Reviewed September 26, 2011

Positives:
1. Ideal for those who wish to be away from the hustle bustle of the market place.
2. The Food was a part of our package (hence already paid for) but they would cater to us like our "personal Maharaj" getting the three of us huge serving portions of our individual dishes (we had to tell them the following day to reduce the serving size so that we wouldn't waste food) and it was very good food too. Steer clear of the fancy dishes, the desi is lip-smacking. I don't reco the coffee though (It had malai and I invariably needed to call for the strainer).
3. The Tree House & swing sets are a joy! The Garden is beautifully maintained. It's so much fun and picnic-y to be taking your meals in the lawn (especially when the weather is pleasantly chilly).
4. Helpful staff (but thats true of Himachalis per se)
Negatives:
1. It looks better from the outside than from the inside. It's sorta old and worn out inside (its got paint in place of polish on the wood) and when we got there on Day 1 we were thinking we had paid too much! But then the place sorta grows on you. So mebe you shouldn't stay here if you are only putting up for a night but then who puts up only for a night in Dalhousie! :D
2. The Bathrooms are neat and clean but nothing fancy and a little worse for wear. We had a 'suite' and of the two bathrooms, one didn't have a geyser but I was travelling single with my parents so it didn't matter much. The dustbin in the room wasn't cleaned and had something stickin on it but it didn't crawl ;-)
3. Don't go here with OLD people. Since it is perched on the hill side, there's a bit of a climb which might not be feasible for old/ knee trouble people since there's no lift and you gotcha walk it up.
4. The Passage is small (tiny) so God help you if you have noisy neighbours!
5. The extra bedding was a mattress (not a bed) for which they initially got only half a bedsheet but once we asked them, they changed it.
6. It doesn't have Air conditioners but even in May, we didn't miss them given that Dalhousie temps are comfy.

Frankly, though my list of Negatives reads longer I defi reco this place especially if ur getting it for around 3-4K a night and even more so if you are a large group (minus old people).

Room Tip: I guess higher the better - but mind it, there better not be any peeping toms on that tree house! :D

I went to Dalhousie in April, 2011. I had booked rooms in Alps Resort. The resort is about 3 kms away from the main market. The rooms were spacious but were ok in terms of interiors and amenities.

The highlight of the resort is the garden which has beautiful flowers. You can sit in the tables laid outside and order your coffee. The staff service was excellent and food was delicious. The rooms were good value for money.

The reception staff was also polite.

There is just one nuisance factor and that is the big dog that they have in cage at the back. It goes on barking continuously when he sees anyone new and will not stop barking till the person is gone from his sight.

Overall a very good place to be.

It was a good experience staying in this Hotel for the following reasons :-

1). Location - This hotel is about 2.5 km on way from Dalhouisie to Khajjiar so it is nice and quite.
2). Staff - Very helpful staff, treats all with a lot of respect.
3). Open Air Restaurant - Very nice to sit in the open and enjoy the food.
4). Food - Very fresh food, we stayed for 3 nights and only ate in this hotel and none of us ever had a stomach problem !!!!!!! Please remember to tell the staff to put ''LESS SALT''
5). Cost - We went at the peak of the season but found the prices looked very nominal and not jacked up !!!!
6). Grocery Shop : There is a grocery shop just 2 buildings away from the hotel so very convenient in case you have forgotten anything !!!!!

Room Tip: 1). Room No 101 to 107 are fairly new constructed. 2). If you are a couple with grown up kids ( abou...

Recently stayed in Alps resort in Dalhousie (16 May to 19 May2011) with extended family with children. I think this is the best hotel in Dalhousie especially for a family with children. With their beautiful garden, well maintained lawn, tree house, swings and most importantly best view of entire Dalhousie and mountains- nobody wants to leave the garden. My doughter practically spent whole day playing in the garden or in tree house. (temp being pleasant ) We also had all our dinners and B/F in the garden.
As far as roms are concerned they are clean, functional and cosy. Bathroom was clean with hot water etc.
Service was superb! The waiter with long mustache seems to be hovering near us whenever we needed to order something. Menu was short but tasty. One can have his food either in room or restaurant or garden.
The resort have their own spacious parking( which is a rarity in Dalhousie- being a hilly area)
In all best hotel in Dalhousie for family holiday.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms r adjacent to Lawn.(room 101 to 107)

We opted this hotel for its off beaten location as our day to day life revolves around crowd so we wanted our trip to be hassle free and views from hotel shuld be of beautiful landscapes which ALPS has it all !

I recomment to opt for Its super deluxe rooms at 1st floor which is more airy and has scope for coming sunrays inside ur room.. Food is really good but must remember to give orders on time to have more taste added in it. Staff is good and prompt.
I just felt more finishing can be done at attached BATHROOMS...when we went it was an off season so may be some renovation is been taken place as it was going on at that time too.
Over all i like the location where ALPS RESORT is located near Dalhosie Public School

We selected Alps Resort after lot of online searching and reading reviews. we reached there in the afternoon and the location itself was breathtaking. Located on the top of the hill offering a excellent view of the entire valley.

Though we got the rooms at the ground floor because all the other floors were occupied; the view from our room and front veranda was beautiful. The rooms are clean with all required amenities like TV, Heater and Geyser.

We were met by a cooperative staff who suggested various sightseeing places in Dalhousie. The main attraction of the resort is the tree house in the middle of the garden from where you can even get a romantic dinner with the cool breeze flowing with an excellent view of Dalhousie. At night, the resort lits with lights and you can leisurely walk after dinner or enjoy the campfire made my staff on request.

The food is also very good though they do not have a variety dishes but you can get well prepared and simple Chinese and Indian cuisine.

Overall, its a memorable place to stay with family and friend especially if you are going in festive season.
