Peace, Privacy, Food, Entertainment and service...all top notch. Though booking experience with clear trip was very poor. If you want to reconnect with nature and recharge ur soul from the daily hustle of city life, this is the best place just a step away.

Cecil is located in highly picturesque place with great view. Many points are very close by and at walking distance from the hotel. The service is highly excellent and owner personally looks after everything. Food is authentic Indian. Only problem is the quality of washrooms.

We stayed at hotel Cecil between 27th and 29th Nov. It was a pleasant stay. The ambience and location of the hotel though far from the market is a walkable distance. It provides for a more closer to nature experience. The food offers great value for money. The hotel is a good place for a family vacation. It also offers...
