There's a big problem in McLo for parking a car.This is a budget hotel with good parking space.Rooms are not so clean but just OK.No maintenance regarding bathrooms.preparation in restaurant is good. But problem is that is closes early at night, nearly at 10 pm.Overall you can spend a night here with not so much difficulty.

The hotels website boasts abt good rooms which are pathetic, good food and i would say a dhaba food is much better , no... More

Unfortunately this was one of the low points of our vacation. Though the property is beautiful and the location good,the services lag way behind. In fact the only positive thing is that the rooms have a good view, the food is good in taste and the owner himself is polite and listened to our complaints later. From the start I... More

Hotel looks good from outside. Immediately after checking into the room, looked into the bathroom commode - it was not at all cleaned. I had to call the hotel reception to get it cleaned. Even after they cleaned it yellow stains were still there in the commode. This was the first time I had such a bad experience of bathroom... More

We were here from June 4th to 6th June and enjoyed the stay and service of this fantastic property. The staff was humble and the accommodation comfortable. The best part is the owner himself takes interest in the daily affairs of the hotel which makes a big difference. The food rates are bit on the higher side with government taxes... More

We stayed in Hotel Royal Palace for our McLeod ganj visit. Though the hotel is far from the Buddhist settlement, it is near to Bhangsu naj temple and waterfalls. The reception gave us a warm welcome with welcome drink and check in was done very fast. The staff at reception staff came to our room and ensured that everything was... More
