“GRAND VIEW EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

My family visited the Grand View Hotel @ Dalhousie during April 2014, It was one of the most scenic view from the newly added luxury rooms at the hotel, totalling now to 52 rooms
I was amazed to understand from the owners Mrs Ashok Chadda, her son Mr Ashish Chadda and daughter in law Mrs Radhika Chadda, that the hotel was almost 100 years old and built during the British Era, the ambience is stunning, the jaroka,s outside the colonial rooms on the ground level are fantastic chat place in the mornings/evenings overlooking the snow clad mountains. Service is excellent and Food quality as well as the spread is mouth watering and tantalises your taste buds, Evening games, bonfire are always full of excitement, Both Ashish and Radhika carry engineering degrees and discipline which reflects in the professionally yet homely managed hotel, Each and every staff is well trained to take care of our vacation and leaves behind an everlasting memory
KEEP IT UP MS RADHIKA CHADDA

The location and ambiance was excellent. It was one of the memorable stay of our trip. One should not miss the dinner at their dinning hall....karoke music was arranged for all the music lovers.
We spend only one night and regret for such a short stay. Will visit again...

Room Tip: preferably a Garden View...deluxe room

Grand view hotel is situated right at the entry and center point (Dalhousie Bus stand), fairly decent parking space keeping in mind the hilly terrain. Do opt for the new wing luxury rooms, the view is just too good. The service standards are good, rooms are spacious and food quality is great. The owners themselves are quite involved and are always there to assist with anything you need. The arrangement of Bonfire and games had one of the maximum attendance I have ever experienced. This talks volume about its quality and involvement. The rooms, reception and Kitchen are quite spread out but there was a very prompt service and you had someone attend you at the drop of a hat. One thing they can surely improve is fitness and SPA facilities and I must say they have captured this improvement area before I could notice and this is already in the process, should be in place for near future travelers.
Ashish and Radhika Chadha need a special mention as owners of this property and they have set some very high standards of hospitality, Good stuff !!

Room Tip: Luxury Room - New wing (upper floors have a much better view)

After much discussion and research on sites like tripadvisor, we decided to go for Hotel Grand view during our stay in Dalhousie. Reviews on Tripadvisor seemed to good to be true. We were skeptical after making reservations, as tariff appeared to be a bit on the higher side. We took a 3 night 4 day package for two couples and booked a luxury room. As soon as we reached there, we were simply mesmerized by the hospitality and words suddenly fell short of describing the utter pleasure that we felt upon beholding the 180 degree Grand view of the mountain range, right from our bed. Food in the old Victorian dining area was sumptuous and kudos to the way they handle there Guests. Live singing sessions during the Dinner was something to be cherished for a long time. Children's play area was too good. They have a small library as well. The owner, Ms. Radhika, what a wonderfull and hospitable lady she is, knows how treat her Guests. She organizes games and bonfire Dj sessions after every couple of days, this is something we never experienced anywhere. It's a wonderful family place to stay and the mesmerizing charm of the place will sure to make you come closer with your loved ones.

A special mention to a wonderful gesture from the wonderful owners of the hotel. We made our reservations in April 2013, however due to some family emergency we had to cancel our trip. Halfheartedly, I called the hotel and asked if we can come later (considering that I already paid the advance amount). I was sure that i was about to hear a "No" and the amount that I deposited, won't get refunded. However, to my utter astonishment, they said "Yes, you can come later, we will keep the advance amount deposited with us." They sent me a mail and told me to reply on that mail whenever we plan to come. After a year when we planned to go to Dalhousie, i was still skeptical. I replied on the same mail with the dates on which I planned to visit Dalhousie and "Voila" we had our reservations made. I was completely won over by there hospitality, big 5 star hotels has something to learn from them. Hats off!!!

Grand View, we will definitely be back. Just because of you people, we will visit Dalhousie again. Keep up the Good work...!!!

We stayed at the Grand hotel in April 2014, just for a day but that was enough to show us, what a great place and what awesome hospitality. We even had to cancel 1 of the 2 rooms we had booked, a few days before the travel date as the couple travelling with us could not do so due to a sad demise in their family. The owners, Radhika and Ashish Chadda were so considerate and refunded the amount immediately.
When we reached the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised as we had also been upgraded to a big suite! My daughter especially loved the room and hotel as she had enough space to play around.
The food, selection and quality, the room, the view, the hospitality of the staff, everything was just fabulous. Great place and we will surely visit again with the entire family!
