Hotel is situated in lap of nature. Food and service ok. Difficult to reach in season as you have to enter from chowk. Nice scenery from location seen . Be little hard in dealing with hotel for charges

We chose this place for our recent weekend getaway and we were not at all disappointed. The place is in Dharamkot, which is about 2 kms uphill from mcleodganj main chowk,. The drive is exciting and the approach road to the hotel is rather steep, our honda city did touch the road once on our way down. To our surprise... More

an okay place to stay at dharamkot (ahead of mcleodgunj) ...getting to the place in the summer season is a pain (in fact going to any 'famous' hill station like mcleodgunj in peak summer is a bad idea as its overcrowded and there are heavy traffic jams) the hotel is decent and the value for money is not bad.... they...

We in a group of seven adults stayed in the hotel for three days from 24th-27th May, 2014. First of all it is a quiet place, surrounded by nature, no traffic chaos near the hotel, but the approach road is a bit difficult. The staff is very active and fast to serve all the rooms. Dr. Thakur, the Manager looking... More

The only 2 good things about this property is location and the size.the management has to spend some money on improving the approach road for cars. They badly need a Gardner as the lawns are very badly kept . The staff is good but only 2 people to serve 30 rooms . very poor maintenance . over priced.

Dev cottages is located 2 kms away from the hustle and noise from McLeodganj. The cottage faces the amazing snow capped mountains which is a treat as all the rooms face it. It is surrounded by the deodar trees which gives it a very cooling effect. The food and service is good here.The rooms are quite huge and can accomodate... More
