First a few things about Lansdowne.
1. Its a tiring and very enduring 8-10 hours drive. Roads to the destination are very good or very bad in stretches. You have to cross the inside of many towns and it was a horrible experience to and fro.

2. The local taxi drivers (mostly Boleros) (starting from Kotdwar) drive dangerously fast and rash without caring for other vehicles on the road, even in the hilly terrain. It is a surprise that the authorities are not doing anything about it.

3. In case one is travelling in own vehicle from Delhi, ensure that the fuel tank is topped up at Najibabad or Kotdwar- there is no fuel station once you start climbing, and for the entire location and duration of your trip to Lansdowne and surrounding hills. The only option is to buy a few litres from local shops which too are too far away, and sell at exorbitant rates (understandably)!

4. If you can, book the Delhi Kotdwar Garhwal Express instead of taking your own vehicle. However, keep in mind that the local cab you will hire, will give you a tough time!

5. If you still decide to go to Lansdowne, Blue Pine is an excellent property. Lansdowne town is about 2 km away only. Tarkeshwar temple is about 30 km away and is a heavenly drive and a heavenly place, nestled among forest and hills, to be seen to be believed.

6. Blue Pine is a good resort built on a hill. HOwever even after the lift takes you to third floor, you have too many stairs to climb for few rooms, so one must ensure the level of the room at the time of booking. All rooms have a fantastic view of the hills. Parking is unorganized but we could manage. Food is modest, but they would be better advised to make the eating area more clean, hygienic and presentable!

7. "Mast Maggi Point" almost adjacent to the resort serves delicious Maggi and Bread Omlette- a must try.

8. There will be no phone signal at the resort, and there will be no wifi, which worked well with us though as it gave us some respite from the phone calls! The hotel was courteous enough to allow us to make urgent phone calls from their landline.

9. There is a trek from the topmost point of the resort, and it is quite enjoyable for trek lovers.

10.While at Lansdowne Enjoy Tarkeshwar (at least 5-6 hours project), TIp Top Point, Bhulla lake boating (8 to 5 in winters and 9 to 6 in summers), and thats it!

Room Tip: all rooms have a good and similar view!

It's a nice hotel for all sort of people visiting Lansdowne.
Rooms are nice and view of valley from EACH AND EVERY ROOM is great.
Restaurant is nice with decent options to fill your tummy.

The biggest problem is ZERO phone signals. Your phone will work in all other parts of the city! They are offering free WiFi, but it's useless and better not to waste your time in trying to connect to it. It gets connected only at the reception area and in restaurant besides it. But then speed is so slow, you'll curse yourself for wasting your time. ;)

Rest is all good, and resort will keep you occupied with other attractions in its compound.

It is the nearest big hotel to lansdowne main town. After this the cantonment area starts and mainly couple of Govt hotels are there beyond this point. It has around 35 rooms and very good for big groups. All rooms have valley view and it has a point from where you can have a great view of Himalayan peaks in clear sky days. Landscaping is very good, free internet in rooms with reasonable speed. Food is okay.

Room Tip: Choose for higher floor rooms for more better view

went in Aug 2017 with Friends. No doubt its one of the best Hostels in Lansdowne.

The rooms are spacious and the view from the hotel is amazing, it was raining while we were there so had an pleasing view of cloudy mountains.

The main attraction of this hotel is the Pool, placed perfectly on a mountain, you get an amazing view from it. you cant resist clicking pictures here.

The staff is ok not very friendly, but the gentleman at the reception were helpful. Food is fine and they have nice buffet breakfast. we were charged extra for the breakfast.

They also have SPA and GYM. we didn't experienced it.

Also have a Snow View Point at the top which gives a great view of mountains, if the sky is clear you can also view Himalayas

Room Tip: Choose a room on TOP and carry Swim Suite
