The worst hotel ever in Mcleodganj...better to sleep on the road than to get Chinar Lodge. Worst hospitality. Shameless staff. It's basically a disappointment in the name of a hotel. If I were to rate it on a scale of 0-10 , I would rate it a -10 (minus ten). Tourists, personal advice. Please consider sleeping in your cars, eating... More

We are very frequent travellers to Mcleodganj. And we always stay at the Chinar Lodge. And have been doing it for ages. The Best location in the hill station. Away from the Market yet very close to it as well. The staff is simple and friendly. Rooms & toilets are spacious & clean. Luxury of a lawn & car parking... More

I stayed here in summer vacations with my family. The location is very peaceful. It is just in front of the hptdc hotel "the bhagsu". The rooms and the hotel is very spacious and clean.

I booked for 3 nights but was out within a day. Room was spacious but no tea/coffee making facility. No toiletries and hardly any hot water although there was a geezer and the shower is not powerful as the water is dribbling. For the amount that I was charged there was no breakfast and I had to move out next... More

Couldn't get the accomodation anywhere else in town as it was packed everywhere. Got it in this lodge also after there was a cancellation call while we were inquiring about the availability of the rooms at their front desk. Lucky....... I guess...... Rooms are huge with huge bathrooms. Both very average though. LOCATION is what keeps this place going. Service... More

This a small lodge little away from the market but not so far! Definitely recommend it for families. Our daughter fell ill and they looked after us so well. Meals are prepared fresh.... More

This lodge is very close to the main market. It's a very cosy homely place to stay in. Do not expect hotel treatment here. The staff is friendly and quick in fulfilling your needs. You have to pre order meals since they prepare on order only. Food is very nice and homely. Take your own toiletries. They do not provide... More

The hotel is very close to the main square of Mcleodganj but far enough to give to peace and quiet. It has a small lawn in the front where you can sit and just feel at peace with a little view of the mountains(best part, loved it). We took the family suite with the view of this lawn.It had two...

this is a small hotel,its main attraction is just 100 plus meters from the main places of Mcleodganj. good,sincere staff,nice clean and simple rooms,and a small lawn adds to the charm of the place. good for families with children,as adults can relax sitting in the lawn and kids can do down and enjoy the town.
