The setting is beautiful with the vista from cottages including well kept grounds overlooking natural vegetation on slopes plunging to the river cutting through the valley. Rooms are spacious and while simple are very comfortable. Meals were first rate as was the hospitality of staff, and importantly our...

The place is pretty nice and has amazing host. Munish Pal as well as the staff are warm and take good care of all the guests. We really enjoyed home cooked food and amazing hospitality. The place was nice and the rooms were good. Not a fancy place but certainly worth staying

If on heaven, there is a place, like this, it is this, it is this, it is this! The ubiquitously tucked away gem of a stay at Writer's Hill is beyond words. Sure, one feels unsure while negotiating the many stairs up to the property, but the sight of the rooms, melts the heart. Absolutely stunning, minimalist decor, mind-blowing collection...

After long drive we all were tired but reaching this place our tiredness all vanished. We were welcomed by smiling Mr. Munish (owner). Appreciate it :). Had best meals thanks to Ramji (cook). He made very delicious food. All the other helpers...

6-7 hours drive from Delhi, without pushing yourself if you start early. If you speak to Munish, who is a very friendly host he sends you by mail a pretty comprehensive route map which will not make you search for directions though it is situated in middle of a state highway(Jamta to Renukaji). The resort has 3-4 cottages, a dinning...
