Its in Dharamkot which is a few Kms above McLeod market. We found it a little difficult to find it since we reached at 4 a.m. The location is beautiful and right at the foothills. Its a little difficult to reach if your driving on your self, with narrow roads and steep climbs. A walk should be the best way,... More

I travelled the North India with my friend last February. I can say that, no matter which place you go, the best thing that you need to look for is the safety and accessibility of your accommodation. This inn, is the best answer! First, they have spacious room, not so fancy but offers comfortable stay. Second, the staff are very... More

We were a group of 10 with kids and looking for a hotel after reaching McLeodganj (Thanks to OYO for that) and found Dev Cottages. It's a huge property and the location is great. The views from rooms specially in morning are stunning. The garden area is nicely maintained and clean. The rooms are big & clean but old now.... More

Opted for Standard Deluxe Cottage but these were not cottages and was more like a lodging room. Average rating for the room ambience and amenities. You do have options for ordering food but food was average taste and costly too. Overall landscape of the cottage is good. Manager and room staff are friendly and kind.

We stayed at this hotel on our christmas trip to Dharamshala. It is away from the hustle bustle of the mall road and easily accessible via autos/cabs. The uphill drive could be a bit tedious but it is the worth the effort. The rooms are huge and well done up. You can ask for additional heaters for chilly nights and... More

Hotel Dev cottage is located few km away from the busy Mcleodganj area up north. It's access could be easily missed as there is no clear signage pointing towards the hotel. Hotel has very good unobstructed view of the mountain ranges and is very close to the base camp for Triund trek. Check-in process was very smooth and quick. We... More
