We stayed at this hotel for one night . It has a lot of character which is why I think it costs so much. Other than its cute looks the hotel doesn't offer much more. The food was over priced and not that great. I would not recommended staying here for a long time period.

Looked great on the net ! An overpriced rip off in the name of heritage , influenced more by Rajasthan than Himachal ,The furniture fittings and decor are bargain basement quality albeit they have some of their color theory correct ,in bits looks straight out of a Victorian Interior design manual! Though the finish is pathetic to say the least... More

Grace Cottage was an off beat choice for a hotel in Dharamshala as most travel agents seemed to miss out providing this hotel. However, I am glad we went ahead and stayed here. Grace Cottage is not for someone who is looking for a conventional -high luxury- convenient hotel. It has a soul and character that distinguishes itself from the... More

Though the first look of the hotel in terms of its surroundings was a bit scary and made me uncomfortable, I njoyed my stay once I was in it. The rooms were very spacious and had a very ethnic feel to it and the service was good but in winters there could be an issue with availability of hot water... More

An interesting hotel building with considerable charm and a great view over the city. It is a converted home and has a great deal of character. When we visited during September one of the unfortunate drawbacks was the marked humidity in all the rooms, right down to the sheets and pillows. Dehumidifiers would greatly increase the comfort of the accommodations.... More

This was one of my favorite places to stay on a recent trip to India. My girlfriend and I stayed her for four nights, and we both loved everything about Grace Cottage. First of all, it's just a beautiful property, with rich history, and a great deal of character. The room we stayed in was the "Prime Minister of Kashmir"... More

Good first impression .....heritage exterior and interiors. As u move around the cozy spaces you know it is an ancestral home converted for commercial use. Interiors are a little in the face but do a good job of projecting family and property legacy. We were booked for 6 nights and were given a room on ground level....didn't like it at... More

My wife and I stayed at Grace Cottage hotel for one night during our recent Himachal trip. The hotel is an ancestral home and is about 200 years old. The hotel is located in Old Chari road and is quite difficult to locate. The approach road to this property is a tiny lane and we were wondering if any hotel... More

On first seeing this hotel it looks like fairy tale hotel in a fairy tale setting. It is all of that until you get closer acquainted  with it, the setting is great with fabulous views of the mountains but and it is a big but, cleanliness does not feature high up on their agenda. Stayed two days and couldn't face... More
