The view offered is really nice but property is not maintained professionally. You need to have your own transport. Prices of the rooms is really exorbitant comparing with other nearby resorts. Rooms offer bare minimum facilities.

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

Recently (June 2 to 5th) we had been in Dharamshala and booked this hotel through their delhi office for three days with 50% advance payment. 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.
