“Very large spread & hotel reminiscent of British heritage buildings”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

I wanted my Dalhousie trip to be quite memorable and consequently planned a lot for the same. I booked a 6 day package to Dalhousie & Dharamshala from Antilog Vacations , a famous travel agent for Himanchal packages. We asked them to book the royal honeymoon suite for our sojourn in Dalhousie.The agent has already arranged for our honeymoon previously so it ws kindda no brainer

The Grand View Hotel, the largest hotel in Dalhousie is a grand 3 acre resort located at the heart of Dalhousie, around 5 mins from the Mall. I was told that it used to be the favourite getaway for the British Regalia till the 1850s and hence it still retains some of the Royal charm. The first thing you notice is the location of the resort and how you feel cradled amidst the heart of Himalayas. The resort offers an almost 360 degree panoramic view of the Pirpanjal range as it is located on a terrace sort of opening.

We were spoilt right after our arrival as we were welcomed with apple wine and chocolate pastries. The suite was located in the heritage wing and the butler guided us to the place. The suite was extravagance at its best. All amenities which one can imagine were present there. The room offered the rare view of sunrise and sunset from the same bed. The staff too were exceptionally courteous and friendly.

Moreover the resort arranged an exquisite candle lit dinner on the first day itself. The remaining days were also spent under abundance and we enjoyed the stay thoroughly. The experience of the same is something I will treasure for the rest of my life. My better half was so smitten by the place that he did not want to leave the place at the time of our departure.

Awesome services by tour operator as well.Their services were low cost & very good quality.Thanks to rahul sharma , abhinandan , Gopi ( our attendant ) & everyone at Grand view for making it a grand affair

Wonderful British-era hotel with a fabulous view. Rooms are nice. The hotel has a lovely old world charm. The service is excellent - the staff was always courteous, friendly, prompt and accommodating. The owner Radhika takes personal care to ensure that guests are being well taken care of. You always see her at dinner looking after her guests. The location is also very convenient - right next to the bus stand. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Take a deluxe (1st floor) or garden deluxe room (ground floor). Semi-deluxe rooms are in a new wing...

Hi...I went in Jan,12 and booked 4 nights Honeymoon Package in luxury rooms. By the time we reach Dalhaousie roads were almost closed due to snowfall but hotel owner Ms Radika was constantly in touch with us through mobile and helped us to reach there smoothly. Rooms are spacious and beautiful with all modern facilities, view from balcony is awesome. The staff, service & quality, variety and presentation of food (Veg/Non Veg) is very good. Though we have not gone to Khajjar and other places due to link roads were closed but there are lot of scenic beauty and peace there.Best hotel of Dalhaousie.

Room Tip: Go for luxury rooms are view from Balcony is very good.

Had stayed there during first week of march. We took the honeymmon package .
Room was really nice with great view . Food was also ok. Staff was also quite co-operative.
Overall a nice place to stay and relax. Most importantly the room heating is very effective which is quite important in winters there.
Prabably the best place to stay in Dalhausie.
