First I should point out that this hotel has quite a range of rooms. I stayed in one of the nicer ones for a week. The view from my room was spectacular and the quality of the room was fantastic. I might have stayed in the room forever, but it was a bit too expensive for me, especially considering that I was staying in Mussoorie for about a month.. (I was paying Rs. 1,600 per night.) At the time, though, after some rough traveling, I needed some comfort and luxury - which this place was able to provide.
The staff was excellent: friendly and service-minded. The only negative was the noisy (Indian) guests who would gather in groups in the hallways and conduct noisy conversations outside my door as if they owned the place. But that was more a characteristic of Indians and I don't suppose the hotel can really be blamed for that.
Overall I loved my time there and I would gladly stay there again in the future should my budget allow it.

Although not the most chatty of drivers he tells us he was not born in Dehra Dun and that Mussourie ‘is nice holiday for all tourists’. It’s actually been really nice to travel at this time of year and we’ve had the chance to meet some really great Indian families along the way. The weather is sometime stifling but ...
... and sat by the water. Savouring every moment. Drinking in all the sights and sounds. Feeding my soul. The sun was beginning to set and the sky changing color. I headed back to the camp. I was thinking to myself, a campfire would make this a perfect day. We were sitting by our tents, wondering what time dinner was going to be served when a young man came and said “Snacks” At that moment I noticed at the other side of the camp four chairs had been arranged beside ...
... election. It was somehow clear to us that these people were paid to march around town with banners, shouting for people to vote for their candidate.
India is known as the world’s largest democracy, but here, they don’t even pretend to campaign on issues. It’s more a case of paying a group of people to march around giving the appearance of supporting you – with the expectation that if you win the election, you will steal back ...
... make a commitment that I’m not sure I can keep, so I might have to pass on this place.
As I was sitting on a park bench on the Mall (the same park bench I was sitting on when I met Wilfried the German), a group of young women passed by and greeted me. One of them asked me “Are you a geographer?” (I guess my hat makes me look a bit like an explorer / geographer.) Anyway, it turns out that they are all geography students at a university ...
