just 5 kms from dalhousie is this wonderful resort, great views, very good food(certainly better than most places we had food in ), good facilities, very helpful staff. a good holiday. though it is a bit out of the city, but then there is nothing in the city. so we did spend most of the time in the resort, played around, table tennis, badminton etc. we had a nice time in the evenings, in the balcony. the important thing is the cleanliness, and good professionalism on display

We stayed 3 nights 4 days in June 2012. The mud rooms are well done but shower does not have any water pressure. All are rooms not cottages. Roooms (aka Cottages in Aamod version) are porta cabin converted to cottages. They are hot in summer. Spa is under construction and massage facility is available in your room. Both messieurs are one of best for kerala based massages. Menu is diverse and food nice but expensive from Himachal standards. Its away from the market crowds towards Khajjiar/Kalatop and weather is better in June - main Dalhousie is hot. Generally, Dalhousie doesn't have good options and Aamod is your best bet. Don't take taxi from hotel as they will offer at highly inflated prices. All taxi requests are routed to one person only. Don't pay in advance.

Staff is all local hire without any professional training so as guest you will miss personal attention and lacks professional touch akin to hospitality industry. No flexibility around the system for check in or check out. Very rigid approach and does not accommodate to the needs of the customer nor do they customize the services/facilities to suit the preferences of the guests.

Try and book directly at resort as GGN office does not deliver what they promise. No coordination between them despite bookings made 30 days in advise.

The rooms are very well done. But they are rooms not cottages as they say. There is no Spa as they say, just massage facility in your room. Menu is diverse and food nice but quite expensive. Its away from the market crowds towards Khajjiar/Kalatop and nice and serene. But Dalhousie doesn't have too many other options and this still might be your best bet. Taxis are quite expensive for long drive in Dalhousie and since its a small hill station all taxi drivers seem to know each other and work together and thus bargaining doesn't work.

We stayed in Aamod, Dalhousie for 2nights. There was some work going on the hotel. So they upgraded us to a family room to make our stay more comfortable and keep us away from the noise. The hotel has an excellent view. The food was very good. And it was a pleasant surprise to find nice salads and continental food on the menu. The staff was ever ready to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Would definately recommend this hotel.

It was a wonderful experience for me and my family to spend three days and two nights in Aamod, Dalhousie. We stayed there from 17-Apr-12 to 19-Apr-12. I got the reference of Aamod from Trip Advisor. I booked a family cottage with two adjacent rooms with connection in between. The advance booking was done through their office in Gurgaon. The response of the Gurgaon Office was very good. The resort is located on the Dalhousie – Khajjiar Road – about 6 km from center of the Dalhousie town. Aamod at Dalhousie enjoys unparallel scenic beauty. The rooms are large, well decorated and maintained. The food Quality is extremely good. The hotel staff are very much co-operative. The resort offers fantastic views of the snow clad Pir Panjal range and Kala Top Wild Life Sanctuary. If somebody wants to enjoy the nature, this is the place one should book while visiting Dalhousie.

Room Tip: One can choose any cottage. All are well located.

Aamod is an Eco Tourism hotel located ahead of Dalhousie, Himachal on the way towards Khajjiar. Property is very well maintained & neat and clean. Staff is really co-operative. Food is good. If someone really wants to enjoy the Nature & its beauty in peace then Aamod is highly recomended.

Room Tip: Valley Facing rooms will be great.
