Old bad-smelling dirty rooms, no wi-fi, no balcony. The shower doesn't work well. Too expensive for this conditions. If you want exactly this location just check hotels in front of this one - most of them has balcony with a great view to the valley, they are cheaper and cleaner.

The tents are new addition to the Bhagsu hotel. When I booked the tent, I was a little apprehensive. But this property was superb. I was simply amazed by the interior of the tent which also had an attached bathroom with hot and cold water supply. The flooring of the tent was just like room, with tiles. It had a double bed, cupboard, two sofa chairs, centre table and side tables. There was everything except TV. The hotel location is amazing, the terrace, garden, sitting arrangements outside the tents were too good. I must mention about the service and food. I think this is one of the best hotels of HPTDC.

Room Tip: Tents are really good.

Location - better than other hotels due to hptdc. Very close to the main market!!

Room - very dull with old carpets!! Gives a very sad feeling. It needs renovation!

Food - was good. Ordered Indian and Chinese and that was decent!

Service - was good too. Quite prompt!

Overall - if the rooms are improved, it will be a good place to stay!!

We were a group of 8 people (4 adults and 4 children) and we stayed for 2 nights in Bhagsu. With my previous experience of KMVN Tourist Rest House stays I was a little apprehensive about this property also. However, all my apprehensions were blown once I saw the 2 rooms which were offered to us. The rooms were amazing VFM (value for money). The hotel location is amazing, the terrace, garden, food and service were better than many other hotels I have stayed in the past. My room was carpeted, had an LCD, a sofa, a comfortable bed and a very clean toilet (best part). The other room which was brother got was not carpeted but it was bigger and had a lot of sit-out place. The rooms are next to a terrace where you can sit and relax in evening. The hotel has a huge parking and the restaurant was also very good. We had breakfast and dinner there and the food was very good and of reasonable cost. The best part of this stay is the per day rent of one room (2600 + 17% tax). We had booked 2-Double bed room super deluxe rooms. The rooms offered were 214 and 216. The hotel is huge and safe with children having lot of place to run around and play. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: I had booked double bed room super deluxe rooms.

I recently traveled to Mcleodganj with my family. Over the period of time I have realized that if you really wish to get value out of money, stay in hotels and rest houses of HPTDC, KMVN or govt. owned hotels. They have great location with excellent view & open spaces.

Hotel Bhagsu offers all this at very economical & affordable price. On the one side of the hotel you get an excellent view of the Kangra Valley and on the other side beautiful and breathtaking view of the mighty Dhauladhar mountain with its snow capped peaks. The rooms are big and comfortable. Staff and front desk are very helpful and courteous. If you are travelling in your own vehicle, there is enough parking space which other nearby hotels unfortunately don't have.

Another feature that marked the attention was freshly cooked home food and I mean really freshly cooked. In the lap of nature among cool breeze and huge pine trees, you can enjoy your breakfast and evening tea & dinner in the lush green open space that the hotel boosts of.

Happy Holidaying.

Based on the reviews here we booked a room for a night. But it was not all that great. This is a below average hotel. The good part is the location and the bad part was we did not even have hot water for bathing. The geyser was in the room but still no hot water. The carpet was really dirty. Still don't know how this hotel got good reviews. Maybe they had good rooms only for Himachal govt folks. I was in room 206. Avoid this hotel if possible. Check the room before checking in.

Room Tip: please check your rooms first and avoid room no 206

I was there for Just a day in a DBR Deluxe room.(may 2013)
The good-
Spacious room with a large :-) Bathroom.
1 to 2 minutes from the main market or center of upper mcleod gunj.
Good food quality.
Excellent room service.
Ample Car parking
The bad-
Away from Bhagsunag Temple.
We got a corner room at first floor with absolutely no view except a old rusty transformer.
I don't know but I felt a little bit overpriced hotel.

Room Tip: Don't get in the corner rooms.
