This is a beautiful hotel with every room in different Tibetan style decor. Service was superb and friendly and the rooms were tranquil and beautifully furnished. Comfy bed and good shower facilities. We ate at restaurant too which was reasonably priced and good choice. Definitely stay here - you will be overawed by the Art and Artistic pictures as well...

Chonor House was incredible - close to the Dalai Lama's temple, shopping and a beautiful view of the valley. I loved the staff, the rooms, the restaurant and ofcourse the location. Thank you for your care and support while I stayed with you!

I first stayed at Chonor House ten years ago, when I found it to be a haven of beauty and tranquility on a Himalayan hilltop. This time, whilst the rooms were just as beautiful, the service left a lot to be desired, and the rooms are starting to feel the effects of the last decade of use. They were still... More

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.
