“Still with the time”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

One of the most famous five star properties of Chandigarh and still run by the Government Tourism Department, has probably a lot to do to renovate itself. Still the outr structure and rooms are good, bu t needs a makeover with modern facilities and a better restaurant required. Location is good enough, but not very close to the main shopping area Sector 17. Breakfast in the morning was not too great but would do for a quick business guy.

We stayed in this hotel when we went for a marriage in chandigarh. The hotel staff is very polite and courteous. The rooms were tidy and properly maintained. Hotel has an ample parking and its own spa facilities.

We went to Chandigarh for a day and selected this as the next best affordable hotel after the Taj. Well, the location is great,it has nice manicured gardens and average rooms. The service was really awful. You have to wait really long for any room service (took an hour for a morning tea, had to finally cancel it as we had to check out....and it was still charged to the bill.....). The bathroom really stinks, i think there must be some problem with drainage. They do not clear rooms after dinner. We requested the room service at least thrice after which we cleared the dinner trays ourself and kept it outside the room. I thought they must have had a busy day but when i checked in the morning...trays were still not cleared. Found similar dinner trays awaiting clearing outside neigbouring rooms. Reception is not particularly friendly, has matronly ladies manning it in the evening who were a bit surly. Not as bad in the morning though. The hotel seems to be Government run and reminds you a little of the services of Indian Airlines !!

My advice....if you have stayed at 4 star/5star accommodation before....stay away from this hotel !! But if this is your first, you may not feel as bad as we did.

This is one of the oldest hotels in Chandigarh. It is located in sector 10 chadigarh. It has a very nice green lawn and a nice pool site as well. And indeed we can see the shivalik mountains from there as the name suggest. It’s lobby and it’s rooms are large. It has capsule lifts and the staff is also good. It is a decent four star hotel. It is spacious and comfortable. It gives a feeling of openness.

  • Liked — It has large rooms and nice garden
  • Disliked — Doen't has a good spa which it should have if it has a pool

The lobby and entrance are impressive but don't be fooled this hotel is not good and it is expensive. We stupidly did not inspect the rooms before agreeing to stay. The first room was a smoking room that reeked of years of cigarettes and looked out over the car park, we moved but the second room was worse we couldn't identify the foul smell and asked to move again. We settled finally in the third room, it smelt was small and cramped for three people, we had to ask three times for the extra bed which when delivered was left in the hallway for us to rearrange the furniture and try to fit it in. The food in the main restaurant is truly hideous, we had lunch and thinking no one could possibly stuff up a grilled cheese sandwich we ordered, believe me this was revolting. Breakfast was disgusting. Service was not at all friendly or courteous. The bar on the roof top was ok. The only saving grace was the Chinese restaurant which we only went to out of extreme necessity but ended up being the best bit about it, other than watching the wedding on the back lawn at night (although the thump thump of the music would have ensured you had no sleep until the wee small hours unless you were as tired as we were).
