We had an incredible experience staying at Green Hill Resort. It is truly world class but not very expensive. It is just perfect for vacationers who want a quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff is well trained and efficient.
We stayed 3 nights at Green Hill Resort before traveling to Ravangla. The hotel offered us more than we could ask for, modern amenities, 24×7 water, excellent food, and above, amiable behavior. Nice place to relax and rest before our long journey. Great for families!
Hotel ambience, rooms, service, location all were good. We are very pleased with their service. They value the customers. Also I went on an occasion so they have provided me additional facilities which made my stay all the more memorable. Process was so easy and hassle free.
