This hotel is placed in the heart of the main Dharamsala town, but it still offers a fantastic view of the area from its balcony. The veg and non-veg varieties are plenty. I would personally recommend the Malai Kofta, its yumm! One can also order the local apple cider which is also okay. Chose this place to stay or dine... More

Went to Dharamshala and Mc Leodganj. weather was awesome with dark clouds covering the sky and backdrop the majestic Dhauladhar mountain ranges covered in snow. It was mesmerising . The hotel is located very close to market and a nice property with amazing view of Kangra Valley from their dining space. However the food and the menu needs improvement. Still... More

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
