Good location but poorly maintained
on Oct 2, 2017
We group of 4 couples stayed for 1 night in this resort. Resort location is good but it’s very poorly maintained. Firstly approach road to resort is in bad shape that even vehicle tyre can get burst. Rooms were not cleaned properly as bedsheets and blankets were stinking, room furniture were not maintained properly, bathrooms were not cleaned. In some of the rooms, Light and geyser points were not working. In the morning, there was no water supply in the bathrooms. Food quality was ok types.
Overall, won’t recommend anyone specially couples and families to stay there.
Beautiful place to stay and ultimate view

Firstly this is the beautiful place to be visited and is worth spending money.
This hotel is now been taken by Mr Amit who is taking care of this hotel.
Food quality and taste is ultimate, staff is curtius for every help or service they can do.
I appreciate the owner for having such a great place for travellers.
And yes it's little far from the city but yes this place is for peace and Nature lovers.
Approaching road is now renovated even i drove my car till hotel.
In terms of rooms, hotel is completely renovated, fresh linen is ordered now.
I know all this because i recently stayed here as last time i was not able to post a review here.
Try visiting this place for your inner peace.

approx 2 hrs drive from Shimla Parking on ways to kufri-chail. It you willing to get just relax in a calm place go there. Food is Delicious & Good. Rooms are Sp[acious in fact all rooms are Family suits. Even you'll get a Kitchen inside your room.Bathroom needs Lot of Improvement. Good Arrangement for Outdoor activity for Kids.
Isolation at its best

I knew this hotel was far from Shimla, but didn't imagine it to be so far, that we began praying to god to bring our journey to an end! I booked this hotel after seeing some very good Tripadvisor reviews. We went from Delhi to Kalka by train and took a cab from Kalka for Koti (it cost us a whopping Rs 3,250 - Swift Dzire, airconditioned) and it took us around 4 hours to reach there. (I threw up constantly during this journey - motion sickness at its worst!)
The long, unending drive seemed worth it - the hotel is located at a splendid spot on top of a hill on the Kufri-Chail road. It's beautiful, peaceful and offers splendid views of the sunset and sunrise. We had booked a family suite. Our rooms were okay. Had it not been for the splendid views, we'd have gone elsewhere. The staff is very courteous and helpful and the food served was quite delicious. Stick to Indian cuisine and you won't be disappointed. Plenty of options for kids to play as well.
Mind you, the cellphone network here is very poor - we could not make any outgoing calls during our 3 days of stay. The free wifi was the only saving grace.
There is almost negligible sight-seeing to be done around, except for a casual trek nearby. So if you're planning on staying here, think of it as a great opportunity to just relax, read a book and chill in the hotel rooms or its lawns. It's a wonderful way to rejuvenate and de-stress.
PS: Special hat tip to the hotel manager for arranging a cake from several kilometres away so that I could celebrate my first wedding anniversary! (Thank you, Mr Vinay, if you are reading this!)
