“Himalayas at a Budget Price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

Dalhousie is a strange tourist destination. Old, under-developed, in some ways neglected and attracting only a few western tourists and, then, only for a few days. Yet, it is has some of the most stunning Himalayan Range views of all the hill-stations. My wife and I have spent some 2 to 3 months each year at Hotel Crags. It's an old home converted to a small budget hotel and has to have one of India's most helpful managers, Jogi (Joginder).
Not only does he do everything to maintain the place, prepare the meals, clean the rooms, reception etc. but he does so with wonderful attention and consideration for his guests.
The hotel does not, in itself, present well other than it is quaint and old ( claimed to be heritage). Its furnishings are tired and everything could do with a spruce and clean-up - but it's inexpensive, very well situated for ease of accessibility to the important parts of the small and quaint township and quite honestly we believe it is possibly the best deal in that town.
The hotel has very pleasant valley views. If you want to spend 5 - 10 times more, you can get very lovely rooms at the luxury hotels which enjoy spectacular mountain views.
Frankly, we enjoyed the meals more at Hotel Crags at just a fraction of the price and we confined ourselves to visiting those luxury hotels only for teas on the verandas. Very pleasant way to spend time.
Jogi makes the very best of what he's got at his disposal and ensures that you will be made as comfortable as possible.
Think budget - understand budget in India and then enjoy and be pleased by Jogi's hospitality at Hotel Crags.
Must add that we have never been there during peak-season. Our remarks are confined to out-of-season/shoulder periods.
We have always stayed in the cottage which stands apart from the main house itself.
There is no internet facility at the hotel.

I stayed one week at this lovely, typical hill station hotel. Peaceful, serene and in a lovely setting. Logendra and his brother Ganesh gave excellent sevice - nothing was a problem for them. I highly recommend this little gem.....
