I had heard about Chonor House & looked forward to staying there , & had booked in full knowledge that some renovation was being done & every care was taken to make sure there was no disturbance. I arrived in the early hours as I had to travel from Delhi by taxi as planes were unable to land due to... More

This was my second visit at chonor house. I had come here almost 5 Years Ago. I was very keen to experience the same clean, comfortable and a delightful stay but it appeared to me on arrival that chonor has dropped down its quality. There were no real smiles and positive energy as before. Those paintings were there as before... More

My friend had praised a lot about this place after reading many views on Tripadvisor . but on arriving the place story was completely different. 1. The location is very steep as equal to a trek. It was really wet and slippery. 2. The biggest disappointment was the rooms. As soon as we kept foot it was full with moisture... More

Wonderful location. A fee things to the Chonor House staff: finding the entrance of the hotel can be better. Also the vedsheets were not clean at all. I don't expect a 4 or 5 star hotel but dirty bedlinen... However the best breakfast in almost 3 weeks time in India

This hotel captures the wonderful vibe of McLeodGanj which is a magical place that seems untouched by time and the outside world. Chonor House maintains a lot of ethnicity to give tourists an authentic experience, but still has all the conveniences that a traveller would look for: comfortable rooms, efficient service, wifi and a good in house restaurant. The hotel... More

My friend and I were there in mid July. Initially we booked for four nights but even before the first night, we cancelled our booking. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't let us cancel the booking without paying cancellation fees. We ended up finding a middle way - we had to stay for two nights. We really appreciated it when the hotel... More

Chonor House is a beautiful hotel that is affiliated with the Norbulingka Institute. The entrance is located up a small alley across from the entrance to the main Dalai Lama temple. Each room has its own theme and is decorated with Tibetan art and textiles--just gorgeous. Friendly, helpful staff. The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious and they had... More

You got almost the treat of a 4 to 5 stars hotel in the heart of Mcleod Ganj at very reasonable rates. it seems all rooms are unique, my room was very big, with all comfort, no TV (I appreciate this), it would be a crime to watch TV near the Dalai Lama"s residency.There is a nice restaurant with an...
