The accommodation, common room, restaurant, courtyard and grounds are lovely and well-maintained - although the ensuite shower with bucket, light water pressure and luke-warm water took a little bit of getting used to for a westerner! Staff were just wonderful bringing extra toilet paper, drinking water - and wonderful hot water bottles to help cope with the coolness of the chilly spring nights. Fantastic heavy blankets and a nice floor heater helped too. Local monkeys were cute although caused a bit of a nuisance, which the staff managed very well, taking effective steps to dis-encourage them. The Ayurvedic food was delicious, fresh and nourishing - outstanding value and a highlight, with many wonderful choices. A lovely heritage place with a fantastic view of the Himalayas from the lookout - a great place to peacefully connect with nature and Mother India. Ranikhet market is close-by, as are sacred temples and other cultural attractions. The Lodge includes a fantastic souvenir shop with beautiful locally-made woollen scarves and jumpers. A wonderful experience, including celebration of Holi, that I will never forget.Read More
