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.

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
