We were on a tour with a group of 20 people. My room was on 2nd floor (203). Nice and clean room, everything provided for a comfortable stay. This hotel's biggest asset is its strategic location with a breath taking view of the mountains and valleys. Staff were very curteous and helpful, food was good and we even had made... More

The Surya McLeod provided a good base to walk into Dharamsala (5 mins) and explore further. It was really cold rainy weather so we were very appreciative of the effective aircon heating. The room was nicely spacious but dated, as is the whole building, but had amazing views down over the vales through a huge window (when the cloud cleared).... More

Stayed there for couple of nights and loved the hotel. It was clean and tidy, they are willing to serve and almost all hotel staff are good. Breakfast was good, other food is also good, it is located at 5 to 10 min walking distance from market but the road to hotel is not very steep, one can easily go... More

We stayed one night and were not impressed. The reception and restaurant staff have 'attitude' and seriously need to be trained about politeness, listening to the customer, getting meal orders correct, cleaning the tables, and taking a pride in their job. Our room was not clean and the pillow smelt. We were not convinced that the sheets were clean. The... More

We stayed here and celebrated our first anniversary in McLeod. We reached McLeod at 7 in morning and the hotel allowed us to check in this early without any extra charge. The service was quick throughout the stay. Rooms were clean and warm. Everything is a walk away from here. Food at restaurant was literally amazing. We opted for complimentary... More

It had to be the best choice for our stay recently. Surya has now been taken over by Pride Group of Hotels and are undergoing a change for the better. There are still a few (teething) problems - there's quite a lot of water wastage in getting hot water (which also is provided on timing basis), the heating in the... More

1. Lift - Extremely slow to be of use in a hotel this size. 2. Staff especially receptionist Rinku Mehra - RUDE - Probably, a hotel management course is recommended for him. Don't bother speaking to him much, he probably wouldn't understand you! Guess - he doesn't understand that we are paying him for the accommodation! Advice for the hotel... More
