our family spent over 12 days at this place and have been coming each year for its solitude and silence. The host is perfect who understands your specific need and caters likewise. The place is neat and clean and offers a perfect holiday. Some may find the distance of 3km away from manali a lot but we prefer to be...

I found staying here to be a great experience . My room was large bright and airy with a great balcony with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and waterfalls. 'Buble' (almost certainly spelt this wrong), the guy that runs the place cooks up authentic Indian meals and the family (who live off site) regularly visited to ensure I had...

Me and my family had a fantastic time @gautam shala, small and cosy place to be in with great hosting. The cottage is close (3-4 kms) from Manali Mall Road yet you can escape total traffic and mess on the manali leh road yet you can escape to Solang or Rohtang without having to encounter the chowk traffic. The cottage...

This hotel is situated a few km outside Manali. It is set in a beautiful location next to Goshal village. The views from the terrace and balconies are stunning and the location is ideal for hikes into the surrounding countryside. The hosts were very friendly.

Gautam Shala Cottage has very good rooms, clean ambience and great service. The place is very close to the Rohatang valley as well as the mall road. It is a good home stay experience and you can customize your requests for food

You can't ask for a better place to stay if you are nature lover. If you like to stay in the crowd and on the Mall road then please look out for other options. Its more of a home-stay with facilities of a Cottages based Resorts. Location: Probably 3-4 KM ahead of Mall road and on the road towards the...

Having visited the Indian Himalaya many times, my partner and I returned to Manali after a long absence. We opted to stay at Guatam Shala Cottage for two weeks in April 2015 and the experience was extraordinary. We would go back there in an instant as the cottage provided a breath of fresh mountain air and complete solitude, which is...
