The original Windsor Lodge was a hunting lodge built in 1909 amongst the thick and untamed forests of the region that were then teeming with wildlife. This retreat remained a prime favourite with the British and Indian upper strata of society till 1948, when a devastating fire reduced it to ruins. After half a century of neglect, renovation began on the Lodge in 1999. Painstaking efforts were made to restore the Lodge to its original architecture and hauteur, with solid blocks of stone in the rough hewn walls and liberal use of solid timber. Modern comforts were woven into this period style to maintain the best of both the old and new centuries and worlds.
The lodge is located at a vantage point on a wooded hillock with a commanding view of snow-capped mountains, thick pine and cedar forests and the sweep of the Ranikhet golf course. It is located in Kalika Estate, in the village of Dadgallia, on the outskirts of the Ranikhet cantonment town, just high and removed enough to seem remote and yet within easy reach of all the hill station’s amenities and activities.
26 luxurious suites and guest–rooms with en-suite bathrooms, including the popular Windsor and Robinson suites, with breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks.
The spacious and luxurious suites and rooms in the three restored buildings of this lodge retain all the charm, solidity and dignity of a more gracious era, further recalled and reinforced with the décor of period furniture. As it was renovated from a state of ruins, while it retains its original features, modern amenities and creature comforts were also fully integrated into the whole.
All the suites and rooms of this lodge recall the grandeur of the colonial era. The spacious and luxurious accommodation, with wood panelling walls, fireplaces set in stone hearths and period furniture, exudes warmth and solidity in total comfort.
