Friendly staff, clean rooms, at beautiful location though a bit far away from Mcleodganj, consider Rs. 150 (USD 2.5) for taxi to commute between hotel and Mcleodganj. We didn't mind to pay this as we really enjoyed the peace around hotel facing the mountains. Only negative point is rooms were without heating arrangement. We booked the Deluxe room. Though the...

This place is located in Naddi village, which is about 6-7 kms from McLeodganj. I would not recommend it if you are not keen to trek long distances, although I enjoyed walking from McLeodganj to Naadi which certainly also helped build my appetite. The food here was awesome, especially the variety of paratha's and tea that they serve in the... More

The service is good and the place is fine. We just realized that is far from Mc Leod, on the other hand the good thing is that is a peaceful place. The taxi are expensive (comparing with other cities in India - a full day taxi is 2200$ - about 35 dollars - when is out of season) and you... More

Enjoyed the few days we had at Snow Crest this May; great value for money, excellent home- cooked food, superbly attentive staff, very clean and on top of it all, astonishing views of the snowline and the countryside. Not fancy, but the location doesn't need a star-rating. The surroundings and the views have the ratings that count - seven-star. When... More

Food is awesome, the hotel owner and staffs are very approachable and helpful. The way they treat the guest, you wont feel its a hotel and those people are new to you but its... More

This is small hotel in Naadi. The property is quiet and nice. The Manager Mr. Vinod and his team ensures that the guests are comfortable. Give a minimum of 30 minutes to the food order, as the food is made to order.

Close to Mcleodgunj and main lower commercial Dharamshala, this hotel is highest part of Dharamshala with close view of snow capped mountains. Trekking areas are close by to Gunadevi temple. Good budget hotel, good service and great surroundings.
