Location of this hotel is good, away from the main market and rush of Dharamshala. The view from luxury cottages of Dhauladhar hills is excellent. The stay in the hotel was quite comfortable. The hotel needs to improve the variety and quality of the food.

Not sure what exactly is available in Dharamshala, either our cab driver ditched us by not showing anything or there really ain't anything. Dharamshala shown to us by our driver had an airport, a cricket stadium, a war memorial and a domino's pizza outlet. The TIbetian temple, some viewpoints, trekking paths are available in Mcleod Ganj which is 6 KMs... More
