We spent an unscheduled night at the hotel having left the Chonor House due to the dreadful night's sleep we had had due to noise. Sidhu the manager is a delight, a true gentleman and could not be more helpful. This hotel could be absolutely amazing, as the location and views are stunning, and it is incredibly peaceful, but it... More

White Haven Estate is more like a guest house than a hotel. With only 8 rooms and a small staff, it is a curious little place. It is well out of town, so you can't just wander into town for a look around. After checking in around mid afternoon, we had a knock at the door to ask what we... More

On reaching Dharamshala ( Temperature of around 34 -35 that day) we found that the hotel does not have air conditioner or fan. Pedastal Fan, they provide on request .We thought not checking into this... More

I stayed at White Haven two years ago and this week. It's a wonderful spot, amazing views and a lovely house and gardens. Views are superb. However we did feel a bit like we were in the way of the staff who seem to be running the place for their convenience. Even trying to get all the residents to have... More

White Haven Estate is located away from the hustle and bustle of the main Dharamshala or Mc Leodganj crowd. Its nesteled in a tea estate and has a wonderful view of snow clad mountains from most of the rooms. It is not a luxury resort, so dont expect much, but it is clean and comfortable for a good stay. Also,... More

We stayed at this location as part of a wonderful 17 day private tour organised by Mr V P Singh of the Indian based company 'Legends and Palaces '. The location is delightful. The bedrooms are large with wonderful views but the bedding could do with some upgrading. The same could be said of the bathrooms. The restaurant meals were... More
