Chonor House is a very comfortable place to stay in McLeod Ganj. My room didn't have the best view, but the artful decor, Tibetan hospitality and attention to creature comforts (cozy bed, wonderful shower and fine linens) made up for this. At one point, I had a scorpion in my room. When I informed a staff member, she promptly came... More

Although lacking in mountain views, this is the best and most comfortable place to stay. The decor and cafe environment are beautifull. As an artist, this was an obvious first choice just for the murals throughout each room in the house and creative ambiance. It is also quiet in case you visit at a busy tourist time, like I did,...

This is a very good Hotel to stay if you are looking for an overall Tibetian Hospitality experience. The location of the hotel is little far from the main happening street and you have to walk some distance to reach the market place. Food is superb and staff is very courteous specially the women. Hotel boutique is very expensive and... More

Chonor House is very close to HH Dalai Lama Temple and hence we could visit the temple twice a day during our three day stay. There is a steep climb to the lodging from the road and elderly might find it difficult.Room paintings were tastefully done.

Chonor house is like a home away from home. The rooms are brilliantly done and are comfortable and cosy. The staff is courteous and helpful and the food was awesome. Our stay at Mcleodganj wouldn't be so beautiful if it was not Chonor house. Thank you guys for making our vacation a memorable one. We would love to come back... More

Chonor house is a lovely property tucked away from the hustle and bustle of McLeod Ganj. It is very peaceful there and just a shame that you can hear barking dogs at night (pretty sure you would hear them anywhere in Mcleod Ganj as it sounded like they were near and far!). The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable... More

Chonor House ticks a lot of boxes in my book - it is centrally locates, offers great views, the rooms are beautifully done, and the staff is helpful and friendly. However, having said that, some might find the place a little over priced. The other thing, which families with children need to be mindful of, is that, the food is... More

The hotel was wonderful - all the staff were extremely hospitable, the very comfortable rooms, with their individual painted walls were stunning, and the food was very good. They also had good coffee. The outside terrace area was also very pleasant. It was in an ideal location, provided you had a driver who could manoeuvre up the narrow street. I... More
