“Very few option”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

As there are very few accommodation option available in Dharamsala, our cab driver took us to this hotel. From the Kotwali road, this hotels looks like really good but as we came to the entrance found the hotel is under construction. The rooms were ok type, bathroom was not much clear. What you can expect at the rate of Rs. 1200, as we have to spent only 2 nights there so we decided to stay there. The view from our room balcony was amazing. The Pong Dam. The food was really terrible.

Overall, OK experience.

This hotel seems to be under rennovation which we didnt know at time of booking.Veiw from the balcony is excellent. They didnt have a formal restaurant at time of our stay. ( had one, but closed for rennovation). But they had a kitchen from where we could order. Prices are exhorbitant. 50 % more than what you can get next door. We ate at a restaurant next door where food was tasty and low prices. Sheets and towels were clean. Toliet was maintained well. Bed is not comfortable. Carpet pretty old and walls need a cot of paint ASAP :). Current stage of hotel, it is not value for money. You can get better rooms at half the price next door. We checked rates at the place where we had food. they were selling at half the price, but rooms were definitely better than pibg view.

If you look at a place where you can spend some quiet and serene moments then this is the place to be. A magnificient view of the kangra valley.

But unfotunately there is no view of the dhauladhar ranges except from the terrace of the hotel so if you are looking at the same then stay at some place near naddi village.

Staff is very courteous and polite. Food is ok type but takes time for preparation
