Fantabulous!!!Thats the only word i can think of for this hotel..When i arrived I was extremely skeptical as the approach of the hotel isn’t good..But once i reached all my apprehensions were put to rest..Yes the hotel is around 25 km from main Dharamshala but OMG the breathtaking view makes it worth it..The rooms are very clean and so are the washrooms..The hospitality was a ten on ten..The staff was polite and thoughtful..A special mention to Madan Vijay and Ravi...We had an issue with our car while going to the hotel from Dharamsala but the hotel helped us right from that point till the check out..whether it was ordering cigarettes for my husband to getting our car washed they went above and beyond..The hotel is very peaceful and scenic and a must visit if your looking to relax..the food is excellent especially the chicken biryani and the paneer parathas that were made for us on request..in chinese the chili chicken was good but the soup was ok..I rate this hotel 9.5 on 10 and recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet peaceful scenic getaway!!

The hotel rooms and food is very good. Service was also good and staff was very cooperative. The view from the hotel is scenic. Only Minus point of this hotel is the route. The road was very narrow and damaged. Overall experience was very good.
