Binsar Estate, P O Ayarpani, Binsar Wild Life Sanctuary, Almora, Uttarakhand, India
"Tucked away in the forests of Binsar, Grand Oak ***or is like that perfect hideaway for a brief break from the hustle and bustle of city life. We spent two nights at this amazing property with an old-world charm. We had the one of the best stays so far, considering we take very frequent trips and vacations short and long with at-least three every year. We had taken a chauffeur driven cab which goes till a certain point (Simba Café) and the pickup vehicle from the hotel was there which took us to the property. Positives: a. The views from mountain view rooms are to die for. Beautifully done up rooms with old styled furniture, a mock fireplace and perfect lighting b. Spacious and grand balcony with each mountain view room c. Excellent hospitality – every personnel in the ***or was very warm, and made us feel at home d. Curated dinner menu – nothing short of fine dining experience with a customised menu sheet e. Awesome food – we tried Kumaoni, North Indian and continental spreads Negatives: Nothing, really Tips: a. You’ll get only Airtel network here, but they have Wi-Fi. b. Do not miss watching the beautiful sunset from this property. c. Hit the huge lounge with cosy corners for reading. They have some really great books for you to pick up if you forgot to carry one. d. Try the mountain view rooms facing valley, they come with the best views (for example, rooms 302, 303). e. The trek to Zero Point is nice and worth taking, and our guide Hemjoshi was friendly and informative."
"This place is the best place to stay in binsar,uttrakhand. You will feel very peaceful, comfortable and calm at this property. The views on the Himalayas,the modernist design of the property,the kindness and the attention of the staff and the ***agers were just perfect. The surroundings of the hotel are wonderful. Walks around the property ate stunning. You can go for a trek to zero point which is 5 kms from this property. About the food, everything was lavish. Best thing about the food is that everything was healthy. Great food=great mood to stay at such places. Thanks to grand oak ***or for good memories and best service. "
"A memorable experience. A beautiful British ***or amidst the Himalayas away from all the hustle and bustle of city life. The 1880 built ***or has impeccable facilities, excellent staff, and a old world charm which is rendered all the more special by the personal touch of the owners. Excellent nature trails and fantastic food also enhance the experience. Highly recommend it."
