Club Mahindra Dharamshala
Ranked #56 of 79 Hotels in Dharamsala
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Given the reviews on TripAdvisor I was a little apprehensive about staying at the resort. While the location did not look very appealing at the time of check-in, later on it proved to be one of the best locations. It is 4 kms from Dharamshala city and 13-14 kms from McLeodganj. The flip side is that you cant hope to have dinner at McLeodganj every night, as I had originally planned. But the location does help you get in and get out easily, even to the other side (towards Palampur). We spent 3 nights at the resort. having read the reviews I specifically asked for a room that had a good view and the resort delivered although it did not promise me anything when I called in to put in a request. Although some of the reviewers had mentioned faulty geyser, I did not have a bad experience. The check-in was quick and we were given a room (304) which gave us a great view of the snow-clad mountains. I must, however, say that the room can do with a little bit of renovation (wooden flooring and a more modern bathroom). The kids had a great time in the play area outside, trying their hand at badminton and basketball. There is an activity room on the top floor which is better. There is an endless list of activities at the resort to keep the family busy in case you decide to stay put and skip sightseeing. Because of the distance we ended up having breakfast and dinner at the resort itself but there is no reason to complain as the menu was good and the food was well made. Last but not the least, the staff is excellent and very hard working (u see the same manager for breakfast and dinner)!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the main road, opt for one with a good view of the mountains

We stayed from 16th to 19 March. Good location but 12 KM away from main market. We went for tracking and asked for innova car they provided some big bus, which dropped us 3 km before starting point of actual track and that wasted our time. We asked for innova again to drop us to pathankot cantt, hotel again arranged some other car. Food is good. nice activities arranged by hotel. But overall not value for money.

Room Tip: You can find a good hotel in main area like mcleodganj becoz you have to go there as this is the mai...

We visited on 15th March'14 and stayed for 4 days. We a family of 8, ranging from age 8 - 70, had 2 rooms facing the mountains and one facing the road. The view from each was very different. The experience was great! The rooms were spacious and clean, staff courteous and helpful as everywhere in Mahindra, the food finger licking good especially the Kala khatta channa and the hospitality excellent.
We enjoyed the games organized by the staff. Yes, the property is not as great as Mahindra usually is and there are not too many activities, but overall it was a great stay!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the mountains have a better view and are quieter.

Visited on 14th Feb'14 and stayed for 3 days. The property is not double small compare to other properties of Club Mahindra. But still it is very excellent experience. The room are very gud. I with my family and booked a 1BR and both side view are good specially the back side mountain view. More than everything I really like the hospitality by Club Mahindra Team member is very good. Local market for daily use (if required) is also nearby.

Room Tip: One should take 1BR or Back side facing.

we went and stayed here for three nights and it felt far too long for us, their is no atmosphere to be enjoyed inside the hotel, they do call it a resort but their is no swimming pool and hardly much off a garden we had higher expectations from the hotel than what we saw, some of the male staff is a bit hard to cope with and they can do with some discipline lessons, however the 2 girls were really nice and helpful as well as the taxi services.
