“unexpectedly nice”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

This is the first time we stayed in a govt property which was not at all bad infact it is turned out to be a very good property.We stayed for 3 nights in a super dlx room which was very spacious with a sofa ,LCD tv & a heater in a very good condition.Washrooms were also spacious& neat with warm & cold water supply.Linens inside were also clean & in acceptable condition.Hotel was surrounded with green lawns & a totally peaceful ambience with a good parking space.Food whatever we ordered was fresh & tasty with less oil.Market was just a few steps away which was definitely the best thing.Rooms have big windows but without balcony.Overall a very good experience which was totally unexpected.

Room Tip: Go for a super dlx if going with kids.

Hotel Bhagsu has the perfect location in Mcleodganj as compared to most hotels. The hotel is walking distance from the market, it has a beautiful garden facing the snow capped mountains. With the morning sun out, it was just the perfect experience that I wanted my parents to have. The food served was hot and tasty and the hotel staff was friendly. One needs to book this hotel in advance as it is perpetually booked completely. I had a great time with my family at Mcleodganj in April 2013

Room Tip: Try taking the rooms on the ground floor facing the garden.Book in advance, it is very difficult to...

It's excellent location of calm around it and market just 1 min away from the hotel. The back of the hotel is all mountain area. The quality of food was good and it was good stay overall. This is nice hotel where one can pleasantly stay with market right in front. There is a small garden they have around property.

Stayed there with my wife and daughter. i booked bhagsu suit on the first floor. Very big room with 8 seater sofa and a dinning table. Bathroom was also very big and clean and also the change room is very spacious. Location is on the mall road and ample parking space in the hotel. Food was above average. Overall great experience.

Room Tip: Go for Bhagsu Suit. Other rooms are small and not so clean.

Great location, decent food, good garden, ample parking, no frills and fair charges are common to all HPTDC hotels. Interior of rooms look uninspiring, but was clean and OK. Bathroom was clean, and the towels and linen were acceptable. No balcony but common areas are good. The garden and the terrace in first floor were too good and you can also have food there. Dining area was huge and we waited there till we got the room (we reached there very early). Food is good and is reasonably priced; (but a few dishes were not available). We noticed an yellow flower that blossomed at night and fallen off on day. My son was thrilled. Overall great value for family visit. Staff are always helpful and service is reasonable for a Government property. In fact HPTDC staff and hotels are much better than many others like that of KVMN and Rajasthan.
All HPTDC hotels offer a discount for senior citizens provided you have valid proof. They collect taxes at the hotel even if you had booked through the net. I think it can only be booked through the HPTDC website and not through other travel portals. There seems to be a similar named hotel which is not a HPTDC property.
One warning: Check the bills before you pay. we realized after leaving that a beer/chicken were included in our bills even though the whole family is non-drinkers and veggies.

Good location and ample parking area are the major advantages of this hotel. The room was okay. We did not have food at the in-house restaurant. One can walk to the Buddhist temple from the hotel.

One has to drive through the congested, narrow, busy road to reach this hotel. That's the only negative aspect, I can think of.

We stayed in Super Deluxe Room.

Pros:
- Large parking
- Big garden / walking area
- Awesome location.
- Great view from room.

Cons:
- Food was 2/5. Most things were not available. Even Tandoor was not operational.
- Service was average at best.
- Rooms were not as big as expected.
- Bathtub in bathroom was not operational. That killed my mood.

Room Tip: Don't bother to take any other room than Super Deluxe if you want some space inside the room.
