A HPTDC property is sadly not maintained properly. Parwanoo is not a vacation spot if your touring Himachal and should be used as a stop over. I chose a suit which was spacious but not properly maintained. Carpets were torned. The Room Heater stopped after an hour due to some short circuit. The food served is tasty and good.

The Hotel is not just Shabby or improperly maintained, it does not even seem to be a safe place to stay, in view of the reckless visitors there. The kind of visitors who come to this hotel are mostly drunkards and thus it is simply not safe to stay here. One of the attendants of the hotel, Mr. Atul Sood, is a cunning person. He is simply concerned to make the sales there, and so be very cautious from this person. It is not at all expected for a HP tourism hotel to be like this. Just avoid, and if need be stay at a retiring room at the Kalka Railway station which is just 4 km away from this hotel.

I would say this HPTDC property as one of the worst manages (being stayed in other HPTDC properties), maybe due to the fact that parwanoo is not a much visited tourist destination.

I stayed there once with my family as night halt while driving down from Shimla to Noida. But the experience was not so great. It was more or less like a govt run property and the rooms were also not well maintained. The restaurant service was also very slow and sometimes we need to wait for quite some time aftre placing order.

I would suggest to plan for stay only as last resort (or when you have budget contraints) since quite cheaper then other hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Prefer this hotel only in case you have to take night halt only due to some reasons. Not so good hotel for your vacations stay.

Stayed in the Suite room for a night while going up the hill. The hotel is placed right on the highway just after the Himachal entry barrier & so is a very convinient & reasonable place to break your journey while going further up the hills. The hotel is visible from the highway itself & to enter inside is a little bit of a problem as the hotel is on the right side of the road & so you have to cross the downside traffic which is chok a block most of the time.
The Suite was nice & warm & was carpetted that too looked clean. It had 2 section, one containing the sofas & the TV & the other containing the bed, the dressing table & the wardrobe. Must say that the room was quite spacious & well maintained for its price. The bed sheets & the blankets were also neat & clean & the towel was crisp white. The bathroom was also spacious & functional & the bathing space was in the form of an enclosure that was really nice.
Since we had reached there quite late in the night we made use of the room service to order our dinner. The room service guy was very warm & friendly & the food served was also very delicious. The chicken curry, the paneer pasanda & the naan were very edible though I would have liked the roti to be a little better. Had a satisfying meal nevertheless.
Cons:
1) The hotel is truly a highway hotel & so you would be having a little bit of difficulty in sleeping on account of the traffic on the road which is very audible in the room.
2) The hotel has lost a lot of its locational advantage on account of the newly opened Pinjore - Parwanoo bypass as it totally bypasses this property & goes right up to the timber trail & so people may not prefer it now for a night halt as it would mean crossing the whole of Parwanoo mess to reach the hotel & thereby negating the advantage of the bypass totally.

Room Tip: The upper end rooms are better.

We booked this place through Make My Trip. My first advise. Avoid booking this hotel through Make My Trip at any cost. Make My Trip charges a premium and the hotel owners give you the lousiest room to make their ends meet. The room we were given was horrible and depressing. The bed linens were soiled and shady and reminds you of hotels that rent rooms by the hour.
The floor times were cracked and outright dirty and disgusting.

I had to pay extra to upgrade to a room that had solied carpets and dusty furniture.

The only good thing about this hotel is that it is the closest to Kalka station in case you are planning to catch the Toy Train to Shimla. The food is also pretty decent.
