Our welcome was warm and so was our room, because it was bitter cold outside. Everything was well presented and clean, and the bathroom was excellent. The sitting room could have had better seating. Hard daybeds are not a proper substitute for chairs. Sadly the restaurant let down the hotel. It was really poor. The location was a thoroughfare for... More

Staff were attentative and helpful, so no complains there st all. However, there were many details of my room and the restaurant that felt a bit neglected. Like others I... More

Our stay in this so beatifull and quiet chönor house was delicious and only at 5 min from his Holyness temple. It has been a meaningfull way to bring together our own comfort and a support to the tibetan community.

Conor House is a magical place. The rooms are all painted and furnished by highly skilled Tibetan artists training at the Norbu Linka Institute, and all proceeds go towards their training. How better to support their good work than to stay in the sublime comfort of Chonor House? The hotel is up a steep slope from the Main Temple in... More

Everyone was friendly helpful in this peaceful enclave overlooking Mcleod Ganj. You can get misty views of the mountainside on your walk to a delicious breakfast at their cafe. Take a stroll down the street to a lovely sprawling array of shops and market stands selling beautiful Tibetan-and-Indian-made jewelry, clothing, religious statuettes, and much more. I felt warm and cozy... More

Very friendly, helpful staff, great rooms on a quiet street, delicious food at the restaurant or through room service, all at a very reasonable price. I would totally recommend staying at Chanor House!

The Nomad Room greets you with wall paintings that catch your eyes and attention. So much that we couldn't just "go back to the room a minute ". Tea on the terrace is another feast for the senses. The servings are both generous and delicious.

This is a nice property, with big clean and nice rooms. Washrooms are near and clean too with good supply of hot water all the time. Reception is not 24 hours.... It's bit of a steep walking high from the main lane so either you drive by car every time to reach the main gate of hotel or prepare to... More

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.
