Came last year the rooms had freshness and again this year it was still there...has a panoramic 360 view around the place huge deep forest with wooden interiors and a castle feel simply perfect for me.

Cons: We were seeking a quiet, peaceful time in...

I have lived in UK for 3 years and believe me this place can give you the scottish castle feel. The rooms and furniture is like English hotels. Hospitality is great , could not feel like going out of resort for 2 days. Food is good except the channa masala I ordered. The location and scenic beauty makes it great....

We were group of friends travelling with kids. We arrived late at night at about midnight and were amazed at how cold Manali was. It had rained that evening so the temperature had dropped significantly. The property looked lovely and very inviting... almost like an old world world gothic inspired stone structure.
