In the village enjoy walking around, visit the Buddhist monasteries and schools. Also walk the Institute and have a look to the different craft courses. It was Relaxing. The... More

The property is beautiful. Their are a lot of wood carving ,wood painting and metal painting classes that one can do. The housekeeping staff of the guesthouse are very friendly. Special thanks to Sherpa who used to be at the reception during the evening. The worst part of Norling is the dinning room staff. The service and the attitude of... More

I looked up at various reviews before zeroing on this accommodation and I was not at all disappointed and wished if the stay could have extended. The rooms were beautifully decorated and overall the property gives a surreal feeling. There were many feedback's on the staff being laid back etc but on the contrary they were very friendly, welcoming, helpful... More

Recently, during our visit to Dharamsala, we took a 3 night stay at Norling Guest House. Though the place is ideal as per the tariff they offer, the only uneasy about the stay is power cuts at night without any back up. With no responsible person to attend post 7 pm, it gets a little disturbing in case if you... More

Its a place where nature is in its best form, a space rich with tibetian culture, architecture with unique structure and atmost comfort facility, workshop with finest craftsmen working calmly and in effecient light and people with fine hospitality.

We had a most enjoyable & comfortable stay thanks to a very efficient & warm hearted staff.The rooms are very comfortable & we enjoyed the food. We only faced problems when the power failed. I suggest they invest in a generator.

I found the restaurant/cafe staff to be lacking care. No one would be found at the ordering counter and they wouldn't on their own provide complete cutlery. I was also unhappy that I was told to check out at a particular time even when there wasn't any demand for the room.

To me the most serene and graceful place to be. Wish i could make my house there, be at peace to come to art and sharing... Norbulinka has a living soul in its air, rocks, people... Special thanks to Monlam for taking us around to all the art studios so gracefully. Thank You!
