“EXCELLENT STAY, GRAND VIEW IN DALHOUSIE”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Grand View has perhaps the best location in Dalhousie facing the valley. Rooms have excellent decor, balcony facing the valley so that you can enjoy your cuppa tea gazing the valley. we had gone there in December, really enjoyed the winter chill standing in the balcony.

Food was excellent. Best part of the stay was the warm hospitality by all the staff. During the dinner time, owners of the hotel, Ashish and Radhika were always there to personally welcome and take care of each guest.

Tariff does not burn a big hole in the pockets.

I would stay, GV is the best place to stay in Dalhousie.

Room Tip: Top floor (4th Floor), valley facing. Lifts are there.

We visited in Mid December the very first thing you will notice is awesome view of the snow capped mountains and hotel. Hotel is located in the heart of the city. Hotel staff is very polite and always ready to serve you. The hotel rooms are pleasant and clean, room service was awesome, staffs were pretty hospitable, food was great and classy with the band singing Bollywood songs and he sings so well that you can’t ignore his voice.Hotel owner personally meets the guest during the dinner time and asked about the hospitality was good or not.

Me and my wife had a great time, it was a memorable trip.

First off, this hotel is your quintessential hill town property. One has to take a really flight of stairs to enter the hotel. However, the moment you enter, the view is so worth-the-climb. One of the oldest properties of Dalhousie, the front wing of the hotel is all woodwork with window boxes of flowers. Also the best rooms of the hotel are located in this wing. The owners have kept on adding wings (and they still are) to house more and more guests. The old block also houses the dining hall on the second floor. There are long wooden corridors with windows opening to mind blowing views of the mountains. The floors and stairs are all wooden. We got a room in one of the new wings. It had modern facilities but mostly utilitarian. We found a lizard on the shower curtain, which the local houseboy delicately took out to leave in the garden since they don't kill the animals there. The room service is not that excellent, probably because we were a large group and it was difficult to cater to so many. The food is excellent since all the produce is home grown and food is freshly made to serve.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the old section for the joy of staying in a hill cottage

The hotel caters to the best of varied tastes....catering for a relaxed holiday trip, offering the contemporary experiences, completely replete with modern day facilities with a very co-operative and helpful staff, who turn out to be extremely courteous, well mannered and simultaneously non- poky noses. The view of the Pir Panjal with leisurely walks around and a large spread of delicacies, surely add to the experience.
For the practical aspect, location- easily reached in centre of town with a " Grand View" to offer, rooms- clean and large, restored to the heritage value promised, food- sumptuous and with a large variety on offer, live music was a great add on....since travelling alone and being a bit of a recluse...never joined in the bonfire- otherwise its a sure puller for families and couples...Overall a fantastic experience.

Room Tip: Solo traveller...really doesnt matter...all rooms are fairly nice...For families, couples and not ea...

The magnificence of Pir Panjal Range manifests itself in its entire splendor the moment you walk in to your room and glance out of the balcony. This is the highlight of aptly name Grand View Hotel, which has a hundred year old history in the hospitality field.Our all inclusive package came with a lavish spread of Indian and Indianized Continental dishes. I say this because of the presence of corn flour in cream soups, which are traditionally based on Veloute or commonly known white sauce.Other than that the spread is big enough for one to pick and choose according to taste. To top it there was live music with a gentleman crooning old Kishore Kumar and Rafi numbers. The rooms are beautiful and the staff eager to please. Four days just flew by and we did not get tired of the view and the changing colours of the skyline. Even the proprietor makes it a point to supervise the eat sessions and interacts with the guests.
A piece of advice, book your taxi’s from the union office in the chowk, these guys are extremely territorial and do not allow drivers from other stand to eat in to their business. The hotel has wheelchairs for those in need, which is really thoughtful. Overall a wonderful experience and did I mention, the view is magnificent...

Room Tip: The rooms in the new wing have an unobstructed view of the Pir Panjal range.
