The Chail Palace is a classic, magnum opus and a genuine serene space in the lap of Himachal. The hospitality shown by the palace people is exceptional. The food served is excellent. U may come here with family or friends and enjoy for hours and hours. I would suggest to come with a group of 4-10 people and have a... More

We stayed in log huts of this heritage mansion. The location is awesome and its huge. Beautiful and quite, whole area is either covered with tress or snow. This place is so quite and peaceful that you could hear birds singing around and feel the cold breeze. If you visit at peak time, you don't need to go outside of... More

We stayed at this Heratage Hotel in October on a three night break from Delhi... Firstly, its worth considering that this is a Government hotel... so dont expect the kind of standards and service you might expect to get in the private sector. Built in 1891 by the Maharaja of Patiala it is a blend of Western and Indian styles...... More

I we talk about this so this palace is a hotel cum an attraction point. The location of this is awesome. There is an entry fees of Rs.100/person over here and if you stay at this palace then those entry fee's can be adjusted in your room rent. We took deluxe log huts over here for 1 night and Rajkumari... More

Hello, I stayed in deluxe log hut during Feb last week and the stay was just perfect. Its far from daily chaos and one hardly encounters noise. Only concern is that the food was on a bit expensive side. I had the opportunity to see snow fall during my stay. Heaters are not upto the mark and I will suggest... More

The hotel is a little away from main Chail market. The Palace has different stay options like rooms in main palace complex, log huts and Rajgarh cottage. We stayed at the Rajgarh Cottage. Had taken up one of the rooms in it, the room is spacious. Interiors are color schemed. The Bathrooms are large as if made for prince and... More

The hotel is towards the top of a hill and hence, one can get a good view of the mountain range. However, the property needs renovation and service needs to be improved. Probably more cleanliness, updated, better service would make it par with other 5 star properties. Food is ok. Chinese food is better then Indian at their restaurant.
