Reviewed August 20, 2013

I booked this hotel purely on Trip Advisor's reviews and m proud i made the right choice. The Hotel is about 80-85 KMs from Pathankot station and just opposite to Dalhousie Bus stand. Taxi from Pathankot station would charge anywhere between 1300-1600 INR ( One way). The hotel location is superb with a small market at the base with useful shops. View from the Luxury room is spectacular. the hotel is recently renovated and has all the modern facilities. The owners are very professional and hospitable. The Staff is helpful and polite. There is a housie night in the hotel on saturday which is a great time pass in the evening where you play, drink, eat and dance. Good and decent breakfast spread and delicious dinner. All in all great hotel and experience.

I have been to Dalhousie in last week of July and chose to stay at The Grand View Hotel. I must admit that my experience at the hotel was far more awesome than i had expected it to be. I had read good reviews about the hotel before going and they really lived up to it. It was my husbands birthday and i wanted him to feel special while we were there. I spoke to Ms. Radhika for all the arrangements and she managed everything for us beautifully. She arranged for flowers(which come from 50+kms away), birthday cake, candle light dinner, balloon decoration and all that I had asked for. They also made sure that we dont face any problems during our stay. The hotel is beautifully located and you can see the mountain ranges from the rooms. We stayed in the Royal Suite in the new wing which is the best room in the hotel. Very nice, clean, spacious and aesthetically pleasing. The hotel has a library, extensive list of movie CDs/DVDs that you can choose from, spa and large spaces to relax and just enjoy the weather. The garden is extremely well maintained and they have swings etc to keep the children busy!. The best part of this hotel is the food. No matter where you go in Dalhousie, this hotel has the best food and no one can match upto it. They have a good spread of meals (indian, chinese, continental, italian, south indian etc just to name a few). Mrs. Chadha and her son are present personally at all meal times to ensure that the guests are taken care of well. You dont get to see this kind of service in most of the hotels including 5 star hotels. The ambience, staff, location, landscape, food.. everything is just excellent. I would recommend to stay in this hotel if you want to have a relaxed and comfortable stay. They also had musical evenings at dinner time while we were there which were enjoyable. Overall, this is a great property, well maintained and the guests are taken care of very well. They offer personalized services to all their guests and go out of the way to make your stay worthwhile. Me and my family had an awesome time at Grand View.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer a good view of the mountain ranges!

I have been to Dalhousie during the first week of April 2013. Just flicking through the net, I got to view some reviews of the Hotel Grand View and I decided to take a chance by staying in this property. The reviews did not dissapoint me rather the experience of the stay had exceeded my imagination. The ambience, fooding, service quality...all were superb...The rooms were spacious and the luxury block where I stayed was truly worth the every penny spent....Highly recommended for stay at Dalhousie....Hotel Grand View...

I have visited this place in April first week and I must admit that place have lived up to the most of the expectation that I carried with while entering this place. View is fantastic, Food is good, Variety are more than enough for those who choose to spend 2-3 nights in this hotel, service is prompt and everything is perfect. However one things that have stuck in my mind was the room that have been allotted to me. Light in the balcony was not working (However, this have been immediately replaced once we bought this to hotel management) and even after it was working, there was no enough light in the balcony to have Candle Light Dinner. Apart from this there couple of more issue with "Inconsistently" lighting in the room which have been taken care as soon as we bought this to management notice. The reason why I am explaining this is that "this things should have been taken care before we moved into our room rather than taking care after we complained about those things"

Putting Lighting stuff behind, this hotel have more than a reason why couple should choose this hotel in Dalhousie for romantic getaway. Management have taken care almost every things that can make there guest's holiday memorable. They have nice set up for Lunch/Dinner which is accompanied by fantastic Karaoke session, Bonfire, DJ and star-gazing and more. They even helped us with some good collection of movie CD/DVD and of course DVD Player. Check-In and Check-Out was as swift as you can think of. No hassle nothing. There is good garden in there premise where you can sit quietly and look at the beautiful nature that have been holding dalhousie in his arms. Room were big, clean and had beautiful view. there is nothing more you can talk about when you get things which are 100% Perfect to the standard.

Indeed, there is steep walk to enter the hotel premise and also to reach your room but it all worth a walk in this beautiful surrounding. For elders, they might have to think before they go ahead and book this hotel for there holiday.

Thanks to entire Grand View management for making our trip memorable. It was great experience visiting your place.

Cheers!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights (17th and 18th July).

This hotel was right at the entrance of Dalhousie and was really well maintained.
The garden was beautiful and thus a pleasure to look at.

We had stayed in the luxury block of the hotel which is newly constructed.
The rooms were spacious, comfortable and modern. Each room had an attached balcony and offered a great view of the valley.

The service was good. The owners gave personal attention to each guest to ensure that the stay is comfortable which was a pleasant surprise.

The food was nice. The dining hall is part of the old block and exudes old world charm.
This combined with live singing during dinner time makes food more enjoyable.

Extra activities - bonfire and Tambola organised in the evenings
