Me and my friend needed a one day stay before we go towards heights . We always find comfort in government run guesthouses and hotels as they are simple and doesn't give much headache to find a comfortable stay. Dhaulandhar was perfect choice for laidback and families. View from restaurant is majestic when clauds fall from mountains and roll over... More

The Dhauladhar is exactly what a hotel should be, welcoming, cheerful, spacious with polite and friendly staff. The rooms were large, airy and well-lit. Delicious food and the Courteous staff made the experience even more memorable.

This is a HPTDC Hotel and The location is inside the main market - so everything is available nearby. We booked the best suite, but the Suites are facing backside and not hill facing. The foods are decent and good. The open resturant is awesome in morning, and also the view of Kangra Valley.

One thing about these Govt. Hotels - They choose the best possible location for themselves. Dhaluladar is located very strategically in the market, full scenic views, and ample parking space. We reached late evening and found our room very ready. The food is one of the best, neat and sufficient. We had booked the Triund Suite and it was huge,...sufficient... More
