5 - Star Comfort at 3 - Star Fare
Just back from a lovely 6 - nights/ 7 - days sojourn at Willow View, Bed and Breakfast accomodation at Gunial Gaon, Dehra Dun. What an incredibly enjoyable and comfortable stay we had here!
Run by Anita Roy and her mother, the BB consists of very elegantly designed and aesthetically decorated double-bed rooms, a spacious well-equipped common room having a kitchenette, dining space and sitting room and an attached washroom. All amenities are provided like TV, Wi-fi, fridge, geyser, water-purifier and electric kettle.
The BB overlooks a lush mountain range having as its centre-piece the Queen of the Hills - Mussorie - which sparkles and glitters in the evenings.. There is also a playground below belonging to the Abhinav Cricket Academy. It is this very ground where the Afghanistan national cricket team was seen practising before their one-off test with India at Dehra Dun recently.
The BB is situated in the lap of nature , with dense forests at a distance and surrounded by fruit orchards containing mango, litchi and jack-fruit trees. The place abounds with rare, beautiful birds ( black-crested golden yellow bulbul, streak-throated woodpecker, golden oriole and orange-bellied leafbird), a variety of butterflies and flowers ( hibiscus, rose, white spider- lily). Monkeys are frequent visitors. Two pet dogs - a dusky and a bhutia- act as constant sentinel.
Indeed, Willow View BB is a home away from home, with Anita and her team playing perfect hosts. Sumptuous breakfasts - with a choice between Parathas and Egg-and-Toasts - and delicious dinner ( optional ) being served with great hospitality. Choice of Veg and Non-Veg is available.The kitchenette is always full of a variety of fruits and biscuits. While the standard of comfort is high, the cost is very reasonable. It could indeed be said of this BB - 5-Star Comfort at 3-Star Fare !
Many thanks to the hostess and her team. The BB is highly recommended, especially for those looking for a good BB with pleasant ambience and gentle, efficient service.
With all good wishes from Aurobindo Ghose & Family.
