“The Grand Raj HOtel”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

We would not have stayed in Kangra had we not been planning to visit Yol (where my Italian husband's father was in a British prison camp from 1941 to '47). In the event it was a very pleasant stay. The view across to the snow-capped mountains was splendid and the hotel excellent for the price. Good food, good service, nice rooms with a heater (it was early February) - and free wireless connection. The temple in Kangra is well worth a visit and if you plan to go to Dharamsala and McLeod I suggest you drive there via Yol since the views onto the DhaulaDhar range are wonderful (whereas the views from McLeod are not so interesting)

After holidaying for four days in Dalhousie, we decided to explore Dharamshala and McLeodganj, but did not find a good place to stay, disappointed, we decided to go back to Chandigarh but on the way we decided to take a break. We were directed to this hotel The Grand Raj in Kangra. Given our experience in Dharamshala and McLeodganj, we tentatively stepped into the hotel. But it was a pleasant relief to find a room, neat and clean, spacious, and giving a view of the snow capped mountains from its balcony. The malfunctioning AC was repaired immediately, the service was prompt and staff was courteous. But the passageway was more of a junkyard and internet facility was not available. The quality of breakfast in the restaurant was pathetic. Neverthless, its far better than most of the accommodations in Dharamshala and McLeodganj.

We recently visited Kangra for my son's mundan ceremony (a hindu religious ceremony where your son's hair on the scalp are shaved off). We got off the train at Pathankot and headed for the uphill journey to reach Kangra.

The hotel is an awesome abode amidst chaotic and busy city-patch. The rooms overlook a valley and are very comfortable with all modern amenities. The added bonus is that the hotel is very close to the main temple.

Suggestion: Stay at the suites on the 3rd floor.
