Grand View Hotel
Ranked #1 of 36 Hotels in Dalhousie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We stayed at the Grand view Dalhousie for 3 nights and I cannot compliment the hotel and its staff enough. Conveniently located near the bus stop but secluded enough to not get any noise. Sweeping panorama of the 7 hill ranges from all the rooms, beautifully maintained garden and tasteful breakfast and dinner buffet every day.

Suggest to put smoked glass between the balconies in the luxury rooms in the interest of guest comfort.

Full compliments to the management

A lot has been said and almost everything has been mentioned in the previous reviews which even I considered before booking this gem of a Hotel at Dalhousie. And I second everything positive said about this Hotel and might just be repeating a few views already expressed by many.

The best part is I felt was to get taste of both the old world charm through the huge and superbly maintained dining hall and elder half of the Hotel and also modernistic rooms with all the five star comfort you need in the new wing of the Hotel. The views from the rooms at the newer wing of the hotel that are luxury rooms and royal suites are indeed mesmerising. It was a delight to enjoy the morning coffee at the sit outs (balcony) with fresh clean air and breath taking views,

Coming down to meals and buffet arrangements. It was indeed lavish. Not exotic but lavish. Being a non-vegan I thoroughly enjoyed meat and chicken served along with the veggie options served. But both me and my year old son were bigger fans of the desserts. Very nice and huge spread both at breakfast and dinner. Dinner tasted better though if I must mention.

Lastly the most important aspect of our stay, service. We had an infant with us so we were a little demanding at times. But all our demands were met with a wide smile and affirmation which kept us joyous all the time. The owners too themselves make a constant effort to do best they can by being available to accept conplaints, feedbacks and suggestions. IN all the service was prmopt, exact and fabulous in all other aspects too.

PS : A special note of thanks to Balwant (service boy at dining hall) who made an extra effort to ensure we are comfortable and that we have all we need available to us in time throughout our stay.

We stayed 3 nights (Sep 12 - 14, 2013) in this hotel and was indeed very pleasantly surprised with the facilities and service provided. We arrived from Pathankot by road in early hours, however were attended to and our room was given to us. The room had all modern amenities and far exceeded our expectations. It also had a balcony and wonderful view of the valley. The service was excellent with staff attentive and helpful. Buffet breakfast and dinner had multiple dishes to chose from. We spent 3 wonderfully quite days in Dalhousie, away from the fast paced frenetic city life, close to nature. We recommend this hotel to any one who wishes to visit Dalhousie.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors have better view of the valley.

Dalhousie, despite being an exceptionally beautiful place, has never seen interest by the large hotel chains in the country. So, unlike Shimla, Mussoorrie etc. one doesn't see names such as Taj, Oberoi, JayPee, present here. Given this, Grand View still proves to be a great hotel and stands out in a collection of other hotels that are mostly small, offering basic facilities.

The view from the hotel is awesome. It has lush beautiful gardens overlooking the mountains. The rooms in the luxury block, where we stayed were spacious, modern and comfortable. The bathrooms were great with modern fittings.

The food in the restaurant was decent and there is considerable variety available, both for breakfast and dinner. The service is warm and personal. The name of one of the stewards Naresh Kumar deserves a special mention.

The front office, manned by Madan Sharma, is efficient and very accommodative.

The hotel has free wi-fi service available. But, that is the only part which could do with improvement. The internet magically disappears at around 10 pm and reappears at around 10 am or so. The signal strength is usually acceptable.

Selected this hotel after reading reviews on trip advisor and it came out to be the perfect option. From check in to checkout it was smooth and easy. I simply walked in and luckily there were couple of rooms available, fixe tariffs made it very easy to select the room and we were in our room in 15 minutes. All tariff includes breakfast and dinner buffet, all cooked to perfection with lots of variety. Neat and clean rooms with awesome views. I am going to visit again and stay here for another holiday.
