“A wonderful week in March”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

It felt like staying with a family! The hotel owners were so accomodating. We booked a garden deluxe room, but on arrival found we had been upgraded to a luxury room. I was disappointed, but the owner explained that the garden rooms were being refurnished and assured us would be ready the next day. In addition it was quite cold and and the owner thought we might be more comfortable in a modern centrally heated room. That was fine but the next day we moved and the garden delux room was just lovely. In compensation each night we were given a special dish in addition to the dinner buffet. One night it was bread and butter pudding - bliss! At the weekend there was a big party and the owner suggested we might like to travel to Chamba for that night and made arrangements for us to stay at a hotel there. I am so glad we went as Chamba was fantastic quite different to Dalhousie,steeped in history. It was arranged such that we only paid the cost of the taxi. Quite remarkable. I would stay at the Grand view hotel again and will be recommending it to all my friends. The views are breathtaking and all the staff so friendly and cater for all your needs.
There is Wi Fi access which was great but we had hoped to buy a local sim card for our mobile which we found can only be bought by Indian Nationals.
The dinner buffet was perfect, lots of choice and different dishes every night, some prepared on the spot.
The weather was great, T shirt during the day (we were there 13 - 21 March) but cold at night, plenty of beautiful shawls to buy at the local market. The Rhododendrons were in bloom and the rose bushes getting new leaves. It will be wonderful in a couple more weeks as all the flowers come into bloom.
We weren't hassled at all, the people in town were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Awful to come home to the UK to blizzards but very happy memories.
Thank you Grand View Hotel

We stayed in royal suite for our honeymoon. It is a nice property but the suite we were staying in was below the terrace and there was some noise everyday above us. The monkeys would climb up the trees to the balcony. Once I forgot to lock the door and the monkeys are smart and they were able to open the door by the handle. My wife got really scared and I had to kick them out, Nice view and nice place to stay, just be careful with the monkeys.

Room Tip: Go for luxury room if you do not want a suite.

Ashish and Radhika are very warm owners of this hotel who personally takes care of their guests...staffs are over attentive who gets things ASAP when asked...view from the room is grand....though breakfast timing was 8.15 but we had to leave at 8 and they prepared everything by 7.15....would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for warmth and service....

Room Tip: We had luxury rooms which were facing the grand view of mountains

“What would you do for four days in Dalhousie?” This was the question by few of my friends when I premeditated my expedition. I had doubts too, but it was planned. So no take back was allowed for me, my wife and 2 year old daughter. But thankfully, Hotel Grand View made all postulations wrong. I’ve traveled across almost all major hill stations of India, but such a nicely managed hotel is rarely seen. I would call it best Indian Hotel, I’ve ever come through. Services are above par. Food is mouthwatering and truly Indian in nature. Staff is super courteous. Location is best in Dalhousie. Ambiance is very natural. Personalised services are incomparable. Rooms are the real icing on the cake. Try to make wifi available across all places, rest is fantabulous.

I wish if I could come here back and spend more time in leisure with nature.

Room Tip: Choose the new rooms.

We were celebrating the first year of our marriage. However, we chose to book the honeymooners package. Everything mentioned on the website package was followed and served. The entire staff took very good care of us, special mention about Rakesh who looked after us very well. We would recommend this hotel specially for the service.

Room Tip: book rooms in the new tower.
