Loved our stay here. Large rooms, wonderful parking and a great restaurant. The breakfast in the lawns is a great idea. Lovely views too. The location is great as both the mall road and old manali are walking distance.

Stayed here in October last year, staff are welcoming and friendly, food is great. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the gardens are beautiful. This is the place to stay in Manali. The bar is busy and live music events are on regularly. A short walk away from the market We were offered a complimentary taxi for our next stop.
