Khajjiar is a beautiful place to visit as it is one of the best unexplored locations in India.

Food was average and one can eat here...

Given the fact that Khajjiar is a small village with hardly any options to stay, this maybe a decent option if you want to stay close to the Khajjiar gardens which are hardly a kilometer away. I stayed with my hubby and two little kids and we struggled a lot here. The rooms were average, nothing great, stinky blankets and...

Location is good. Kailash mountaines can be seen. Food is costly and they are charging extra room services 20% for foods which is not expected. Room heater is also available on extra cost which is also not expected during winters.

An excellent start to a lovely two night stay! the two best things about this hotel were the staff who really showed us what himachali hospitality is all about, and the views of the mountains which are stunning! Rooms were really comfortable and well equipped to keep visitors from the plains warm at night and the buffet food was excellent.
