“Old world charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

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!

This is a small, simple hotel, set in a lovely garden, with mountain views, in a quiet location about 1 kilometre from Kausani market.
The rooms are large and rustic, but reasonably well equiped and comfortable.
The eating area is in a semi open room in the garden and while this is nice during the day, it is rather cold at night. However the food is good and the service okay.
The hotel will appeal to guests that are more interested in staying in a quiet place, with good views, than smart rooms and facilities.

Towels are not proper d.c.& proper dry.eco lodge have no good polished staff like room service food service. Kitchen staff, room staff,room clean service staff,luggage lifting staff are comman. N0 more staff.
We complain to manager but he don’t co-operate us & argument with us. He told us the rules of hotel industries. Only one pair of towels in 24 hour provided by hotel no more towels. Restaurent of hotels is in open place.At the time of dinner (temp.8 degree) very cold but don’t provide camfire. Very bad experience of my life. Pl.dont choose cheveron eco lodge.

Its a decent hotel. If you are expecting modern rooms which are fully equipped with amenities, you are in for a surprise. The rooms have earthern walls and floor. The beds are shaky (iron beds) and the washrooms are just about ok. The rooms are however quite clean. The USP of the hotel is the garden area and the place where dinner is served. Its a nice garden overlooking the lush green valley which gives you a good view of the sunrise early in the morning.

Room Tip: Take a room which has windows opening into the valley for a good view.

Kaushani is really a small place where people go to get a glimpse of Himalaya. Eco-lodge successfully got the theme and organized itself to suit the best. All other properties are near market area amidst noise. But this place is far from all those and set in the backdrop of mountain. The food served here requires special mention as we never tasted such an excellent Kumaoyni Murg Curry that was served here. I would definitely recommend this property to all travelers and request them to stay there for at least two nights though Kaushani requires single day.

Room Tip: Please book first floor room as ground floor rooms don't get enough sun light.
