5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

I visited this resort along with my wife in May 2015 and stayed there for three days. I highly recommend this resort for anyone visiting dharamshala/mcloedganj. PROS- 1. Excellent views and homely. 2. Mouth watering home made food.(food needs to be ordered atleast 6hours before). 3. Very economical when compared to other resorts. (Rs.2000 for a night with complimentary breakfast).... More

Hotel was welcoming and friendly. Staff worked really hard. Food was very good, more and more expertly cooked dishes kept appearing at dinner, breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Plenty of interior charm in bedrooms and public rooms. Room was large and generally comfortable but the electrics were extremely worrying. Huge array of switches with no apparent function and sockets which... More

The first thing that hits you when you reach this property is the royalty. The rooms, especially room 4 and 5, are spacious and royally furnished. The food, always fresh prepared on order, is great and gives you a glimpse of Indian royalty.

When we arrived we were appalled at the state of the grounds,untidy pond - stagnant and the general dilapadated appearance. We were given a huge room...curtains hanging limply from the rail, furniture just about passable. Wanted to leave...but decided to give one night a try However with some soft velour blankets and a couple of hotwater bottles we had a... More

A Heritage Hotel that had inadequate or non-existent heating. The bathroom was functional except there was no glass in the window - the hot water boiler allowed a very fast shower or you would be rinsing in cold water. Eating is at a set time in the one dining room. One night the owner joined the group and then stayed... More

Our room was very basic with lino on the floor and nowhere really comfortable to sit (there was a very very low couch and a couple of hard chairs but sitting on the bed seemed preferable). Basic bathroom with erratic hot water was clean and functional. There seemed to be far more electrical switches than lights or appliances and finding... More

Arrived after a very long drive thru the foothills, greeted with wonderful cups of tea in the garden, room was massive, albeit a little short of light bulbs, heating was again by fan heater, but as we were up at 1700 metres, this was essential, yet another property without a washbasin plug or this time any face cloths. However the... More

The views were disappointing but a short walk along a path brought you to a most stunning vista. We werre there in February and it was cold. We kept our jackets on for breakfast and the staff had theirs on as well, despite two pitiful heaters. The food was good, the staff were willing if a little untrained. The bedroom... More

We recently stayed at this modest establishment, sold to us by the excellent views despite being 'basic'. The views - even without leaves on the trees, were poor. We FROZE! At dinner and breakfast we were served by waiters wearing outdoor coats. We kept our heater on all night and slept fully clothed. Throughout the establishment there were no carpets... More
