Went there for lunch with my colleagues. It is an old heritage property and gives different feeling. You can have veg and non veg both. Even they have outdoor seating also. Outdoor is more popular in evenings. We took Mushroom Masala and Dal tadka which were delicious. They also have parking space. Overall recommended.
We booked a room in the hotel for staying the night on the way to Manali. The hotel is in the main market of Mandi and easy to find. It is also on the route so no diversion. They have their own parking so no problem there. Staff is courteous and polite. The property is full of old world charm. The arches and wooden panel walls and wooden floors add to its experience. The floors and carpets look worn out and fabric on sofas is also well used. There were no toiletries provided and towels given to us were not very clean though manageable. Food was palatable and service was quick. we had hot water and a big room heater which allowed to sleep comfortably even though the weather was very cold that night as it was raining. Thanks to the staff for being very nice.
A heritage property in Mandi, is a perfect place for a night halt. This place is certainly not for people who have trouble climbing staircases. The entrance is a long row of staircase leading down into the garden. Next to the garden, is a wooden palace, more like a big house. There are 15 rooms in total. The rooms are spacious, and clean. The service was polite, and quick. Dinner was nice. The town center is just outside the hotel. You can sit by the steps with a hot up of tea, and watch the life around you. In the hotel, there is the garden restaurant, and an enclosed area, called Copacabana. The property has a vintage feel to it. The common room walls are filled with prints, art and images. The drawing room is no less than a museum, with the amount of stuff hanging on the walls, and on the tables. I really enjoyed my stay here, and would certainly recommend it, and visit again.
former 'Mandi palace', the official residence of royals, is now a well kept hotel with in house dining. Some low cost rooms may not be quite royal, but the room we stayed in, number 101, was certainly worth the money...I believe that all the rooms on first floor have wooden finish. Pros of room no 101 (and other rooms of same category).... Large room with wooden finish A small extension of room with almirah and sit out area. Large bathroom with bath tub 24 hrs hot water in bathroom Comb, soap, moisteriser, tissue roll, 2 towels King size bed, sheet, blanket In total, 4 cushioned chairs and 2 dining/snacks table 32 inch LCD WITH cable connection SPLIT AC, room heater Fix as well as flexible food menu, food was awesome and servings were big in quantity. Coffee was great Cons: Not very significant, however, Having seen all kinds of rich, the royals and fussy people, sometimes, service may look like a routine, rather than a grand welcome. But one should avoid reading too much into it considering human behaviour. But make no mistake, staff were far from being rude. In summary, it was a genuine royal experience in a property which have surely retained it's magic and feel of rich history. Worth a stay, without any doubt. Our room tarif was approx 3200 rupees for 2 persons. With dinner and breakfast, we paid 4500 inclusive of all the taxes. But, you are free to show-off that you belong to 'Secretariat' and/or an influential public servant and you may get some discount!
If you choose to break your journey when travelling towards Manali, Shimla, or Dharamshala, then you could opt to stay here. I was charged roughly 4K per night with the extra mattress. The grounds have good sitting areas with lovely flowers all around. The heritage hotel itself is in need of an upgrade in terms of its furnishings, but if you can overlook that, then you're in for a pleasant stay. The staff are really very efficient and the food is to die for! The menu has dishes that have been collated from all their individual restaurants and bars. Fantastic food, hands down! One of the best food we have eaten in ages, and we come from the city! Try the tawa paneer and the tawa mutton. Pretty much all their indian dishes are spot on! If you have elders with you, then do ask the hotel and they will show you an alternate route to enter the hotel, whereby the car takes you right up to the side entrance and you don't have to climb down many steps as compared to the main entrance. Centrally located and the bazaars are within walking distance. The Raja can be seen sitting in the lawns or at the reception with his staff, and he will greet you with a warm smile! People staying in Mandi can be seen flocking to the lawns and the restaurants in the evening. A lovely place to hang out in the evenings.
