It has good well appointed rooms, a reasonably good restaurant & a bar.All the rooms are centrally air conditioned . It has a business center as well as 3 Conference... More

This hotel was huge and yet there was hardly anyone staying there. We soon found out why. The rooms were not clean. The windows in our room were not sealed properly and let in a huge draft. The curtains in the room were closed when we arrived in the afternoon. On opening them we found out why .... there was... More

Stayed at Competent Palace during a business visit, rooms are quiet spacious, however not so clean, towels, linen are old and not in good condition, no much choice in breakfast. There is no much choice in the area so still OK for a stay of 1 or 2 nights. Staff is helpful and friendly, they want to make you comfortable... More

The hotel is located in one of the industrial area, selaqui, which is at least 20 kms. away from the city. Not recommended if you have to attend work in the town or you are a tourist. The rooms are average... More

This was the hotel we used to go when we wanted to have some drinks and non veg, during my recent stay in DDN. The hotel looks very nice and the bar and the restaurant although not very fancy, did offer some very nice good food. Price of the liquor is also good if you notice that they serve 50ml... More

This was my first visit to Dehradun, with friends. I booked the hotel after surfing the net and I must confess that I was influenced by the image of the hotel entrance to a large extent. My experience about Indian hotels had taught me that seldom do the images of hotel rooms on the net resemble the actual rooms The... More
