Hotel has a correct standard. Rooms are cleaned and maintained. Good also to have a reliable internet connection, quite practical. Staff is quite helpful Food is also ok, maybe better/more options for breakfast. Good location for short stay and good enough for work purpose. Location is convenient.

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

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.

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.
