Rooms are not too fancy. But certainly more than adequate, clean and spacious. Restaurant is good, but slightly on the expensive side. Especially try the local (Himachali) food. Hotel is localted in main Dharamsala Market. This is not a tourist area and not too much variety in food (restaurants) is available. Macleodganj (main tourist area) is a good 15 minutes... More

Excellent Location in the City. Simple Place without Airconditioners. Old Large Rooms. Could have been better with more fresh linen and toilets Good Restaurant with a view.. open air. Nice View of the Hills ... Best thing was the open lawn in front of each Room. Nice Parking Space in the Crowded City.

For first-timers, let me make it clear that Hotel Dhauladhar is located in lower Dharamsala, which is far below Mcleodganj, located in Upper Dharamsala. This was the only downside of our stay in the hotel because we wanted to spend more time walking through the Tibetan market in Mcleodganj. Now coming to our stay, the hotel has nice, clean and...

Nothing fancy to look at, but basic amenities, good food, and comfort, well in place. We checked into the 'Cedar suite', which was a spacious and clean accommodation, complete with a personal verandah. To start... More

Visited last week on a business trip and stayed here for a night. It is located just where we enter Dharamshala and all essential services are located just around this hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are big and grand size. Upper floor rooms provide good views of Dhauladhar mountain ranges.Food and services are good. Enjoyed my stay.

Good Things about the Hotels are 1) Its close to Market 2) Railway Reservation Centre is just outside the Hotel 3) HPTDC Bus Booking centre is also just outside the reception. 4) Some of the...
