#3 of 72 in Dalhousie
Founded in the early 19th Century, Grand View was the favorite getaway of the British Regalia. Spread in a 3 acre estate, Grand View Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Dalhousie, a 5 minute walk from the Mall and very close to the Tourist Bureau and The Dalhousie Club. The Hotel offers Quality Service, Legendary Hospitality and attention at all times. The largest hotel in Dalhousie consisting of 53 rooms and suites, it is divided into three blocks – Imperial, Luxury and Economy. Nestling amidst the ranges of the Himalayas, the Colonial Architecture of the Imperial Block offers the perfect ambiance to rejuvenate your soul. The Imperial Block transports you to an era bye gone and at the same time, the grand elegant rooms and suites offer amenities for the modern day discerning traveller. The Luxury Block has given a new dimension to hospitality in Dalhousie where breath taking views and comfort combine in a way to give total customer satisfaction and make for a complete holiday.Dining in the majestic British Style Multi- cuisine “Tiffins” Restaurant is an enriching experience. Besides the largest Restaurant in Dalhousie we are also proud of “Summit”, the largest and only Centrally Heated Conference Hall in Dalhousie. The grandeur of the vast Terrace Lawns and the splendid and awe inspiring view from the Observation Deck gives one a semblance of a “Walk in the Clouds”. Grand View has a long history of catering to the best corporate clientele and have also played host to a number of celebrity clients and film stars. It would be our pleasure to add your name to the list of our esteemed clients.

My wife and I started our Himachal tour from Dalhousie and stayed here for 3 nights. Excellent view from room, very friendly behaviour of staff made us feel at home from the beginning. Moreover the personal touch from the owner and the manager of the hotel during breakfast and dinner added an extra warmth to the meals. The supporting staff also were very cordial and helpful. But during dinner time the dining room could have been less noisy without the guests' participation in the live music programme. The music sessions by the guests could have been held separately during game times. Some provisions for the personal driver would have been much appreciated. This would add an extra mileage to the commendable hospitality of the hotel. Last but not the least, tea bags served in the rooms should have a cover from hygiene point of view.

Hotel's Favourite
I am sure I have not written this before in any review and I am sure I will not have too many opportunities to write it again that this property needs no recommendation...its beyond that. If you are in a hurry and not keen to read the full review then quick verdict is- just go ahead and book it..you will not be disappointed Lets start from the beginning..the best rates were from the hotel itself. Also the added advantage is the way they explained the hotel, you felt you were family. For those who like to stay in the old colonial past go for the Old wing and who likes the modern thing pls go for the new wing. A simple call and yes the way the staff will explain you the package, options you feel on cloud 9 Location is bang next to the bus stand so in some aspect the lowest point of Dalhousie but then have fun trekking to the main centres. The rooms are just too good to say the least. I stayed in the Superior room and it had a electrifying view...whole moutain range visible from the room's balcony. You can see the beautiful snow capped mountain from your room!! All evenings are enjoyable as they have either bonfire nights or makes the guest play housie. The housie and games are conducted by no other than one of the owners..yes you read it right..The dinner since its most likely part of the deal is amazing. Good spread and if you express any desire to eat something then mind you it will be taken care of. The owners Radhika and Ashish visit pls read carefully each family and takes personal feedback..yes am not joking every single night each day...Now if the owner takes so much time out to meet each family then need I say more? For the management gurus there here starts a personal connect and you will come back again and again...I will and so will so many other patrons. Even the small suggestions I had the way they listened and acknowledged and worked on....phew hats off to them. The hotel is booked I mean fully booked but the owners are still grounded and want to improve..no air absolutely no air.... The breakfast is also spread out. Game room is also well maintained , I must admit this is one of the most well maintained hotels you can find. Also the open view points across the hotels gardens, walkways, common balcony views will make you come again. The hotel is a picture postcard. The owners are also respected in the whole town and their helpful nature kind of rubs to their staff. When speaking to the local shopkeepers/agent/local people you could see the respect the hotels and owners have, its a landmark hotel let me tell you that.While booking directly from the hotel I had taken suggestion of the cabs and it was also of the lofty high standards of the hotel..local helpful drivers and no absolutely no irritattion , calm composed ever helpful and so so reasonable(Thank you Sanjayji and Madan ji for making the stay so pleasant). For the other hotel staff than you for everything ..I am not naming any one as God knows how many I will miss!! I can go on and on and on..however to sum up I will say, once you decide to go to Dalhousie don't think go for the best, drop a mail to the resort and get taken care off immediately..If you vist Dalhousie and dont stay at Grand view then you will miss out on something nice !!

Hotel Grand View, Dalhousie Period of stay : May 9-11,2022 Type of room: Superior Room It was about an hour or so after we had checked into our room, there was a call in the intercom. I picked up the call and the gentleman on the other end said “Good Afternoon. Welcome to Grand View. This is Ashish, and I am the owner of this hotel. I hope you are comfortable in your room and please let us know in case you need anything else”. He further apologized for not being able to come and meet us that day since he had a prior engagement. Frankly, this is most unique call I have ever received in my entire life during my stay in all the premium hotels that’s I have stayed in India and abroad. This is an unique client experience where the owner finds time to call each day every guest who checks in to the hotel. Needless to say I was really impressed and touched by this gesture. The next day while we were having dinner a lady walks up to our table and introduces her as Radhika the owner of the hotel and again enquired whether we were enjoying our stay at the hotel. Can you believe it that the Husband / Wife owner duo does it every day of the year !! If this is not caring for your Client, then what else is ? This culture percolates down to all levels in the hierarchy. The ever smiling and affable Mr Rana, the manager of the hotel would make it a point to go to each table during breakfast and dinner to find out if the food was fine and if we needed anything. All the bearers at the restaurant too would do the same thing. Honestly, I have not come across this kind of hospitality in any hotel that I have stayed till date. Rooms : The Superior room that we stayed in( most probably 303) was spacious, well decorated and with an amazing view from the balcony. I spent hours sitting in the balcony smoking my pipe and enjoying the serenity of the place. Food: The buffet for breakfast and dinner was quite elaborate and the food was very tasty. Do try their Himachali Dahi Chicken for sure. Entertainment: The hotel takes special care to see that the guests have a good time. On the first evening of our stay there was a DJ playing on the top floor, which has both an open area and a covered area and people joined for dancing. There is also play area within the covered area for people to play Table Tennis, carrom etc. On the second day evening there was a housie game for the guests. Besides these, every day during the dinner time from 8.00 pm to 10.30 pm there is Karaoke singing by Sunny with a beautiful voice and very pleasant personality who also encourages the guests to join. I was happy to participate in both the evenings as singing is my passion. Overall it was a memorable stay and I can say for sure that I would be visiting the hotel again in future. Several of my friends after hearing about our experience are planning to go to Dalhousie and stay in Grand View Hotel. I would strongly recommend this hotel if anyone is planning to visit Dalhousie, you’ll in love like me.
