10/10 Exceptional

It was a wonderful stay. Property is still fairly new with modern fixtures (comfortable bed, nicely tiled bathroom, wooden floors and central heating/cooling, well operated elevator) and is maintained to an extremely clean level. The staff were very attentive, responsive and professional. Food served in their restaurant was hygienic and freshly prepared. I requested a Himachali dish and they prepared it for me - for which I was very grateful. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay within bounds of nature, a flowing river nearby with Dhauladar mountain range views. It is also conveniently centrally located to 10 minutes walking distance to nearby public transport for taking buses to destinations (for those feeling adventurous) and 5 minutes drive to Gaggal airport.

Helpful staff and clean
Staff are very friendly and helpful. My flight may cancel in the morning, staff help me to call airport and rearrange flight for me !!! Location is good if you want near the airport. Just one small thing, the food is not really tasty. I will stay again if I come back.
