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

Ok, the hotel is a little bit difficult to reach, but as we travelled in a group our luggage was handled by the staff. We liked the atmosphere of the hotel, the wall paintings, the friendly service people, the wonderful view from the balcony. Meals were tasty, breakfast wonderful. At the moment there is a lot of construction everywhere around... More

Real good Hotel, perfect decorated rooms, done by the School of Norbulinka Institute. Recommendation: your car stops downstairs and you have to get up a steep way. Call the Hotel to send somebody for your luggage.
