The Norling Guest House was such a peaceful treat, I almost forgot I was working! I arrived with a bit of "Delhi Belly" and the staff made sure that I was taken care of, checking in on me to make sure I was okay. Once better, the property was an amazing window into classic Tibetan art and architecture. I was... More

After the buzz and dust encountered in Delhi and Rajasthan we certainly enjoyed the peacefulness of the three nights spent at the norling Guesthouse at the end of March. The staff is very welcoming and willing to fulfill our requests always with a joyful attitude. The rooms were impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. We would not hesitate to strongly recommend...

We loved our stay at the Norling guesthouse last week. The rooms are beautifully done and are well equipped with heaters,etc and the staff is very hospitable and friendly.It was simply brilliant to go on walks around the guesthouse or to just sit by the cafe and read a book. It is located about 18 kms from MacLeodganj and about... More

Norling Guesthouse is run by the same folks who run Chonor house in Mcloedjang. This is a bit cheaper than Chonor, but resplendent with Tibetan culture. There is a monastery within the premise, lots of institutes with artists and artisans working away at paintings, furnitures, sculptures etc that depict Tibet and its culture. A very nice cafe tucked away in... More

The Norbulingka Institute is "The Place" to stay in if you want a place away from all kinds of hustle-bustle. We (a group of 4) stayed at their guest house for 2 nights 3 days. The greenery and beauty of the institute transports you to another world. It's so peaceful and quiet! The staff is very hospitable and the entire... More

We stayed at Norling Gusthouse, Dharamshala in Dec, 2013. It was great experience staying away from the hustle-bustle of McleodGanj and main dharamshala market. The guesthouse is very peaceful with nice rooms and pleasant surroundings. Rooms are clean and comfortable with all the main amenities. Guesthouse staff is extremely helpful and polite. Cafeteria food is good but menu is very... More

I returned to Norling after 8 years and was impressed with the upgrading of the rooms, which are done Tibetan style. The manager Sherab is extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He was very accommodating and understanding when we had to cut short our visit(unlike his counterpart at Chonor House). The restaurant was OK, but often didn't have... More

The rooms were works of are (literally!) and very comfortable. We had to get the room warm to start with as it was cold when we were there. The... More

Two out of a party of three got sick after eating in the restaurant here (December, 2012). Not really any alternative eating places nearby so it was a problem. No toilet seat or shower curtain / door didn't add to the experience.The service isn't great either. It's an attractive and peaceful place, but......not sure I'd recommend it
