Out of town in a peace and calm location. Good view of the Dharamshala Town, International Stadium and the Kangra Valley. Good Food, ambiance, location, service. Do not forget to carry your swimming costumes with you as you would love to enjoy the swimming pool at the top of the hills. Should travel by a vehicle/taxi as being out of... More

Also got cheated on rates books online through clear trip- as the hotel guy gave a bill for 20% less rate and than apologized saying you booked online so total fair applicable. There are lot of mosquitoes in the hotel and... More

We travelled to Dharamsala as a family in the first week of June 2014. The hotel is closer to Dharamsala than McLeodgunj...but not in walking distance from any of these places. However, at the end of whole day's sight seeing it felt great to come back to a quite ambience. We booked rooms, instaed of cottages as we were told... More

Great place to stay at! Infact it is one of the few good places to stay in Dharmshala. It was a great hotel, with good rooms and surroundings. We were four families who went together. There are three categories of rooms, suggest one should certainly take Luxury room or Luxury Cottage as they are the ones which are recently renovated.... More
