We stayed during September 2014.The property has a huge lawn with birds chirping....perfect for nature lovers like us! were witness to a wonderful himachali wedding ceremony as an added bonus. Room conditions and cleanliness have ample space for improvement. Meals served in the restaurant was hot and fresh. Overall a good experience.

Although location is little isolated but very beautiful. Spending our mornings in hotel premises was... More

I read the reviews and booked this hotel. The property is good but badly maintained given that it is the official guest house of HP government. We were there on the night of the first snowfall of 2014. Lucky us but really not so. Electricity was out, the room allotted to us had no backup. The whole hotel was lit... More

Stayed here with family for one night. We had taken the super deluxe room which was similar to a one BHK apartment. Spacious room and large bathroom. My 1.5 year old son had all the world to run around. The hotel has a beautiful lawn and the old world charm adds to its beauty be it the corridors or the... More

A decent heritage Hotel at an isolated Hill top. Dis-Advantage : a) Distant from Mall Road, and no communication, if own vehicle is not available. b) The entrance being through VIP area and near to Vidhan Sabha, are mostly blocked in daytime and during VIP movements, and when Assembly is in session. The toilet would have been cleaner, though modern... More

A visit to this hotel reminds you of the famous adage "Govt has not business to be in business". Let me tell you the plus point first. This is a heritage building, of colonial era. Beautiful. Rooms are huge and bathrooms are pretty big. We were given room heater which worked well and there was running hot water throughout. Having... More
