“Nice but Over Priced !!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed in 1st week of Oct'13. Hotel location is good, which is 300 mt. from the Temple & main Market but it is difficult to reach market at night as there are no street lights, which makes it a little scary...also the walk till temple from the hotel is very steep.

The food is really good. The view from the roof top restaurant is also nice.

Overall it is a good property but a little overpriced.

Room Tip: Always prefer rooms facing lift.

I went to this hotel last month with my husband for our 1st marriage anniversary, thinking that this location and this hotel will add up into our memories for life time but unfortunately Bella Heights did not meet my expectations making our experience an average experience with this hotel.

But this hotel has an dvantage that is it has a lift, one of the rare combinations in Mcgloedganj. It is near to Dalai Lama temple and Jogiwara road - 2 main destinations in Mcgloedganj.

The staff is good in Hospitality and Service. They will go to a great extent to make sure your stay is comfortable. The view from the terrace cafe overlooking Mountains is very good. Cleanliness is a BIG BIG issue as the two chairs in the balcony of our room had dust, the coffee/tea maker was dirty an extent that one could easily make out that its not been washed/ cleaned since a long, similar was the situation with the water jug / flask as well. the pillows and quilt given to us were with stains of tea and other things and we had to get them changed thrice.

Food is awesome and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Overall it was an average experience and the hotel is overpriced as per the condition of the rooms and cleanliness.

Room Tip: there is not much difference between the three different categories so need not to spend more on the...

I had recently visited bella heights with my friends . Had heard a lot about this place from friends about its roof top cafe and food. So it was decided that if its Mcleodganj I am gonna stay in bella heights. Well trust me the place did not disappoint the staff was warm and welcoming and the service was quick . Its 2 mins walk from dalai lama temple and the main mall road. Though food takes time but it was really yum. The best part is it has lift so you can enjoy the best view from room on top floor without thinkin about climbing stairs and the ambience is really classy and its total value for money

We went to this hotel 3 days back and our experience was mostly average owing to location. We took the Mountain facing Premium room.

The advantage of the hotel is that it has a lift, one of the rare combinations in Mcgloedganj. It is near to Dalai Lama temple and Jogiwara road - 2 main destinations in Mcgloedganj , but the climb towards temple and road is extremely steep. This makes it a disadvantage to stay in this hotel as everytime to come to the hotel, the climb as well as descent is very steep.

If you get late in the night, it gets pretty dark and there are no lights, so it is little scary to walk down from Jogiwara road to the hotel.

The hotel is good with Hospitality and Service. They will go to a great extent to make sure your stay is comfortable. The view from the terrace cafe overlooking Mountains is very good and you can spend a lot of time there chilling out.

Cleanliness is a issue as the Blankets given to us were with blood stains and we had to ask them to change it.

They also provide cabs/taxi, check the rates before you take the package.

The food is average, you can get better taste on many hotels in Jogiwara road. You can try Paneer 65, it is spicy and delicious. The staff can customise some foods to your taste if you specify.

Overall, a little overpriced hotel owing to the location.

It is a newly build hotel in Mcleodganj. It is one of the best hotel stay in as it has all modern amenities with a beautiful view of valley from most of the rooms. Food is really good and tastes more tasty in its terrace Restaurant with open air eating in rains also as it is covered.
The most favourite part of our stay was having breakfast with coffee in open air terrace. Staff is friendly they serve and help you with a smile and as quickly as possible. It is just 1km walk from main market and dalai lama temple which was convenient for us to roam around freely.
Overall the Bella heights is the best option to stay in Mcleodganj.

I decided to stay at this hotel because of its location. Mall road and Dalai Lama Temple are walking distance away from this place. Not only this hotel is a convenient place to stay but their restaurant serves the most amazing food in Mcleod Ganj. The roof top cafe with awesome food and beautiful scenery makes this the place to be. The staff is friendly and polite. Clean rooms also add to the value of this hotel. I will be staying here again during my next visit to McLeod Ganj , and won't forget to order their cheese omelette for breakfast and shahi paneer for main course :)

Well I had recently been to Mcleodganj and stayed in Bella heights and I am glad to share that the hotel is simply AWESOME which includes awesome food, rooms, service, roof top cafe and staff :) The interiors or rather the exteriors of this roof top cafe were simply beyond amazing...We can actually sit there, and chit-chat and relax with yumilicious food, drinks, soothing music being played, a cup of hot coffee and an awe-beautiful-some view of snow covered mountains enjoying the weather of mcleodganj...the rooms are very nice with an attached balcony to experience the chilled air and breeze at night specially...staff is really sweet...I would definitely recommend Bella Heights for a fun filled stay with your loved ones and for an overall memorable trip!!
