“Great Place with Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Loved the Place. Awesome Place. Awesome Staff. Awesome Food and everything was Awesome. We checked in later in the evening, just had kept our luggage with them. When we shown our room it was beautiful view, dont have the pics. Later the room keeping guy came n told us. They have organised a Bonfire musical night. Surprisingly the food was great. It was just like home made food. We met Miss. Radhika and she personally took the feedback and we were happy with the way things were going.

The only problem we had was our room was on ground floor and the floor on 1st floor was of woods. Whenever anyone walked on 1st floor above our room we can hear the foot taps. And Yes the entry of hotel is like as if we are trekking.

I just came back from Dharamshala, while staying with a renowned Resort, and then I compared my stay with Grand View Dalhousie. It was such a nice stay in Grand View, that I want to go there again & again. I stayed in the old wing of the Hotel, the rooms were luxurious, the food was good and the staff was very polite and eager to help you. All the credit goes to Mrs. Radhika who was always supportive and helping. I have also recommended to some of my friends to visit Dalhousie, only to stay with Grand view.All the Good wishes to Radhika Ji.

Room Tip: Every room is nice so choose any one.

I would like to thank …Mrs. Radhika Chaddha……Owner of GRAND VIEW she arrange personally our stay and surprisingly upgrade us Royal Suite in new wing ….really memorable stay at DALHOUSIE, but unfortunately I couldn’t meet Mrs. Chaddha she were not in the town we want to thanks her personally..any way …
Luxurious spacious room …The food was good with verity and well thought out. We really enjoyed the buffet breakfast and dinner. They have other activity also Tambola, Live Music, library ,Indoor Games ,SPA,….
The owner, Ashish Chaddha takes personal interest in meeting the guests and addressing their needs. The entire staff is very customer service focused and is always ready to serve with a smile.

I would love to go back to Dalhousie and stay at the Grand View any day
You can have the feel of British era……in GRAND VIEW only

We were particularly impressed by the awesome view that the Grand View (aptly named) hotel had to offer, especially of the snow capped Himalayas and valleys covered with Pine and Deodar trees. The old wing of the hotel including the dining hall had a rich colonial feel and gives you a certain sense of warmth and comfort.The service and hospitality at the hotel was simply superb and they gave us a royal treatment right from the time we checked in. From arranging for candle light dinner to evening bon fire, the hotel staff (particularly a gentleman named Mr.Balwant) left no stone unturn to ensure that this would be a special and memorable stay for us. Dalhousie as a place was beautiful beyond imagination and far less crowded and commercial, as a result we could enjoy the place at our own pace at leisure. It was very heartening to interact with Mrs. Chaddha, the owner of the property, and we were floored by her grace and modesty. The spread for breakfast and dinner was very exhasutive with choice of cuisines from Indian (including some of the Himachali delicacies) to international ones. Apart from that Kwality restaurant at Gandhi Chowk (which is part of Grand View's chain) was equally refreshing. All in all Grand View is the place to be at if you are planning a trip to Dalhousie.

Going by the excellent reviews on trip adviser we made up plans to stay at Grand View Hotel while visiting Dalhousie in the first week of June. Though we had firmed up our plans in last week of April2013 to visit Dalhousie we could get booking only for 1 day i.e 4-5 June. We did not have the choice of room as they were having only luxury rooms left available with them. Even then we booked our rooms. (3 rooms) with difficulty as the numbers provided on the website for telephonic booking were not very responsive and booking through travel portals was simply not possible as they were showing the hotel as full.
Once we were at the hotel we got to know why the hotel is in such great demand.
The location, the views, the ambience, the food,live singing during extensive buffet dinner, the personnel touch of Mrs Chaddha the owner, star gazing during night ( We actually saw the Saturn rings), the extensive library, high class service of staff everything was just amazing.
As far as the rooms are concerned, they were in the newly constructed luxury block with wooden flooring and a modern bathroom fitted with bathtub. The good thing about the bathroom was that while filling bathtub there was no dearth of hot water which generally happens at hill stations.
Icing on the cake was in the form of complimentary coffee coupons, discount coupons for meals at their sister concern at 'Quality restaurant' at the mall ( We had a delicious lunch out there) and discount coupons for boating ride at the Chamera lake.
Actually the hotel itself is one of the reason to visit Dalhousie!

Room Tip: Rooms in the luxury block are fitted with central heating system, have good modern amenities and off...

We stayed for 2 days in delux room. It was amazing, the personal touch which we got was unbelievable. My son is 3 yr old and the owner Radhikaji herself asked if we needed phulkas to be made if child is having trouble eating Nan. Everyday I was personally asked by her if we were comfortable. Service was excellent, the waiters served with a smile and were more than willing to cooperate. Rooms were clean. We could actually see both sunrise and sunset from our balcony. Awesome view. It's worth every penny you pay them. Star gazing, games were all free. They also had a small evening of tambola and dance organised with no extra charges. Food is fine with lots of variety at buffet. Of 30-40 hotels I have stayed in till date, this was surely the best in parameter of service.
