This was my 4th visit to Kausani, but the 1st time that I fell under it's spell. This was partly because of this lovely hotel and also as it was "off season". The hotel has an old world feel - all stone and wood construction, the wooden floor vibrates as you walk. There is a nice bit of garden, with lawns and flowering plants looking on to the Himalayas beyond. The balconies with heavy wooden armchairs are an ideal place to read your book on a sun filled , lazy afternoon. The buzzing bees, twittering birds and an occasional monkey your only companions!
We didn't lack any comforts-- hot water, heater, clean quilts and cups of tea; all were taken care of. The "indoor games" the hotel advertised was also available in the form of a functioning badminton area. Even some travel books ( on Italy and Spain, but none on Kumaon) were available, together with a few copies of National Geographic :-)
The minus point - -- Food. It was too oily and spicy, but served with so much enthusiasm and smiles that we didn't have the heart to complain!
