Good place to stoppover on Chakrata Road. Our work interest took me and my business partner a few times this side of Dehradun from Delhi. Instead of entering the city, we wanted to stay in a place enroute. Competent was one of the two options in Selaqui, a reasonable 3 start stay - don't expect too much, but everything is... More

Stayed for one night as the hotel was close to Doonga village, where I was meeting with friends. In the early hours of the morning of 28 Mar 2015, I was asleep and woke up on hearing the door being opened, fortunately just in time as someone had got into my room. I asked who are you ? and what... More

Situated in the industrial zone of Uttrakhand- Sela quin, this property has been well maintained. The crowd is mostly of people visting nearby factories. The rooms are spacious for a single person though the size and quality of bed and mattress need to be better. I have visited this hotel many times, and felt that the quality of food has... More

One must enjoy stay here. It is in route between Paonta and Dehradun. Lot of greenery in the area. It is very near to Selaqui Pharma city. About 20 kms away from dehradun railway station. The hospitality is excellent but food is like multinational restaurants i.e. Less spicy.

Well the hotel looks great from outside. But once you stay there, you come to know about the flaws. Room service is horrible. Staff is not competent to run the hotel. TV is there but all I got was one channel and that too DD News. The heater was not working properly. The restaurant has veg as well as non... More

I stopped in Spice Hotel at Selaqui, Dehradun based on reviews. However, nobody mentioned that Spice was pure Vegetarian and without a Bar, so I shifted to THE COMPETENT PALACE. Well, it was good that I did so. The place is an oasis in the desert. Good ambience, comfortable rooms with a fantastic view, all basic comforts catered for, a... More

DON'T STAY HERE. The staff have no idea how to run a hotel. I expect hot water in the evening (when it's been requested) and air conditioning that works; we had neither. And worst of all was that a staff member walked into my room when I was alone and sleeping (my husband was off trying to get the aircon... More

I have stayed in this hotel 2-3 times earlier. It was never a 'vow' hotel but it was reasonably good. However, this visit was a disaster ! The hotel standards have plummeted to rock bottom. I had to change my room on the first day as the A/C did not work. In the new room the wash basin tap was... More
