Reviewed December 9, 2013

First thing, This hotel is bit away from regular approach roads, but the hotel itself and surroundings are too good to bother about location. When we arrived, we were surpsrised to see such a nice property and so welcoming staff,even though it was far from Mcleod or Dharmashal main market street.
The hotel rooms have nice balcony sit outs to enjoy evenings/Morning leisurly. Food and rooms ervcie was very very good and friendly.

Decent hotel with a nice view on the mountains and the valley.
Pros: large room, decent bathroom, good service, good Indian food served at the restaurant. Not very crowded as it is out of town.

Cons: it's out of town, especially if your main target is McLeod Ganj, it can get expensive to take a taxi for the market or the upper town all the time.

We were a group of two family. We had a good holiday. The food was great to our taste, which was mostly Indian. The Tandoori and the sandwiches were also great. the property is a bit old and some upgradation and improvement in upkeep would do them better. The rooms have wooden flooring that is a comfort in the temperature. Staff was extremely good to us. The owner Mr. Khanna stays there most of the time and is watchful. We were gifted a bonfire evening, even though at that time we were the only two family there. WE had fun with some TT game and they have a swimming pool too.
The best part is the location , which is about 3 km away from the very crowded main Dharamsala Market and the view of the valley and the snow peaks is excellent. We could have nice morning walks around the Hotel and there is a spring very close by.
they provided good heaters and attended to any discomfort. The lift at the entrance is a good idea , but none inside.
It's a good value for money place in a quite , serene location, away from markets, if you want peace and view.
Wish the hotel all the luck. - Sanjit Mitra

Room Tip: the snow peaks are viewed best from the corner rooms. We stayed in 206 ( corner ) and 205. Each has...

We stayed at Snow Hermitage Resort, when we were in Dharamshala, and we were very happy with the location of the hotel, as it offered a spectacular view from the rooms. The view was so breathtaking that after we checked in the hotel, we quickly unpacked in our rooms and just sat in our balconies, had tea and lounged there for hours. It was so calming and relaxing. The staff was very pleasant and made us feel extremely comfortable. The rooms were very spacious and extremely clean. The beds were comfortable with clean bed linen. My only issue was that the bathrooms were not well maintained and cleaned. It was a major letdown. The hotel is a bit far from the main market area. The hotel was also expensive as compared to other hotels, given the kind of service and amenities they provided. So, it is inconvenient to get there unless you have your own vehicle. I would suggest the hotel for its view but not for the inconvenient location. There are cheaper hotels, with better locations. We were satisfied with the hotel, but if we are there any time again, we would prefer a hotel, closer to the marketplace.

If your are planning to go Dharamshala, never go to Snow Hermitage as Mr. Khanna is looking after all booking of the property, the quality of services, rooms, location is very very poor, do not spoil your valuable trip with snow hermitage, the staff & Mr. Khanna are always ready to fight using abusing language, even in front of their customers. I thing better to stay in Dharamshala located on road sides.

While the hotel is not up to the mark what it shows online.
Avoid staying in this hotel. Better to stay in a cheaper hotel close to the market as it is 5km from market & not many in dharamhsala no about this hotel.
Mattresses are hard like rocks so u can not sleep properly
Staff is not responsive for any kind of help.
Food is not of good quality.
Swimming pool is not clean.
Rooms & Bathrooms does not match today's standards
No added advantage of booking in advance.
Waste of money & Holiday in this hotel.

Snow Hermitage is a hidden gem. It was a little hard to find because its located outside of the city and I think that is really great.
After a long drive from Amritsar to Dharmsala (due to bad roads) we were so happy to see this hotel surrounded with peace, quiet and serenity. My husband and I were the only people staying in the hotel that night because it was off season. All the staff people were very attentive and happy to have a guest. Immediately they gave us nice cold/filtered water and some juice. The minute we got to our room we were happy that it was a nice big room with basics (fan, tv, nice bed and balcony chairs) but the shocker was the view from the balcony. One word for the view - WOW!

We wanted some beers so one of staff guy went to the market and got us loads of beer.

We had a gorgeous view of Dhauladhar range(southern branch of the main Outer Himalayan chain of mountains). We asked one of the staff guy if we can check out the roof just so we can get another view of his gorgeous mountain range. He was happy to take us to the roof. And the view was breathtaking. The hotel owner's room was on the terrace. So he came out, gave us lots of info on the area, gave us tips on some good photo opportunities and let us use his terrace area for the rest of the evening. He told his kitchen staff to put our beers in the fridge(no fridge in the room)and bring them to us as and when we want them. He asked is staff people to put chairs and table for us on the terrace so we can have our dinner while we enjoy the gorgeous view. It was great hospitality.

In the morning they had tasty chai and breakfast for us. We went for walk around the mountain range. It was very peaceful. We went to the Shiva temple and enjoyed nice breeze around the river. We had rented a car with a driver and that was perfect for us to get around the town.

Snow Hermitage is very personable hotel. Not your typical hotel. It has a very chill vibe to it. Our only regret was that we didn't stay there long enough. It is a place you go to whenn you need to gather your thoughts, relax, rejuvenate and revive. Next time we might do a month stay at this place.

Thank you everyone at Snow Hermitage for making our stay so comfortable.
