The Chail Residency is ideally located and offers a good view, the rooms are spacious and elegant. The staff is also very nice and helpful. It is the best hotel in Chail in terms of Budget, ambiance and location. I highly recommend Chail Residency

- Budget it good. - Service is okay. - Food is not so good. - Water heater problems are there. - Staff is not so co-operative. Location is good, quite one, scenery outside is great to see. But nothing much to see near-by except some market and chail palace.

The rooms are big in size but not nicely maintained.Bedsheets are not clean & the small attached balcony has chairs which are not cleaned since ages.The view is only good from a couple of rooms which...

I'm baffled to know that many people have rated this place as outstanding. Seemed average at best to me, with basic amenities. I also got tricked into signing up for the place thinking its close to Shimla but its good 45km away. The thing where the place is good at is at it's cost and the views that you are... More
