If you want spend your holidays away from hustle bustle, then Renukaji is the place for you. It is a beautiful place just basking in the sun sitting by the side of lake. You may go for walks around the lake as the periphery of lake is 5KM surrounded by zoo(animals are very few). Fish feeding & boating is the best time. But you won\\\'t get anythin to eat except for only hotel & restaurant run by HPTDC. So the place is not for who go for holidays for eating , lots of crowd watching etc.

Very nice location next to a peaceful lake, though a bit out of the way.
Hotel is a bit pricey (1600 rupees/night) for what you get but the room are spacious, clean and simply furnished. They have hot water and AC (but the AC was so noisy it wasn’t possible to keep it on during the night).
Service was good but slow and the English was very limited.
Food was good, which is fortunate since there is no other options nearby.

This is the only decent hotel if you want to stay at Renuka Ji. The location is awesome and the view of lake in the early morning is stunning. The ammenities provided are very basic. Rooms are big as it is build like British Era buildings. If looking for 'luxury' then this is surely not the place you want to be at. But considering the room charges and the remote location, this worth it. Food is also good and room service is quick if you shell out reasonable tip. Overall, very basic hotel but nice place to stay at this remote location.

Probably I am rating the hotel slightly higher ... but simply cannot ignore the location and value for money.
Do not expect great level of services OR luxurious stay but if visiting for simple, green, peaceful weekend/holidays this is the place for you and your family.
The rooms are spacious, with basic amenities. The hotel location is next to lake, temple and mini zoo, with lot of open area to walk and play (if traveling with kids).
Staff is courteous and friendly but limited due to which services are slow.

Suggestions if planning to stay here
1) Have patience when ordering for food, it takes atleast 30 mins for hotel folks to prepare but it would be simple, fresh and tasty.
2) Preferably carry your own towels and even bedsheet (if very particular)
3) Carry a torch, not enough street light in the night. Cell Phone torch also worked fine..do carry chargers.

We discovered Renuka by accident and took the riak of going to a place with no other hotels other than the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Hotel Renuka. I must say the trip was a nice experience. We had booked the only suite at the Hotel through an online booking. The Hotel is situated right at the lake and the rooms offer a great view of the lake. The staff of the hotel are sparse, but friendly. The room was clean and warm. The food had to be ordered about 30 minutes in advance, but was served warm and nice.The zoo gate is also adjacent to the hotel and one can lazily walk around the lake and the zoo (only has a handful of animals) the whole day. There are boating services in the lake and one can go for a lazy round of the lake in a pedal boat for 300Rs. The hotel offers good parking and since I visited in winter, they even offered us a 400Rs discount!
If you are looking for a getaway from Delhi, this is it. Kids may find the place a bit boring as there are no 'city like' outlets for fun. But I think that is a USP of this place!

We booked this hotel for a weekend getaway to a calm place. The place is good, picturesque and away from hustle bustle of the crowd. The hotel is good, exactly in the front of the lake which is full of fish and turtles. Boating in the lake is enjoyable to all and exciting to children as the lake is quite long and deep and surrounded by deep forest. A small zoo is also there having lions, leopard, bear and few other animals. Service of the hotel is good and quality of food etc is average. But the price of room and services is also not high. It suits to the budget of all. Overall it is a pleasant stay.
