I don't write reviews, but I loved my stay at Chonor House. We have two very young kids and everyone was so accommodating. The staff were so wonderful, the food great and the rooms warm and comfortable. I do hope to return one day. Charming. Go.

If you want to feel like you're staying in an authentic Tibetan-Indian hotel when you visit McCleod Ganj, you simply cannot find a better hotel than this. In fact, the hotel is owned by a relative of the Dalai Lama, so when you sit on your balcony drinking tea, watching the monks doing their morning prayers at the Dalai Lama's... More

When you get to Dharamsala and McLeod Ganj, you are overwhelmed by the smell and poverty of the area, which is why you will be very greatful that this hotel exists. Run by Tibetan this is a very nice, small and safe hotel. Probably one of the best in the area. While comparatively speaking Chonor house is a great place... More

Each room is painted, by Master Tibetan artists, in a Tibetan tale or art form so you are surrounded by Himalayan light and fresh air and beauty. The staff is lovely. the hotel is across the road from the Dalai Lama's compound, within a walk from the Chowk, where the main shopping and eating take place and you will be... More

Blends into the surrounding environment on a hill near the Dalai Lama. Unsurpassed "service" if you appreciate kind attention and freshly prepared food over speedy results. Simple, lovely, unique, healing Tibetan hospitality.

Chonor house is undoubtedly a unique hotel. It is set in lovely grounds and is a haven from the hustle and bustle of McLeod Ganj itself. Each of the eleven rooms are individually decorated according to a theme either reflecting a region of Tibet or the flora and fauna of the country. The lounge is particularly attractive and there is... More

A small property close to the Dalai Lama's residence and handy for the local markets of McLeod Ganj. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms my friends and I were allocated were comfortable and spacious. The restaurant serves Tibetan based cuisine and is staffed by eager, smiling individuals who will do their best to talk to you although... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Chonor House. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the situation was convenient, and the service was of a very high standard with helpful, friendly staff throughout. We would certainly book Chonor House again

I beautiful hotel right near the Temple. The service is polite and friendly . The main market is far uphill which I felt was a good thing because we stayed away from all the hustle bustle. The rooms are very clean and well kept and has brilliant decor . We took the Wild Animals and it had a brilliant view... More
