The hotel is about 22 kms from Dehradun ISBT and it is better if you have your own conveyance, as taxis and autos (here 'Vikrams') overcharge you! The hotel is very good with neat and clean rooms.

Competent Palace is very well competent compared to its peers.. Good business class hotel in Selaqui.. Rooms are well maintained.. Amenities are ok.. Washroom size is small.. Room service and restaurant is good although a bit expensive.. Food is good.. Only glitch is that the swimming pool is not functional
