling $600 for 3 nights, this is worst experience I have ever had. The staff is polite, but that’s probably because they know they’re robbing you blindly.
