Kingfisher is a place run by Haryana Tourism. It is located strategically, though if you are traveling from Delhi towards Chandigarh/Amritsar, you will have to go further and take a U turn to reach, which is a bit confusing, as it road bifurcates. So keep that in mind. It is located down the highway and has ample space for parking... More

Booked a room in Hotel Kingfisher, Ambala for a night while on the way from Delhi to Dharamshala. The location is nice, just on the turn on the highway when it branches into two roads, one for Chandigarh and another towards Amritsar. So it made perfect sense for us driving from Delhi to spend the night here and then continue... More

the rooms have been recently renovated and are good despite the furniture is still old. It is located on NH1 national highway and there is no eating place except sagar ratna. Public transport is not available from this hotel and also the rooms were not that much comfortable.

Stayed for 2 nights, decent place (although a bit worn out) to spend the night as its conveniently located bang on the highway which saves one from driving interior of any city. The place is managed and run by government staff so do not expect great service. Food is decent but just next door is a good place if you... More

Taxes are included in online booking. Difficult to locate this property on google maps. Also series of flyovers crossover at this point and you can easily miss it in darkness although there is a big lit... More
