“Keep Rocking...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

It's indeed a home away from home.
Mr and Mrs. Bhalla are the most wonderful hosts. I had stayed in couple of homestays in and around South India but those were just the stays and not homes. Here, at Birds n Chirps, we felt we are at home with the best people around. I really liked the transparency. The best part is they come down personally to recieve us and they share the same food. Also, they share their experiences which indeed is a take away. Learnt a lot on living life cheerfully. My son, enjoyed with Sugar and Auro. He is insisting on pets now.

Good ones:
1. The hosts
2. Ambience
3. Food
4. Garden, plants and the mint in front of our rooms.

Only the climb to the rooms was bit tiring but the smile and the invitation of the hosts makes it less tiring.

Keep Rocking...

I came to Himachal after almost 17 years, with my wife & kid and was really looking forward to the vacation. The stay at BirdsnChirps was a memorable one. The location is great, Bhallas are wonderful hosts, food is amazing and barbeques were yummy. Located slightly away from the city (just about 2kms), the place is breath taking and very well maintained. Would love to go back there for another vacation.

It was my first trip to dalhousie with my wife.... I Must say Birds n chiprs made our honeymoon most romantic and life time memorable, we didn't missed our family there even, just due to Dr Bhalla family.... they behave and care like actual parents.. they are the best host and cutest couple ever, be both enjoyed there a lot, its not a hotel or guest house its like your own home, where u will be treated like the most closed family guests very beautifully by the Dr Bhalla and Mrs Bhalla.. How u feel if owner of the property welcomes u with open arms, behave and cares like actual parents and also worried about your safety when u travel out side of home stay..
This place also provides the great sceneries, beautiful birds near home stay, beautiful rooms and most testy foods which i still miss.. I strongly suggest to stay at this place if u really want a treatment like home and wants to feel the beauty of nature, Birds n Chirps is alone enough in Dalhousie to make your trip life time memorable and u will surely plan to visit there again like me.... :)

Room Tip: i stayed at the south corner side of the room, the room and bed was simply excellent, the entire Dal...

A group of 27 is never easy to manage and I was too anxious about managing the whole big family and my friends. A great kick off to our himalayan sojourn. The entire stay was truly awesome with Bhalla's hospitality. Ms.Bhalla was too sweet and she treated me like a mother. Hats off to the bhalla couple for their bountyful energy, charisma and perseverance. Mr.Bhalla in the late night all by himself had come to GPO (the center of dalhousie) to receive us at the home stay. No where I have seen the hospitality which is so true and close like a family. It was like visiting a relative's place. Indian Hospitality at its best. The right place for friends esp youngsters.

If you are bringing old people or people having problem climbing stairs; please inform Mr.Bhalla in advance to make necessary arrangement. His tenacious will to help, serve and his energy is truly admirable which is very difficult to match even by a youth!

I will visit again for sure!!!!!

Dear Guest the pleasure was mutual having you all with us . Big or small Group you all expect to be with a Family out here . I still remember the night when your Big Luxurious Bus was stopped at the Bus Stand as Heavy Private Vehicles are not allowed to ply in the Hills & you were unaware about it . Three trips in 2 Cars , we could have you all with us AT 2.30 am .Those 3 days spent with you all are memorable for Us too . Thanks indeed for putting such Gracious words for Us .Sure going to load some pictures of you all on Tripadvisor .We look forward to more such memorable visits from You all . Thanks indeed .

Not just in words and phrases, BIRDS N CHIRPS or rather the Bhalla’s and we are a family now and ever after. It was my second visit at Kanwal Uncle and Aruna Aunty’s place and I had gone just to spend quality time with them as well as Roohi and Nikhar who were also coming along with grandma. This was an absolute family get-together even in the hustle and bustle of innumerous guests who arrived in groups of about 20-25 people. This time apart from the beauty of the place I got to see the perseverance of uncle and aunty 24x7 and I failed to understand that even after such hectic routine, they have the stamina of greeting and receiving people, arranging each and everything for them perfectly and diligently even at odd and wee hours. I have taken a lot of things as lesson in life. Once you visit this place, you will also realize that this place is meant for cultured people of class and taste. I would suggest uncle to utilize his vast experience of neurology and extend birds and chirps too. I convey my best regards and love to them….

EXCELLENT!!

Don't know where to begin with first, but the whole experience is a memory I would carry for LIFE. This is a place at a Nice location, Peaceful, Fresh & Green.... its for sure that these guy's UNDERCHARGE you for the services they provide. You meet a wonderful family as a Host and for sure they make you a part of their family. Great hospitality, nice place, nice food & beautiful evenings.

Do not expect fancy rooms, but all the rooms clean and are with great views and justify "HOME STAY". Neither is this place for privacy, Just feel as how would it be when you are visiting guests at someone's home and are joined by wonderful hosts themselves. Its a "efforted" climb up to the rooms from road, but every step is Worth a walk.

Its an Interesting CONCEPT were Hosts gel in with guests to make them comfortable with property and place, Mr. Bhalla talks of history of Dalhousie with dates and shares his experiences of this area which are worth knowing. Make it a point to spend time with him individually and sure you are gonna enjoy!!

1. Its a PET FRIENDLY PLACE.

2. You enjoy HOME LIKE FOOD.

3. You get Best of Homely Hospitality.

4. You interact with Great People (Mr. & Mrs. Bhalla N Family).

5. You get to rest in lap of nature from where for sure you won't wanna be back.

6. Have fun with Team of Cute dogs.

7. If you love to try different Holidays your carry bundles of MEMORIES FOR LIFE!!

Happy Holidays!
MUST TRY

when we decided to visit himachal wid 4 yrs old child,homestay concept attracts me,however it was completely new to me!but i searched for good honestays in himachal-i found two good-one at naggar and another at dalhousie...at BnC ,we dont feel like away from home!although located at 2 km away from proper dalhousie,and lacking view of pir panjal range,this place provide excellent opportunity to relax in vicinity of nature,among trees of oak,devdar and pine wid lots of birds..!all rooms havin huge glass windows and doors providing very good views even from inside room...very good food-taste as well as hygiene...however just like any home,all guests as well as our hosts mr and mrs bhalla ate together at night on terrace...few people wanting privacy may be uncomfortale wid this idea!veg and non-veg serving together!however the hosts very well take care to ask for any hesitation wid this!at last our host-dr bhalla(he's a neurosurgeon!)and mrs bhalla took care of their guests very well!mrs bhalla even didnt forget to send a glassfull milk for our little one every morning and tried to provide meals at early time for her!! We're very much impressed...thanks mr and mrs bhalla ,we'll definately like to visit BnC again...
