The property has a great location - right opposite the main plateau in khajjiar - very picturesque. The rooms are big. Food is decent. Staff is just about manageably decent. The rooms are very poorly maintained - feels like they have not changed their furnishings, linen and towels since ages.

An awesome hotel in an excellent location. Service is extra ordinary and staff is very helpful. Mr Vikas Datta, Manager goes out of the way to help you in need. We had one of our group members fall ill, and the hotel staff went out of their way to facilitate a doctor and source medicine from Chamba which is 24... More

Great location and brilliant service. This property property is located in prime location with awesome view of the lake and the meadow. However, the whole hotel needs overhauling, rooms need complete renovation. We faced major problem with electricity supply, geyser and bathroom lights don't work together due to voltage shortage. Intercom were not working. I feel HPTDC should think about... More

It is one of the best place in Khajiar to make a hotel and restaurant. But that ends there only. The place seems to have never been cleaned . one can see empty bottle lying behind the hotel . Linen is poorly maintained it will difficult to sleep. The paint is peeling off at several places. it is good example... More

Specially we must mention one name Mr. Vikas Datta, Manager , Himachal Pradesh Tourism khajjiar hotel. Himachal Pradesh... More

Great location and brilliant service. The rooms are however now in a state of disrepair. The hotel is sitting on a prime location and the overall experience could really be enhanced by some major overhaul. Service was very courteous, friendly and heartwarming. Sanjay is a wonder in this regard. A bundle of energy that single handedly manages the show. It... More

If you are in Dalhousie or rather anywhere in the Chamba District of HP, Khajjiar is a must visit. I would recommend the summers to go there because you can enjoy the meadow at its greenest. We, however, went in the winters but that was great as well because we came looking for snow, and voila, we found it on... More

There is a lot of difference in opinion whether one should spend one night in Khajjihar or will have a day trip from Dalhousie. I congratulate myself that I decided to stay at Khajjihar and that too at the hotel Devdar. Most HPTDC HOTELS have good location. Hotel Devdar is no exception . It is easily the best located hotel...

The staff was really helpful and professional. The view from the rooms was amazing. The field outside the room provided for brilliant entertainment. All the rooms were well designed and comfortable. The staff helped us a lot. There is a problem with the hot water supply though. The food while okay, is not that well made. Only radiators are provided... More
