No doubt, Norling House was a great place to stay, when talking about the scenic grandeur of its garden area, compact yet beautiful corridors and highly culturally vibrant rooms (as depicted in the pictures on its official website!). The place is very neat and clean, offers what it promises, and the service too is pretty good. However what would need... More

Take in as much or as little Tibetan culture as you like on the surrounding grounds of the Norbulingka Institute and soak up the quiet and professional atmosphere. Planned the stay at the Norling Guesthouse hoping to escape the wild Indian weekend of Indian Independence and it did not disappoint. Very good food, great service and quiet, quiet, quiet. I... More

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.
