HPTDC has got it quite right with this hotel--the location, the services, the tariff, the bar, and so on. Instead of writing subjective words, I'm quickly providing ratings for various aspects of hospitality in this hotel. For the rest, I shall let the uploaded photographs do the talking. Cleanliness and hygiene: 4/5 Tariff during peak season or in off-season: 4/5... More

Its so well located right in the main city of dharamshala that you ignore rest of deficiencies..Its not very neat and clean but one has no option in dharamshala to have a better place. Food is good. The hotel management functions just like any Indian government outlets.I would prefer to stay again only because of its central location nothing else.... More

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

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
