Excellent stay at this very interesting place. The day we arrived it was a bit cold so we were surprised to find a lovely hot water bottle in the bed. The rooms were decorated in a Tibetan style which was great. It is a small place , with good food and fantastic staff.

We've just enjoyed a wonderful one night stay at Chonor House and really can't praise it enough, everything was perfect for us. On arrival the staff were so warm and welcoming (which to be honest was a refreshing change as reception and other hotel staff we've encountered whilst travelling around India weren't particularly helpful or welcoming). The restaurant downstairs serves... More

If you like Alastair Sawday places then you will love this, very traditional (if I knew what Tibetan hotel tradition was) but still very nice, service in the restaurant was a little slow, but the food was very good. The room was very quaint (loved the décor) and we loved the hot water bottle in the bed touch. On the... More

The rating system here has to be considered carefully as I have rated both this hotel and the one we stayed at in the city of Amritsar as very good. However, they don't bear any resemblance to each other. The city hotel had opulence, this has tradition, and both have qualities in their own right. Chonor House is a hotel... More

As many previous guests have mentioned the rooms are wonderfully decorated with paintings depicting varied Tibetan scenes. Very close to the Temple so you'll probably be woken to (delightful) sounds of monks chanting. Very steep approach from the road and loads of steps on site so not one for the physically challenged. It was bitterly cold when we stayed (despite... More

I stayed in Chonor house only for one day but found it amazingly comfortable. The room was very beautifully decorated with carpets and sceneries. The bathroom was amazingly comfortable , i really feel fully relaxed in the room. however one has to walk upstairs a lot to reach to the hotel but when there, it is very comfortable. Also, one...

A charming, warm and welcoming place. Each room is decorated in an original style and the outdoor area for guests, with its interesting outlook, we found quite congenial. The staff were most helpful including having the hotel car available for us at an early hour when we left. The restaurant was a bit chilly but the food and service were... More

Chonor house staff were warm and welcoming .The room was large ,brightly furnished and clean.This hotel is not luxurious but comfortable enough. The dining room was pretty cold but the staff were aware of this and one night suggested that we have dinner in our room where it was warmer. Food was fine. I especially liked the hot water bottle...
