This is the best place in Naggar to stay for, although the room rents are a bit on the higher side but definitely if you are choosing the proper room and time to visit this place then the experience could be exhilarating. The food and cleanliness is nearly royal and behaviour of the hotel staffs are commendable. Fozal peak view... More

The castle was once the residence of the Kullu raja's and then subsequently was sold to an englishman ( for a gun) who then sold it to the government who made it a court house before it was made into a hotel by HPTDC. It is small and compact and hence hardly a castle but has a quaint charm.It is... More

I stumbled upon this hotel when searching for accommodation in Manali area and booked two rooms (The Greenfield Suite and Tragopan Suite), since it was run by HPTDC and thus relatively cheap. We arrived at the hotel in the night and the staff were extremely helpful in settling us into the two rooms. Since it was dark outside, we only... More

Having ten centimetres of snow covering the valley and grounds was certainly adding to the "lady of the castle" feeling, that the hotel generates. My room had modern interior with balcony views into the courtyard (Ghanderkhani suite). Sound from a neighbouring room was very loud. Service was very polite, friendly, and efficient for me but my driver did not feel... More

It was an awesome view we had from the 'Green Field Suite'. We checked-in at night and had no idea about the view. We were so lucky to have a fine weather to capture the mind blowing atmosphere. P.S - Mutton dish is the best :D

After a steep ride up the slope we reached the castle ...which was very different from what we have here in rajasthan. The building is an architectural marvel , being built exclusively with timber and stone without the use of mortar. The views are breathtaking and the restaurant well set up. The food was good, especially the trout. The place... More

We visited the Castle by chance as we had to take this route from Manali to Kullu. We loved the place and we were impressed by its construction. We spent more than 2 hours enjoying its architecture and its musiem. Will love to visit the place again.

This is a heritage hotel which was once a castle. A very beautiful hotel with a panaromic view of the surrounding mountains. There is a small temple and a shop selling authentic woolen shawls inside the hotel premesis. It is a treat to have hot tea viewing the snow capped mountains from the balcony of the hotel. May be because... More

Naggar Castle is full of history. In addition to being a hotel, owned by the state of Himachal tourism department, it has a small museum open to visitors and a temple in the middle. The courtyard is most impressive and the views, as others have said, spectacular. The rooms are huge. I had "His Highness Suite". Not really a suite... More

For the best view of the Kullu valley, this is the only place... don't know why this place is still not in many of the tour plans.. Naggar castle (nearly 20 km away from Manali) is a good place to stay for atleast One day, and the restaurant is one of the best. Once a kings place, this Castle is... More
