A sudden trip to dalhousie was planned in the month of march...and the best in dalhousie I.e the amod resorts was booked out...going by the reviews of grand view hotel..we went ahead and booked our stay for three nights and we were not disappointed....:))

There is a steep walk up to the hotel but the view from the rooms of the snow capped mountains is just awesome....the evening greets you with twinkling lights of the city too...

The staff is courteous and cordial, food was fine too...the rooms have a old property feel to them with wooden flooring and wooden roof....they can improve a bit on the cleanliness of the rooms and the bathrooms...there were some small issues of hot water in the toilets and a not so clean bathtub..

Saturday nights there is live music and one can listen to old English numbers which makes the dinner pleasurable....

All in all it was a not so good not so bad stay...but dalhousie as a place is beautiful...so would recommend a visit to the place...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had booked 4 rooms. The location of this hotel is awesome and offers a breathtaking view of the valley and snow clad mountains. The view is simply heavenly and you can only see it to experience it.

We stayed in the Luxury Rooms. The rooms were spacious with a private balcony. The heating system in the room is decent, though there is scope for improvement. The rooms were neat and bathrooms were tidy. The good thing was we had supply of hot water.

The service and food were both amazing. The restaurant is a bit far, it was a long walk from the room to the restaurant, but I enjoyed the walk too. At night, there was a telescope put up in the garden to study the stars.

They also had camp fires and music. Over-all a great experience! :)

The hotel is just brilliant.... the view from the luxury rooms are brilliant.... just sit back in the balcony and look at the snow capped mountains and the valley. Please note that there is a climb to the hotel entrance which is slightly difficult ..... but once ur on top, the garden view and the mountains makes u forget everything.

The food variety for dinner or breakfast is one of the best i have had on my platter for a long time in India and would rate it high.

Really enjoyed the luxury rooms. spacious ,.... beware of monkey... avoid rooms 403,303 which are more prone to monkey visits.

Overall a very decent place..... Hotel suggestions to the Chamera lake would be ok as did not find anything great about it.

Room Tip: Luxury Rooms but not room no 403 ,303 as there are chances of monkeys visiting u in the morning as t...

I booked this Hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor & advise from some close friends who stayed there.We stayed here for 3 nights and booked 3 Luxury Rooms with Breakfast & Dinner. This was one of the finest experience as the rooms were really clean with bathrooms & closets. The view was excellent from the room. You have the Dhauladhar mountains with snow best viewed from Luxury rooms.
This hotel has Garden Deluxe room as well which also has the good reputation & good view. These rooms are old Property & are as per English style. Hotel has lift facility also which is required for going to Luxury rooms/suits.
The Hotel staff was very polite & ready to help you in quick way. During our stay the Hotel also arranged a Bonfire including DJ party which was really full of Fun & awesome experience.

The Bus stand/Taxi stand is at a stone throw from the Hotel. Being a small hill station you do not find good eating joints at Dalhousie so better go for Breakfast & Dinner with the Package. The food quality is really awesome serving with different varieties in Veg & Non Veg both. The Hotel also has library & small theatre for watching films.

About Dalhousie :-

There are two chowks ( both in opp direction) one is Gandhi chowk which is a famous chowk & have small market ( Tibetan market as well) & the other one is Subhash chowk which do not have anything. You can shop in Tibetan mkt other then that there is not much of shopping available here in Dalhousie. Tourist Point are Chemera Lake which is close to 40 km run one side from the Hotel. You can do the Boating & enjoy the peace of lake with the Mountains. The local taxi will charge you about Rs 1800 for Sumo/Tavera cars. Pls take a visiting card from the Hotel as there is 20% discount on boating charges which only this hotel in Dalhousie can provide. Other main Tourist point is Khajjiar ( called Mini Switzerland), Snow Point where you can find the snow & takes the snaps/videos. This also has good distance of 35 km one side. You can do Horse riding in Khajjiar but do bargain with them as they ask of higher amount.
Dalhousie is a Serene place not crowded like Nainital or mussorie. So one can easily enjoy the Tranquility here !!

To sum up it was indeed a customer delight with Grandview Hotel !!

Room Tip: All Rooms are Good but take Luxury Rooms as it has excellent view !!

Nice hotel, need to get porter from hotel to assist with bags as car can not go to hotel entrance. Walking distance to local convenience store near bus stand at foot of hotel entrance. Clean spacious rooms with modern central heating. Helpful staff with child friendly amenities. Stunning views of the Himalayan range from the hotel. Good selection of breakfast. Nice buffet dinner too with some light karaoke entertainment! They do the best masala tea!.

For us it was a stop over on the way to Dharamsala. A day trip from here is to Khajjar (known as mini Switzerland) The road there may be closed at certain times of the year but you can still go a certain way to Snow Point for views. Our driver didn’t mention this, we guess because he didn’t want to drive that day!

Be advised, we booked via Hotels.com and this was the only hotel where we had to pay an additional amount (taxes) for the rooms on top of what we had pre-paid. It is in the small print.

I had stayed in Grandview from 30th March 2013 till 2 April. It was an excellent experience, hotel staff, location, food ..everything was great. I am really impressed with the level of hospitality offered by the hotel.My 17 months old daughter had fallen sick during our trip, when i requested the hotel staff if they could get me details of any doctor in dalhousie...they immediately contacted the doctor and even arranged for the appointment. I have been to lot of places in India and abroad but seldom i have seen such an impressive speed of execution.I really look forward to visit Grandview in future and would recommend all to stay there whenever they visit Dalhousie. last but not the least the view from our room was breath taking... :)
