Peaceful and quiet in the midst of a beautiful forest, yet close to the Mcleodganj market. Ideal place for a perfect vacation. Highly recommended. Simple meals cooked in little oil make for healthy eating. Lovely walks within the property.

We went there with family (group of 8) in March 2015. Our first visit to the place was in 2010 and we always wanted to go back again. Mr. Singh offered us the new double cottages, which were brand new and very nicely furnished. The staff was very courteous and went our of their way to ensure our comfort. The... More

Very nice place to be at. Secluded, calm and scenic. Highly recommended for Honeymooners or Couples without Children (there is nothing for children to do here). This place is so beautiful that you can actually see the clouds entering into your cottage. Little far from the City Centre but Taxi is available at ease by the Hotel only for Rs... More

This place has a great location and decent rooms but is owned and operated by extremely money-minded people. With buses arriving in town from Delhi at 5 am they try and impose a policy where early check-in more than 6 hours before noon incurs a whole day's rent (which rent itself is already exorbitant). Don't even talk about the food.... More

We visited Glenmoor Cottages in mid June 2014 and stayed for 3 nights and 2 days. We were completely enamored by the very beautiful location of our clean and cozy small cottage. But the owners appeared to be extremely greedy, money-minded, unhospitable and looked for every minute opportunity to extort money. We had a driver with us due to which... More

Glenmoor cottages are located beyond McLeodGanj - a 20 minute climb on foot, mostly along a quiet track, into the forest trees. (or 5 minutes by car). For us this was the appeal - away from the bustling bazaar, peaceful green surroundings, bird song, walking. There are 3 small cottages, 3 larger ones, and another larger one under construction. Facilities... More

We stayed at glenmoor last year. The cottages were beautiful, large and very clean. By far the best available in Mclo. Inspite of the beautiful location the view is limited to trees and dense forest. They charged us 6300/- per cottage which is very expensive for the services they offer. The most absurd thing about this place....The owner charges an... More

As friends we travel to get the most out of a location. This new year was no different and Glenmoor did not disappoint. Yes the cottages on the top are bigger and more fun and yes they do charge extra for the extra heater(which you will need as it hailed and snowed while we stayed there) or extra hot water... More

There are so many things to appreciate: 1. The location is just perfect, a short drive (or walk) from the main town, but secluded and tucked away behind the Deodars so you feel you are miles from anywhere. We drove up to the Eagle's nest route and took photos of the cottages- they really look out of the world. 2.... More

I was staying at another place in Mcleodganj and had gone to spend time with a friend who was living at Glenmoor. It is located a little away from the market, but overlooks a hill and is quite amazing. At night, it gives an almost spooky feel. The food was very good and so was the service, even at midnight.
