Very friendly place; the owners take personal interest in ensuring a great experience.The staff are also very pleasant and go out of the way to make your stay memorable. Rooms are clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. Simple but delicious food. They also provide a reliable car hire service, if required, at reasonable rates.

Amazing location, amazing staff, amazing manager and amazing services. That summarizes the experience of this property. I went there (actually moved out of other nearby property i.e. Pahadi House after a sheer disappointment in services) with 2 senior citizens and the experience was nothing short of great.

Here I was, on a great location, in a hermitage at Kanatal. Despite being on the main road, it's the only property on the Mussoorie Tehri road with two side valley views. If Russia has Hermitage Museum then we have Hermitage Kanatal. Professionally managed, superb helping staff, delicious food, lot of activities incl. walk in the valley. There is nothing...

As they say, first impressions are lasting impressions, the Hermitage immediately impressed us as we reached late in the night to find the staff waiting with a warm room and hot food. Needless to say Mr Suman Bhatia runs a "good ship" and takes pride in what he offers the guests. The service was always with a smile and the...

The average businessman thinks hotels are all about the property - location, upkeep, architecture, interiors, appliances. Well, the Hermitage proved that hotels are still about service. And hospitality is still about having a large heart. Kanatal is a a small place, I would call it a hamlet. But pretty strategically located near Dehradun and Mussourie. A place where you can...

We stayed in The Hermitage for about a week in October. We were there on work and the overall stay was very good. People were warm, food was good and fresh and everything, though basic worked!

Agreed the location is amazing, even the view and feel of the place. But that's where the goodness ends. The rooms are really small. All facilities poorly maintained. Some of the washrooms have only boiling hot water provision. And the food takes hours to get prepared. Also the staff and owners are extremely miser and non-courteous. There is no internet...
