Expensive, but worth it for a short stay. It is some distance away from Lower Dharmsala. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Restaurant is OK .Not crowded as the hotel is small. No TV in the room. Good for enjoying the peace and quiet with Tibetan ambience.Staff are nice and credit cards are accepted

The room is in Tibetan style but very comfortable and pretty! Staff was helpful and kind! The guesthouse is just right in Norbalinka Institute. I feel I living in the park. Good place to stay while you are in Dhramshala!

Stayed with the family. Unique place to experience with Tibetan themed rooms and not just a typical stay. The Temple and Japanese gardens with the Dhauladhar mountains in the backdrop were something to feel. However, a pack of dogs hanging around there could be bothersome. Also had a chance to view the life of the Dalai Lama through the pictures...

Everything was excellent. The room, service, ambience, cleaniness, etc all perfect. We enjoyed our stay. However the food left a lot to be desired. In breakfast & dinner most items were not available.

We had a very nice time in Norling House. The rooms are furnished with art work, which is realized in Norbalinka Institute, and are comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The gardens are pleasant. Also the visit of the art workshops is amazing.

I would love to go to this place again. There is so much to do there. The wilderness is breath taking. You can learn different arts like Tibetan painting, wood carving and the traditional paintings. The rooms are based on different themes like dragon, fish and others. The ginger lemon tea is too good .A memorable stay!! Don't miss to...

My 2 months stay was a very positive experience; the staff are friendly, helpful, kind and patient :)) I was treated with respect and my needs were met whenever I asked for anything special. Room service is discreet, water is always available and heater too if you go in the cold season. A+
