The hotel location is excellent within the stadium premises. My club room view was the best i ever seen....the full view of the stadium and the snow capped mountains as the backdrop. The multicuisine restaurant has its own charm...the rich decor gives you a different feel. The food is also very good.

The hotel is situated in the premises of the Cricket Stadium. That's the very nice thing. Well maintained altogether. The room which was given to us was at the end, and was at such a nice place that we could observe the nature in a very very nice way. It was a marvolous experience. The surroundings were too nice as we could observe the whole sports complex, which is made beautifully.

Room Tip: Last room towards the high mountains end is marvolous.

I stayed in a club room from 29.12.2013 for 3 nights while a Ranji Match was on . The look from the room is spectacular , beautiful ground , nice pavilion , colorful stands and in the back ground stand the Dhauladhar mountains .
The room is adequate sized but the toilet could have been more spacious with a few more toiletries.
The restaurant menu is majestic but more than 50% of the dishes are not available !!
The breakfast buffet is not lavish and is dull ... This was a minus experience indeed . This is compensated to some extent by good and prompt service and whatever the chef cooks he does well !!
Bar is deficient in many ways too ...
Travel from here to main market is easy and Macleod ganj is app 10 kms.
I recommend this to my fellow travellers .

Good things to start with- Excellent location. Truely magical to enjoy your drink sitting in the balcony looking at the stadium and snow covered mountains. Awesome view.
A very nice gym and for the food i would say good but not excellent. You can enjoy at every place they have. Their sports bar and restrauant is very nice. Excellent staff. Nice and humble.

Things that need improvement- The rooms are nice but not as good as the price paid for. Prabably they are charging for the location and the stadium though its worth giving a shot. Also the rooms are not sound proof. You can hear the sound of TV from the next room.

The indoor games are chargeable so a bit of disappointment there.

Well its a place you can enjoy max when you are with your friends and family especially when the season is on.

Apart from the fact that the rooms were pretty decent, the cricket fan inside me got a high staying in one of the club rooms of an international cricket stadium. The snow capped mountain view from the property is good too. In room dining was a little slow but pretty good, considering not too many dine out options in Dharamshala. We stayed there for a night bcos the property was sold out for the second night and to me it was a blessing in disguise. A trip to Mcleodganj probably makes the place worth a visit.
Do not expect very 'hotel service' from the place, the staff just somehow does not seem to have that orientation. they were to the point but definitely not rude.

Went out their restaurant..... Amazing view with good ambience. I think the view will only get better when the over looking towering Dhauladhar ridge gets snow covered. Food was also good though a little costly. Good service and courteous staff. Will visit the place again.
