1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

I had booked 2 rooms in this hotel for my brother and his family. Due to some error the money transfer could not materialize but the clerk Rajat mahajan who was corresponding and talking on phone assured till his family reached Pathankot that rooms would be made available and that money could be paid on arrival or transferred on Monday. But the family reached dalhousie the same man changed tracks and refused to give room. He was rude and unapologetic.He had apparently sold the room to higher bidder! such honesty. Long way to go Monal!! My brother was ready to pay in cash but the man's greed knew no bound! steer clear of this hotel.

me and a couple of friends of mine stayed at Hotel Monal for 3 days, we booked online and got a amazing deal. We booked the Super deluxe room, which was tastefully furnished but the biggest incentive was the amazing view of the snow clad mountain. We overall had a nice time.

Room Tip: book super deluxe rooms

We stayed there for three nights and booked the accommodation and some sightseeing together paying 50% advance. We reached Dalhousie by Bus, then took a porter to reach hotel via Subhash Chowk. This stretch was very long and we became tiresome but later we found that the hotel is very near (3-4min walking distance) from the Gandhi Chowk. The markets are very near. Still the hotel is at very good quiet location having very good view of valley. Most of the rooms have private balconies where you can take your tea and breakfast in Sunlight.
The entrance of the hotel is about 25-30Ft down from the road and the approach road is very steep, so it's not recommended for aged or heart patients, otherwise it's a good value for money.
Management and stuffs are good but they need to be a little more professional. Most of the time, nobody was present in the reception, though they used to take the phone calls while calling from room. They didn't make any entry in the registrar for our stay.
There is no restaurant, food is served in room. Some extension work is in progress probably they'll make some restaurant in near future. Food served is mainly veg with only egg items as non-veg. But they can bring other non-veg items from outside hotel on request.
There is some other hotels at the Thandi sarak side from where you can view the snow-capped peerpanjal ranjes, so those hotels are definitely better but this hotel is no doubt good for comfortable stay at Dalhousie.

Room Tip: Approach the hotel from Gandhi Chowk side. One room in each floor have views of two sides of the va...

Me and my family went there in summer vacations. This hotel was near the bustand so we choosed to stay here. The location of the hotel was really heavenly. If we wont have stayed here we would have missed the beautiful scenery and the warm and cozy rooms with delicious and homely food

A budget hotel that provides value for money and good home like food.

The staff is hospitable and provides good service. We got a room that was close to staircase and there was movement all night for 2 nights as guests were checking in late night/early morning.

Location is a bit steep but overall a good place to stay.
