We stayed at HPTDC “The Shiwalik” on the night of 02.10.2014. This hotel in Parwanoo is about 3 km from Kalka railway station, just after one enters Himachal from Haryana. We got 2 rooms on the 1st floor at the back side of the hotel. The rooms were fair. However, the lobby outside the rooms was poorly lit owing to... More

A good one in parwanoo, although not the best. But really like the stay. It was just for a day but even then wanted to stay here further to enjoy more. Taste the food as it is really nice and delicious. Roam around the hotel and you can spend some time here also.

The hotel is genuinely scary. It seems to be populated by drunkards who come there from miles around for a drink. The service is indifferent, the hotel is spacious but run-down. Can be used for a stopover for taking the Kalka Mail. However, it can get lonely and scary.

A HPTDC property is sadly not maintained properly. Parwanoo is not a vacation spot if your touring Himachal and should be used as a stop over. I chose a suit which was spacious but not properly maintained. Carpets were torned. The Room Heater stopped after an hour due to some short circuit. The food served is tasty and good.

The Hotel is not just Shabby or improperly maintained, it does not even seem to be a safe place to stay, in view of the reckless visitors there. The kind of visitors who come to this hotel are mostly drunkards and thus it is simply not safe to stay here. One of the attendants of the hotel, Mr. Atul Sood,... More

I would say this HPTDC property as one of the worst manages (being stayed in other HPTDC properties), maybe due to the fact that parwanoo is not a much visited tourist destination. I stayed there once with my family as night halt while driving down from Shimla to Noida. But the experience was not so great. It was more or... More

Stayed in the Suite room for a night while going up the hill. The hotel is placed right on the highway just after the Himachal entry barrier & so is a very convinient & reasonable place to break your journey while going further up the hills. The hotel is visible from the highway itself & to enter inside is a... More

We booked this place through Make My Trip. My first advise. Avoid booking this hotel through Make My Trip at any cost. Make My Trip charges a premium and the hotel owners give you the lousiest room to make their ends meet. The room we were given was horrible and depressing. The bed linens were soiled and shady and reminds... More

Very badly maitained, mattresses were dirty, toilets stinking and though the rooms booked were of same category(Cozy Deluxe), but the actual rooms provided were of different sizes though the reception staff insisted that they were of same categoriy and the money was also charged as per booking.

Parwanoo is a small villege turned industrial town just 2 km from Kalka. If you are driving to Shimla, you may probably not even notice this place. I went there on a business trip. It is a government run hotel, quite old but well maintained building. Like in any other govt run hotel, you can get service only if you... More
