Old rooms,furniture & fixtures and average service. But if you want good views of mountain range and do not... 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

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.
