Dalhousie Palace Hotel
Ranked #31 of 37 Hotels in Dalhousie
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Since we just had a one night stay over in Dalhousie, we decided to go for a budget hotel. Dalhousie Palace seemed to be a good bet considering the price and the location, since its located very near to the Subhash Chowk.
We had booked a super deluxe room. The check in process was smooth. Its a small no fuss hotel.Though the room was small, it was clean. The best part was that the room had a sit out area covered with glass offering a lovely view of Dalhousie. In the morning, the view was breathtakingly lovely. The bathroom was small but neat and functional.
The hotel is not grand by any sense but a very good budget option with breathtaking views from some of its rooms.

Room Tip: Ours was the room on the last corner and had a sit out area covered with glass offering fabulous vie...

This place is located near Subhash Chowk. We had done online booking for 2 rooms and thus check-in was very swift and efficient. We arrived early and were accommodated without any fuss. We asked for good view rooms and we were allocated a corner room with best view possible.

The best part of our trip was the view from hotel room! There isn't much with local sight seeing in Dalhousie. The corner room had full length glass windows which provided a spectacular view of the valley. This part of the room was the rest area apart from a bedroom and a bathroom. Kids enjoyed for sure!

The room service was indeed excellent! The food was good and the prompt service made us feel at home. We couldn't have asked for more when it comes to hospitality.

The only negative was the heater charge. A single coil heater cost us 250/- which was quite steep compared to others.

Room Tip: Corner rooms with glass windows provide a very good view of the valley.

The hotel is located near subhash chowk (the upper market of Dalhousie). The hotel, like the others, has the terrace adjacent to the road, i.e. you get to the top floor as soon as you enter the gate from the road.

When we arrived we found that only the uppermost floor rooms are operational. The rooms underneath were under renovation. But there was absolutely no disturbance/noise from this renovation and we had peaceful 3 days there. The quality of the rooms differs widely so ensure that your room is good before you move in. We were put up in the only available room on arrival but were shifted to other room the next day on request.

The restaurant wasn't operational but the room service was excellent. Both the quality and quantity of the food was worth above the price charged. We had kadhi pakoda (local speciality) and dal khichdi twice as we liked it so much. Our package had breakfast included and it was very filling and full of variety. Everything from the menu was always available. The service of the hotel boy Sonu Kumar Sood was outstanding and we gave him a handsome tip at the end of our stay.

The taxi stand is about 2 mins walk from the hotel. The view of the pir panjal range from the windows of (most of) the rooms was breathtaking, and I am attaching it as a souvenir of the memorable stay. There were many birds coming in at the time as well.

This hotel doesn't have "luxury" but brands itself as cozy with great service. Well worth the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor

The staff is very cooperative. Hotel was under renovation and hence should be good to stay in May'11. Location is good - facing a valley and about 3km from Mall Road which is a good walk alongside a valley.

Room Tip: Rooms on extreme end have direct valley view.

One of the best middle-range hotels in town, in walking distance to many famous tourist sites. All the rooms, cable flat screen TV, They also have ensuite spacious bathroom with bathtub, and other amenities. I would recommend this hotel to anyone the rooms are cleaned 6 times a week the food is like something you have never tasted before.

I stayed here for 2 days. It is very near to main market hardly a kilometer. Room was clean. Food was nice. The view from hotel room of long facade of wood and the Himalayan snow peaks seem within touching distance. It is well maintained place. We had hired a car from Manali to Dalhousie and had driver alongwith us. This hotel provide place where even drivers can stay. The cost is less. Service was good. In short, you would get full value for your money spend.

The location of the hotel is good as it is not bang on Subhash chowk and not too far away from it either. It is a small 10 minute walk to subhash chowk.The staff is friendly and courteous, tip them liberally at the end of the stay (50-10 Rs.) and also during the middle of the stay. The staff is good. The hotel has a very good view of the PirPanjal himlayan range and is very clearly visible in december - Jan. The temp. plummets during these days, but the heating device (heater rod machine) is miserably short of heating the room. The room is not clean and the carpets were not maintained in the room. Give it a skip if cleanliness is a priority for you. All in all I am neutral about this hotel.
