“Not worth it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

Rooms that we got for agianst price paid was not justified, Rooms are small, TV remote didnt work, Facility manager was not co-operative and he was not avialable when needed. Typical Govt. style working.

Only good thing was that staff was hard working tried their best to keep visitors happy.

Room Tip: They had mutiple room catogory, when Kashmir Suit is of Tariff INR 2000/- and DBR rooms are INR 170...

We had reached Dharamsala Himachal without any hotel reservation and that was the time we understood its very important to have all the bookings in advance.However in our case, our program was flexible , as first we went to Dalhousie and we were not sure how many days Dalhousie can hold us with its beauty. We had not found their rooms nice enough to stay but luckily they told us about their presidential suite which they launched that day only and we were their first guest in that new suite. First word came out was "Wow" by looking the size of the suite. But we didn't felt comfortable as it was smelly and moist. Also linens were not clean. But one thing was good - food and their service was really satisfying. Hospitality was impressive.

After an ill-advised stop at Dharamshala, we were able to get our booking transferred to McLeodganj (this is the best thing about staying in Himachal Tourism hotels). The Club House is located bang in the middle of the market and close to all the places of interest in McLeodganj. The rooms were clean and the staff extremely helpful. They had a billiards and TT room though was clear that it had not been used or cleaned in ages. If you are looking for a relaxing time and quick access to the hub of McLeodganj this is the place to go to.

As I've mentioned in other reviews those expecting to find quality, international standards room in Mcleodganj are going to be disappointed. In off season in nearby Bhaksunag rooms (with shared baths) can be had for less then US $2.

The Club House, run by the state tourism commission, bills itself as a "deluxe hotel." Travelers need to be warned what they are getting for their money here (which run $15-$20/night).

The rooms have tattered and stained carpets. On request you can get a tiny heater that will take a day or so to warm up the room if you're here when it's colder outside. The bathroom are rudimentary with an in-room water heater. Make sure the water heater stays switched on otherwise you'll be waiting an hour to get enough temperate water to take a shower. There's no shower curtain as is the case with rural "deluxe" hotels in India. Feel free to ask for additional soap, towels and toilet paper.

On the upside there's is cable TV in the rooms and some recreation -- billiards table and ping-pong. The food in the restaurant (which was freezing -- no heat) was OK. They will launder clothes on request.

This is on a quieter road so barking dogs will not keep guests up all night.

The staff were friendly with the exception of the front desk which tried to get us to move to a cheaper room on our last night even though we had told them how many days we would be staying. They said another guest had booked the room over the internet.

Like most places in Dharamsala there is no internet but cheap cyber cafes with good speed and cheap prices are abundant.

  • Liked — Quiet
  • Disliked — Tattered carpeting, lack of adequate heat and smell in room
