Stayed in 1st week of March, 2015. Originally booked cottage but shifted to normal room due to frozen water pipeline during snowfall. The cottage is totally secluded from the hotel and is on the other corner of the meadow. We really missed the opportunity of living in such a cottage. Room was good with normal bathroom. The difference in price... More

This hotel has the best view and placement in the valley..must check in in the cottages below the road and not in the main building...the staff is very courteous and makes it sure that you are comfortable...to see the view and the place it is,i ignored the shabby condition of the hotel.

HPTDC run hotel occupies the best location in Khajjiar. You have the green meadows before you and distant thick pine (Devdar) forests. This place is called Mini Switzerland because of its resemblance. The Hotel manager Mr. Vikas Datta was very helpful and made every effort to make us feel welcome in HP. A rare gesture in government run hotel. He... More

The location of the Hotel is wonderful. It overlooks the valley. The view from the Hotel is mesmerizing. However the condition of the Hotel is poor and it needs renovation urgently. The whole place is falling apart. The only saving grace is the courteous staff and the positive & uplifting spirit of the Manager Mr. Dutta. Must complement him for... More

Staff is very courteous and helpful. Khajji Cottage is the best. Food is good. Limited options. Free Wi-Fi is available. Location is excellent, in front on meadows. Rooms are good, do not expect great things from hotel at this location.

We booked this place directly on HPTDC website and opted for Cottage stay on reading the reviews here. Cottage consists of a large room and bathroom, and a verandah. It does not have very luxurious facilities but the early morning view is just awesome! Furnishings and upholstery badly needs replacement. HP Government is charging a very high price for an... More

At first it seemed that the rooms are old. But then the "old" turned into "homely". Hotels HPTDC all are about "coziness". The Devdar's hotel staff provided heaters, clean bathrooms and clean linen. They brought us firewood and we were able to make a fire. The place itself is magical, on this lake is worth living. We were a group... More
