"Good Service, Comfortable stay"
There isn't much to do in Ranikhet, and the hotel is located at some distance from the city, with very limited transport options. Great location to relax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Go there for a lazy vacation"
10/06/14 Abyzreview Gurgaon, India
We stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights and it was an average stay - Goods: 1- Very quite and peaceful 2- Heritage property 3- Beautiful garden 4- Great view (for us it was a foggy couple of days so couldn't really enjoy the view) Not so good: 1- Quite far from the city. You must have a vehicle at your disposal 2- Very late breakfast - after 8:30. Early risers get impatient 3- Some more maintenance needed - the wooden rooms need some conditioning to get rid of moisture smell. 4- Staff needs to get a little more friendly. 5- A kettle and tea/coffee maker in the rooms will help in cold places. 6- Nothing that the hotel can do but beware, the mobile signals are scarce and are available at certain spots only Overall, it leaves you wanting for more value for money as it indeed is a pricey stay.
"Chevron Rosemount a fabulous hotel."
10/03/14 PradeepPrahlad Bhopal, India
A beautiful 130 year old property converted into a hotel. It's made of stone & wood (Wooden ceilings walls & floors) with glass windows all round. It is one of the most beautiful hotels we've ever visited (Sept 2014). A fabulous garden & huge lawns all round the hotel add to its beauty. The whole place sits right in the middle of a dense alpine forest, and we saw a variety of birds. The staff were very attentive & the food very nice & in very sufficient quantity. Though there's nothing much to see in Ranikhet( except pretty scenery & lots of pine trees) the hotel made up for everything. I recommend Chevron Rosemount to everyone. especially good for retired people.
"Excellent Place for a quiet Vacation"

We have been visiting this hotel for nearly 4 years regularly.It is to the credit of the management and staff of Chevron hotels, that they have managed to keep up their standards all through these years. A combination of helpful and cheerful staff , good food and excellent location makes for a very nice vacation. THE views are superb from the garden as well as the front facing rooms.
"Lovely garden, superb location, good food, average room and staff"

We visited the place during Diwali 2013. Ranikhet is a mesmerizing place. The hotel is in a quiet place. We stayed in a room beside the cottage. Since its a heritage hotel, don't expect new furnishing, newly painted walls or modern decor. The garden has amazingly beautiful views of the mountain peaks on a clear day. The food is good. The restaurant is the British raj types, a bit low-lit but, only decently clean. The staff is not very helpful proactively but if you aggress, they will help. The cottage is very very cold so ask for extra quilt / blanket from the staff - as mentioned you will have to aggress a bit, not easy. Overall, Ranikhet was splendid but I would try some other hotel next time. p.s. Has an area / food for driver so at least your driver will be very happy

Quite far from market, its feel like we are in jungle but the views, greenery, sites are fabulous, heritage property, but the receptionist was so rude, upset hospitality, food was ok ok. Staff was not sufficient. Will think thousand times to visit again.
"Best combination of location , food & property"

Excellent heritage property slightly away from the main market. Lot of greenery and open space which i look for. Lot of games and swings to keep kids happy. Food was excellent even we didn't find food like this in nainital , both veg and non veg. Rooms are very neat , clean and airy
"Lovely abode amidst the Jungles of Ranikhet"
07/28/14 AnujGrover Mumbai, India
Booked this property after going through all the reviews right here on tripadvisor. I wasn't disappointed at all. The property sits beautifully amidst the forest area about 5 kms from Main ranikhet city/ market street. There's no hustle bustle, noise, vehicles or anything else that can distance you even a slight bit from nature. There's pin-drop silence, cleanliness, calmness, freshness in and around this little british-era property. All you can hear is birds chirping during the day, a water-fall nearby which one can only hear but never see and crickets making the loudest noise just when the sun fades away. The staff is extremely humble and helpful, food simply scrumptious. Rooms have a colonial feel. Wooden floors, ceilings, spiral stair-case, a huge dining room (not a restaurant), beautiful chandeliers and wall hangings, a small collection of books, fire-place, sit-outs, wrought-iron furniture, it's got everything to make u feel comfortable. Full of exotic flora and fauna within the property, it's a nature lovers paradise. Play area for kids, bycycles for hire (i did see 2 but unfortunately never had a chance to ride). The only hitch can be electricity outages (hotel does have a back up but might not work all the time) and insects (lots of them) can be scary for the faint hearted ! There's a few places of interest to see in Ranikhet. Jhula-devi temple (small religious wonder with thousands of bells hanging all around and within the temple), a wool & tweed factory run by local women and families of the armed forces, a lovely Museum run & maintained by the Kumaon Regiment & shown around by an enthusiastic Retired Major Arya, Chaubatia garden for fruit lovers and gorgeous golf-course also maintained by the Army. We did visit in the slack season so food service was a tad slow. Place order well in advance to avoid delays. Hotel staff always has many stories to tell, don't miss out. A lovely collection of stamps displayed in the Dining room. I save the best for the last. . . uncompromising, breathtaking and mesmerizing view of the Himalayas right from the door of the dining room & it's extended garden. The evening view of the mighty Himalayas during sunset just made me stand still for almost 2 hours and just soak in all the view and freshness this place had to offer.
"Lovely Property...Great Stay :)"
07/15/14 Parul_Aggarwal New Delhi, India
Ideal for a weekend get away. Well maintained heritage bungalow with all the modern comforts. Location is idyllic and the setting is serene. We just loved the four post big beds with curtains, fireplaces, huge windows, dark-wood furniture and wooden floors. Lawns are big enough to play, run and to organise bon-fires. Food was great, so was the service and hospitality.
"“Beautiful Hotel in the Raw Jungle of Ranikhet” --------Chevron Rosemount"
07/04/14 luvfortravel75 New Delhi, India
A Heritage bungalow converted into a Hotel. This is one of the best hotels of “Hotel deprived” Ranikhet. It’s situated right in the middle of jungle on Mall Road. Mall road of Ranikhet is different from Mall roads of other tourist places. This Mall road is devoid of any commercial or even residential activity. It’s just a simple road in the jungle with few isolated Bungalows alongside. We reached there at 9:30 am and they gave us the room despite the check in/checkout time being 10 am. Manager is a very nice person. As there is not much one can do in Ranikhet I would advise people to book a good hotel near jungle like this one and spend less hours in visiting points but more in enjoying the nature with long walks and listening to the sound of jungle and both of these can be done perfectly in this hotel. Pros and Cons: Pros: 1. Heritage Bungalow with pure old heritage feeling. 2. Situated in the middle of jungle. So just relax in the room and enjoy the sound of birds even from balcony. 3. A big compound surrounds the hotel which has a beautiful sitting area along with a play area for kids with several swings and a badminton court. One can have their meals here. 4. A recreation room with Table Tennis also present. 5. Its a heaven for bird watchers. Many varities of birds present in the hotel and in the jungle surrounding it. 6. Because of its location there is complete peaceful feeling in the hotel especially in early morning. 7. Food quality is good. There was a buffet and every item from breakfast to dinner was amazingly perfect. 8. Perfect for long walks and for those who want to get away from city. 9. A separate place has been provided for the drivers of vehicles. 10. Beautifully done garden with colourful flowers all around. 11. Non vegetarian food is prepared in this hotel. 12. The suite is a beautiful room but the stairs leading to it is very creepy and kids may find it difficult to climb. 13. Good WIFI network is available, password can be obtained from manager. Cons: 1. As it is situated in an isolated place do not expect a party type environment. 2. The road around the hotel is amazing for long walks. Lonely even in peak season and one can have awesome experience during that but because of the isolated atmosphere and jungle all around a little creepy feeling does seeps in as there are tigers also in the woods. So not advised to venture out in dark. 3. Even it is not a good idea to allow kids to play in the swings area of the hotel after dark as it is situated away from the hotel and at the edge of jungle. 4. There are no shops around the Hotel. One is solely dependent on the Hotel. 5. No medical facilities in and around hotel except for a basic first aid kit. 6. Take your own liquor and if you have forgotten it can be arranged but with less choice. 7. Because of its location insects might come inside rooms if door remained open with lights on at evening. 8. We stayed in room 102 (deluxe pine view), because it’s a heritage property the rooms need more maintenance. Rooms are made of good strong and old wood though beautifully done the wooden floor creeps while walking and is broken at few places which is covered by carpet. I would advise the management to repair that.
"Idyllic & Serene...just the perfect getaway to beat the summer heat"
06/29/14 Aqua666 Noida, India
For us a vist to Ranikhet is like being home. Chevron Rosemount nestled in the lap of the Himalayan foothills is just the kind of place one would like to be. Housed in a heritage buildings (Grant Bungalows) Rosemount exudes old world charm, warmth and cheer that simply takes over one's senses. The staff as always are courteous and willing to go the extra mile to make guest feel at home. A special word of praise for Mr Shiv the Resident Manager....polite, positive and cheerful...he leads a happy team.
