This is the worst HPTDC hotel we ever stayed. The property clearly lacks renovation. The room was big but not clean. Bed sheet was dirty. Carpet is torn. Bathroom was good. But the towels have bad smell – seems used by some other guest. The stuffs are helpful though. In food the Alu paratha was good. The positive side of... More

The hotel is situated at a magnificent location having marvellous views of the valley and meadow. The best part about this hotel is the manager who goes out of his way to help you in times of need. It being a government hotel, there were shortage of quilts and heaters, so Mr Vikas Dutta bought new quilts and also medicines... More

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.

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

Linen is poorly maintained it will difficult to sleep. The paint is peeling off at several places. it is good example... More
