My experience there was excellent. Staff was very cooperative. Rooms were clean. Food was also good. +1 for Dipankar (Hotel owner) as he helped us in many things, we had so many requirements like arrange a bonfire outside, drinks, snooker etc and he didn't refuse for even a single request. Enjoyed our stay and enjoyed a lot there. Don't go... More

We booked hotel through online. Surprisingly this is not that bad as portrayed by many reviewers here. I feel one needs to compare with available hotels in Dharamshala rather with Corporate chains as there are none here.. The rooms are well maintained and the service is responsive. Linen is clean and rooms are well kept. It has an attached pool... More

We stayed three nights and it was a delight. We had an upper floor room with a view and could not have chosen a better location. The room was very clean and the breakfast was one of the best - just don't compare it to around food as not much beats that! Perhaps best of all were the girls who... More

Being an Indian citizen, I have traveled half the world staying at budget hotels. I have traveled extensively in India. The Royal Palace Resort is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in in my life! I had to leave town because of the unpleasant experiences! Here's why - a) It's not a resort b) Property is in total disarray. c)... More

The property is in a miserable condition. Don't go by the pictures you see on the internet. Rooms though spacious but are not maintained. The pillars and the walls were cracked, the view from the room was not worth watching.....you can see only shabby houses and heaps of garbage. Bath rooms were in a very bad condition too as the...
