To me the ideal place to calm down, enjoy nature in the huge park, visit places nearby (sightseeing, downtown McLeod Ganj and several meditation centres) and enjoy the simple, fresh foods that are prepared to order. Mr. and Mrs Singh are both wonderful and attentive hosts.

I wished I couldve stayed at this property to give a proper perspective about it but instead was so offput with the telephonic conversations had with the owner that I decided to give it a miss. Therefore please note that the rating is solely based on the behaviour/rudeness of the owner and not upon the facilities, location or ambience of... More

Spent wonderful three nights in picturesque location far from dean & bustle of cities even of Mcleodganj. We had to ourselves a two storey cottage with large sitting & bedrooms. Rooms are elegantly managed with a clean attached bath. Food served in the dining hall was like home food. The owner is a helping gentleman with a grace. A place... More

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
