I had a lovely peaceful stay at Barr House. The location is right in the middle of the forest away from the madding crowds. The room was very big and comfortable with fans to keep you cool. The staff were really great especially Sujith who was warm and welcoming and always on hand to help. The food was tasty and we'll presented. A delightful, restorative stay

quietness in the Verandah

by Max_Fernand on 28 Nov 2018 (Family Traveller)

we stayed at the Verandah from the 24th to the 26th of November. it was a lovely time there... the staff are very sensitive and friendly and the place (a stone's throw from Charlotte Lake) was quiet and had the luxury of space. all who stayed there valued and respected the quiet and children too had ample place to play around... would go there again for sure...

For a 2 day stay here, my out of pocket cost was about Rs 20,000 while the I had various issues. I wouldn't want lack of facilities when I am the one paying so much of hard earned money. Now below I will list issues only with the hotel, you may check my other review of Matheran trip for other issues I faced. 1. Location: place is almost on the other end of entry point. H...

Was there when it was still under Neemrana

by Kusum_Mo on 22 Oct 2018

We had been here for a week 2010, when it was still under Neemrana. The loveliest place, completely solar-electricity based, eco-friendly in every sense with small little thoughtful note for guests, lovely vintage furniture and furnishing and the most amazing hospitality. We loved the breakfast at the tree house, strolling under the canopy of trees, hearing the sunrise through the chirping of at least a thousand birds. We loved the most amazing royal multi course dinner in real silverware with...
