Its one of the best vacations so far. We stayed at 8auspicious last week for 6nights and it was as wonderful experience. We booked our stay via their website.The rooms are exactly as in the pictures in the web gallery. They confirmed with us if we needed pick up from PTK andf were very professional with email exchange. Our stay included breakfast too. Its about a km walk from main square to the hotel and new comers may be daunted by slopes on roads. But then all of mcleodganj is like that and this in no way hampers your stay at 8 auspicious. We chose the blue umbrella room which is facing the mountains. It was well equipped with hot water boiler, a heaster, duvets n extra cushions , arm chairs ad well as comfortable seating in the gallery. It also has TV in case if you want to watch! The staff is ever smiling and suipwr courteous. Although they don't mention room service they served us lunch and dinner in our rooms especially after the triund trek.the early morning breakfast and the ginger lemon honey tea was delicious. So were the pastry/ fresh baked cakes they have. For lunch and dinner they have some amazing home made pasta. And the home made jam to die for! The view from the room is super. We loved the decor of the hotel and aesthetics balanced so well with comfort. Do's and don'ts are clearly mentioned in the rooms with a no alcohol policy. Most popular places are easily accessible on jogiwara road , everything is a short walk away. They have some nice reading available too with a small library. It was a complete hassle free stay and a complete delight of a trip. The aura of the hotel does make this trip very special. 2 thumbs up for 8 auspicious him view, we'll see you soon!
