Loved the character, the café and all the sweet people working at Chonor House. My only complaint was the WIFI access was very spotty. The area is local to many great places. The Tibetan museum just down the street is a must!

Chonor House was a surprise, read a lot of reviews and finally booked it. Well its a great place to relax and our room had a great view of the valley below. All the rooms have a theme and the walls are beautifully painted which gives the room and the place a totally different feel. The food is good and... More

One of the best hotels in town. Beautiful - Tibetan art interior decoration, very friendly staff like a family business, very good location, near the main Tibetan Temple (3 minutes walk from back door) and near the center of the town (5 minutes walk from front door). Great view to the mountains and nice small garden at breakfast area. The... More

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
