Worst Hotel deserves negative rating
on Jun 29, 2017
I have travelled extensively across India including HP and hill stations in other state . Our stay at this hotel was the most disappointing experience we ever had. Firstly they are cheats; we have booked only 1 room but they have taken booking for 2 rooms and charged us for two rooms. I have in fact called the manager 3 days before our scheduled stay for confirmation and he confirmed me that we will be charged for 1 room but when we checked in they offered us 2 rooms and said that as per there chart 2 rooms r booked and there would be no cancellation and thus no refund. I asked for the rate card but staff did not provide me that and said it is being managed from Delhi , the same manager who gave me wrong confirmation. But our misery didn't end there . We have asked and were confirmed that our room would be on 1st floor but it was on the ground floor. There are no great views from the room either and balcony is also common , no privacy. Now though we have booked the room with meal they did not offer us the breakfast or dinner. We had dinner only once in the hotel and it was pathetic and very high priced which we got to know only during checkout , we were charged Rs.900 for 10 rotis, jeera aaloo,dal fry , diluted lassi. In the evening when we wanted to have some snacks like pakoda at hotel then the staff said they do not have any snacks options at the hotel. There staff is also highly unprofessional, unhygienic and rude . One of the staff got into argument with our driver on just when he asked if he could have dinner in the hotel. I have to personally intervene and wasted 30 mins in calming the hotel staff. We have booked this hotel and unfortunately there were no reviews on agoda , I got lured by the hotel pictures and now regret it. Later on further enquiry I got to know that this is just a house turned to hotel , the owner lives abroad and he is least botheres how it is being run or how the customers are being serviced. I think all he is bothered is about earning money from this god forsaken property. Also the hotel is being blacklisted by most of the tour operators because it is not able to provide the acceptable service to the customers. This is an honest review and feedback , hope this would help you all to avoid this hotel. Thanks.
Do not compare it with hotel, its a homestay..

To start with I dont know why so much price on booking.com and agoda.com for a homestay like woodyvu..
Positives : Good & peaceful location, good view, home away from home feeling, courteous people, nice coffee
Negatives : highly priced (should not be more than 2K including taxes), water problem (faced problem in the morning at the time of bath, hard water), dinner as per people managing homestay

This place has a unique charm attached to it. The wonderful views all around makes it a great option to stay in Manali. Friendly staff made this trip memorable. Food was amazing. A bonfire in the evening made this whole trip even more memorable. Rooms were cozy with clean washrooms and balconies with amazing views of the mountains. I loved this place.
Fabulous place...amazing location with a glorious view!

Interesting place to stay in Manali. Parking not an issue here. Enjoyed with friends, booked one cottage having three rooms. It was like a home away from home. Thank you Woodyvu for an amazing stay. Will be back soon!

Manali has been moat preferred holiday destination for me and my family. It was my first time staying at Woodyvu Shuru Cottage during last week of May 2016.
It was an excellent experience of high-end hospitality. The room, the ambience, friendly staff, excellent service with awesome view. Location same as we wanted away from hustle and bustle of manali city, though it is just 10 min. drive from the mall road. It was a dream holiday and promise to visit again soon.
