Pros:
1. Nice and big rooms
2. Decent staff

Cons:
1. Far way from Mcleodganj. It is a 4 km very steep walk upto Mcleodganj. You need to be in very good shape to be able to do it on foot. The taxi rate is Rs 180 one way
2. The room rent would have been reasonable for any other town but for Dharamshala/Mcleodganj, it is on the expensive side.
3. Not much of a view from the hotel. Hotels in Mcleodganj and Dharamkot are much better in this aspect.

Stay experience was like staying in a heritage hotel.
Room service was better than expectation.
Infact, being a government owned hotel, the service provided & the staff attitude, was at par, or rather, better than the private hotels.

I had made full payment for the room rent when I booked this room online.
But when I visited the hotel, I came to learn that there is a 30% discount in the room rent.
Hotel manager (having got no personal benefit out of this) helped me in settling the amount against the food bill.

I had also stayed in Manali & Shimla during my trip, but food @ the Kashmir House was best of my trip and memorable.

After meeting the staff of The Kashmir house, my trust in bureaucracy has restored.
Now I can say that I have met government servants that work honestly without the need of bribe...

Really remarkable...

Room Tip: spacious, big

The Kashmir House is a grand old heritage building located in a quiet cul de sac just off the very steep road going to McLeod Ganj.

The ceiling of our room was higher than that of two average Mumbai flats! Not surprisingly the rooms are large, and a pleasant feature was the retention of the original, now antique furniture.

Service was efficient, warm and courteous as in all the HPTDC hotels we have stayed at except for The Manimahesh. We ordered room service, once standard north Indian and once Chinese. Both meals were tasty and served piping hot.

The property has a nice lawn, adequate parking and facilities for drivers. Dharamsala's Kotwali Bazaar is a short walk downhill. It is a good place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle and just a short drive away from McLeod Ganj.

This hotel stay - a play ground on hill, natural beauty. You can enjoy the view of Dharmashala city from this high altitude hotel. While going to and coming back the road journey also one can enjoy if you are travelling in a car.
