Overall there is nothing fancy about the hotel. It is pretty average with all the basic facilities you need. Rooms are quite dusty - we had to tell the hotel operators to actually come and clean our room. The food quality at the restaurant is below average - they really need to improve on the food quality. I wouldn't recommend... More

It is a property in the midst of the small lanes of Mcleodganj. In the city centre itself and very close to the Dalai Lama Temple. The food is good but not exceptional. Rooms and service is good. A nice place to stay. The view from the top rooms is good.
